What is rhinoplasty? 

Rhinoplasty is the term used for cosmetic nose surgery, and it’s one of the most commonly performed facial plastic surgery procedures. Rhinoplasty is done to improve imperfections of the nose, including prominent nasal bridge bumps, crookedness, a nose that is overly long, and more. Nose surgery can also be done to improve functionality. Dr. Jason Bloom tailors every nose surgery procedure for the individual patient’s concerns, needs, and desired outcomes. Many of Dr. Bloom’s patients say that getting a nose job was the best decision that they have ever made, and they don’t know why they waited so long to have it done. He receives messages from patients on a daily basis saying how happy they are with their nose, and how worthwhile undergoing rhinoplasty was.

FAQ

How much does rhinoplasty cost?

At Dr. Bloom’s Bryn Mawr and Philadelphia area practice, primary rhinoplasties start between $8,000-$10,000 (not including anesthesia or facility fees). Revision rhinoplasty (a secondary nose surgery) is more expensive and the pricing will depend on what needs to be done, such as ear cartilage, rib cartilage, or irradiated rib cartilage grafting.

Will my nose look fake? Too pinched, upturned, or “scooped out”?

Dr. Bloom will not give you a fake-looking or odd-looking nose. He is a top nose surgery specialist with excellent before and after photos and reviews from happy patients that you can view. If you have any worries about a fake-looking nose, bring this up to Dr. Bloom, and he will show you the results he has delivered for others.

Will my nose have to be broken to improve it?

Dr. Bloom makes controlled osteotomies or “breaks” in almost all rhinoplasties. This helps to narrow the overall width of the nose. If this part of the surgery isn’t done, your nose may appear wider than it should.

What other procedures go well with rhinoplasty?

One of the most common procedures performed with a nose job is a chin augmentation or chin implant. This is commonly seen because it’s all associated with the profile. For example, having a small chin and a nasal bump will actually make the nose appear larger and accentuate it. By bringing the nasal bump down and projecting the chin more with a chin implant, the profile is significantly improved.

When can I expect to see results?

The majority of rhinoplasty patients see final results within half a year.

Dr. Bloom’s technique for rhinoplasty

Dr. Bloom’s rhinoplasty procedures in Bryn Mawr are done with the patient under general anesthesia using a board-certified anesthesiologist. The anesthesiology team will monitor the patient appropriately, allowing Dr. Bloom to solely do his job, which is to concentrate on the nose itself.

Rhinoplasty can be performed with either an “open” or “closed” approach. In a closed procedure, all incisions are hidden within the nose. An open procedure requires an incision at the base of the nose between the nostrils so Dr. Bloom can visualize the nose’s internal structure. The rhinoplasty procedure can involve re-positioning bones to straighten or narrow the nose and/or moving cartilage in order to “build up” certain areas.

Dr. Bloom’s approach of choice for a nose job is an “endonasal” or “scarless rhinoplasty”. He takes this approach for over 90% of his primary (first time) nose jobs, and he is an expert in this specific technique. 

An endonasal or scarless rhinoplasty allows for a faster recovery time (one week), with very minimal swelling and bruising — and zero evidence of surgery, because all of the incisions are hidden within the nostrils. There is no external scarring. This is a very technically difficult and demanding approach that Dr. Bloom has worked on and improved for over a decade. 

During your consultation with Dr. Bloom, he will determine which approach and techniques are most appropriate for your individual case, and he will fully involve you in the decision-making process.

“Rhinoplasty is my favorite procedure to perform, and is also the most rewarding procedure that I do. It’s almost weekly that a patient will be moved to tears of joy after seeing their new nose for the first time. It is by far the best part of my job.”

What to expect during your rhinoplasty consultation

The consultation you have with Dr. Bloom before surgery is very important, because this is where he will learn exactly what it is that bothers you about your nose. He will closely listen in order to determine the right way to get the results you want. Each patient will have different concerns about their nose, and it’s very important for him to understand why you dislike yours.  

During the consultation, 3D photographs will be taken of you, as well as Canfield Vectra 3D imaging. This is where Dr. Bloom will combine the information you have given him with his own expertise to show you what your results will look like. This is an important step in order to align what you want and what Dr. Bloom can achieve for you.

Many patients bring photographs of noses they like to show Dr. Bloom, but it’s important to understand that a nose that looks attractive on one person may not suit another. The goal of nose surgery in Philadephia with Dr. Bloom is to create facial harmony so that all of the features of the face are balanced and in proportion, and appropriate for their facial structure.

Dr. Bloom will also show you photos of real patients going through different stages of recovery. This will help you know how to plan your life around the recovery period. He will walk you through the entire procedure and recovery process so that you know what to expect. If you have any questions or concerns about undergoing a nose job, the consultation is the ideal place to bring these concerns up.

Nose Surgery Recovery 

Traditional rhinoplasty requires about two weeks of recovery time, with considerable swelling that will take some time to subside. However, recovery time for Dr. Bloom’s technique of choice, endonasal rhinoplasty, takes one week. Because he uses the most advanced techniques to minimize swelling, bruising, and invasiveness, nearly every patient has only a mild amount of bruising and swelling remaining at the one-week mark. 

The nasal splint is typically also removed at this time. Other than a small amount of swelling and bruising, the signs of surgery are non-existent. Cardio should be avoided for two weeks, and heavy lifting and strenuous activity for three weeks. You will have follow-up appointments at one week, three weeks, one month, and then at three/six/twelve months.
