A rhinoplasty, also referred to as a nose job, is a procedure that reshapes the appearance of the nose by altering the bone structure, surrounding skin, and cartilage of the existing nose. Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Amir Moradi is an expert at performing this procedure with precision, offering customizable results depending on the patient's needs. It can be performed as a cosmetic adjustment or as a reconstructive treatment for those suffering from injuries or a deviated septum, opening the airway and restoring the patient's breathing. Regardless of the reason, the goal is to recreate the shape of the nose in a natural way that suits the patient's desires as best as possible.

"I have been going to Dr Moradi for nearly 10 years and the reason I keep coming back is multifaceted. Dr. Moradi understands my desire to look “normal...” and knows how to do just enough to maintain what is naturally my own look. So as a professional he knows what he’s doing. Just as importantly though is who he is as a person. I like how he treats me. And the staff who work for him stay year after year so it feels like “family.” I highly recommend this doctor and this office."- D.M. / Facebook / Jan 08, 2018
There are several techniques used for rhinoplasty. The approach taken will be based on the complexity of the surgical case and the overall goal of the patient.
Rhinoplasty is performed in an accredited surgical facility under general anesthesia. The procedure lasts up to 2 hours and is considered outpatient. After surgery, there will be swelling and soreness around the nose area. Bruising is also a side effect of surgery. The nose will be placed in a splint for additional support. During the first 7-10 days following surgery, the side effects will begin to disappear and the splint will be removed. Patients will be able to see their results immediately; however, it may take several months for the full results to appear.
