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 videos of real patients at the moment they saw their nose for the first time following rhinoplasty.

Our rhinoplasty video unveilings are often taken a week or less after surgery, so keep in mind that these patients still have considerable swelling that will continue to heal over time. 85% of the swelling from the procedure will usually dissipate within 3 weeks to 3 months.

Before and after pictures are essential. But, they fail to capture what rhinoplasty procedures mean to our patients and their lives. Unveilings capture the moment when a patient sees their result for the very first time and can often be an emotional experience. That is why you must feel confident and comfortable with the plastic surgeon you choose.

All videos in this gallery are actual results of Dr. Markarian‘s work. The videos have not been altered in any way, except for cropping and adding subtitles to make our content as accessible as possible.
