I saved up to have a rhinoplasty in 2020 - Growing up, I always felt insecure about my nose. In school, I would often get teased and made fun of. This caused me to have quite a low self-esteem. I saved up to have a rhinoplasty in 2020. My nose looks so much better now. My only regret is, I wish I would have done this sooner.

I've always thought i had an unflattering nose. I would dodge pictures at all cost. It left me feeling insecure and unattractive. I decided to have a rhinoplasty and my experience was top notch. Dr. Katzen did a great job with my nose. I looks straight and perfect! I have no problem with pictures anymore, my friend even teases me for taking too many selfies.

Facelift and neck lift after weight loss - unbelievable results - It's not common to find many people talking about facelift and neck lift after weight loss. For me, as I was losing weight after bariatric surgery, I noticed my face started to get droopier and I looked older without the "fat" in my face. I underwent facelift and neck lift with Dr. Timothy Katzen and the results are unbelievable. He didn't over-tighten my face where it was obvious that I had something done. People I work with and family members continue to compliment how young and good I look.

Loving my New Body (Body Lift and Thigh Lift) - I met Dr. Katzen at a weight loss convention. He did a presentation on Plastic Reconstructive Surgery after Weight Loss. He talked about all the common procedures that his weight loss patients have had done, such as body lift, thigh lift, breast aug, arm lift, torsoplasty, facelift, etc...I was so intrigued by him and his skills. He literally transforms bodies so beautifully. At the time, I had just had bariatric surgery. One and a half years later, I went to him for a body lift and thigh lift. He made me a new body that I love so much.

Who is a Candidate for rhinoplasty?

Adults and teenagers over 16 years of age are candidates for rhinoplasty. If you find yourself frustrated with the appearance of your nose and have distinct issues you hope to improve, enhance, or correct, this procedure may be the ideal course of action. It's important to have realistic expectations for your outcomes because your nose and facial profile will be changed. Additionally, patients considering this surgery should have fully matured facial features and be no younger than 16 years. These factors will be addressed during your consultation, especially for adolescents.

What to expect during RHINOPLASTY

Nose surgery is performed with the patient under general anesthesia and is, in most cases, an outpatient procedure. Rhinoplasty offers different surgical techniques, depending on your aesthetic goals and concerns. Dr. Katzen performs cosmetic nose surgery using either an open or closed (endonasal) approach. The goal during the procedure is to decrease or eliminate excess bone, cartilage, and tissue, or to add cartilage for reconstruction. The nose is repositioned while the skin is draped over the newly structured framework. Sutures are positioned either inside the nose or within the natural external crease.

How long is recovery after RHINOPLASTY?

Upon completion of your cosmetic nose surgery, you will rest comfortably in the recovery suite and then be released to heal at home. The nose and the surrounding area will be swollen, bruised, and sore for the first few days. In most cases, some discoloration underneath the eyes will also be present. Using cold compresses and inflammatory medications can help with these effects. Your initial post-op follow-up appointment with Dr. Katzen will take place within a couple of days following surgery to check your healing process. It takes about 2 – 4 weeks to fully recover following rhinoplasty. During this crucial time, strenuous activity should be avoided.

Your Best Nose

Rhinoplasty is a simple surgery that can effectively address the displeasure you feel when looking at your profile. If you are dissatisfied with the size and shape of your nose, or if you suffer from breathing issues, rhinoplasty may help. Rhinoplasty is a popular cosmetic treatment with very high satisfaction and success rates. Plastic surgeon Dr. Timothy Katzen aims to reshape your nose so your whole face looks more proportionate and attractive. Even small tweaks can have a huge impact on the overall harmony of your face. We invite you to get in touch with J. Timothy Katzen, M.D. in Beverly Hills, CA to schedule a consultation.

Will my insurance cover functional nose surgery?

While rhinoplasty to improve your appearance is not covered by insurance, nose reshaping surgery to improve your breathing may be covered by insurance. If you are considering using your insurance, please tell Dr. Katzen during your consultation. Our office will help you submit the needed paperwork and information so your provider can process your claim.

Are there nonsurgical options to change my nose?

To smooth lumps and bumps on your nose, a wrinkle filler (like Juvéderm) may be an option. An injectable filler can temporarily correct minor imperfections on your nose, which can help you in your decision to proceed with rhinoplasty. Nose surgery is better for long-lasting results, larger changes, and to improve the internal structure for better function. During your consultation, Dr. Katzen will let you know if you may be a candidate for nonsurgical nose reshaping.

What about ethnic rhinoplasty?

Ethnic rhinoplasty focuses on improving the nose while still maintaining your cultural identity. This may be a consideration if you are Asian, African-American, or Middle Eastern. During your consultation with Dr. Katzen, you can discuss what you like about your nose and what you would like to change. This will allow him to customize your treatment plan so you get your best results.

Can I combine nose surgery with other facial surgeries?

Many patients consider combining nose surgery with another procedure, like chin or cheek augmentation. Combining surgeries for a dramatic result can be discussed during your consultation with Dr. Katzen. Once he has fully understood your goals, he can help you decide which procedures should be in your treatment plan. Nose reshaping surgery can help your whole face look more balanced so you should wait to see your results before considering another procedure.
