Elevate Your Nasal
Form & Function

Primary rhinoplasty is a surgical intervention focused on improving the form and function of the nose. It is often performed to enhance the aesthetics of the nose, addressing issues like its size, shape, or proportionality to the face. Beyond cosmetic benefits, primary rhinoplasty can also rectify breathing difficulties caused by structural issues within the nose. By reshaping the nasal framework, Dr. Fahradyan offers a chance to elevate appearance and functionality.

Primary Rhinoplasty Corrects:

  • Nose size concerns
  • Irregular or asymmetrical nasal shape
  • Nasal bridge humps or depressions
  • Wide or flaring nostrils
  • Crooked or deviated nasal septum
  • Altered or unbalanced nasal tip
  • Breathing difficulties due to structural issues
  • Congenital or injury-related nasal deformities

Functional Rhinoplasty

Functional rhinoplasty focuses on improving nasal function rather than aesthetic enhancements. It addresses issues related to breathing difficulties caused by structural abnormalities within the nose. This primary rhinoplasty in Thousand Oaks can correct problems like a deviated septum, nasal valve collapse, or other obstructions, ensuring better airflow and respiratory function. While functional rhinoplasty may involve some cosmetic improvements, its main goal is to enhance the patient’s ability to breathe comfortably and freely.

Teenage Rhinoplasty

Teenage rhinoplasty is performed on adolescents, typically between the ages of 16 and 18, to address aesthetic or functional concerns related to the nose. It requires careful consideration, as the nose is still growing during this period. Dr. Fahradyan evaluates each case individually, ensuring the patient is physically and emotionally mature enough for the procedure. Teenage rhinoplasty can improve the patient’s self-esteem and correct congenital or injury-related issues.

Ethnic Rhinoplasty

Ethnic rhinoplasty caters to individuals of diverse cultural backgrounds. It enhances the aesthetics of the nose while preserving markers of the patient’s ethnic identity. Dr. Fahradyan is keenly aware of the unique nasal features and proportions of different ethnic groups. He curates personalized surgical plans to offer a more harmonious appearance and correct concerns about the nasal shape or size while respecting the patient’s cultural heritage. If you are concerned about maintaining your ethnic facial characteristics this primary rhinoplasty in Thousand Oaks is right for you.

Cleft Rhinoplasty

Cleft rhinoplasty corrects the nasal deformities associated with a cleft lip and palate. Individuals with a cleft often have nasal irregularities, such as misshapen nostrils or a deviated septum. Cleft rhinoplasty improves the aesthetics and function of the nose, restoring a more normal appearance and addressing breathing difficulties. It’s a fairly complex procedure, and it should only be performed by surgeons like Dr. Fahradyan, who has a keen understanding of the unique challenges presented by a cleft lip and palate.

Feminizing Rhinoplasty

Feminizing rhinoplasty is tailored to enhance the nasal features of individuals seeking a more traditionally feminine appearance. It typically involves refining the nose’s shape, size, and proportions to create a softer, more delicate look in harmony with the rest of the face. Dr. Fahradyan considers the patient’s specific goals and facial structure to achieve the desired result while preserving their unique identity. Feminizing rhinoplasty can also be a component of a broader gender-affirming journey for transgender individuals.

Male Rhinoplasty

Male rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure designed to address the unique aesthetic and functional concerns of men seeking nasal refinement. This primary rhinoplasty in Thousand Oaks aims to create a harmonious and balanced appearance while maintaining a masculine look. Male noses typically feature distinct characteristics, and Dr. Fahradyan takes care to preserve these traits. Common goals include reducing nasal humps, refining the nasal tip, and correcting breathing issues. Male rhinoplasty is tailored to individual preferences and facial anatomy.

Primary Rhinoplasty FAQs

Why is it called “primary” rhinoplasty?

Primary rhinoplasty in Thousand Oaks is called so because it refers to the initial rhinoplasty that a person undergoes. Subsequent procedures, if needed, are referred to as “revision” rhinoplasty, as they involve making corrections or adjustments to a nose that has previously undergone surgery.

Am I a candidate for primary rhinoplasty?

Candidates should be in good overall health, have realistic expectations, and be at an age where nasal growth has stabilized, usually around 16 or 18. Please consult Dr. Fahradyan for a thorough evaluation to determine your candidacy.

What's the difference between open and closed rhinoplasty?

Open rhinoplasty involves an external incision on the columella, allowing better visibility and access to nasal structures. Closed rhinoplasty uses incisions within the nostrils, leaving no visible external scars. The choice depends on the complexity of the procedure.

Will there be visible scarring?

In closed rhinoplasty, the scars are hidden inside the nostrils. Open rhinoplasty may leave a small scar on the columella, but it’s usually discreet.

What is the recovery time?

The recovery time for primary rhinoplasty in Thousand Oaks varies, but patients typically return to light activities within a week. Full recovery, including the resolution of swelling, can take several weeks to months.
