Rhinoplasty is surgery of the nose to correct asymmetry, remove a hump from the bridge, or reshape the nasal tip. Knowing that the nose is a key feature to a person’s face, Dr. Malek believes that artistry is most crucial in rhinoplasty. Scottsdale rhinoplasty patients only benefit from this level of focus. A nose should fit its surrounding facial structure. By approaching each nose individually and sculpting it through advanced techniques, our professional staff can reach a natural result.
Your nasal anatomy will be examined and illustrated during your consultation at our Scottsdale, AZ, clinic to identify the changes that can be made. The feedback that you provide regarding what you want will then be carefully applied in devising the appropriate surgical plan. This can affect where the incisions are made, as well as how the nose will be sculpted. Dr. Malek’s highest priority from start to finish is your satisfaction with the final result of your rhinoplasty.
The nose is the central focal point of the face and can make a huge difference in create disharmony or disproportion amongst the rest of the facial features. For these aesthetic reasons Rhinoplasty is often performed in order to create a more ideal appearance. There are also, however, functional reasons for Rhinoplasty. Men and women who have a difficult time breathing through the nose due to blockages like deviated septums may require Rhinoplasty. In many cases it may be a combination of aesthetic and functional reasons that bring people in to see Dr. Marc Malek to bring improvement to their nose.
Rhinoplasty surgery may be done on its own or in conjunction with other facial procedures such as face lift or chin or cheek implants to ensure a proper balance of features.

Recovery from a rhinoplasty generally takes 10-14 days depending on your natural ability to heal. There will be a sizable amount of swelling and bruising during these first few days, and you will be wearing a splint and some padding. It is also likely that you will have some difficulty breathing through your nose, this is normal.
