When it comes to plastic surgery, especially facial procedures, the success of your results can depend on many things, including your surgeon and the level of attention, care, and dedication they have to each client.
This can not be understated when it comes to rhinoplasty. Dr. Kevin Sadati is an expertly-trained and highly skilled facial plastic surgeon who has a keen eye for beauty and a background as a painter and sculptor. This artistry allows him to approach procedures with precision, delicacy, and a creative eye for aesthetics.
A high percentage of men are seeking rhinoplasty to improve their facial appearance. In order to avoid complications and dealing with unhappy patients, the procedure must be tailored to males. Over-reduction in men must be avoided. The male nose must remain strong and prominent.
The thick skin on the tip does not usually allow the creation of a well-defined, multifaceted tip. The osteotomy is the preferred tool for moderate to large hump reduction. The osteotomy requires good control of the depth and a strong grip to avoid rotation. It creates a very precise reduction and preserves precious bony and cartilaginous material which may be used later.
Rhinoplasty is one of the most popular facial procedures in the United States, although in the past the majority of rhinoplasty patients were women. Now men and women comprise equal numbers of patients in our practice. However, men often have more pronounced features and a more defined facial profile. This can impact the way a male rhinoplasty should be approached in order for the results to look natural and compliment the rest of the face.
Dr. Sadati believes every plastic surgery procedure should be unique to the patient’s needs and facial structure. Together, he will design a treatment plan with you that will help achieve the desired results in a naturally flattering way.
You will have the opportunity to discuss what changes will be made and the techniques Dr. Sadati will use prior to your surgical appointment. You’ll also be able to discuss the recovery process and any questions or concerns you may have. On the day of surgery, you will be placed under general anesthesia before you begin making incisions inside of the nose. The exact placement of the incisions and how your rhinoplasty is performed will vary based on what you are having corrected or enhanced.
Dr. Sadati may recommend an open or closed surgery, the former of which requires pulling back the flap to help rearrange tissue and muscles. A closed surgery, on the other hand, can be used when less correction is needed and may reduce the risk of scarring. In any case, Dr. Sadati will work to make incisions along the natural folds of your skin to minimize visibility.
The first step any patient must take before undergoing any type of cosmetic correction or enhancement surgery or treatment is to sit down with an experienced physician for a consultation. The initial consultation will help to determine whether you are an eligible candidate and if a procedure like a rhinoplasty is right for you.
In some cases, patients may not know exactly what the best approach is for their unique features, so you can discuss any concerns and your aesthetic goals. This can include anything from reversing signs of aging to achieving a more defined or chiseled facial profile. Patients may find that some of their features are distracting or take away from their overall beauty and appearance. In particular, the nose is one of the focal parts of the face, and can draw attention during first impressions and whenever someone is looking at you. If your nose protrudes, is crooked, or is otherwise misshapen, it may affect how you feel about your appearance. Ideal candidates include patients who are in good general health, understand the risks and post-care responsibilities they will have, and have a realistic understanding of the procedure.
The closed rhinoplasty approach, which has been described, is a worthwhile approach. Even in the case of a large hump, the mucosa located beneath the dorsum will retract rapidly and there is no need to resect it.
Transection and partial resection of the mucosa along the septum and upper lateral cartilage, apart from causing perioperative bleeding, can be responsible for scar tissue formation and contribute to the formation of a supratip deformity. On the other hand, the open rhinoplasty approach gives immediate access to the septum and keeps a closed pocket in which the dorsal grafts and spreader grafts will be isolated.
When performing a bony dorsal graft, it is especially useful to avoid opening the nasal cavities. The submucosal approach is even easier to perform when one is doing an open rhinoplasty than through the classical inner incision. One continues on the midline to find the septum and then dissects the mucosal domes on each side.
Bone grafts are the best solution for a severely depressed dorsum due to post-traumatic, congenital, or postsurgical causes. Bony rib grafts can be passed through a hole in the glabella region.
The rib is split opened on one side, straightened, and fashioned in the shape of a boat. To avoid the discomfort of the rib removal for the patient, cranial grafts or synthetic material can be used. In cases of major reconstruction with the absence of tip projection, a rib graft, including bone and cartilage, is still useful.
The cartilage is carved to give support to the tip and columella. Cartilage is less prone to resorption than bone, and one can preserve some natural mobility of the tip. The junction between the bony and cartilaginous part of the graft should be located about 2.5 cm above the tip, as in a normal nose.
From 1997 to 2014, the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) compiled data from board-certified plastic surgeons and otolaryngologists to compare what the national average is for each cosmetic procedure. Over the past ten years, Dr. Kevin Sadati himself has compiled averages, which reflect him to be well above these national averages.

After a male rhinoplasty, a splint will need to be worn for the first week. It’s common to experience tenderness and inflammation around the area, but you will see improvements within 10 to 14 days after surgery. Patients should avoid any high-intensity activities like contact athletics or heavy exercises for at least six weeks.
A rhinoplasty procedure is intended to be a long-lasting treatment that can correct or enhance the structure and overall shape, size, and appearance of the nose and its features. Barring any physical changes like unavoidable aging shifts or fluctuations in weight, your results will last many years and most patients don’t need additional surgery.
After rhinoplasty, male patients can expect to start seeing results as swelling and inflammation starts to dissipate throughout the first two weeks. From there, minor swelling may still be present, but the visibility will be greatly reduced. Typically, it can take up to a year to see the final results, so patients should be patient as they settle into their new facial structure.
