"I just want to say a huge thank you to Dr. DeRosa and her team! Everything from my initial consult to the surgery to my follow ups has been a really easy and positive experience for me. I started off looking for a specialized plastic surgeon with experience in facial procedures and rhinoplasty and saw that Dr. DeRosa was one of the head facial plastic surgeons for MEE. During our initial consult, Dr. DeRosa was able to treatment plan with me and answer all my questions thoroughly. She was professional and has a great personality. I never felt like I was being sold a procedure, which has always been one of my priorities when looking for a surgeon. I can't say enough nice things about her staff in the office as well. Everyone is always friendly, professional and knowledgeable. Dr. DeRosa feels like an old friend at this point. As far as my rhinoplasty, I'm really happy with the result!

"Dr. DeRosa did a perfect job on my rhinoplasty. I saw age and gravity were accentuating the bulbous tip and drawing down my profile when smiling. Jaimie clearly heard and saw the issue, expressed her vision, and performed professionally to give me the best result. I am very pleased. It looks great and just like the computer image initially projected. Moreover, she is very tuned in and caring. She is a lovely, highly trained, artistic, and perfectionistic. The facility was topnotch.

Is Rhinoplasty Right For You?
Both men and women are candidates for rhinoplasty. If you are unhappy with the overall look of your nose and have distinct issues you would like to improve, enhance, or correct, this procedure may be a great choice. It's very important that patients thoroughly understand expectations because your facial appearance will change. Furthermore, facial growth and maturity should be complete. We will address this during your consultation, especially for teens.
Rhinoplasty is performed while the patient is under IV sedation or general anesthesia and is considered an outpatient procedure. This treatment offers different surgical methods, depending on your aesthetic goals and concerns. We perform nose surgery with either a closed approach or an open method. During the procedure, our objective is to reduce excess bone, cartilage, and tissue, or to improve and add cartilage for a new shape. We will reposition the nasal features, then the skin is reformed and draped over the newly structured framework. Finally, we place sutures either on the inside portion of the nose or within the natural external fold.
What to Expect
After your nose surgery, we will carefully monitor you in the recovery suite, and then our nurses will release you to recover at home. The nose will be very swollen and bruised for a few days. In most cases, there is bruising beneath the eyes as well. Consistently using cold compresses and inflammatory medications can assist with these symptoms. To check on your healing process, we will schedule your follow-up appointment approximately one week after surgery. It generally takes around 2 – 4 weeks to look normal following nose surgery. While healing, you should avoid strenuous exercise.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does rhinoplasty cost?
Rhinoplasty cost varies based on the technique used and the complexity of the procedure. Before estimating costs, we will listen to your needs and goals to help develop your custom treatment plan. Once this is done, we can go over costs for the facility, anesthesia, and more. To get your best results, it's important to focus on selecting an experienced surgeon instead of the lowest cost. To help make your surgery easy to afford, DeRosa Center Plastic Surgery accepts many payment methods and our office can help you find low-interest medical financing.
Are there nonsurgical options to change my nose?
To smooth the appearance of lumps and bumps on your nose, a hyaluronic acid-based wrinkle filler (like Restylane or Juvéderm) might be an option. A filler can temporarily correct minor imperfections, which might help you decide to get rhinoplasty. Nose surgery is better for long-lasting results, larger changes, and to adjust the internal structure of the nose for better function. At your consultation, we will tell you more about nonsurgical nose reshaping.
What about ethnic rhinoplasty?
Ethnic rhinoplasty is about improving the nose while still keeping your cultural identity. This may be a concern if you are Asian, African-American, or Middle Eastern. In your consultation with one of our expert surgeons, please tell us your cosmetic goals or concerns. This will allow us to personalize your treatment plan and give you the best results.
Can I combine nose surgery with other facial surgeries?
Many patients consider combining rhinoplasty with another cosmetic procedure, like chin or cheek augmentation. We can discuss the various surgeries if you want a dramatic, natural-looking result. Once we understand your goals, our team can help you decide what procedures will be in your custom plan. Rhinoplasty can often help your whole face look more balanced so you should wait to see your results before considering another procedure.
