Nose Reshaping Surgery Overview
Nose surgery, commonly referred to as a “nose job,” is technically called rhinoplasty. Women and men choose this procedure to enhance the appearance of the nose and improve the overall appearance of the face. In addition to providing facial balance and giving patients an aesthetic appearance they desire, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Kesh Nawada often performs nose surgery to correct nasal deformity. Having nose surgery is a very personal choice, which every patient will discuss in great detail with Dr. Nawada during their consultation at his practice in Central Florida. Many people are self-conscious about the shape of their nose, and feel that a subtle change in shape will give them a more desirable appearance and greater self-confidence. Nose surgery is performed on all patients of all ages whose noses are fully developed (ranging from late teens and up). Patients should consider Rhinoplasty at Nawada Plastic Surgery in Winter Haven, Florida if they wish to change their nose’s overall symmetry, proportions to other facial features, the shape of the profile (a “bump” or “hump”), shape or size of the tip, size or shape of the nostrils.
"Dr. Nawada is hands down the BEST Plastic Surgeon in Central Florida. Prior to my surgery I was well informed and given 100% confidence. In result, my instincts were spot on selecting Dr. Nawada to perform my elaborate procedure. Surgery went smooth and follow up was very caring & professional. He is an artist that helped me gain my confidence back. Thank you Dr.Nawada & Amazing Nurses!!"- J. / Healthgrades / Apr 09, 2016

"Dr. Nawada is AWESOME!! Along with his staff. I had a BOTCHED breast reduction from a surgeon at Lakeland’s Watson Clinic in 2003. I was promised the moon and back and was left mutilated. I wasn’t the only one who went too this “so called plastic surgeon “ and received botched results. My breasts were so botched I would cry looking at them in the mirror. The scars were horrendous and hurt all the time. I couldn’t wear a bra, not that I needed one anymore bc all I was left with going from a 38HHH too barely A cups which were scars. I heard so many great things about Dr. Nawada so I went for a consultation 5 years later. He is very upfront and tells you like it is which I truly liked. Some take that as he doesn’t have a good bedside manner, but it’s they want things the way they want it not reasonable for the best results. Not only did he fix the scars which when he did it left my breast concave, but he put in appropriate size, shape and form of saline implants proportionate too my body. Along with the breast reconstruction he tandemly did an apron tummy tuck and gave me the cutest belly button ever. (I had weighed almost 300lbs in my teen years and lost over 100 leaving the skin too skin touching which was removed) All I can say is everything was perfect then and still too this day 10 years later I’m still loving the way I look. My daughter who is 21 went through this with me mind you she was only 12 at the time and now she has one breast 2 2 1/2 sizes smaller. Dr. Nawada examined her when she was 18 and told her too wait until she was 21 and come back and he will augment her breast too make them fuller and even. I appreciate his honesty and telling her too wait because most would have done it back when she was 18 and as he told her her breast will be about done growing around 21-22 keeping the need of an additional surgery if she were too have done at 18. She’s preparing soon too have her surgery and I feel SUPER COMFORTABLE AND SAFE putting my baby’s life and vanity in Dr. Nawada’s and his staffs hands. It doesn’t hurt either that his head Nurse/office director was a high school classmate of mine. If you want the BEST NAWADA AND ASSOCIATES is the place too go??!!"- A.S. / Google / Nov 25, 2018
"It has been 17 years, but was an exceptional experience. I wish Dr. Nawada was here in the Atlanta area...."- V.A. / Facebook / Jun 20, 2018
Nose Reshaping Surgery Surgical Technique
Many surgeons prefer the open rhinoplasty approach during nose surgery because they can gain a better view and better access to the inside of the nose. The incision using this approach is made on the skin between the nostrils or under the nose near the nostrils. Once the incision is made, the skin is moved back to allow access to the internal structures. The incision lines, which heal nicely leaving scars barely visible, are fairly small and usually measure between 2-3 mm.
The closed rhinoplasty technique is used on noses that have features that are easily corrected. It is commonly used when the tip of the nose has good shape and is not too long, too wide, over or under projected. The incision during this approach is not visible after surgery because it is made on the inside of the nose.
Nose Reshaping Surgery During/After Surgery
Rhinoplasty is performed under general anesthesia in our own, in-house, ambulatory surgical center and typically takes around 1-2 hours to complete. It is an outpatient procedure. After surgery, patients will wear a nose splint and will experience bruising and swelling around the nose and eyes. Once the bandages and splint are removed, after about one week, there will be minimal swelling and it will continue to heal over time up to a year, when the nose will gain its final contour and softness. Full activity can resume post-operatively, after six weeks.
Nose Reshaping Surgery Expected Cost
Rhinoplasty is a tailored surgery, thus the cost will vary depending on the aesthetic goals of the patient, as well as any functional corrections that need to be made. Some procedures will involve just the bone while others will involve skin grafting and cartilage reconstruction. On average, patients can expect to pay between $5,000-$10,000.

Noses that are too large or too wide, or have a specific deformity, may only be able to be enhanced through nose surgery. However, the look of some noses may be able to be enhanced using an injectable filler, such as Restylane®, Restylane® Silk, or Belotero, or Juvederm "Injection Rhinoplasty" may be an option before resorting to surgery. This is an in-office procedure that can help to soften and camouflage a bump, alter the tip of the nose, and smooth out irregularities.
