But what happens when you aren't happy with what nature gave you?
You may feel self-conscious, wondering how other people see you. It leaves you feeling insecure and wondering if it's possible to help nature give you a better option. That possibility is a reality with expert Rhinoplasty in Beverly Hills.
At the Plastic Surgery Institute, we understand the challenge of finding viable options to improve your appearance while maintaining a natural look. The skill and experience necessary to achieve such a goal are rare, and we're committed to helping you meet that challenge.
Nowhere in plastic surgery is "naturalness" more desirable, necessary, and emphasized than in Rhinoplasty. Smooth contours and refined features often occur naturally. But when they don't, it takes experience and expertise to give nature a little help.
Rhinoplasty involves adjusting the bony and cartilaginous components beneath the skin that give the nose its shape. It's sort of like a puzzle where you get to alter the pieces to fit them together better.
A wall separates the two sides of the nose, called a septum. A simple procedure reduces the breathing passage (airway). This surgery includes making cosmetic changes, making this the very best time to attend to this functional, medically necessary issue. About half of the Beverly Hills rhinoplasty procedures we perform at the Plastic Surgery Institute have a combination of functional and cosmetic elements.
Often, we meet patients who have had nasal surgery before, and the result is somehow lacking. All is not lost. With our advanced techniques, we can help you achieve that result you always wanted but found elusive. Recovery with these new techniques is faster and easier than ever.
We live in the age of sub-specialization. Nowhere is that more true than it is in nasal surgery. Dr. Ordon and Dr. Villanueva have a national reputation as some of the best surgeons for Rhinoplasty Beverly Hills has to offer and as a top revision rhinoplasty surgeon. Dr. Ordon's dual residency training in Otolaryngology/Head & Neck Surgery and Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery is the foundation on which he has built one of the country's premier Rhinoplasty surgery practices.
Few other plastic surgery operations have the impact and benefit of Rhinoplasty. After all, everyone has a nose, and it's right there, in the middle of your face. There is even that old saying, “It's as plain as the nose on your face!” So when a nose has distracting or incongruous characteristics, it can be the cause of sadness.
But the "nose job" is probably the most famous procedure of all plastic surgery. Everyone knows that noses get "done," so you don't have to live with a nose you don't like. Still, many people are afraid of the operation, worried that it won't come out right or everyone will know they did it. Natural-looking nose surgery results are the norm today. Since about ninety percent of nose surgeries look natural, few people notice any work at all. If anything, the result of nasal surgery is a nose that "fits in" with the other facial characteristics. The final product often looks more natural than the nose with which you were born. "Natural noses" is the expert plastic surgeon's mantra.
The Doctors at the Plastic Surgery Institute love what they do. If you want the highest quality of care from industry leaders who are as approachable as they are professional, you will find a perfect partner for your procedure at the Plastic Surgery Institute in Beverly Hills.

Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure that can enhance the nose's shape and profile to fit the face better. The process may also correct structural defects that impair breathing or have come about due to trauma.
Typically, rhinoplasties effectively change the nose size for facial balance, adjust the nostrils' width, smoothing the nasal profile or the bridge, and enhance an enlarged or bulbous nasal tip correcting nasal asymmetry.
Depending on the structure operated on, the method may be performed in an "open" or "closed" technique. An open procedure involves an incision at the fleshy bridge between the nostrils called the columella. The closed procedure is performed within the nostrils.
The optimal age to undergo Rhinoplasty is between 20 and 40 years old. During this age range, the composition of your skin is best suited for surgery.
People choose to undergo rhinoplasty for a number of reasons.
They may want to change the shape or size of their nose. Some may wish to correct a hump or dip or create a nose that gives a more symmetrical appearance. Some may have experienced an injury that left their nose damaged and will want to undergo Rhinoplasty to correct it. Still, others may have a structural issue, like a deviated septum, that Rhinoplasty can correct.
Since Rhinoplasty is considered an elective procedure, most insurance does not cover the cost. However, if the procedure is to correct a condition, such as a deviated septum, insurance coverage may be available. Additionally, if the procedure is both cosmetic and structural, it may be possible to have a portion of the cost covered by health insurance.
As you start to consider Rhinoplasty, discuss your goals with your doctor. A pre-operative consultation is a significant contributor to a successful and satisfying procedure. You might consider bringing photographs that depict what kind of look you desire.
In the two weeks leading up to your surgery, refrain from taking any of the following common pain medications: aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen, and other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, Vitamin E, and herbal supplements. If you must take something for pain, acetaminophen is preferred. You should also not smoke as nicotine and tobacco can slow down the healing process. After midnight the day before, do not eat or drink anything, including water.
Arrange for someone to drive you home and stay with you for the first 24 hours after your procedure. While you should not eat or drink anything, and required medications may be taken with a small sip of water. We encourage you to wear loose-fitting clothing and do not wear any makeup.
After a consultation, you will receive either a general anesthetic, putting you to sleep, or a local anesthetic, involving the administration of a sedative to relax you and a numbing agent in the nose area to prevent you from feeling any pain.
Rhinoplasty is a permanent procedure whose results will last your entire life. It will take some recovery time to appreciate the full impact of the procedure, and some people elect to have minor touch-up work done, but most are pleased with the final results.
No matter what brought you here, a visit with our doctors will bring out the best in you. Call us today to schedule your initial consultation, either in person or online.
