Austin Face & Body is very honored and pleased to have Dr. Paul Nassif as part of our team to perform rhinoplasty procedures. Dr. Nassif is a world-famous surgeon who performs life-changing rhinoplasties of all kinds to bring his patients a new confidence and better quality of life. 

Rhinoplasty performed by Dr. Paul Nassif

Highly respected and well-known surgeon Dr. Paul Nassif is so amazing at what he does that he has his own TV series, Botched, where he fixes other surgeons’ mistakes. Dr. Nassif performs primary rhinoplasty, ethnic rhinoplasty, revision rhinoplasty, Asian rhinoplasty, functional rhinoplasty, and can also implement absorbable nasal implants to help patients breathe more easily. Dr. Nassif loves what he does, and is passionate about improving the lives of his patients through his work.

What to expect during rhinoplasty surgery

By midnight before your rhinoplasty, you will need to stop eating or drinking, unless you have been advised by us to take medication. The day of your surgery, you will be given anesthesia—most likely, general anesthesia. Once you are comfortable, Dr. Nassif will make the incisions for the surgery.

These are typically made within the nose, and very small incisions may be made at the nostrils. Dr. Nassif will carefully re-shape your nose in accordance with the aesthetic goals you will have gone over during your consultation. After using his artist’s eye and his surgeon’s skill to shape your new nose, Dr. Nassif will close the incisions and, if needed, work on any problems you may have with your septum.

Before & After

Results and recovery from rhinoplasty surgery

Rhinoplasty patients will need about two weeks’ recovery time post-surgery. Before your appointment, you should have everything that you will need already at your home, such as medications and other products to help with your recovery. You will be told during your consultation what medications and products these are, and you will be able to get most of them at our office.

When surgery is complete, you will be wearing a cast on your nose, and a drip pad under it. You will also have stitches inside and under your nose. We will give you details home care instructions so that you have as smooth a recovery as possible. (You can watch Dr. Nassif’s own rhinoplasty journey here.)

During your two weeks of recovery, your eyes will be bruised, and you will have swelling. You will experience some discomfort during these two weeks, but most patients find it to be very tolerable. You should also expect to feel very congested for a week, but do not blow your nose. This could disrupt your stitches.

You will see Dr. Nassif the day after your surgery for a checkup, and then you will see him one week after that to have your stitches and splints removed, and your cast taken off. After this comes the third post-op visit, where any tape and extra stitches will be removed. Your healing progress will be monitored, and you will be given scar gel and arnica cream, which you can begin using. Your nose will change significantly between one to two weeks, and by the third month, about 70% of the healing will be complete. At one year, it will be 90% healed, and by two years, it will be 100% healed.
