Every nose is different and so is every patient, which means that rhinoplasty, or nose surgery, must be tailored to the needs of each individual. Triple board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Asaf Yalif understands this concept and works closely with every rhinoplasty patient he sees in Alpharetta, Woodstock, and Roswell, GA, to provide the best, most natural-looking results possible.
Rhinoplasty, also referred to as a “nose job,” is one of the most common plastic surgeries in the Atlanta area because it can dramatically enhance a person’s appearance. Women and men choose rhinoplasty for several reasons, including improving a crooked nose, removing a hump or bump, reducing nasal width, narrowing the nasal tip and/or adjusting its projection, and altering the size of the nostrils.
Ideal Candidates for Rhinoplasty
The best candidates for nose surgery:
- Have cosmetic nose issues they want transformed
- Have realistic expectations for their outcomes
- Desire a long-term change
- Desire a natural look
What to Expect
An outpatient procedure, rhinoplasty is performed while a patient is under general anesthesia at an accredited facility. Depending on the technique used and the patient’s needs, surgery can last two to four hours. There are two types of nose surgery procedures: open rhinoplasty and closed rhinoplasty.
Open rhinoplasty, or external rhinoplasty, involves the plastic surgeon making a small incision on the underside of the nose between the nostrils to offer better access to the lower and middle parts of the nose. The surgeon can then manipulate tissue, skin, and bone as needed. The placement of the incisions allows for minimal scarring. Open rhinoplasty is used for more complex nose surgeries.
With closed rhinoplasty, or endonasal rhinoplasty, incisions are made inside of the nostrils. This technique is common for less complex surgeries, such as when the nose already has a good shape and isn’t considered too wide or too long. Due to the placement of the incisions, there is no visible scarring.

After surgery, a patient’s nose can be stabilized with splints made of soft material. A follow-up appointment will be scheduled for the next day where the splints will be removed and external dressings will be placed on the nose, which will remain for about two days. Patients should expect some pain, discomfort, bruising, and swelling after surgery, which should fully subside within a few weeks. The nose will reposition and evolve into its surgically enhanced shape for months after surgery. The final product should be fully realized within a year with a beautifully shaped, positioned, and proportionate nose.
