Nose rehaping surgery is often either called a rhinoplasty or a nose job.

Candidates for a rhinoplasty can change the following features

  • Wide or bulbous nasal tip
  • Wide nasal bones
  • Nasal hump
  • Wide nostrils
  • Low nasal bridge
  • Drooping nasal tip
  • Large nose over all

How long does a rhinoplasty take?

  • Open rhioplasty will take about 2 hours
  • Add half an hour if a septoplasty is added
  • Add half an hour if a nostrol narrowing is added
  • Add 1 hour if a cartilage graft from the ear is needed

The surgery is performed as either a Open or a Closed Rhinoplasty

How long to return to work after a nose job?
1 week – splint and sutures are removed in about 7-10 days

  • Final results
    1 year before all the swelling from the nasal tip is final but it is like a curve. Most will look pretty good in a month
  • No revision surgeries are performed before a year as the cartilage is still remolding


  • All procedures are performed at the Loudoun Ambulatory Surgery Center located in Leesburg, Virginia.
