Rhinoplasty, commonly called a nose job, is a specialized surgical procedure aimed at reshaping the nose to enhance facial harmony and balance. Located in Warrendale, PA, Aestique Plastic Surgery recognizes the nose's significance on facial appearance, offering Rhinoplasty to refine its structure, correct defects, and improve breathing issues.

Anyone unhappy with their nose and with realistic expectations, especially those aged 14-16 and above, is deemed a suitable candidate by Dr. Lazzaro.
While initial results are seen about five to seven days post-surgery after splint removal, the final appearance can fully manifest in six months to a year.
Rhinoplasty results are typically long-lasting, often permanent, with the final appearance stabilizing between six months to a year.
With minimal post-operative discomfort due to the absence of nasal packing, patients experience peak swelling and bruising 48-72 hours after surgery. Still, they can resume routine activities within days, avoiding strenuous tasks for a few weeks.
Communication with Dr. Lazzaro is crucial. He will provide detailed pre-operative and post-operative instructions, including dietary restrictions, activity limitations, and care for the surgical site.
The surgery, usually taking 1-2 hours, is done under general anesthesia. Dr. Lazzaro uses the open rhinoplasty method, making a discreet incision for precision. He then reshapes the bone, cartilage, and tissue for the desired outcome.
