How Is Rhinoplasty Performed?

Rhinoplasty is performed under IV sedation as an outpatient procedure. This treatment offers different surgical methods, depending on your cosmetic concerns and problems. Dr. Rough performs nose surgery with either an open or closed technique. The objective during surgery is to reshape or get rid of excess cartilage, tissue, and bone to create facial balance and fix an obstructed airway. The nose is repositioned, and the skin is draped over the newly improved framework. Sutures are placed either on the inside portion of the nose or within the natural external fold. The nose may also be placed in a splint for added support.

Dr. Rough and his entire staff are incredible. From start to finish, they are compassionate, empathetic, and thorough. From the consult to the operation I felt I was taken care of by professional, genuinely caring people. I’ve had a few cosmetic surgeries and I always get sick from the anesthesia, Dr. Rough’s anesthesiologist is the most wonderful sweet human being I’ve ever met. Everyone that is on his team is amazing and just as sweet. You will be in good hands with anything Dr. Rough does. I am writing this review day of surgery and I am feeling great. I highly recommend Dr. James Rough if you are looking for a skilled and caring surgeon with a team that will take care of you from start to finish. I cannot wait for my results!

Rhinoplasty FAQs

How much does rhinoplasty cost?

The cost of nose reshaping surgery varies based on what technique is used and how complex your procedure is. Before estimating costs, Dr. Rough will listen to your needs and goals to help develop your custom treatment plan. Once this is done, he can discuss costs for the facility, anesthesia, and more. To get your best results, it's important to select an experienced surgeon, like Dr. Rough, instead of the cheapest cost. To help make your surgery easy to afford, James Rough, M.D. Plastic Surgery accepts many payment methods, and our office can help you find low-interest financing.

Will my insurance cover functional nose surgery?

While rhinoplasty to improve your appearance is not paid by insurance, if your nose reshaping surgery is considered medically necessary to improve your breathing, some of your costs may be covered by insurance. If you are considering applying for reimbursement from your insurance, please tell Dr. Rough during your consultation. Our office will help you submit any needed paperwork and information to your insurance to properly process your claim.

Are there nonsurgical options to change my nose?

If you want to smooth the appearance of lumps and bumps on your nose, a hyaluronic acid-based wrinkle filler (like Juvéderm or Restylane) may be an option. An injectable filler can temporarily improve minor imperfections on your nose, which may help you decide if you want to get a rhinoplasty. Nose surgery is better for long-lasting results, larger changes, and adjusting the internal structure for better function. At your consultation, Dr. Rough can tell you more about nonsurgical nose reshaping.
