The nose is the most prominent feature of the face and is often the first feature that others notice. If you’re unhappy with your appearance, even a small change to the nose can make a drastic difference. Dr. Yirae Ort understands that an improvement in the appearance of your nose can give a boost to your confidence, and how you present yourself to others.

If you’re looking to change your nose, you’ll need an experienced surgeon who frequently performs rhinoplasty, a cosmetic nasal surgery that is aimed at altering the appearance of the nasal bones and soft tissue. Dr. Ort is highly regarded for delivering rhinoplasty in Seattle and Bellevue and specializes in giving you your desired aesthetic effect while maintaining the optimal functionality of the nose.

Noses come in various sizes and shapes, and one perfectly defined and well-balanced nose on one person may not suit the face of another. As such, deciding on the shape of your nose should be as individualized and diverse as you are.

When you’re ready to get the nose you’ve always dreamed of, a visit with Dr. Ort, a highly qualified facial plastic surgeon in Bellevue, will be the first step in this life-changing process. Dr. Ort will provide a thorough and personalized consultation with you to determine how to get your desired nose.


What Can A Rhinoplasty Do?

There are many ways that Rhinoplasty in Seattle can improve your self-confidence and quality of life. They include:

  • Repairing birth defects, including bone growth abnormalities
  • Narrowing the width of the nostrils
  • Narrowing the middle of the nose
  • Eliminating bumps/humps on the nose
  • Augmenting nose height, including Asian Rhinoplasty
  • Giving more definition to the nasal tip
  • Correcting a deviated nasal septum
  • Changing the angle of the nose
  • Changing the projection of the entire nose or its tip
  • Elevating a droopy nasal tip
  • Lengthening a short nose

During your consultation for rhinoplasty, Bellevue facial plastic surgeon Dr. Yirae Ort will discuss what type of rhinoplasty surgery can help address your concerns, as well as what you can expect from nose surgery. It is possible to have more than one issue addressed during a single rhinoplasty surgery.

Is Liquid Rhinoplasty Effective?

A Liquid Rhinoplasty, also called a non-surgical rhinoplasty, has many benefits and can be a good alternative if you’re looking for a less invasive alternative. This is an effective procedure that can sometimes give similar results to that of traditional surgical rhinoplasty. However, it’s important to know that it cannot correct every issue, is only temporary, and may not be an option for everyone.

Using Hyaluronic Acid fillers, which are composed of a synthetic version of a naturally occurring substance in the body, Dr. Ort can alter your nasal contour and the overall appearance of the nose. This is performed by administering a series of injections where the hyaluronic acid filler is sculpted and layered to achieve the desired look. The benefit is that you’ll leave your appointment with your new nose, and a bit of temporary swelling.

Your liquid rhinoplasty can last 1-2 years with the use of Hyaluronic Acid fillers. If you are considering the surgical route, a liquid rhinoplasty may also allow you to ‘test drive’ your new nose without surgical recovery or permanent commitment. During your consultation with Dr. Ort, she’ll be able to determine if this is a good option for you and whether you would be a good candidate for it. For some, a non-surgical approach may not be appropriate, suitable, or adequate to correct every issue with your nose.

There are several benefits to be had from precisely performed non-surgical rhinoplasty in Bellevue’s premier plastic surgery destination. However, for some patients, plastic surgery may not be the best option. Thankfully, there are still excellent options available for those who want to alter or enhance their facial features. Non-surgical rhinoplasty is not without its risks, and should only be performed by a qualified medical provider who has an intimate understanding of facial anatomy, like Dr. Ort.

If you are planning a Liquid Rhinoplasty, the costs will be determined by how many syringes of hyaluronic acid filler are required to achieve your aesthetic changes. Since there is a significantly shorter recovery with a liquid rhinoplasty, you will leave the office with immediate changes you wish to see.

Who Is A Good Candidate For Rhinoplasty?

A Seattle nose job is generally available to those who want to change the current shape or size of their nose. As the nose is a focal part of the face, it can be very distressing for patients to live with a nose that is too large, too small, or otherwise disproportionate to their facial structure. For patients in Bellevue and Seattle, rhinoplasty can also help patients who have endured an injury or struggle with a nasal defect.

It’s important to remember that not all patients are the same, and their needs may vary based on their facial structure and overall predispositions. For example, Asian Plastic Surgery addresses common aesthetic concerns regarding unique Asian facial structures and it should be performed by a plastic surgeon with this specialized experience. Dr. Ort can help deliver your customized procedure to ensure you get the best surgical approach for your individual needs.

During your consultation with Dr. Ort, she will perform a thorough examination of your nose. She’ll offer her professional recommendation, and discuss risks, benefits, and alternatives. You’ll be allowed to address your concerns, and have all of your questions answered, to come up with a customized plan that addresses your aesthetic needs while keeping your utmost safety in mind.

Rhinoplasty Preparation

First, you will have a thorough examination to determine if you are healthy enough for a Rhinoplasty. In addition, Dr. Ort will also assure you that you are mentally prepared for undergoing nasal surgery, and the subsequent recovery. An important part of the evaluation may include X-rays or a CT scan of your face so that Dr. Ort can carefully plan the surgery if it involves the nasal bones.

You may also require an additional assessment of the inside of your nose, to assure function and ensure that there are no breathing abnormalities. If they exist, it is usually possible to address all of these in a single rhinoplasty procedure.

What Is the Surgical Process?

Depending on your individualized rhinoplasty plan, the procedure will be done either with you completely asleep or completely awake with numbing medication. No matter what, the surgery can take a few hours to complete. Depending on the type of nose and the degree of repair, Dr. Ort can perform a “closed” rhinoplasty or an “open” rhinoplasty.

A closed rhinoplasty approach involves making incisions inside the nose so that you won’t have any visible scars. Open nasal surgery is used to repair more significant problems and requires incisions inside the nose and along the middle underside part of the nose. Keeping in mind the plastic surgery aesthetic, these scars are strategically placed, and the scars are intended to heal as imperceptibly as possible. During your surgery, the nasal cartilage may also be trimmed, refined, and sutured to achieve the desired nose shape. Nasal bones may also be shaved down or reshaped if necessary.

Recovery From Rhinoplasty

You will likely return home on the same day as your procedure but will require several days for recovery at home. We recommend having a family member or friend available to take you from the surgery center, as well as be available to assist you around the house for the first 24 hours. Dr. Ort will place supportive splints on your nose, and your nostrils may be packed with absorbent materials. During your recovery, it is important to follow Dr. Ort’s guidelines to heal well and to have the best possible outcome.

Dr. Ort will provide you with detailed instructions on how to care for your nose during the recovery time. It is important to note that, while you will see some results immediately, it could take up to one year to see the final results from your surgery. There will be some swelling and bruising for the first few weeks following treatment, but this should resolve in a short period. The nasal splint will likely be removed one week after the surgery.
