What Is Nose Reshaping?

Nose reshaping, also known as “nose job” or “rhinoplasty,” is a procedure that can enhance facial features by modifying the shape of the nose. Plastic surgeons typically recommend waiting until at least 14 or 15 years old, and possibly older for boys, as the nose may still be developing at a younger age. For teenagers considering rhinoplasty, it is essential that the decision is based on their own feelings and careful consideration, rather than influenced by parents or friends.

Dr. Joseph M. Perlman and his staff are dedicated to helping patients make informed decisions about nose reshaping. They will attentively listen to your reasons for wanting the surgery and ensure that you are on the right path. Patients from various backgrounds, including Spring, The Woodlands, and other locations in the Houston area, have benefited from their expertise. Additionally, Dr. Perlman is experienced in treating African-American, Asian, and Middle Eastern patients, providing solutions that may include grafts or implants to improve the shape of the nose for those with specific cosmetic concerns.

Am I a Good Candidate for Nose Reshaping?

Assuming you are in good health, there is no upper age limit for nose reshaping (rhinoplasty). Various indications may suggest you are a suitable candidate for the procedure, such as:

– Your nose appears disproportionately large for your face.
– A noticeable bump on the nasal bridge is evident in profile.
– When viewed from the front, your nose seems overly wide.
– The nasal tip droops or appears to plunge.
– The tip of your nose is thickened or enlarged.
– Your nostrils are excessively flared.
– Your nose appears off-center or crooked.
– Previous injuries have resulted in asymmetry in your nose.

Apart from cosmetic concerns, nose reshaping can also address specific breathing problems linked to the internal nasal structures. Dr. Perlman will evaluate whether any modifications to these structures are necessary in conjunction with reshaping your nose to achieve the best possible outcome.

What Is the Process for Nose Reshaping?

Rhinoplasty is performed using intravenous sedation or general anesthesia, and the procedure typically lasts one to two hours. There are two methods for the surgery: the closed procedure, where the incisions are concealed within the nose, and the open procedure, where an incision is made across the columella, the narrow strip of tissue that separates the nostrils. Once the incisions are made, the soft tissues covering the nose are carefully raised, allowing the nose reshaping surgeon to manipulate the nasal structure.

In some cases, nose reshaping may be combined with a facelift or other rejuvenating surgery. If you are interested in additional procedures, you can discuss your preferences with Dr. Perlman. During your initial consultation, he will provide a comprehensive explanation of the entire nose reshaping process, addressing any questions or concerns you may have.

What Does Recovery Entail After Nose Reshaping?

After undergoing nose reshaping, it is common to require a splint, internal tubes, or packing inside the nose to support the healing process. Additionally, a splint or bandages may be placed on the outside to provide support and protect the newly contoured nose. Common side effects from the procedure include soreness, swelling, and bruising, which can last for a few weeks. Some patients may also experience stiffness or numbness, especially at the tip of the nose. Typically, patients can return to work within two weeks.

Dr. Perlman and his medical team place great importance on the healing process and closely monitor all patients, whether they are from Spring, The Woodlands, or the surrounding areas. Their compassionate and comprehensive care has earned them a reputation as a top destination for nose reshaping in and around Houston. Rest assured that you will receive dedicated support and attention throughout your recovery journey.

Can I See Nose Reshaping Before and After Photos?

Nose reshaping procedures, commonly known as nose jobs, are among the most discussed cosmetic surgeries. Due to the nose’s prominent position on the face, any changes made through rhinoplasty are often noticeable right away. Before making a significant commitment to the procedure, it is essential to review nose reshaping before and after pictures. Examining these images will provide you with a clear understanding of the potential outcomes achievable with the surgery.

Dr. Perlman offers a collection of nose reshaping before and after photos for you to view, as he recognizes their effectiveness in helping you make an informed decision about the procedure. By reviewing these images, you can gain confidence and insight into the possibilities that rhinoplasty can offer, ensuring you are well-prepared for your nose reshaping journey.

What Are Nose Reshaping Costs?

Determining the cost of nose reshaping (rhinoplasty) involves considering various factors, such as the complexity and extent of the surgery, as well as the potential inclusion of other procedures performed simultaneously. During your initial consultation with Dr. Perlman and his staff, they will provide you with detailed information about the estimated cost of your nose reshaping procedure based on your specific needs and goals.

Dr. Perlman understands that financing may be a consideration for some patients, and as such, he offers finance options to make the procedure more accessible and affordable to all patients. Feel free to discuss your financial concerns and options during your consultation, and Dr. Perlman’s team will be pleased to assist you in making the best decision for your nose reshaping journey.

Every nose surgery is a unique work of art

Every individual’s nose is unique, and no two noses are exactly alike. As such, there is no one-size-fits-all approach to rhinoplasty surgery. Instead, multiple nose reshaping procedures are available to address the diverse range of nasal structures and aesthetic goals.

Dr. Perlman understands the importance of personalized care and always tailors the treatment to the individual. Whether a patient requires primary rhinoplasty or any other nose job procedure, he ensures that the outcome is a harmonious and balanced facial appearance. By customizing the approach based on each patient’s specific needs and desired results, Dr. Perlman achieves natural-looking and satisfying outcomes for his patients.

Types of Nose Surgeries


Rhinoplasty, commonly referred to as a “nose job,” is a highly sought-after and popular nose surgery. This procedure is designed to reshape the nose, enhancing its aesthetic appearance and restoring nasal function. Apart from improving the nose’s appearance, rhinoplasty can also address issues related to a deviated septum, nasal valves, and breathing difficulties, ensuring both cosmetic and functional benefits for patients.

Revision Rhinoplasty

Revision rhinoplasty is a specialized nose surgery conducted on a patient who previously underwent rhinoplasty but did not achieve the desired results or experienced damage to nasal function during the initial procedure. This corrective surgery aims to improve the nose’s appearance, ensuring that it complements and harmonizes with the overall facial features. Additionally, revision rhinoplasty addresses any functional issues that may have arisen from the previous surgery, aiming to restore proper nasal function and breathing capabilities for the patient.

Ethnic Rhinoplasty

Ethnic rhinoplasty is a specialized branch of nose surgery that considers the unique facial features of individuals from diverse ethnic backgrounds. This subspecialty caters specifically to patients of non-Caucasian heritage. In the past, traditional rhinoplasty procedures often aimed to create a standardized “Westernized” nose for all patients, neglecting the significance of ethnic diversity. However, with the evolving understanding of beauty standards and the recognition of multicultural ideals, modern ethnic rhinoplasty appreciates and respects the distinct ethnic characteristics of each individual, ensuring natural and harmonious results that complement the patient’s unique facial identity.
