Rhinoplasty is among the most complex procedures in aesthetic surgery, and requires the skills of a top-level plastic surgeon. Some patients come to us because they want noses that fit their faces better while others seek our help because they are no longer able to breathe through the nose after having a rhinoplasty procedure. Whether you are looking for a nasal tip refinement, a major bump removal, or a revision rhinoplasty to correct a previous surgery, Dr. White is a double board certified recognized leader in the field of rhinoplasty and can reshape and restore function to noses of all different shapes and sizes.

Primary Rhinoplasty (Nasal Sculpting) Surgery in Miami

Rhinoplasty, which is often called a nose job, is a type of plastic surgery procedure involving the reshaping of the nose for functional or cosmetic reasons. In terms of functionality, some patients undergo primary rhinoplasty surgery to improve breathing function. Primary rhinoplasty refers to a first-time procedure. Secondary rhinoplasty indicates that a patient has already undergone a previous rhinoplasty surgery. These procedures are typically more complicated than primary rhinoplasty surgeries because Dr. White will need to work with scar tissue and any healing problems created by a previous surgery.

Goals of Rhinoplasty

In terms of functionality, the goal of primary rhinoplasty is to ensure that the patient is capable of clear and easy breathing. When the procedure is for cosmetic reasons, every person’s goal is unique. Through aging, trauma, or birth defects, many patients feel less than confident due to an unbalanced nose that is out of harmony with the other facial features. Trauma can lead to bumps, cuts, or depressions on the nose that are permanent. With our cosmetic Miami rhinoplasty, these blemishes can be removed completely from the face, restoring a more youthful and beautiful appearance.

Cosmetic Rhinoplasty Surgery in Miami

Cosmetic nose surgery, often called cosmetic rhinoplasty in the plastic surgery field, is used to improve the facial appearance by altering the proportions of the nose. Many patients choose such a procedure to improve self-confidence. Cosmetic rhinoplasty is also a procedure used to correct flaws from trauma or birth defects. With cosmetic surgery, we can successfully remove bumps and change the size of the nose, the nostrils, bridge, or tip.

Planning a Cosmetic Rhinoplasty Procedure

Before undergoing the actual cosmetic rhinoplasty procedure, lab testing and a medical evaluation will be required. Photographs of the nose will be taken and a medical image morphing program will be used as a communication tool to demonstrate potential post-op results for the patient to review before determining whether the surgery is right for them.

To reshape the nose, the surgery is performed using either a closed procedure or open procedure. The closed rhinoplasty procedure involves an incision hidden in the interior of the nose, whereas an open procedure involves an incision along the narrow strip of tissue separating the nostrils called the columella. Dr. White prefers the closed rhinoplasty approach for most of his patients since this reduces the amount of pain, swelling, and bruising after surgery and avoids a scar on the nose.

Recovery After a Rhinoplasty

It is vital to follow doctor’s instructions during your recovery. Applying an ice pack around your nose can help to decrease swelling over the first 24 hours. Keep your head elevated to reduce bleeding or swelling; use extra pillows in bed to prop your head higher than usual. Do not blow your nose for at least one week following the surgery, and the rule is “blot, don’t blow.” Avoid heavy lifting or straining for two weeks. Do not take aspirin during this period, as it thins blood and can slow clotting, increasing the chance of bleeding. Every person heals at a different rate, but our medical professionals will be carefully monitoring your progress after surgery and are always available to answer questions.

Big Nostrils: Surgery to Enhance the Nose by Reducing Nostril Size

Many patients interested in aesthetic nose surgery are concerned about an oversized nose, bulge, or other less attractive structure. In some cases, patients have come to our practice as they have wide, overlarge nostrils and would like a more pleasing nose structure. It is entirely possible to narrow broad or wide nostrils using a nasal base reduction or what is called a “Weir excision,” which narrows the base of the nostrils to reduce size.

During this procedure, a small crescent-shaped piece of tissue is removed from each side of the nostrils. For some cases of big nostrils, a small incision in the interior of the nostrils will be needed to achieve the most attractive result. Your surgeon will remove a wedge from each nostril and then carefully stitch incisions closed to form a smaller nostril opening. The scar is minimal, and there is no need to worry about flaws in appearance after healing, as the incisions are well hidden in a natural crease. The aftercare procedure for such a nose surgery is usually quite simple, simply requiring the application of antibiotic ointment twice daily during the first week after surgery. You need to try to refrain from sneezing, and avoid any heavy lifting for approximately two weeks.

Choosing Your Rhinoplasty Surgeon

Choosing a plastic surgeon for rhinoplasty in Miami may be one of the most difficult – and important – decisions you will make regarding your face. Many plastic surgeons perform rhinoplasty procedures, but lack the skill and experience to be fully successful in this complicated and precise procedure. At our practice, we are often asked to repair and restore a botched nose job, so we have seen many errors that left patients with breathing problems or an oddly shaped or unattractive nose after surgery.

“Rhinoplasty Is My Passion.”

Beyond his focus on rhinoplasty procedures, Dr. White also has expertise in a wide variety of other aesthetic procedures, including facelifts, eyelid lifts (blepharoplasty), breast augmentation, and tummy tuck procedures (abdominoplasty). His wide client base includes patients from all walks of life, from Miami models, busy moms, physicians, to active business professionals who come to him for his minimally invasive treatments, and less post-surgical swelling and downtime.

Dr. White uses his background in plastic surgery and otolaryngology (specializing in conditions of the ear, nose and throat) to identify and correct the underlying causes of medical problems and cosmetic imperfections of the nose and face, and procedures that achieve a natural and balanced appearance. During the initial consultation, he will listen closely to your goals and expectations, and explain what can be accomplished in surgery. Dr. White’s goal is to achieve a beautiful and functional nose that fits within the patient’s unique aesthetic and ethnic ideals.

Nose Job Miami Review

Review StarsI've never met a doctor so kind, compassionate, and truly loves what he does. I've worked for many physicians and I've never come across a physician that can even compare to Dr. White. I had a rhinoplasty/septoplasty with a turbinate reduction approx. 6 weeks ago and I'm already in love with my new nose. There really are no correct words to describe Dr. White because he is just amazing in every way possible. He made me feel comfortable the moment I stepped into his office.

Miami Rhinoplasty Review

Review StarsDr. Jeremy White is the absolute best plastic surgeon! I did a lot of searching around when I was deciding who to use for my nose job. I wanted to use a doctor who has amazing aesthetic results but also really understands the anatomy of the nose. I come from a medical family and asked many other doctors in the area and they all told me that Dr. White was the only person that they would use. I have had major nosebleeds and breathing problems for years, and Dr. White was the first plastic surgeon who addressed my concerns relating to both my breathing problems and my appearance. He was extremely knowledgeable about my nasal anatomy (I have heard some horror stories about other plastic surgeons collapsing patients noses during rhinoplasty procedures) and kept asking me what bothered me rather than trying to convince me to get additional unnecessary surgeries. Dr. White has a wonderful personality and clearly cares about all of his patients and making sure they get beautiful, natural results. It is obvious that he puts his patients’ safety first and is extremely meticulous. My surgery was performed about two months ago. I had some swelling initially, as I was told I would, but I was immediately able to see what a great job was done. Dr. White checked up on me immediately and made sure that I was healing well. Two months later, the swelling in my tip has come down and my nose looks fantastic. Equally as important, I am breathing so much better and no longer need multiple humidifiers in my already humid room to prevent nosebleeds. Getting my nose done was one of the best things I could have done for myself, and I am so grateful that I choose Dr. White as my surgeon!”

Nose Job in Miami Testimonial

Review StarsI just had a septoplasty-rhinoplasty-turbinate reduction surgery 10 days ago with Dr. White. Coming from a family of many physicians, which include my husband, 2 of our children and my brother and nephews, and having worked in my husband’s office for many years, I could observe firsthand how important a good bedside manner is in a doctor’s relationship with his/her patients. I only have wonderful things to say about Dr. White. He is very caring, professional, and competent. He made feel at ease in his office as well as in the surgery center, right before the procedure. Besides being very skillful and knowledgeable, he went above and beyond to make sure I had the best possible care. He treated me like family, patiently addressing my concerns, without ever making me feel like a nuisance. I highly recommend Dr. White to anyone who is considering plastic surgery in the future. After only 10 days I can breathe much better, and my nose, despite some light swelling, already looks great! No bruises whatsoever! Amazing! I couldn’t be happier with the results!

Rhinoplasty Testimonial

Review StarsIn June 2014, Dr. White performed a Septoplasty on me. More than one year has passed since the procedure and I cannot tell you how happy I still am with the result. I have been breathing normally, no more nasal congestion or sinusitis this past year!! Beside those great outcomes, the whole experience of dealing with Dr. White before and after the procedure was very good, Dr. White is very professional, and also very caring. But most of all, he does a very good job!

Cost of Rhinoplasty

Currently, the most recent average cost for primary rhinoplasty is $4,694, as reported by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. However, this price does not include additional costs such as anesthesia and facility fees that are part of performing surgery in a controlled and pain-free manner. The actual price for the procedure will vary depending on a variety of factors including whether the surgery is a primary or revision surgery, how much work is required, how complex the operation will be, and how much time under anesthetic is needed for an individual surgical procedure. The usual costs range from $5,000 to $15,000. The highest costs are for the most complex revision surgeries, and those lowest costs are for the most simply performed primary surgeries. Rhinoplasty surgery, when correctly performed will create a long-lasting result, and typically involves more than just shaving down a bump. Dr. White will explain the complexities of your individual operation in your consultation. If cost is a limiting factor, ARC Plastic Surgery offers a range of easy financing options.
