What are the key benefits of rhinoplasty?

Nose job surgery can address medical and aesthetic concerns while dramatically enhancing your overall appearance. Key improvements include balancing facial features, repairing a crooked nose, reducing a prominent bump, fixing a droopy nasal tip, straightening a crooked bridge, and correcting breathing issues.

How much is rhinoplasty in the Shreveport area?

Rhinoplasty cost in Louisiana varies widely based on the amount of correction necessary, the surgical technique used, and your unique aesthetic goals. During your consultation, one of our board-certified plastic surgeons will assess your needs, and our team will provide you with a personalized rhinoplasty price quote. We offer financing options to help you pay for your procedure with as little stress and hassle as possible.

Does insurance cover rhinoplasty?

It depends. If your nose job results from a medical condition such as a deviated septum, insurance may cover it. However, if you’re pursuing rhinoplasty for aesthetic reasons, you should expect to pay out-of-pocket for your procedure.

How long is rhinoplasty recovery?

While recovery time varies from patient to patient, most rhinoplasty patients take about 2 weeks off work or school. During this window, you will likely experience significant bruising and swelling. It helps to keep your head elevated and your mindset positive, remembering that these symptoms will gradually diminish. You must refrain from rigorous exercise for about 4 to 6 weeks. You can begin to appreciate your nose job results after a few weeks, but swelling may take several months to a year to entirely subside.

How old do I have to be for a nose job?

Your facial features need to reach full maturity before rhinoplasty surgery. Therefore, we prefer to perform rhinoplasty on young women who are at least 15 and young men at least 16 and older. There are no age caps or restrictions for older adults pursuing rhinoplasty.

Are nose job results permanent?

Yes! While you may experience subtle changes to your nasal appearance as you age, you can expect to enjoy the results of your rhinoplasty permanently. If you’ve had rhinoplasty elsewhere and are unhappy with your results, you can visit our experienced team for revision rhinoplasty surgery.
