What is Rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty, commonly referred to as a nose job, reshapes the nose by decreasing or increasing size, changing the tip or bridge, narrowing the nostrils span, removing a bump, or changing the angle between the upper lip and nose.
Am I a Rhinoplasty Candidate?
Individuals who are seeking improvement, not perfection, are good candidates for this procedure. Teenagers should wait for surgery until they have completed their growth cycle. For a private consultation, please call Dr. Bradley at (954) 446-6464.
What are the Benefits of Rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty often alleviates breathing problems and corrects birth defects. Nose surgery can also make your nose more proportionate to other features on your face, enhancing your self-esteem.

How Should I Prepare for Surgery?
Before the day of surgery, Dr. Timothy Bradley will give you guidelines on eating and drinking, as well as avoiding medications, herbal supplements, vitamins, and smoking. Following these instructions is very important for a smooth surgery.
How Long Does Rhinoplasty Surgery Take?
The operation is usually an outpatient procedure involving general anesthesia. It may last from one to three hours.
What Happens on Surgery Day?
After administering anesthesia, Dr. Bradley will employ one of two techniques during surgery:
Open rhinoplasty involves an external incision in the area under the nose that separates the nostrils (columella). This method may leave a scar but is mostly invisible due to its location. The nose’s skin is detached, and the cartilage and bone are removed or added to achieve the desired shape. The skin is then draped over your new nose.
Closed rhinoplasty involves only internal incisions. This technique hides any scarring and decreases the time in the operating room.
Will I Spend the Night in Your Facility or Be Released After Surgery?
Because rhinoplasty is an outpatient procedure, you will go home the same day of surgery. We ask you to have a responsible adult accompany you to the surgery center to ensure you get home safely and stay with you for at least 24 hours.
When Can I Return to My Normal Lifestyle?
You should be back to work within one to two weeks but avoid strenuous activities for at least two to three weeks. You usually see an immediate difference, but it will take a year before your final results are realized.

Will my insurance cover the procedure?
If undergoing surgery for cosmetic reasons, your insurance provider will likely consider it elective surgery and not cover your rhinoplasty costs. However, if the operation is deemed medically necessary to improve nose function like breathing or sinus issues, your insurance company may cover your expenses. You should discuss these details with your healthcare insurance provider.
Is rhinoplasty painful?
Although there is discomfort after rhinoplasty, most patients find it a tolerable procedure. On a scale of one to ten, with ten being the most painful, the majority of patients rate it between three and four.
What other procedures can complement rhinoplasty?
Will I need a follow-up visit?
With every procedure, Dr. Bradley strives to provide personal follow-up visits to monitor your progress and answer any post-operative questions.
