Are you considering a rhinoplasty or septoplasty procedure in the future? Dr. Markarian believes that informed patients are the best patients.

Below you can find before and after results of real patients of varying ages, ethnicities, and genders immediately following their procedure.

All photos in this gallery are actual results of Dr. Markarian‘s work. The photos have not been photoshopped in any way.

Photos taken immediately after surgery, and pre-swelling, can often show patients what their nose will look like when all of their eventual swelling goes down.

Immediately after a Rhinoplasty and Septoplasty

18-24 year old woman

This patient is shown immediately after after a Rhinoplasty to reduce her dorsal hump and refine her nasal tip.  A septoplasty was also performed to improve her breathing. Significant cartilage grafting was performed to not only improve her breathing but to help provide long-term stability and structure to the nose, and maintain its appearance long term.

An immediate photo from the Operating Room after surgery (before the swelling has set in) can show patients what their nose will look like once all the swelling has gone down – this can take up to a year.
