What can rhinoplasty fix?

Rhinoplasty, also known as a nose job, is a versatile surgical procedure that can address a wide range of aesthetic and functional concerns related to the nose. Under the expert guidance of Dr. Brandon Kallman at FaceMiami, Rhinoplasty can effectively correct various issues, including:

  1. Nasal Tip Refinement:Rhinoplasty can reshape and refine the nasal tip to achieve a more defined and aesthetically pleasing appearance. This may involve reducing the size or projection of a bulbous or drooping tip, refining the shape, or improving symmetry.
  2. Dorsal Hump Reduction: A dorsal hump, characterized by a prominent bump or convexity on the bridge of the nose, can be effectively addressed through Rhinoplasty. Dr. Kallman can carefully sculpt the nasal bridge to create a smoother, more balanced profile.
  3. Nasal Bridge Straightening: Rhinoplasty can correct deviations or asymmetries in the nasal bridge, ensuring optimal alignment and symmetry. This may involve osteotomies (bone reshaping) to straighten the bridge and enhance overall facial harmony.
  4. Nasal Width Reduction: Individuals with a wide or broad nasal bridge may benefit from Rhinoplasty to achieve a narrower, more proportionate appearance. Dr. Kallman can perform precise osteotomies or medial osteotomies to reduce nasal width and refine the nasal contours.
  5. Nasal Symmetry Correction: Rhinoplasty can address asymmetries or irregularities in the nasal structure, ensuring balanced and symmetrical facial proportions. Dr. Kallman employs meticulous techniques to achieve harmonious results and enhance overall facial aesthetics.
  6. Nasal Breathing Improvement: In addition to cosmetic enhancements, Rhinoplasty can also improve nasal function and alleviate breathing difficulties. Dr. Kallman may address structural issues such as a deviated septum, nasal valve collapse, or enlarged turbinates to optimize airflow and enhance respiratory function.

Am I A Good Candidate for Rhinoplasty?

Whether it’s right for you depends on a number of factors, including the cosmetic and structural issues you’re looking to change, your budget, and whether you can take up to two weeks off work for recovery.

Facial features need to reach maturity before you can have a Perfect Nose Job, so teens should wait until they’re at least 17 years old.

There can be several reasons why a person might want to consider nose job to be done. The most common will be if they are unhappy with the size of the nose or the shape of the nose. It is important to remember that the nose is the centerpiece of your face, but here at FaceMiami, we don’t anyone to notice your nose. It is supposed to be another piece in the symphony called “ Your Face”. Primarily it is changed to improve the aesthetics of your face. Other cosmetic reasons can include problems that arose at a later stage, such as a flat bridge or hump that may have been due to a previous injury. There is a number of frequently asked questions about the person that would be an ideal candidate for Rhinoplasty if they fit the following categories:

If a patient believes that their nose is too large for their face or doesn’t compliment the face, they might want to consider the facial plastic surgery. Rhinoplasty may correct the shape of the nose and nasal tip, so it suits the face better and compliments the rest of the facial features.

If a person believes that the nose’s general shape is suitable; however, the nostrils are too large, wide or long, Rhinoplasty may be the perfect solution. Many patients may choose to undergo nose surgery because they can be custom altered, so they are more in sync with your nose and not prominent. Misshapen nostrils can also cause breathing difficulties for patients. Thus, Rhinoplasty can correct the size of both the nostrils so the patient can breathe adequately.

Most people have inherited features, such as a crooked or droopy nose, a pinched or bulbous nasal tip. These features can also be changed with a rhinoplasty procedure. The cartilage of the nose may be transformed to make their nose look more attractive and balanced compared with the entire face.

One might also consider this nose surgery if they have a bump or hump on the nose’s bridge. There are many different combinations of this, such as a bump caused by a bone and cartilage, or a combination. Thus, smoothing out the nose bridge can be accomplished and also help sort out the patients’ breathing problems.

Many custom rhinoplasty procedures can also be done based on the problem faced by the patient. A rhinoplasty surgeons’ skill and his level of experience and expertise, will determine which techniques he uses, as he will choose the techniques best suited to your type of skin and your configuration of cartilage and bone.  If the bridge of the nose requires more volume or the nose is asymmetrical, Thick Nose, a custom plan can be built to target the problem area. It will help improve the overall aesthetics of the nose. Rhinoplasty can also correct many other cosmetic issues concerning the nose.

This is the wider known type of nose surgery that involves altering the nose’s shape, size, and structure, nasal tip to make it more aesthetically pleasing. This will balance the nose with the rest of the facial features. Some surgical procedures that are done with cosmetic surgery include smoothing out a nasal hump or bump, shaping large nostrils and even adding volume to a flat nose bridge.

Types of Rhinoplasty

Contrary to popular belief, rhinoplasty surgery can serve many purposes. Although Rhinoplasty’s nose job is used for cosmetic purposes, it can be a vital nose surgery to improve breathing difficulties, adjust inherited nose problems, and even correct nasal structures after an accident or injury. The types of Rhinoplasty fall into five broad categories:


Functional Rhinoplasty is when the shape and size, or other nose features constrict the patient’s healthy breathing. In most cases, to improve breathing, the nose’s shape or size is altered, allowing for cosmetic benefits as well as, the benefits from functional facial plastic surgery to be realized. But often, functional plastic surgery isn’t noticed on the outside.


Not all rhinoplasty procedures may require to have a surgical approach. If the problem is minor, dermal fillers can be used to solve the problems. A minute depression in the nose, a subtle nose lift or smoothing out a small hump can sometimes be done easily, without an invasive surgery by going through the dermal filler approach.


Dedicated to correcting unsatisfactory results from previous nose surgeries, restoring both form and function to achieve the desired outcome. In those cases, corrective surgery or revisions may be needed. Some people also have their nose structures collapse within one year to few years of plastic surgery. They might also feel that too little was corrected, or the rhinoplasty results were not to their liking, because some individual results may vary, which is why they may consider revision surgery. Revision Rhinoplasty surgery should only be done by an expert in nasal surgery and always get a second opinion when seeking a revision. Also if your first plastic surgeons are going to do a revision, go ahead and get another opinion just to be on the safe side.

Closed vs. Open Rhinoplasty

As you might guess, there are multiple surgical techniques, and even some non-surgical ones used to reshape and refine the appaerance of the nose (closed rhinoplasty and open rhinoplasty).

Open Vs. Closed Rhinoplasty. Rhinoplasty surgery is usually classified as either “open rhinoplasty” or “closed.” These are the techniques of Miami’s best rhinoplasty plastic surgeons use to access structures under the skin and create the desired contour changes.

Closed Rhinoplasty (Closed Approach)

As you might guess, there are multiple surgical techniques, and even some non-surgical ones used to reshape and refine the appaerance of the nose (closed rhinoplasty and open rhinoplasty).

Open Vs. Closed Rhinoplasty. Rhinoplasty surgery is usually classified as either “open rhinoplasty” or “closed.” These are the techniques of Miami’s best rhinoplasty plastic surgeons use to access structures under the skin and create the desired contour changes.

The Open Rhinoplasty Approach (Open Approach)

As an opposite to the closed rhinoplasty. Open approach, also known as external rhinoplasty, there are good reasons that 99% of Dr. Kallman’s patients have this method. Open Approach In Rhinoplasty allows the surgeon to clear visualization and access to the entire nasal structure and tissues, including skin, muscle, cartilage, and bone.

The open approach procedure begins with making a small incision under the centre of the nose where it meets the upper lip. This spot is called the columella…

First Week After Your Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty is performed using a general anesthesia. Patients return home with a friend or family member the same day after the nose job. They’ll be advised to apply a soft ice pack for 20-minute intervals, which keeps swelling and bruising to a minimum. Miranda, our patient care coordinator, checks in with patients before and after surgery, and we’re only a call away. Dr. Kallman also provides patients with his cell phone number, just in case.

Pain relief medication is provided but rarely needed as atraumatic techniques ensure minimal discomfort. Dr. Kallman’s patients appreciate that he doesn’t use nasal packing, which often accounts for facial pressure or discomfort post-operatively.

We apply a custom-formed, waterproof cast over the nasal bridge which stays in place and protects the nose for the first week. Patients can shower regularly and even wear glasses over the cast. Rhino

Post Operative Process

On day 6, after the nose job, patients visit the clinic to have 2 small sutures and the cast removed. Sutures inside the nose are dissolvable and gradually disintegrate or fall out on their own. It’s painless to remove the cast and sutures!

It may take one to two weeks, and usually sooner, when patients are free to go out confidently in public with minimal swelling or bruising to give away their procedure. They can keep in touch with us at the clinic via email and phone, and we’ll be happy to answer any questions that arise.

By week 4-6, most people can return to the gym and play sports. We always err on the side of caution for individual cases to ensure results you’ll love for a lifetime.

We’ll schedule your second follow up appointment for 2 weeks after rhinoplasty. It’s up to you when you visit us in the future! Sometimes our patients are so busy loving life and their new look that we don’t see them for post-op photos until one year to years down the road.

Rhinoplasty Recovery Process Tips

Recovery period after rhinoplasty in Miami can be a breeze. You’ll need to take some time off and relax while you heal, but we provide our patients with plenty of advice and support to help Speed Up The Recovery and make it as comfortable as possible.
You’ll likely be excited an a little nervous when the day of your procedure comes. Miranda is our patient care coordinator, and she’ll check in with you before and after your surgery. Plus, Miami’s best Rhinoplasty Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Kallman provides patients with his cellphone number if needed.
You’re in excellent hands, and in the meantime, we’ve shared ten of our favourite rhinoplasty recovery tips below. Plan to follow these, and don’t hesitate to ask us any questions you have!

After Rhinoplasty, Use Frozen Peas Or An Icepack For Facial Swelling. Dr. Kallman will apply a waterproof cast over the bridge of your nose. It stays in place the first week to protect you when showering, wearing glasses, or applying icepacks to your eyes and cheeks for 20-minute intervals.

In the first three days, you’ll notice swelling and bruising appear, and you may look like you have black eyes, but rest-assured, we will make sure this fades quickly after the first week. The ice packs will help blood vessels to constrict and reduce swelling faster.
We’ll provide pain relief medication, but due to atraumatic techniques and no nasal packing, Dr. Kallman’s patients don’t tend to complain of discomfort or pressure in the nose after rhinoplasty.

Go For Light Walks. We’ll advise you to take it easy, but you won’t be bedridden after your Miami rhinoplasty. Taking short, gentle walks in the hours and days following surgery has a few benefits for you.

Walking keeps circulation flowing in your body and reduces the risk of blood clots. It also helps relieve constipation.
Aside from medical benefits, you might feel bored and restless cooped up inside. Take the opportunity to move around and get some fresh air when you can.
We recommend you stay out of direct sunlight and, of course, don’t break a sweat- this is not meant to be aerobic exercise.
By 3-4 weeks, most patients safely return to cardiovascular activity. By 4-6 weeks, the bones in your nose will be stable so you can resume weightlifting and wearing glasses.

Take It Easy For Roughly 10 Days. Many busy professionals have a hard time winding down and taking the week or two they need off work.

The care you take to heal well in these early days could help the rest of your recovery to go smoothly.
Playing sports, swimming, and strenuous exercise increases blood pressure in your face, risk of injury and infection.
This is a great time to work from home, ask for extra help with children and pets, and let the housework wait a while.

Miami Rhinoplasty Recovery Diet- Eat Well And Avoid A Few Things.

Dr Brandon Kallman’s Rhinoplasty patients at our Miami office ask what they should eat after surgery. We tell them a well-balanced, healthy diet packed with vitamins and minerals is a good bet. There are some things you’ll want to cut back on or avoid altogether, however.For the first week, and until you’re no longer taking pain medication, avoiding alcohol is advised. Salt encourages fluid retention, so we also recommend you refrain from adding salt or eating high-sodium foods for two weeks after rhinoplasty. Avoiding spicy food is also a good idea. You may love your snacks flaming hot, but spices like chillies irritate the nasal passages which not only feels uncomfortable but can cause sneezing or swelling.

Attend Your Scheduled Post-Operative Appointments. You’ll have a couple of appointments scheduled with us, so Dr. Kallman can monitor your recovery. On day 6, we’ll remove two small sutures and your cast, then share instructions to follow from that point on. Even if you’re feeling great and everything’s on track, we recommend you keep those first two appointments.

Keep Your Head Up. We recommend you keep your head up as much as possible for the first two weeks because it helps prevent and reduce swelling in the face.

Though recovery after rhinoplasty in Miami is considered straightforward, one of the trickier aspects can be sleeping in a different position. Additionally, sleeping on your side or front is a no-no for at least six weeks. Aside from feeling uncomfortable, you could displace your nose if you put pressure on it all night.

You can prop your head and shoulders up with a stack of pillows or foam wedges. To prevent rolling over in your sleep, pillows placed alongside your body under the arms are also useful.

If sleeping on your back feels strange to you, try to get in the habit sometime before your procedure.

Risks and Recovery from Rhinoplasty:

While Rhinoplasty yields remarkable results, it’s essential to be aware of potential risks and the recovery process:

  • Risks: These include but are not limited to bleeding, infection, adverse reactions to anesthesia, poor wound healing, and unsatisfactory cosmetic outcomes. Dr. Kallman meticulously mitigates risks through personalized care and surgical precision.
  • Recovery: Following Rhinoplasty, patients can expect temporary swelling, bruising, and nasal congestion, gradually subsiding over several weeks. Dr. Kallman provides comprehensive postoperative instructions and closely monitors patients’ progress to ensure optimal healing and outcomes.

Avoid Overheating.You may like to sweat and bake in the sun, take long hot showers, or relax in the sauna. Even heating things up with hot foods and liquids may cause facial tissue to swell more.We advise that you eat room-temperature foods, avoid hot soup, and stay cool for the first few weeks to reduce your nasal inflammation faster.

Avoid Sun Exposure On Your Face.Speaking of heat, there’s another reason to avoid basking in the sun while you recover. With sunny Miami weather calling, you may be tempted to stay out in the sun during recovery.It’s always recommended that you use quality UV protection. However, while your skin is swollen and incisions are going through the healing process, tanning may cause skin discolouration, darkened scars, and increased swelling.

Avoid Nicotine. Your board certified plastic surgeon will ask you to avoid smoking and using nicotine products before and after rhinoplasty surgery because nicotine constricts blood flow in the skin. You need all the healthy blood circulation possible to heal fast and avoid complications. Try to avoid even second-hand smoke if you can.

Prepare To Be Patient For Rhinoplasty Results! Miami rhinoplasty patients are delighted to see rapid changes and a new look within just weeks of rhinoplasty surgery. However, the residual swelling that lingers in soft tissue – especially Nasal Tip – can take several months to resolve.
