Confidence Looks Good on You!
While most are generally happy with their nose shape, we see many patients—of all ages—seeking cosmetic changes due to an inherited or prominent nose feature that may not look as good on them as their relatives. Discover newfound confidence with Rhinoplasty. A subtle change can make a big difference in your life. Our board-certified plastic surgeons at Hass Plastic Surgery offer rhinoplasty for men and women in West Palm Beach, Palm Beach Gardens, Jupiter, Palm Beach, Wellington, and the surrounding areas of Florida. It is one of the most common cosmetic surgeries performed among teens and young adults.
Uniquely tailored to you
Surgery of the nose, referred to as rhinoplasty, is a procedure to improve the proportion or appearance of your nose to give you more facial harmony. Rhinoplasty is typically requested to remove a hump, straighten a bridge, increase or decrease the size of nostrils, reshape the nose’s tip, or even open breathing passages. Rhinoplasty is one of Dr. Brian Hass’ favorite procedures to perform, and he has many happy patients who would agree.
“It’s such a satisfying procedure for the patient,” says Hass. “In fact, I love to see the newfound confidence this procedure makes for an individual of any age, whether they’re in their teens, twenties, or 50s, and combining it with a facelift.”
At a complimentary cosmetic consultation with Dr. Brian Hass, you will discuss your expectations, overall health, and how the procedure will be performed. Rhinoplasty can correct the following:
As long as you have realistic goals, are healthy, are over the age of 13, and make the change to fulfill your own desires and not someone else’s, then you are a good candidate.
We typically see teens at Hass Plastic Surgery for rhinoplasty (or, as some may say, ‘nose jobs’) during a school break in high school or summer breaks of college, but there is no right age. Many of our adult patients often wish they had done their noses earlier in life, so they will likely add the procedure to their face or eye lift rejuvenation in their 40s, 50s, or even 60s and 70s.
"Either way, if a child has completed most of their growth, is emotionally mature (enough to have elective surgery), then they can even consider surgery at an earlier age," —Dr. Brian Hass.
Younger adults are generally highly motivated to undergo plastic surgery to improve the look of their nose. Most seek to change an inherited profile or correct visible humps or depressions on the bridge of their nose, while others are more concerned with the width, nostril size, or even a bulbous or drooping tip. Overall, younger patients have thought out the changes they want to make, and therefore, they are great patients. In addition to the physical changes to their profile, we see many long-term benefits with this surgery, as most feel that improving this one feature gives them a more positive self-image.
Surgically, rhinoplasty is a short outpatient procedure performed in our AAAASF-certified facility typically under IV or ‘twilight’ sedation. Our plastic surgeons can do rhinoplasty utilizing either a closed or open technique. During surgery, the goal is to remove excess bone and cartilage to carefully reshape the nose. Stitches are inserted in the natural external fold or on the inner section of your nose.
Love what you see in the mirror
Our patients generally experience minimal discomfort but can have some swelling and bruising, which may last one to two weeks. Overall, it is a relatively quick recovery. Rhinoplasty patients are back to school or work within days and generally return to all physical activities within four to six weeks. Our surgeons will arrange your visit at 1 week after your procedure to remove your nasal splint. The recovery time following nose surgery is usually two to four weeks. Strenuous activities or exercise should be avoided during your recovery.

No. Dr. Our surgeons are highly skilled at concealing your incisions, most, or all are inside the nose.
Avoid all medications and supplements that might contribute to bleeding, as with any surgical procedure.
Yes, a nose job will change and improve the contour of your nose, especially in profile. If the tip of the nose is very bulbous, this can be refined.
Rhinoplasty surgery is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments, and it is also one of the safest. However, there are risks associated with any surgery. Our doctors and team will discuss these and other risks related to your procedure.
A dermal filler (such as Restylane or Juvéderm) may be an option if you wish to flatten lumps and bumps on your nose. A filler may temporarily hide minor flaws. However, more extensive modifications offer longer-lasting results, and the ability to modify the internal structure for improved function are all advantages of rhinoplasty. Our cosmetic surgeons and injectors can tell you more about non-surgical alternatives during your consultation.
Cosmetic procedures for the nose are not covered by insurance. If a patient has a deviated septum, they may want to see an ears, nose, and throat physician to determine insurance eligibility. If our team of cosmetic surgeons feels this is an option during a consultation, he can refer patients to doctors that have performed septoplasty surgeries at the same time as the cosmetic portion. Sometimes one of our plastic surgeons may perform septoplasty at the fime of the rhinoplasty.
Generally, patients can return to most exercise activities within three to four weeks. Strenuous exercise, or those specifically requiring facial coverings should be avoided for at least four weeks. Most patients are back to work within three to seven days.
