Is This Your First Rhinoplasty?

About Rhinoplasty Surgery

Is this your very first rhinoplasty? If it is, please allow us to put you at ease. If there is no previous trauma to the nose and if you have not had any previous nose surgeries, a rhinoplasty essentially is a process by which existing nasal structures are resized, reshaped, and/or augmented in order to manipulate the appearance of the nose.

Rhinoplasty surgery is one of the more difficult facial plastic surgeries to perform, which is why it is all the more important that you are with a surgeon that you trust. Part of the reason why rhinoplasty is considered to be such a difficult surgery is due to the unique anatomy of each patient, varying in size and shape from nose to nose in addition to differences in skin type, ethnicity, nostril size, bridge size, and other details. If a rhinoplasty is completed without consideration of these details, a patient can end up with a very “uneven” nose. This is precisely why in your initial consultation, Dr. Solomon as your rhinoplasty surgeon will perform an accurate, complete analysis of the nose to determine its detailed aesthetic image and to identify any functional deformity that may or may not exist.

Get a glimpse at your new nose before every having surgery!

To help patients who want to know what a certain type of nose would look like on their face and to aid in determining the possible surgical outcomes, we utilize advanced computer imaging during consultations that allow a patient to see the look of different noses on their face. This is able to be done via Canfield Imaging software. Typically a patient will have their nose photographed from different angles professionally in their consultation, then having these photos morphed and modified accordingly by Dr. Solomon in this program to review the different surgical options.

Though this type of computer imaging cannot guarantee a given result and though we don’t offer a photo as a guarantee, it does provide a close, accurate map for what a certain type of nose might look like.

Are You Seeking A Revision Rhinoplasty in Toronto?

Correct Past Surgeries

If you have had a rhinoplasty performed by another surgeon that did not yield the results you thought, it is possible to seek what is called a “secondary rhinoplasty” or a “revision rhinoplasty”. Performing this surgery will allow an experienced cosmetic surgeon such as Dr. Solomon to do whatever he can to correct any problem that may have developed or that may be developing since your first rhinoplasty. Most of the cases that we have come across have been minor and easy to correct. If a major problem exists, it could prove to be challenging to repair damage done. This is due to the fact that the original anatomy that existed prior may no longer be in tact in addition to the scar tissue that now fills in the tissue planes that were there before.

No matter the extent of the damage, you do not need to worry. Dr. Solomon is an experienced surgeon, highly knowledgeable in a number of appropriate techniques to manipulate what is left of bone and cartilage to repair issues caused by past surgeries. It is our goal to ensure that a natural looking and properly functioning nose is achieved with all of our surgeries. Through an initial rhinoplasty consultation, we will work to diagnose the issue in detail and provide you with the options available to fix the problem.

Are You Seeking A Specialty Rhinoplasty?

Many of our patients come to us seeking a specialty rhinoplasty unique to their gender, ethnicity, and/or seeking a desired effect.

African-American Rhinoplasty : Generally African-Americans tend to require a specific type of rhinoplasty that is in tune with the characteristics and facial features unique to the ethnicity. For example, thicker skin, wider nasal passages, flatter nasal bridges, and wider nasal bones are highly common in African-Americans and performing any type of rhinoplasty must be done with the goal of enhancing and improving one’s facial aesthetics but without sacrificing the unique facial features that identifies an individual to their ethnicity.

Asian Rhinoplasty : Among the most multi-cultural cities in all of Canada, Toronto has a sizeable Asian population, most of whom have unique Asian-based facial characteristics that should not go unnoticed when undergoing a rhinoplasty. An expert in non-Caucasian rhinoplasty, Dr. Solomon specializes in reshaping techniques that specifically target Asian rhinoplasty patients including, but not limited to, the nasal tip lacking definition and projection; the limits of how high a nose bridge can be structured; reconstructing the nostrils; and setting realistic expectations for the results.

Persian Rhinoplasty : Among Dr. Solomon’s diverse patient roster, there are a number of Persian women who have come to the acclaimed surgeon, currently making up more than 30 percent of the patients carried at our practice. An expert in Persian rhinoplasty, it is Dr. Solomon’s pleasure to be able to contribute to the already-present natural beauty in a female Persian face. Some of the more common rhinoplasty work completed under the ‘Persian rhinoplasty’ banner is reducing the appearance of a dominant nose, achieving greater facial harmony, and to avoid creating a ‘Caucasian’ or ‘western’ nose. It is our intended commitment to maintain the facial features and look of the nose according to the ethnicity of the patient.

Transgender Rhinoplasty : If you have made the decision to undergo transgender surgery, your facial appearance is an oftentimes forgotten but equally important part of that transition. If you are seeking a gender-specific nose, why not book a transgender rhinoplasty consultation with Dr. Solomon? Having performed well over a thousand of these types of surgeries, we thoroughly understand the features that make a nose appear more feminine, such as narrower nasal passages, a steeper nasal bridge and narrower nasal bones. Give us the opportunity to complete a thorough analysis of your nose and provide you with the options available that will allow you to continue the transition process into the person you’ve always wanted to become.

Toronto Rhinoplasty Surgery FAQs

Am I a Candidate For a Rhinoplasty in Toronto?

When you are considering getting a nose job, it’s important to ensure that you yourself are a good candidate for the procedure. No matter where you go in Toronto, a nose job is a surgical procedure and there are a number of different conditions that can affect how you respond to anesthesia, recovery time, discomfort, potential side effects, and even the overall success of the surgery itself. Additionally, cosmetic surgery can be more emotionally demanding than people commonly think, so it is important to make sure you are a good candidate psychologically in addition to physically.

The Ideal Candidate For A Nose Job

In a perfect world, every person seeking a nose job would match the following criteria:

  • Physically fit and at a healthy weight
  • Physically and emotionally mature
  • Non-smoker
  • No medical issues
  • Normal blood pressure
  • Not taking any medication
  • Has reasonable expectations about the outcome

Don’t worry if you don’t meet everything on this list. Although some of these items are absolute requirements, many can be overcome through a combination of consulting with your surgeon, your regular doctor, and personal effort. Check below for some of the important considerations to make when seeing if you are a good candidate for a Toronto nose job.

Important Factors

Pregnancy

Unless it’s medically necessary, it’s best to stay on the side of caution and avoid giving surgical procedures to pregnant women. Any nose job should wait until after delivery when the woman’s body has properly recovered.

Physical Maturity

You cannot get a nose job in Toronto until your nose has actually finished growing. This usually means the surgery can’t be performed on someone below 15 (women) or 18 (men).

Weight

Being overweight doesn’t automatically prevent you from getting a nose job but your weight does affect how your body will respond to anesthesia and the recovery process. Speak to your doctor and surgeon about what specific effects, if any, your weight might have.

Smoking

If you are a smoker, you have to be able to go cold-turkey for at least two weeks prior to the surgery date and for at least two weeks after. Smoking impairs your body’s ability to repair itself and will both extend your recovery time and increase the risk of side-effects.

Blood Pressure

Uncontrolled blood pressure increases the risks of surgery and can affect how well you recover. If you have hypertension but are managing it well, you may still be a viable candidate for a Toronto nose job. Speak to your doctor about what can be done both before and after your nose job to make things easier.

Medications

There are a number of medications that might make it trickier to get a nose job in Toronto. Some drugs will make you more prone to bleeding, others might cause unwanted interactions with anesthesia or the antibiotics you will be prescribed during recovery. Some medicines might interfere with the recovery process itself.

If you are on any medications then it is important to both tell your surgeon and to inform your doctor to see if what you are taking could interfere with your nose job. If your medication does present an issue, then your doctor may be able to help by, for instance, switching you to another medicine that does not have the same interaction risks.

Emotional Readiness

As mentioned earlier, a nose job can be emotionally demanding and it is important to do some introspection beforehand. Ask yourself about why you are seeking a nose job. Is it because someone else is pressuring you? Is it because you think it will fix other problems in your life and make you perfect? If so, then you may not be ready. Although a nose job can improve self-esteem, it’s important to keep expectations realistic and your goals focused on restoring harmony and balance to your face.

Which Type of Rhinoplasty Should You Consider?

If you want to make improvements to your nose, but you’re not sure which type of procedure you need, the available information can be a bit overwhelming. Toronto rhinoplasty patients have several different techniques available to them.

Do you want to improve breathing? Straighten your nose? Change the nostrils or smooth a bump? Perhaps you’ve had nasal surgery and were not pleased with the results? Your initial consultation with Dr. Phillip Solomon will allow you to talk about your concerns and expectations. He’ll advise the best approach to match your goals. So, what are the potential options?

Rhinoplasty in Toronto- what are the common choices?

After your initial consultation and examination, you’ll have your facial plastic surgeon’s advice about the best technique for you. You’ll likely hear the words “open” or “closed”.

Closed rhinoplasty

This procedure involves all incisions hidden entirely inside the nose. Through small openings made inside the nostrils and using specialized tools, your surgeon can access the bone and cartilage to make necessary adjustments.

Advantages of this approach include:

  • Faster healing time due to fewer incisions and no external, columellar incision
  • Less post-operative swelling
  • Minimized visible scarring
  • Reduced operating time

Open rhinoplasty

Despite some pros for the closed approach, this procedure remains the most efficient and effective technique for many patients. That’s because more extensive adjustments can be made this way and it affords your surgeon greater visibility of the area

A small incision is made between the nostrils where the nose meets the upper lip. The skin can be lifted to reveal complex cartilage and bone structures. Grafting, reduction and revision work will often require the open approach. Toronto rhinoplasty patients benefit from the open method when they need the following:

  • Reconstruction of collapsed structures
  • Repair of genetic deformities
  • Acquired deformity/trauma/scar tissue removal

The facial plastic surgeon will typically place a splint on the nose after open rhinoplasty, and the initial recovery phase is roughly 2 weeks. The small incision heals to a very minor scar on the columella which fades over time and isn’t readily visible.

Injection rhinoplasty

There is a non-surgical method of reshaping the nose that many patients are catching on to. It’s limited in what it can achieve, but due to the far lower cost and decreased risks or recovery time, it makes an excellent alternative for some people. Here’s what you need to know:

Hyaluronic acid filler gel is injected to the nose for building up areas or camouflaging unwanted features. For instance, the appearance of a crooked nose can be somewhat corrected through the addition of filler as a sculpting agent. A hump can be minimized by adding filler around it to offset its prominence. A low or flat bridge can be built up with thick gel, and a tip can be upturned and reshaped slightly.

There are many things filler can’t do for the nose, including breathing improvements and any decrease in size or structure. The results are also temporary- lasting roughly 9 months on average.

Since this is a relatively safe and low-cost cosmetic change, many people find it to be a helpful way to test drive the look of a permanent procedure.

The best way to find out whether non-surgical, revision, open or closed technique is best for you, is to schedule your private consultation with an expert. We welcome you to contact Solomon Facial Plastic and take the next step to a new improved you, today.

How Long Will a Rhinoplasty Procedure Take?

In Toronto, rhinoplasty popularity endures with patients of all ages seeking this transformative facial surgery each year. Are you like many people who wonder how much time you really need to heal after nasal surgery?

When it comes to scheduling time off work and other important daily activities like school and childcare, the logistics may seem intimidating. We at the Solomon Nasal and Facial Cosmetic Surgery Centre have welcome news for you; rhinoplasty recovery is probably less more manageable to accommodate than you think.

What’s The Most Challenging Part Of A Nose Job Recovery?

The feedback Dr. Phillip Solomon hears most often is that a stuffy, swollen-feeling throughout the first week is annoying, and it certainly can be. However, pain medication prescribed is typically more than sufficient to keep patients comfortable and highly specialized, atraumatic methods are used to minimize inflammation or discomfort post-operatively.

Does Everyone Take The Same Amount Of Time Off Work After Toronto Rhinoplasty?

Those who don’t mind being seen with a little visible swelling or bruising are at somewhat of an advantage because they can usually return to light work after 1 week. If you have a job that doesn’t require strenuous, physical activity from you, this often works out well. As cosmetic procedures become more alluring for men and women, and more socially acceptable, fewer people feel the need to hide out until all signs of surgery have resolved.

On the other hand, some will choose to take a full 2 weeks away from the demands of daily life and out of the public eye. This allows the body to almost entirely resolve any bruising or noticeable inflammation, and they can return to work feeling and looking great. It’s essential to know that the final, desired result will take several months to completely reveal. Though most others won’t see anything unusual about your face, you’ll notice a little residual swelling for several months.

What Should You Tell Your Coworkers?

It’s completely up to you, but you’ll likely need to consider whether you’ll tell colleagues about your surgery and if you’ll feel comfortable answering questions. Some astute observers will undoubtedly notice, if not a cast and swelling, then the new refined shape and profile of your nose.

A final tip: if you work in the public eye as a TV personality, model or actor, you may want to schedule more than two weeks away. Because the industry is more observant of subtle changes, the ongoing settling and refining of the tip might not go unnoticed. During an off-season or hiatus, you could refresh your look entirely and return fully healed and ready.

Double board-certified facial surgeon, Dr. Phillip Solomon, is a highly sought-after Toronto rhinoplasty expert. He sees numerous patients of all ages gender and background to revitalize, repair or reconstruct their noses. We’re especially adept in collaborating with our clients to accommodate their busy work schedules and lives. We welcome you to call and set up your personal consultation today. We look forward to hearing from you.

Can a Rhinoplasty Help My Stuffy Nose?

If you suffer the constant annoyance of congested nasal passages, no doubt you’ve considered decongestants, allergy medications and more. You may be wondering why you can’t breathe clearly, even when you’re not ill. Many people just like you are surprised to learn that in Toronto, rhinoplasty procedures are not only performed to improve the aesthetic appearance of the nose, but to treat a condition so common, it affects an estimated 80% of people. How can you tell if you have a deviated septum causing your stuffy nose?

First, You Need To Know, Just What Is A Septum?

Your septum is the inner wall of soft cartilage that separates your right and left nasal passages. The American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery estimates that a whopping 80% of nasal septums are crooked, yet many people don’t develop breathing issues or realize they have this characteristic. Some will find out when they seek rhinoplasty surgery for cosmetic reasons. Correcting both the septum and reshaping the nose for aesthetic reasons is classified as a septorhinoplasty. The functional aspect of this operation is designed to realign structures, clearing both passages for easy breathing.

Misaligned septum cartilage may develop from birth or may be moved off-center after trauma such as a punch or face contact when playing sports. When one or both passages are chronically blocked, other uncomfortable issues may arise such as chronic sinus infections, problems with smell and snoring.

What Are The Additional Causes For A Chronically Stuffy Nose?

When problems persist, Toronto rhinoplasty patients seek a surgical expert to improve their breathing, but the cause for obstruction could be due to more than a crooked septum. The small bones in the outer wall of the nasal cavity are called turbinates. These tiny structures help to filter and moisten the air you breathe. They can swell and obstruct airflow, so partial turbinate reduction is often helpful to improve breathing.

Nasal polyps are benign growths of soft tissue that may develop inside the nasal passage or sinuses. They often trigger chronically runny noses, congestion and a decreased sense of smell. When symptoms don’t resolve naturally in the expected time that a cold does, polyps are suspected. Medication is sometimes useful and if severe, these procedure will help.

Though correction of structural issues can be carried out without changing the size or shape of the nose, many people choose to alter the appearance as well because the same physical problems leading to breathing difficulty will affect the shape and symmetry of the nose.

Rhinoplasty in Toronto remains one of the most popular facial cosmetic procedures for both men and women. While the desired adjustments may seem simple, it’s essential to select an expert in this specialty field when planning your procedure. In-depth knowledge of nasal anatomy and structures that affect its function will help ensure you have an expertly performed, beautiful result. We welcome you to contact Dr. Phillip Solomon today and get ready to breathe easy.

How Much School Will I Have To Miss For My Rhinoplasty in Toronto?

At Solomon Nasal and Facial Cosmetic Surgery Centre, we enjoy seeing clients of all ages improve how they look and feel through rhinoplasty. Toronto patients who are enrolled in school often express concern about planning downtime after their, and wonder if they’ll need to miss classes. Here, we’ll talk about ways you can schedule a convenient nose job to fit your life and perhaps not miss any school at all.

How Commonly Do Students Schedule Nose-Jobs?

Plenty of students fit cosmetic procedures into their busy lives. Double board-certified facial surgeon Dr. Solomon is a renowned facial cosmetic surgeon-Otolaryngologist Head and Neck Surgeon, practicing facial plastic surgery in Toronto, with rhinoplasty and revision rhinoplasty being two of his top specialties.

For this reason, he often sees younger patients who are ready to make a change in their appearance or improve their breathing with nasal procedures. He’s quite familiar with planning around semester breaks and vacations to make scheduling and recovery as easy as possible for his patients.

Here’s a couple helpful tips to consider when you’re looking into potential dates:

Is a short holiday or reading week sufficient for a full recovery? The answer to that question depends on your lifestyle, the specifics of your procedure and how self-conscious you may be about having it. For instance, if you don’t mind being seen with some visible swelling or a cast on your nose, then your time restrictions will be more relaxed. Your surgeon will let you know how long you should expect to take off based on the complexity of your treatment.

Toronto rhinoplasty patients often wear a cast/bandage on their nose for 7 days. A minimum of one week off work or school is often advised due to pressure and discomfort of swelling, along with follow up appointments to the surgeon’s office.

By the second week, people who have light work such as reading and computer-related tasks can return to them. However, it’s possible your face will still show minor bruising, and puffiness is still present at this point.

Most patients feel fine after one week, but their procedure isn’t possible to hide yet. If you’re determined to keep things on the down-low, you’ll want a full two weeks to hide out. This is roughly the time it takes for the body to fully resolve bruising and a significant portion of inflammation too.

Once you’re back to busy student life, keep in mind the few activity restrictions still in place for your healing nose. School sports and some more aggressive activities have to be postponed until your surgeon clears you.

If you have an important event, ceremonies or photos coming up, you’ll want to book nose surgery well ahead of time because it can take several months for the final, true results to be revealed. Based on your calendar, concerns and needs, we’ll be happy to offer timing that suits you and meets your goals. When you’re ready to talk with Dr. Solomon about your nose transformation, just give our friendly staff a call.
