Facial plastic surgery has come a long way since the early days of rhinoplasty or the “nose job.” Dr. Goldman believes that your nose should harmonize elegantly with the other features of your face so that it is a perfect fit for you. He will discuss with you how subtle changes to your nasal structures can create better proportions in your nose, and can accentuate your other facial features, giving your face a natural sense of balance.
Rhinoplasty, or nose surgery, can be performed to improve the appearance of your nose, breathing issues, or to repair deformities caused by trauma or injury.
Rhinoplasty is the most delicate and complex of all facial plastic surgeries. Since the procedure must be individualized for each patient, Dr. Goldman will work with you to plan the procedure that will best meet your needs and goals.
Dr. Goldman also specializes in revision rhinoplasty / nasal reconstruction, helping those patients who are unsatisfied with earlier nose surgeries.
What you need to know
- Rhinoplasty procedures generally take 1-3 hours to perform depending on the complexity, and are performed as an outpatient procedure in the operating room with general anesthesia.
- The nose and surrounding tissue may experience temporary swelling and bruising for 1-2 weeks after the procedure. Some swelling will persist and gradually improve for 4-6 months after the procedure with final results obtained by 6-12 months.
- You will want 2 weeks to recover from this procedure. You may engage work remotely during this time, but we will ask you to refrain from exercise or any exertional activity for this period of 2 weeks after the procedure.
- A rhinoplasty can be performed simultaneously with other facial cosmetic procedures, such as a chin implant, upper or lower eyelid surgery, a brow lift, midface lift, or facelift to restore facial balance, and provide a natural rejuvenation.
Before and After Photographs
I absolutely recommend Boulder Valley Laser and Cosmetic. The staff are all very friendly and accommodating! The office space and exam rooms are incredibly clean too! I was referred here from my previous surgeon when I moved to Colorado, and I am so happy with the work Dr. Goldman has done! He took the time to understand what my needs were to create the best treatment plan for me. He also discussed with me the surgical options that he was considering to help me achieve my desired goal. I really appreciate how he didn’t rush into anything; we had many consultations before scheduling the surgery. Ultimately, I am very happy with the results from the surgery and all the hard work put into it!
Dr. Goldman has fixed my nose twice over the past five years both due to injury and trauma to the nose. Dr. Goldman has the best bedside manner and you feel extremely safe with him. He is knowledgeable and gets straight to the point. He goes over every detail with the patient so they know exactly what to expect and what their expectations should be. He most recently fixed my nose again two months ago after a dog had hit me in the face and re-injured my nose. Dr. Goldman has also made minor cosmetic changes to ensure my nose looked exactly how I wanted it. In office Dr. Goldman, as well as his medical assistant Becca Feldman are an absolute pleasure to work with. Everyone is kind and respectful.
