to Rhinoplasty

The art of rejuvenation

A nose’s shape can play a huge role in one’s self-confidence. For some, it can be too large, for others it may be too small, and for some patients, they may disapprove of their nose with imperfections here and there. There are also certain cases in which a deviated septum or past traumatic experience makes it difficult to breathe, causing discomfort in their everyday life.
Regardless of your need for it, at the Beverly Hills Aesthetic Surgical Institute, Dr. Saadat strives to provide his Beverly Hills Rhinoplasty patients with results that they can be proud of and make their lives better. For more information on this surgery, please keep reading below.

What is Rhinoplasty?

Nasal reshaping surgery (rhinoplasty, “nose job”) is an intricate, multifaceted surgical procedure, that requires meticulous attention to detail and the ability to assess how small changes to the patient’s nose and nasal structure will impact the patient’s facial symmetry and proportions. Even under ideal circumstances, the potential for post-rhinoplasty cosmetic and/or functional complications to develop is very real—and the risk of these complications is magnified when the procedure is performed by a plastic surgeon without specialized training in facial surgery.

At the Beverly Hills Aesthetic Surgical Institute, with convenient office locations in Beverly Hills, Valencia, and Santa Clarita, California, Triple-Board Certified Facial Plastic and Reconstructive surgeon Dr. David Saadat has mastered the subtly nuanced techniques essential to achieving optimal rhinoplasty outcomes and is often called upon to perform a secondary (or tertiary) nasal reshaping surgery known as Revision Rhinoplasty to correct any structural or cosmetic problems stemming from unsuccessful prior rhinoplasty or surgery performed elsewhere.

Who are the Best Candidates for Nose Surgery?

At the Beverly Hills Aesthetic Surgical Institute, we believe that the best candidates for people seeking Rhinoplasty in Beverly Hills are anyone who:

  • Can pause alcohol consumption before surgery
  • Doesn’t smoke
  • Facial growth is complete
  • Has a positive outlook and realistic expectations for the outcome of the surgery
  • Overall physically healthy

What’s the first step?

The first step in getting Rhinoplasty in Beverly Hills is to contact the Beverly Hills Aesthetic Surgical Institute and schedule your consultation. When you come in for your appointment, you will meet with Dr. Saadat and express what you would like to achieve from surgery. He will examine your nose and the two of you will discuss your options to obtain your desired look, as well as ask you questions regarding your medical history. Please be as open and honest as possible when discussing this portion as it will help prevent any unnecessary side effects or risks.

After agreeing on what will take place during your procedure, Dr. Saadat will create your procedure plan and you will be able to schedule the date and time of your surgery with our Patient Coordinator. You will receive a list of instructions to follow that will help ensure a smoother operation and recovery.

What to Expect On The Day of Rhinoplasty

On the day of your Rhinoplasty, you will first be administered some medication to make your procedure go smoother. Depending on what is discussed during your consultation, your options for sedation will most likely be either intravenous sedation or general anesthesia. Again, based on what is discussed during your consultation and what you are trying to achieve, Dr. Saadat will begin your surgery by utilizing advanced surgical techniques to achieve your desired look.

If he uses a closed procedure, the incisions will be hidden inside your nose, whereas an open procedure will require an incision to be made across the narrow strip of tissue that separates your nostrils, which is called the columella. When performing the open procedure, the skin that covers your nasal bones and cartilage will be gently raised to allow access to reshape your nose’s structure. 

For our patients with overly larger noses, they can be reduced by removing bone and cartilage, or even possibly adding cartilage grafts. If this is required, it is very common to use cartilage from the septum (the partition in the middle of your nose). In some necessary situations, the cartilage from your ear or ribs can be used. If you suffer from a deviated septum, it can be straightened and the projections inside your nose will be reduced to improve breathing.

After the underlying structure of your nose has been sculpted to its desired shape, your nasal skin and tissue are redraped and the incision is closed. If required, additional incisions can be placed in your nostril’s natural creases to alter their size.

Rhinoplasty Recovery


Since it’s an outpatient procedure, after your nose surgery, you will be able to return home, but you will be required to wear a splint and gauze packing to support your nose as it heals. You can expect some swelling and bruising for the first few weeks, however, this will eventually subside on its own. Dr. Saadat will prescribe you some temporary pain medication to make your recovery more comfortable, but you can also lightly apply an ice pack or cold compress to reduce the swelling and bruising as well as alleviate any pain.

You will notice gradual changes in your nasal appearance over the course of a year as your contour fully refines itself and your skin, muscle, and soft tissue mature as you age. It is very important to avoid any potential trauma to your nose during your initial recovery time. After coming in for your follow-up appointments, Dr. Saadat will give you detailed instructions on when you can return to your normal workout routine.

I was referred to Dr. Saadat by a friend having seen the amazing result on my friend’s face. I made an appointment and Dr. Saadat already knew what will make the transformation in my face.
