What is rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty, often referred to as a “nose job,” is a surgical procedure that changes the shape of your nose. It is among the most popular cosmetic surgeries for both women and men, as it has the power to improve overall facial appearance.

Not only can rhinoplasty address cosmetic issues, but it also has the power to improve your quality of life if you suffer from breathing problems. Everyone has a unique set of motivations for pursuing rhinoplasty, and Dr. Brennan provides a detailed explanation of what to expect during your consultation.

What issues are addressed through rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty is a versatile procedure that corrects numerous issues related to the shape or function of your nose. Even better, multiple issues can be addressed during the same surgery, giving you an excellent value.

Some of the more common issues treated with rhinoplasty include:

  • Decreased size of the nose
  • Bumps or depressions on the bridge of the nose
  • Nasal asymmetry
  • Wide, large, or upturned nostrils
  • Bulbous, hooked, upturned, or drooping nasal tip
  • Wide bridge


Dr. Brennan has a unique combination of technical skill, experience, and artistic vision needed to create gorgeous surgical outcomes. He can examine the size and shape of your nose in relation to the rest of your face and suggest alterations to create the best possible balance and symmetry.

How extensive is recovery after a rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty is a minimally invasive procedure that focuses on a very small area of tissue. That means a swifter recovery time and less postoperative discomfort as compared to many other surgical procedures.

Dr. Brennan designed a state-of-the-art procedure that ensures:

  • No pain
  • No packing
  • No downtime
  • Natural results


You’ll be able to return to normal activities within one day of your procedure. A minimal degree of temporary swelling and bruising is normal after rhinoplasty, but your body’s natural healing powers quickly work to restore a normal appearance. The incision lines for rhinoplasty are hidden inside your nose, so there is no visible scarring.

The bones, cartilage, and skin on your nose change very little as you age. You can expect the results of your rhinoplasty to be permanent, an uncommon and well-appreciated outcome for plastic surgery procedures.
