Surgical Technique

Nose surgery is performed while the patient is under general anesthesia and is considered an outpatient surgery. Rhinoplasty can be performed using various surgical methods, depending on your concerns and aesthetic goals.

Dr. Sadati performs rhinoplasty using either an open or closed (endonasal) approach. The goal during treatment is to remove excess bone, cartilage, and tissue, or to improve and add cartilage for a new shape. The nasal features are repositioned while the skin is reformed and draped over the newly structured framework. Sutures are placed either inside the nose or in the natural external fold.


After your surgery, you will rest comfortably in the recovery suite of our state-of-the-art AAAHC-accredited surgical facility until you are released to recover at home.

Your nose will be swollen, bruised, and sore for a few days. In almost all patients, there is bruising and discoloration beneath the eyes in addition to the nose. Cold compresses and inflammatory medications can help with these effects.

Your post-operative appointment with Dr. Sadati will take place within 72 hours following surgery to check your healing process. On average, it takes around 2 – 4 weeks to heal from nose surgery. Within this timeframe, strenuous activity or exercise should be avoided.

Rhinoplasty FAQs

Orange County Rhinoplasty FAQs - Dr Sadati Newport Beach

The cost of rhinoplasty varies based on the technique used and how complex your procedure is. Before estimating costs, Dr. Sadati will listen to your concerns and goals to help develop your custom treatment plan. Once this is done, our financial team can go over costs for the facility, anesthesia, and more. For the best possible results, it's important to focus on choosing an experienced surgeon, like Dr. Sadati, instead of the lowest cost. To help make your surgery easy to afford, our practice accepts several payment methods and we can help you find low-interest financing.

While rhinoplasty to improve your appearance is not covered by insurance, functional rhinoplasty that is medically necessary to improve your breathing may be covered by insurance. If you may be using your insurance, please inform a member of our team during your consultation. Our office will help you submit the needed paperwork and information to your insurance to process your claim.

Ethnic rhinoplasty focuses on improving the appearance of the nose while still maintaining your cultural identity. This is often a concern if you are Asian, African American, or Middle Eastern. During your consultation, you can talk about what you like about your nose and what you would like to change. This will allow D. Sadati to customize your treatment plan.

If you want to smooth the appearance of lumps and bumps on your nose, a hyaluronic acid-based wrinkle filler (like Juvéderm or Restylane) might be an option. A filler can temporarily improve minor imperfections, which might help you decide to proceed with rhinoplasty. Nose surgery is better for larger changes, long-lasting results, and to improve the internal structure for better function. During your consultation, Dr. Sadati will offer the recommendations he feels are most likely to help you reach your aesthetic goals.

Many of the requests for rhinoplasty procedures in Orange County that fall within the teenage demographic are girls. We encourage teens to wait until the nose reaches adult size, typically age 15 or 16 for girls and 17 for boys. Of course, each person develops differently and whether or not your teen is ready will depend heavily on what is discovered during the consultation. Any elective or corrective procedure is a big decision, and in order to move forward, parent consent is mandatory.
