Rhinoplasty, also known as “nose reshaping” or a “nose job,” can improve the appearance and function of the nose. From the bridge and nostrils to the tip and overall profile of the nose, nose surgery can correct a variety of aesthetic concerns. Those with breathing problems stemming from structural impairments within the nose can also benefit from nose surgery.
Whether you feel your nose is too large, too wide, asymmetrical, or has an unattractive angle, nose surgery can improve the size, shape, and overall appearance of your nose. Rhinoplasty will help balance your facial features by creating a nose that is in better harmony with the rest of your face, which can increase your confidence and improve your overall quality of life.
Rhinoplasty can correct and relieve airway obstructions within the nose, such as a deviated septum or enlarged turbinates, to allow for normal, easier breathing. This procedure can alleviate sensations of congestion and other breathing problems related to the nasal passageway to provide you with improved comfort during your everyday life.
Nose surgery is a complicated procedure and does not always provide the expected results. Choosing a highly skilled and experienced surgeon is imperative, but there are sometimes aspects of healing that are out of the surgeon’s control. Dr. Chiu offers revision rhinoplasty to correct unsatisfactory results from a prior procedure.
As with all surgeries, there are certain risks associated with rhinoplasty. Although complications are rare, it is important to be aware of the following potential problems that can develop:
Surgical rhinoplasty requires patients to follow certain directions after the procedure to ensure they have the safest and most effective recovery possible.
Surgical splints and dressings may be applied to provide support and protection. Pain medication will be prescribed to ease any swelling and discomfort. Our Recovery Protocol, which includes supplements, vitamins, and anti-bruising medications, will begin.
Surgical splint will be removed. Patients are usually able to return to work and light activities. Swelling and bruising will begin to resolve.
Continued resolution of swelling and bruising. Light physical activities and massages will be recommended by Dr. Chiu. Patients should continue to avoid strenuous exercise and heavy lifting.
Results will be more apparent. Patients may return to their normal activities, including strenuous exercise and lifting, once cleared by Dr. Chiu. However, nasal blowing should be refrained from until Dr. Chiu permits you to do so.
At Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Inc., Dr. Chiu can recommend the procedures that will help you achieve the results you want, based on your individual needs.

Dr. Chiu is such a kind, concerned, compassionate doctor. He makes you feel a ease, gives you all the details about the treatment plan and answers all questions. I have had several procedures and have always been completely pleased with the results I recommend him to my friends and even people I don't really know.
Most rhinoplasty patients are at least 16 or 17 years old and have all of their facial growth completed. Dr. Chiu will determine if you are a candidate for rhinoplasty during your personal consultation.
Dr. Chiu performs nose surgery with the patient under general anesthesia and supervised by a board-certified anesthesiologist to ensure the highest degree of patient safety. Non-surgical rhinoplasty is performed using topical anesthetics for patient comfort.
Insurance companies may cover the cost of a rhinoplasty if it is performed to correct a structural problem that impairs breathing. However, a rhinoplasty performed solely for cosmetic purposes is not generally covered by insurance. During your consultation, Dr. Chiu will evaluate you and advise you on what to ask your insurance company regarding this.
Patients considering revision rhinoplasty should wait at least one year after their primary surgery for any residual swelling to subside and the scar tissue to soften. The reason for this delay is because even a small amount of swelling can distort the final appearance of the nose, and a revision procedure is difficult to perform when the scar tissue is still hard.
Dr. Chiu possesses exceptional skill and experience with nose surgery, and people in Beverly Hills and Los Angeles seek him for his surgical precision, mastered techniques, and remarkable ability to consistently create natural-looking results. He utilizes his thorough understanding of the aesthetics of the nose and facial anatomy to develop a customized surgical plan to meet (and often exceed) the needs and expectations of his patients.
