Rhinoplasty can be life-changing. Dr. Wayne's patients see the most natural, beautiful results with an easy recovery.

The nose is the most defining characteristic of the face – even a slight alteration can improve a patient’s appearance. In addition to having rhinoplasty performed for cosmetic reasons, it can also be done with a functional goal in mind – to improve breathing.

Understanding how the appearance of the nose relates to the surrounding face is very important. Subtle changes in the look of the nose can have a dramatic effect on the appearance of the eyes and lips, often drawing more attention to them rather than away from them. When your surgery has healed, ideally your nose will look like you were born with it… this is Dr. Wayne and Dr. Rhodes’ goal.


Understanding How Rhinoplasty Works

It is important to understand how changes made to the outside of the nose impact the nasal passages. Almost every modification to the cartilage and bone during rhinoplasty serves to narrow the inside of the nose. This can restrict breathing. Techniques need to be performed during the surgery to counter this tendency and make the nose breath better than before surgery.

Modifications of the bone, cartilage, fat and muscle must be made very carefully. Rather than simply removing valuable structural cartilage and bone, it is often reinforced at the same time. This creates a nose that not only looks better and breathes better but will maintain a natural look for many years.

Extensive training and experience in rhinoplasty surgery is a must for your surgeon. A background in ear, nose and throat surgery gives Dr. Wayne and Dr. Rhodes unique qualifications to perform this very challenging surgery. Dr. Rhodes or Dr. Wayne will take pictures of you in the office and present them to you using a computer program that allows them to show you how your nose will look after surgery. This gives you the unique opportunity to influence the planning process.


Revision Rhinoplasty in Oklahoma City

The best chance of getting a perfect result in rhinoplasty is with the first surgery. Many factors contribute to the need for revision surgery on the nose. Breathing problems, pinching, twisting, lumps and bumps all may appear in the healing process. Most of these are due to surgical errors; however, some are unavoidable. Healing after surgery is very unpredictable, as the nose must adapt to the new structure formed under the skin.

Revision rhinoplasty is performed to correct unsatisfactory results from an initial nasal surgery. Sometimes the surgery is simple – requiring minor adjustments or finishing an incomplete surgery. At other times, this surgery may require more complex grafting and rebuilding of a weakened nose. Each succeeding rhinoplasty becomes more difficult, which is why experienced, specialized facial plastic surgeons, such as Dr. Wayne and Dr. Rhodes, are the best choice for this procedure.


Origami Rhinoplasty (Nose Job)

At W Facial Aesthetics we have developed a special technique called the Origami Rhinoplasty. This way of doing the Rhinoplasty is the result of over 20 years of experience performing the surgery, creating what we believe is a long-lasting, natural result. This technique avoids the cutting and removal of cartilage and bone that are more common in the traditional Rhinoplasty surgery, instead the Origami Rhinoplasty technique uses gentle restructuring of the tissue and cartilage for a more natural looking nose.

Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty

W Facial Aesthetics proudly offers ultrasonic rhinoplasty, a groundbreaking technique that reshapes the nose and makes it appear more proportional. With fewer risks than a traditional nose job and a faster recovery time, this advanced procedure uses high-speed ultrasonic sound waves to refine the nose bone, in addition to shaving down the cartilage in the nose—without causing any damage to the soft tissue surrounding it. By harnessing the power of ultrasonic energy, ultrasonic rhinoplasty promises unparalleled precision, reduced tissue trauma, and a smoother, more shapely nose.

Preservation Rhinoplasty (Nose Job) in OKC

Preservation rhinoplasty offers a harmonious balance between aesthetic refinement and functional integrity. Our approach at W Facial Aesthetics is tailored to preserve your nose’s natural form while enhancing its overall appearance. With minimal downtime and a focus on long-term results, our preservation rhinoplasty stands as a testament to modern surgical artistry. This technique is a transformative endeavor that maintains the uniqueness of your facial features and supports the structural foundation of your nose. By opting for preservation rhinoplasty, you’re choosing a path of subtle yet significant change, safeguarding the essence of your natural look while promoting a refreshed, rejuvenated appearance.

Liquid Nose Job (Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty)

A liquid nose job, also known as non-surgical rhinoplasty, is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure designed to enhance the appearance of your nose without the need for surgery. This innovative technique involves the skillful injection of dermal fillers, such as hyaluronic acid-based products, into strategic areas of the nose to reshape and refine its contours.

Some key benefits include:

  • Quick and Convenient
  • No Downtime
  • Customized Results
  • Non-Permanen
  • Minimal Discomfort

Rhinoplasty FAQs

While rhinoplasty and a nose job are the same in nature and both have the same meaning, the use of these two terms will differ depending on the audience you are speaking with. Rhinoplasty is a medical term that a plastic surgeon would use when altering a patient’s nose shape and size. However, once healed, their patient might refer to it as a nose job when discussing the procedure while amongst their peers.

Rhinoplasty is a very in-demand procedure, and it is one of the most well-known procedures performed on the nose, although it is not the only one. For example, septoplasty and turbinate reduction are also procedures that can impact an individual’s nose’s appearance and airflow. But unlike rhinoplasty, these other existing procedures aren’t performed solely for cosmetic purposes.

Here at W. Facial Aesthetics, we generally schedule patients for their procedure four to six weeks after the consultation.

An important factor that can delay your rhinoplasty procedure is your overall health. The surgeon will review your medical history, and provide you with a timeline and the soonest date that you can schedule your procedure.

It is completely normal to have some concerns about the level of pain that may come with a rhinoplasty. Unlike non-invasive procedures, it is common for minimally-invasive procedures such as rhinoplasty to come with a little discomfort. However, once you have fully healed, you can expect long-lasting results, if you properly abided by the post-op instructions.

When it comes to rhinoplasty, it is estimated that 72 hours after the procedure, any pain you experience will begin to subside. It can take longer to heal in special circumstances, like if your nose is bumped or if an infection were to occur. The average patient experiences mild swelling, and the area can remain tender for up to three months after the procedure.

Healing from rhinoplasty can seem like a rather lengthy process. It takes the average patient anywhere from five to six weeks to fully recover from their rhinoplasty procedure. Throughout this timeline, there are these levels of healing stages you can expect to see:

  • Week 2: The patient can return to work and enjoy low-impact activities
  • Week 3: The patient’s swelling levels should have reduced by around 70%.
  • Week 4: The patient results should be more prominent; almost fully recovered.
  • Week 5: The patient can increase activity levels by around 80%.
  • Week 6: The patient’s nose is strong, and its shape has developed; can resume activity at 100%.

While this recovery timeframe can be accurate for some patients, it may not be realistic for all, so it’s vital to make sure your plastic surgeon takes the necessary time to get to know each patient.

At W. Facial Aesthetics, Dr. Ivan Wayne and Dr. Robert Rhodes pride themselves on their commitment to familiarizing themselves with each patient and their unique needs to develop a personalized plan, so each patient can achieve the results they desire.

While there are no age requirements for a nose job, the average rhinoplasty client is around 18 to 40 years of age. Remember, a nose job is a permanent procedure requiring mental stability, maturity, and of course, a sense of responsibility.

With that being said, some rhinoplasty recipients can be as young as 15 years old. In fact, most doctors will not perform rhinoplasty on teenagers until their nasal growth is complete (around 15 years old for girls and 16 years old for boys).

The duration of rhinoplasty procedures can last anywhere between one to four hours. Patients will be given anesthesia, so they will not be conscious during the procedure.

If properly maintained, the results of your nose job can last a lifetime. Since this procedure is designed to permanently alter the appearance of your nose, there is no specific time frame where you can anticipate your results wearing off.

Life after rhinoplasty is like a dream. You’re finally beginning to see the results that you desired, and things seem like they are returning to normal. But remember, you are still healing, and directly after having a nose job, there are still things you can do that can have a negative impact on your results.

As a result, we advise patients to avoid the following activities:

  • Heavy lifting or strenuous exercise
  • Blowing your nose
  • Wearing glasses on your nose for long periods of time
  • Go swimming
  • Sunbathe
  • Anything that could cause harm to your new nose

After rhinoplasty, the way you sleep can be essential to how well your nose will heal. Keeping your head elevated is key to preventing swelling and congestion from occurring. Your surgeon may also suggest that you do not sleep on your stomach or side for several weeks (generally 10-14 days) until you recover.

To fully elevate your nose, you can place two pillows under your neck, while lying flat on your back. Please avoid tilting your head back, as it could cause congestion and strain your healing nostrils.

Failure to follow these instructions can result in putting unnecessary pressure on your nose, which can impact your results.

Like any surgery, there are risks that can occur when you make the decision to undergo rhinoplasty. For starters, since it will require that patients be sedated, issues with anesthesia and uncommon reactions are not fully out of the question.

Rhinoplasty lifts and carves your nose to perfection. Cosmetic nose surgery reduces the size of your nose; hence, these alterations can cause difficulty breathing.

Lack of following your surgeon’s instructions can also result in infections and skin discoloration from occurring. However, even some of the most common risks associated with rhinoplasty can be prevented by properly caring for your nose as it heals and abiding by your discharge instructions.

The cost of a nose job, or rhinoplasty, can truly vary. Your location, your coverage, and your plastic surgeon can all play into how much your procedure will cost in the end. Generally, a rhinoplasty procedure here at W Facial Aesthetics can range anywhere from $12,800-$14,300 depending on your individual goals and the specifics of your situation.

Since it’s a cosmetic procedure, most insurance companies will not cover the cost of a rhinoplasty procedure. That said, you will most likely be responsible for covering these expenses on your own.

Your decision to undergo rhinoplasty will be an investment in time and money. At W. Facial Aesthetics, we provide convenient financing options for our patients, and we have over 25 years of combined training and practice experience, which can help make your decision an educated and informative one.

Finding rhinoplasty in Oklahoma City that can provide you with the appearance you want doesn’t have to be challenging.
