The nose plays a big role in the appearance of the entire face. It is no surprise that many people who are unhappy with the appearance of the nose are interested in exploring all available treatment options. Some noses are crooked or asymmetrical, either from birth or due to a traumatic injury, or positioned off-center. Many patients come to us to resolve a visible bump on the bridge of their nose that detracts from their overall appearance, particularly the profile view. Nasal tips can be droopy or enlarged, or nostrils may be large, deformed, or unsightly, leading to significant embarrassment. Or perhaps it is difficult for you to identify exactly what you don’t like about your nose – you just know that you don’t like the way it looks, and you want to explore your options.

Some people also investigate various cosmetic nose surgeries for medical reasons such as deformed or oddly-shaped noses that impair breathing, or exacerbating allergies, asthma, sleep disorders, or other medical conditions.

Traditional Rhinoplasty vs. Non-Surgical Options

Traditional rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure that involves creating an incision in the nose and then altering the structure of the cartilage and bone to achieve a more attractive size and shape. If extra cartilage is needed, it may be removed from the ear or rib cage prior to the surgery. Immediately after surgery, your nose will be packed with gauze and/or a splint to hold everything in place while it heals for several days. Initial swelling last several weeks, and bruising may persist for some time before the result is fully achieved.

For people who seek to cosmetically alter their nose but don’t want all the drawbacks, or the expense, of surgery, non-surgical rhinoplasty in San Diego (also called the “non-surgical nose job”) may be the best option. This involves reshaping the nose using dermal fillers rather than trimming or adding cartilage, and may also include the use of BOTOX or various other products to achieve the desired result. In addition to being non-invasive and therefore relatively risk-free, non-surgical nose jobs all but eliminate the need for downtime. Depending on the procedure performed, there may be some swelling, bruising, and tenderness in the nose and surrounding area, but with a non-surgical nose job, you can expect to see the results you want in as little as an hour after treatment.

PRACTICE POLICY UPDATE REGARDING COVID-19

Coronavirus (Covid-19) Update

Updated March 17th, 2020

After serious consideration and in line with the recommendations of our State and Centers for Disease Control (CDC), we are closing the practice until April 13th, 2020.

Your health and well-being is our primary concern and we want to do our part to make sure that you are protected.

Effective immediately the following will occur:

  • All procedures and in-person consultations will be suspended until March 30th.
  • The office will be closed but we will see our urgent follow-ups.
  • We are instituting Virtual Consultations for all potential patients.
  • No patient will ever have any financial recourse for rescheduling their procedures.

We are constantly updating our services and staffing according to the local and national recommendations and will always place your health and well-being as our top priority.

We continue to exercise all the latest recommendations that are handed down by the CDC. These include:

  • Staff have been fully informed and trained to understand the disease process and its modes of transmission.
  • All staff, vendors and ancillary personnel are being asked to refrain from coming to this office if they have any signs or symptoms of a cold or an upper respiratory tract infection.
  • Every patient is also being asked to refrain from coming to the office if they have any symptoms.
  • We are asking our patients about any pertinent travel history.
  • Hand-washing continues to be the most important mode of prevention. Although it is a part of what we constantly do, now we are doing so with heightened vigilance and attention.
  • We have instituted a “no handshakes no hug” policy for now.
  • We have asked all vendors that any unnecessary meetings are canceled until further notice.
  • Any exit and entrance from our office are followed by a protocol of changing shoes, scrubs and sanitization.
  • As we are an accredited medical facility, we are constantly sanitizing all surfaces. We have now vamped that up and our routine, multiple times a day, wiping down all surfaces, desks, door handles, keyboards and restroom facilities. We have assigned a person that does so on a constant basis.

Although Covid-19 is a serious issue, we strongly believe that it will pass and hopefully make our infrastructure and our ability to deal with pandemics in this Country even better than it currently is. We are monitoring this situation on a real-time basis and will not sit back until we know that we have done everything possible to avoid unnecessary exposure.
