Nose Job Hartford, Connecticut

Many patients feel insecure with the size or shape of their nose and desire surgery to their nasal bridge, nasal tip, or nostrils to enhance their confidence. Nose reshaping procedures were the most commonly performed cosmetic procedure in the United States in 2020 and the American Society of Plastic Surgery reported that over 352,000 procedures were performed.

What is a Nose Job?

A nose job is any type of cosmetic surgery performed on the nose to either reduce its size, enhance its size or alter the shape or angle of the nose. The procedure can be performed using two main techniques: closed rhinoplasty and open rhinoplasty. These techniques involve creating incision lines that are designed to be hidden so that no obvious scarring is left after the procedure. The skin is then lifted for open rhinoplasty techniques or can be left in place for closed rhinoplasty procedures. Various alterations can then take place including adding a graft material, removing cartilage or bone, and reshaping areas of the nose before closing the incisions with stitches.

If you are considering undergoing a nose reshaping procedure you should seek the advice of a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon who has significant expertise in performing a variety of nose reshaping procedures. You can book a consultation with Dr. Markarian to discuss your surgical needs and to receive expert surgical advice.

What are the different Nose Job techniques?

Patients undergo nose reshaping procedures for a variety of different concerns and so each procedure is customized to ensure that the patient’s surgical goals are met and the result suits their facial structure. There are various reasons why patients choose to undergo a nose reshaping procedure, so it is important to visit a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon who has specific expertise in performing the type of rhinoplasty procedure you desire. Some of the most common aspects that nose job patients desire to have altered include:

Alarplasty– this is a specific nose reshaping technique that focuses on a patient’s nostrils. Some patients wish to reduce the width of their nostrils and so the technique removes a wedge of the nostril to bring them closer together.

Altering Nose Size– many nose reshaping procedures are performed to reduce the size of a patient’s nose as they feel it is too large and appears out of proportion with their other facial features. Dr. Markarian helps reduce the size of the nose by shaving down any bone or cartilage to whatever extent is most suitable for a patient’s face and goals.

Altering the Angle of the Nose– some patients have concerns over their nose being asymmetrical since it leans to one side or their nostrils appear uneven. Both the nasal bridge and tip can be altered to achieve a straighter nose and produce a more symmetrical facial appearance.

Breathing Issues– some patients suffer from breathing issues and wish to have their breathing enhanced alongside their nose reshaping procedure. However, other patients do not desire to have any aesthetic alterations made to their nose and simply want to fix a medical issue such as having a deviated septum. These cases can be resolved or improved by undergoing Septoplasty Surgery. Dr. Markarian is an expert in both aesthetic rhinoplasty procedures and septoplasty surgery.

Dorsal Hump Reduction- one of the most common concerns nose reshaping patients have is that they wish to reduce the size of their dorsal hump. This refers to the bump that can occur in varying sizes on a patient’s nasal bridge which can cause the nose to look quite large or create a hump when they are viewed from the side. Dorsal hump reduction is performed to remove the cartilage on the nasal bridge which is causing the bump so that a flatter line is created from the top of the nasal bridge down to the nasal tip.

How much does a Nose Job Cost in Hartford, Conneticut?

The average cost of a Nose Job ranges from between $6,000 and $15,000. This price varies significantly due to the fact that the different nose reshaping techniques require very different lengths of time and expertise. For example, techniques such as alarplasty or nasal tip refinement tend to be cheaper as they are less extensive compared to a nose reshaping procedure that is aiming to alter multiple areas of the nose. There are various payment options available for patients which we outline in our blog ‘Boston Rhinoplasty Cost: How Can I Afford It?’ Additional factors that cause the cost of a nose job to vary include:

  • If another surgery is combined with the procedure
  • Type of anesthesia used
  • The length of the surgery
  • Hospital or operating room charges 
  • Experience and expertise of surgeon 
  • Surgery location
