Getting a rhinoplasty in Washington, DC
There are a number of different ways to improve the shape and appearance of your nose. The “Beverly Hills Nose Job” does not refer to one specific size or shape, but rather the way with which we approach nose surgery. Listed below are some of the different techniques our doctors may use:
- Open Rhinoplasty: used for major nose reshaping, allows doctor to fully see nasal anatomy
- Closed Rhinoplasty: used for minor nose reshaping and minimal incisions
- Full Rhinoplasty: used when reconstructing the bone
- Tip Rhinoplasty: used when only needing to reconstruct the soft tissue
- Reconstructive Rhinoplasty: used as a result of damage or injury

Consultation for an Open Rhinoplasty in Washington, DC
Each patient is unique and requires a personalized approach. During your consultation, you will discuss your current situation, desired outcome, and factors that may contribute to the success of the procedure. From there, your doctor will be able to recommend the best technique to achieve your goal.
When discussing what your desired outcome is, it’s important to make sure you and your doctor are on the same page. You may have a general understanding of what you are looking for but your doctor will be able to guide you in the right direction. They will help blend your idea of the perfect nose with what will look perfect on your face.
It can be helpful to bring photos in of the nose you are thinking of. This way, you and your doctor can have a clear visual of what you are describing and avoid miscommunication.
Recovery from a Washington, DC nose job
A rhinoplasty will typically involve a 2 to 3 hour procedure with no hospital stay and around a 3 week recovery until you can resume normal activities.
In the first week, you should avoid most activity that will increase your heart rate. When you heart rate increases, it can cause your nose to swell even more. The goal for this month of recovery is to reduce swelling as much as possible.
During your second week, you can increase your activity slightly. This could include a light walk or non-aggressive movement. You will start to feel better in between the second and third week during which you can continue to ease back into your regular activities.
After the third week, there are little to no activity restrictions. You may want to monitor your swelling as you increase activity to ensure you don’t disrupt the healing process.
