What is Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty, commonly referred to as a "nose job", is quite literally, shaping of the nose. It is the third most common cosmetic surgery performed today and the goals are to reshape and to resize the nose in order to create harmony within the face. Additional goals may be to improve nasal breathing or to reconstruct the nose after skin cancer. Categories of rhinoplasty include:

  • Primary rhinoplasty: preservation, structural or reductive
  • Ethnic rhinoplasty
  • Tip plasty (addressing the tip only)
  • Alar plasty (addressing the nostrils only)

Dr. Roskies has spent his career training with rhinoplasty experts, learning every single nuance, and has developed his own “winning formula.” My goal is to give you a nose that withstands the forces of life and trends of the time so that in 30 years from now, you are still happy with your choice. In the majority of cases, he will employ the "Preservation Rhinoplasty" technique, otherwise known as the "new wave of nasal surgery." In this technique, surgeons "preserve" all that is good with a nose: how the bridge is smooth, how the ligaments hold the skin in place... and make minimally-invasive and precise changes along the way.

The surgery usually starts with an open approach, leaving a barely noticeable scar under the nose. Once all the bones and cartilages are identified, the newest equipment like the Piezo-electric (ultrasonic) Rhinoplasty Device is used to precisely sculpt the nose, instead of using a hammer and chisel that leads to short and long-term complications. This leads to an overall easier recovery for you with less swelling, bruising, and pain. Most importantly, once healed, the nose will keep its form and function forever.

Rhinoplasty Recovery

You will go home with a cast, tape, and a dressing for the nose. This will come off between 5-8 days.

Rhinoplasty Frequently Asked Questions

Various factors will influence the cost of your rhinoplasty in Toronto, including:

  • The extent of the surgery
  • Technique used
  • Supplemental procedures
  • The skill of the surgeon

Following your consultation, Dr. Roskies will provide you with a detailed breakdown of the costs you can expect to incur before any work is performed.

You will not feel any pain during the procedure due to anesthesia. Following your procedure, you will have medication to control discomfort and a detailed recovery plan to minimize pain during recovery. You will experience some tenderness in the first few days after surgery, but most Toronto rhinoplasty patients find the discomfort to be tolerable if they follow Dr. Roskies’ instructions. Dr. Roskies also practices ultrasonic and preservation rhinoplasty techniques, which can often allow him to reshape the nose without removing tissues. This speeds up recovery times and lessens issues like bleeding during recovery.

It depends on your situation. In some cases, Dr. Roskies can use dermal fillers to perform a “liquid rhinoplasty,” where he can change the size and shape of your nose without surgery. Liquid rhinoplasty results often last a year or more, which makes it a perfect way to “try on” your new nose before permanent surgical rhinoplasty.
