The Quest for the Perfect Nose

If you compare your nose side-by-side with your favorite celebrity, chances are you’ll find something wrong. Too long, too short, too narrow, too wide, or a bump.

But the truth is the ‘perfect nose’ is not for everyone. Michael Jackson’s nose is a perfect example of what can happen when ethnic differences are not taken into consideration and a ‘standard’ rhinoplasty is performed.


The Quest for the Perfect Nose

If you compare your nose side-by-side with your favorite celebrity, chances are you’ll find something wrong. Too long, too short, too narrow, too wide, or a bump.

But the truth is the ‘perfect nose’ is not for everyone. Michael Jackson’s nose is a perfect example of what can happen when ethnic differences are not taken into consideration and a ‘standard’ rhinoplasty is performed.

Dr. Azizzadeh takes a customized approach to rhinoplasty and makes aesthetic improvements with the patient’s cultural heritage in mind. He also uses advanced 3D imaging technology to show what the results will look like after surgery during the consultation process.

Sometimes a non-surgical approach may be possible if you just want to fill in a depression or change the angle of the tip, using dermal fillers such as Restylane or Radiesse. This takes less than 30 minutes to perform, results are immediate and can last for up to 1 year.

A surgical nose job is performed in our state-of-the-art operating room under general anesthesia. It generally takes 1-2 weeks to heal, and 6-12 months to see the full results – which are permanent.

The ultimate goal is a natural-looking nose that blends into other facial features and is harmonious with the overall facial characteristics of the patient.

As Dr. Azizzadeh is also double-board certified facial plastic surgeon and ear, nose throat (ENT) physician, you can feel confident that the function of your nose will not be an issue. Plus, as lead editor for the best-selling textbook Master Techniques in Rhinoplasty you know you’re in the best hands.
