Rhinoplasty (Nose Surgery) Chicago

realself-top100-doctor-2015Nose surgeries, or the rhinoplasties, are one of the most common plastic surgery procedures performed today.  This procedure reshapes the nose to attain a greater self-confidence and more balanced look to your overall appearance.

Rhinoplasty may be performed for functional rather than cosmetic reasons as well. Combining nose reshaping with septoplasty or endoscopic sinus surgery can effectively treat certain breathing problems, such as those caused by a deviated septum.
Rhinoplasties are not always performed for cosmetic purposes, but for functional reasons as well.  Often, nose reshaping surgeries like septoplasties or endoscopic sinus surgeries are performed to correct a deviated septum, which causes breathing problems.


Goals of Rhinoplasty
  • Rhinoplasty is an excellent procedure for achieving the following:
  •  1. Balance the size of the nose with the other facial features
  •  2. Modify the width of the nose at the bridge
  •  3. Improve the nasal profile, including removing humps or depressions
  •  4. Contour a nasal tip that is too large, “boxy,” drooping or upturned
  •  5. Change the angle between the nose and the mouth
  •  6. Narrow and reshape the nostrils
  •  7. Correct asymmetry or deviation
Frequently Asked Questions
I have breathing problems. Will insurance cover my rhinoplasty?
Insurance may cover a portion of the operating room and anesthesia. Please bring your insurance card to your consultation, and we can submit a predetermination on your behalf to see what your insurance coverage will be. You will only be required to pay your co-pay at your consultation.
How do I know if I am a candidate for rhinoplasty?
If you do not like the way your nose looks and are willing to undergo a surgical procedure, and if you are in good physical and mental health, then you are eligible for a rhinoplasty consultation. During your consultation with the doctor, he will talk with you in detail and examine you. Then, he will explain his expectations for your surgery and will let you know if he thinks you are a good candidate.
Do I have to stay overnight in the hospital?
No, this is outpatient surgery. Our patients typically go home after surgery; or, when they are from out-of-town, they stay at one of a number of fine hotels in the area.
Is there a lot of pain or nausea?
Not typically. Time after time, patients are surprised at how little pain and how little nausea there is. After surgery, pain is usually well-controlled with a mild narcotic.

Hello from Iraq. You performed surgery on my eyes in April of 2007 and I was called to Iraq in August 2007. I can see! You probably saved my life with the mission I have. It is beautiful not to be dependent on glasses. With the quality sun glasses we have, Oakley and ESS, my eyes are fully protected unlike those wearing prescription sunglasses. Thank you, ”
