After years of agonizing over the size and/or shape of your nose, you may finally consider doing something about it. If you’ve always imagined what you would look like if only your nose was a little smaller, if that nagging nasal bump was gone, if it was straighter or if your nasal tip was not as pointy, Newport Beach rhinoplasty surgeon Dr. Michael Sundine can perform cosmetic nose reshaping surgery to help you achieve the nose you have always desired.

Who Is a Candidate for Rhinoplasty Surgery?

Dr. Sundine will review your medical history and closely examine your nasal anatomy to determine if you are a good candidate for nose reshaping surgery. If you are a smoker or are taking any herbal supplements, it is very important that you disclose this information. Smoking compromises blood flow to your skin and will greatly affect the healing process. Dr. Sundine will most likely ask you to quit before proceeding with surgery.

While determining your candidacy, Dr. Sundine will also talk to you about your aesthetic concerns and what can be done to give you the nose you want.

The Rhinoplasty Procedure in Newport Beach

Dr. Sundine will use one of two techniques when performing your nose surgery: open rhinoplasty or closed rhinoplasty. If you are looking for minor cosmetic changes, closed rhinoplasty is frequently used. With this procedure, the incisions are created on the inside of the nose. Dr. Sundine uses small surgical tools to manipulate your nasal tissue in order to produce the desired result. Open rhinoplasty involves incisions in the columella, the strip of skin between the nostrils; the top layers of skin are then lifted back. This procedure allows greater visibility and manipulation of the underlying nasal structures. The results are also more predictable.

Rhinoplasty surgery is performed under general anesthesia at an accredited outpatient facility. You will be sent home a few hours after surgery.

Recovering from Rhinoplasty Surgery

After you wake up from your rhinoplasty surgery, your nose will have an external splint and a moustache dressing. Your face will most likely feel sore. You will have some splints inside of your nose, which will keep the tissues intact during the healing process. You will be given a prescription for pain medication and some antibiotics and post-operative instructions on how to care for yourself. The bandages are usually removed seven days after surgery.

During the days and weeks following nose surgery, you should avoid smoking, blowing you nose and participating in strenuous physical activities. Dr. Sundine will closely monitor your healing process. You will most likely be able to return to your daily routine within 10 days. Please note that while you nose will heal fully within a few weeks, the results will become visible gradually, and the final outcome may not be evident for up to 12 months.

    “He truly deserved the highest reviews on every level”

    I gave Dr. Sundine the highest possible review in each category because he truly deserved the highest reviews on every level. I am a very well recognized lawyer on the West Coast. My firm has spent millions of dollars on television advertising in which I appear. I could not afford to have a bad face lift or even for people to notice I had a face lift at all. I interviewed many physicians including some of the “celebrity” physicians. Ultimately, I chose Dr. Sundine because he performs highly complex complete facial reconstruction procedures on children.

    “Special thank you to Dr. Sundine! So happy!!”

    My keloid surgery was an absolute success. I am so pleased with the results and grateful to the staff pre & post surgery. I was so nervous and scared to precede w/ the procedure. For I never had a surgery or general anesthesia before.:(

    Dr. Sundine with his exceeding professionalism gave me gentle kind assurance that all will be fine. In addition, educated me to his full knowledge and experience in detail what to expect. I felt safe and secure in his hands. Very kind soul. Post surgery I had radiation at another location, and it was a success. I am still in the healing process and my ear aesthetically looks next to perfect. I’m free of the disfigurement and I have a renewed confidence keloid Free!! :-)

    It was like 1 2 3!!

    “THE RESULTS NOTHING SHORT OF EXCEPTIONAL”

    I chose Dr. Sundine because he is an expert in a highly regarded surgical technique that delivers a completely natural result. It takes longer on the operating table and it requires specialized training which many doctors just don’t want to invest in. The results, however, are nothing short of spectacular.
