Rhinoplasty Surgery in Baltimore

Do you hate that bump on your nose? Do you think your nose is too wide? Do you ever think that people are staring at your nose?

Rhinoplasty will improve your look and confidence.

As the central feature of the face, the nose plays an important role in your overall appearance. If you are unhappy with your nose, you might find yourself consumed with thoughts about your looks, or you might worry that everyone you meet is staring at your nose. You do not have to experience these negative thoughts any longer. Rhinoplasty will fix what you don’t love about your nose to give you more confidence. Dr. Ronald Schuster performs rhinoplasty to help individuals concerned about the size or shape of their nose achieve a more proportionate and attractive look.

Dr. Schuster on Rhinoplasty


Rhinoplasty Techniques:

  • Every nose and face is different. It’s important to evaluate each person’s likes and dislikes about their nose. Dr. Schuster does not do the same nose on everyone. Many changes can be performed in order to improve appearance and keep the nose in good balance with the rest of the face. During your consultation at our Maryland center, he can determine if rhinoplasty is appropriate for you based on your unique goals and needs
  • An open rhinoplasty technique is used about 80 percent of the time. This method provides for full view of structures of the nose, which allows for more precision. It is especially useful for irregular tips and secondary (redo) surgery. All incisions are on the inside except one on the undersurface.
  • Closed rhinoplasty is used 20 percent of the time. This technique may be used when little change is needed in the tip. All incisions are on the inside of nose.
  • Both general and twilight anesthesia available
  • Outpatient procedure, though arrangements can be made for an overnight stay
  • At our Maryland center, rhinoplasty may be combined with other cosmetic options to enhance results, including facial procedures like chin surgerybrow lift, face lift, eyelid surgery, Restylane®, BOTOX® Cosmetic.

Recovery After Rhinoplasty:

  • Relatively easy; because the nose is no longer packed after rhinoplasty, the procedure is much more comfortable
  • Splint worn on outside of nose for one week
  • Recommend one week off from work/school
  • Back to full activity in three weeks
  • Must be careful not to hit your nose for four to six weeks

Nose Job Candidates – Factors to Consider

We have worked with nose job candidates from throughout the Baltimore, Maryland area, and can help determine if you would be an ideal candidate for cosmetic surgery. It is important that individuals considering rhinoplasty (or any plastic surgery procedure for that matter) have realistic expectations, be making the decision free of outside pressure, and possess strong mental fortitude, as the recovery process can be mentally and physically trying. That being said, specific considerations for nose job candidates include:

  • Overall health
  • Shape, size, and symmetry of the nose
  • Shape, size, and width of the nostrils
  • Breathing irregularities or difficulties
  • Appearance of nose ridges or “bumps”

A number of characteristics can be corrected with rhinoplasty treatment, making it a wonderful option for individuals who are unhappy with the natural shape of their nose as well as those who have suffered a broken nose and would like to repair the appearance. Whether you have a prominent ridge that you would like to reduce or eliminate, or you are seeking symmetry, rhinoplasty can be used to refine the shape of your nose and satisfy your goals.

Rhinoplasty Cost

At the cosmetic surgery practice of Dr. Ronald H. Schuster, we understand that rhinoplasty cost is an important factor for our Baltimore area patients. To help meet our patients’ needs, we strive to make our cosmetic surgery procedures as affordable as possible, and we accept multiple payment options for our patients’ benefit.

Cost Considerations

We understand the value of affordable treatment, but we stress to our patients that cost should not be the only consideration when determining which procedure to undergo and which doctor to choose. It is important to remember that cosmetic surgical procedures are invasive treatments; as such, there are inherent risks, and most require a recovery period that can last several weeks to several months. Because of these considerations, it is extremely important that individuals seek only qualified, experienced plastic surgeons. Board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, Chief of the Plastic Surgery Division at Northwest Hospital Center in Baltimore and intimately familiar with cosmetic surgery, Dr. Ronald Schuster can provide you with the highest standard of care.

It is important to note that we cannot provide a quote for rhinoplasty cost without first discussing the patient’s goals in person. As rhinoplasty is tailored specifically to each patient’s needs, each procedure is different, and this affects the cost of treatment. When determining cost, we look at several factors:

  • Overall health of the patient
  • Complexity of the procedure
  • Type of technique required
  • Necessary post-operative care

After looking at these factors and discussing your goals with you in person, we can provide you with a more accurate quote on rhinoplasty cost at our Baltimore practice.
