“Patient care and safety is paramount to me. Therefore, I perform most of the nose jobs in my on-site Surgical facility which is accredited by the AAAHC. Likewise, I am attended by excellent anesthesiologists and nurses. The anesthesia provided is “sedation” where the patient breathes on their own and recovers quickly. Some procedures are performed under local anesthesia. As part of my patient care, I am personally follow up with my patients after the procedure to make sure their concerns have been addressed.

4. Awareness of the rhinoplasty procedure and pre/post-op instructions
Most rhinoplasty plastic surgery procedures are done under local/general anesthesia. We give patients pre-op directions to follow before they come to our on-site surgical facility. Then, we give our patients post-op instructions and advice after the rhinoplasty procedure was performed. The nose and eyes may swell for a few days after the plastic surgery procedure was performed. It can take a few months for the swelling to completely disappear and to see the full results of the rhinoplasty procedure. Patients must avoid intense exercise and maintain a healthy lifestyle. Also, rhinoplasty patients need to fully rest after the procedure. Finally, patients must follow all post-op instructions, advice and follow up with plastic surgeon Dr. Shahar to get the best possible results and above all the most natural-looking results.
What is Secondary Rhinoplasty?
Patients usually go for a secondary rhinoplasty to fix specific persisting imbalances, either newly formed or that became more noticeable. The nose tends to be imbalanced compared to other facial features due to a first rhinoplasty surgery, healing complications, incomplete follow up or plastic surgery techniques. A secondary rhinoplasty is often much more complicated than a primary rhinoplasty.
Dr. Shahar performs primary as well as secondary rhinoplasty, quite frequently on patients who have previously had a nose job performed with less than optimal results.. Though it is easier to achieve optimal results on primary rhinoplasty than on secondary rhinoplasty, his experience and expertise allow him to successfully handle secondary rhinoplasty and challenging noses.
How we Achieve a Natural Looking Nose Job
What about Nose Job Recovery
Rhinoplasty surgery is performed in a surgical center. The patient is usually discharged about 2-3 hours after surgery. After 5 days Dr. Shahar removes a small splint over the patient’s nose . After the procedure some swelling and possibly some bruising may appear under the eyes. This is absolutely common and normal. It usually alleviates within a week or so. The minimal discomfort is easily controlled with analgesics (pain killers). Final results may take months of recovery time, but the improvement lasts indefinitely.
