If you’ve ever felt unhappy with your nose, then Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Group can help. Dr. John Layke specializes in the rhinoplasty procedure utilizing advanced methods and incorporating cutting-edge technology, blending science and artistry with each procedure.
What is Rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty is a procedure performed to correct the shape and in some cases the functionality of the nose. There are many reasons a person might seek rhinoplasty as a corrective measure beyond simply aesthetic enhancement purposes, though this is certainly a common reason for seeking the procedure in and of itself.
There Are Many Reasons for One to Consider a Rhinoplasty Procedure:
You may have a nose that isn’t proportionate to the rest of your face. Your nose may be too large or too small. Your nasal bridge might have a bump. Noses are such intricate creations, which lead to distinctions, some more welcome than others.
Through the rhinoplasty procedure, Dr. Layke can change the shape of your nose and nostrils. We can give your nose contour and balance, changing the dynamics of your face drastically, if that is the ambition. Whether the procedure is cosmetic or has functional benefits to the patient, Dr. Layke performs the rhinoplasty procedure with precision and craft.
So who is the right candidate for the rhinoplasty procedure at Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Group? You may be a qualified candidate for rhinoplasty if you’re unhappy with certain qualities of your nose. It can be anything from structure and shape to size. You might have trouble breathing, which would also make you a fine candidate for this specialized procedure.
We can talk more about it during your initial consultation, which we can schedule any time. If you have questions about rhinoplasty, please read on, as we go further into the preparation and actual procedure.
First, more on the Doctor:
Dr. Layke is a double board-certified, Patient’s Choice Award-winning plastic and reconstructive surgeon in Beverly Hills, specializing in the rhinoplasty procedure. He’s been half of the driving force of Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Group alongside Dr. Danielpour for over 7 years and counting. He has trained at Nassau University Medical Center in plastic and reconstructive surgery and completed his General Surgery Residency Program at the University of Illinois Metropolitan Group Hospital. Dr. Layke has been published multiple times over in notable journals and has appeared on Extra, Home & Family TV, and Entertainment Tonight.
Dr. Layke strives to combine cutting edge technology with advanced, personalized procedures that blend science and craft, creating a custom-tailored aesthetic enhancement experience for each individual patient.
There are many variables that go into rhinoplasty cost. Since no two noses are the exact same, we will custom-tailor the pricing to suit the work that needs to be done. You will never have to pay for one-size-fits-all rhinoplasty work with Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Group.
Generally, rhinoplasty is considered cosmetic work and will likely not be covered by insurance providers. Septoplasty can often be paired with rhinoplasty, which entails correcting the septum when the patient is having trouble breathing. If a septoplasty is being considered, your insurance provider may very well provide some amount of coverage for this aspect of the procedure.
To learn more about cost and rhinoplasty financing, contact Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Group. We’ll walk you through the process and can even arrange a tour of our facilities, including the brand new Stitch Surgery Center.
Preparation for Your Rhinoplasty Procedure
We’ll spend a significant amount of time with you, discussing the qualities of your nose you would like to address. Together, we’ll cultivate realistic yet ambitious goals, working to achieve the look and shape that you desire.
Communication is always key, and that’s how we’ll foster achievable goals together. We will never mislead you. We’ll treat you with dignity and with honesty. We’ll go over historical precedence, showing you our before and after photos which bear results that Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Group is capable of. Dr. Layke always prefers to aim for a more natural look instead of performing procedures that yield a “worked-on” sort of aesthetic.
What to Expect From Your Rhinoplasty Procedure
Rhinoplasty by Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Group can be broken down into two categories. Open rhinoplasty and closed rhinoplasty.
Open Rhinoplasty — Involves a precise incision along the columella (cartilage separating the nostrils). From this position, skin can be lifted, exposing the underlying structure of the nose, which Dr. Layke can skillfully reshape and resize. This method generally yields the more drastic changes.
Closed Rhinoplasty — Incisions are made inside the nose only, through which Dr. Layke can reshape the nose accordingly. This method is generally reserved for more minor changes.
Both open and closed rhinoplasty are extremely effective procedures when done at Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Group. Once we’ve met with you and cultivate realistic aesthetic enhancement goals, we will determine the right procedure for you. We pride ourselves in offering a custom-tailored experience for each individual patient.
Rhinoplasty procedures can be both reconstructive and reductive. Through either incision, Dr. Layke can remove excess cartilage and bone matter which will reshape your nose accordingly. Native nasal structure can also be reshaped, creating a new, more symmetrical, more aesthetically-pleasing nose in the process.
Dr. Layke has performed a multitude of rhinoplasty surgeries, some due to a patient’s dissatisfaction with their nose, others that are done more as rhinoplasty revisions, due to a previous surgeon who does not practice conservative aesthetic enhancement procedures. Dr. Layke always prefers to keep as much of the original nose structure as possible, leading to results the patient can enjoy for the rest of their days. Just as with any other edifice, your nose is going to need support to keep looking natural. Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Group can improve the aesthetic value, but also the structural integrity and functionality of your nose.
Once the surgery has been completed, Dr. Layke will close the incisions with precision and care, ensuring minimal scarring. Please take a look at our gallery of extensive before and after photos to get a visual idea of the sorts of results that we can consistently achieve at Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Group.
As with any surgical procedure, we encourage you to plan for some downtime. Might be a great time to catch up on some podcasts or binge watch some Netflix. The first week will be very important, at which time we strongly suggest you protect your new nasal structure.
There are several ways that you can help reinforce your body’s healing processes. Wearing button-up shirts is a start, that way you’re not pulling fabric over your nose multiple times per day. Sleeping with your head elevated and making sure to eat soft foods or even opt for a smoothie diet for the first week will give your nose the room it needs to heal. Avoid salty foods or spicy foods, because you want to also avoid blowing your nose. Taking baths instead of showers will also help facilitate the healing process.
It’s perfectly normal for you to experience some bruising, swelling, and nasal stuffiness or congestion. It might make you a bit uncomfortable, but we’ll do everything we can to ensure a most comfortable transition, prescription medication included. Of course if you experience anything beyond discomfort, such as intense pain, bleeding, or especially if you experience an injury to your new nose, please contact Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Group immediately.
We’ll give you all the support you need with intensive follow-up services. We’ll assess your progress and make sure that your body is healing properly. Dr. Layke makes it a point to be very interactive with his patients before, during, and after the procedure.
