Rhinoplasty (Nose Job) Miami
Miami Rhinoplasty for a more natural looking appearance of the nose
While there is no such thing as a perfect nose, you may have features of your own nose that you wish to change. It may be larger than you prefer, or you may be displeased with the shape, and it might make you self-conscious. For some people, the nose can cause breathing problems. And for a group of people, trauma or injury may have caused damage that changed the appearance of their nose. Whether it is a cosmetic problem, medical reason, or injury situation, many people want to change the appearance of their nose. Fortunately, trained professionals like Dr. Bared, a facial plastic surgeon in Miami, can help you by performing a rhinoplasty, also called a nose job. This procedure may be the answer to your problems with the appearance and function of your nose.

When to Consider a Rhinoplasty (Nose Job) Procedure
So, is a rhinoplasty procedure right for you? There are many characteristics which a nose job can correct, such as:
- Size and facial balance
- Shape and width
- Nose Profile
You may have features of your nose such as a hump in your nose profile, a crooked nose, a bulbous tip, or a deviated septum which you would like to see corrected. If you want to change any of these about your own nose, then you might be a rhinoplasty candidate. Aside from a wish to change the characteristics of your nose, there are also health considerations that are taken into account by any reputable facial plastic surgeon. Dr. Bared assured me, his plan would fix my nose, and clear my breathing passages. Dr. Bared was very confident everything would be fine, and my surgery came out as planned. A good candidate for a rhinoplasty procedure is in good physical health and doesn’t smoke. Smoking is unhealthy, and it can impede and greatly increase risks during the healing process throughout a patients’ recovery after a rhinoplasty is performed. In addition to this, nose job candidates need to have realistic expectations of the results they can achieve and the appropriate motivations for surgery. If you meet these qualifications, then you are a good candidate for a rhinoplasty procedure, and you can set up a consultation with Dr. Bared in South Miami, FL.
The Rhinoplasty Consultation with Miami Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Bared
When you have determined that a nose job is something that can work for you, then you can set up a consultation with Dr. Bared at his office in South Miami. Additionally, Dr. Bared’s reputation is also highly sought after; for patients coming in from out of town, he also provides a photo review for those not able to meet him live for consultation. Dr. Bared has a background in otolaryngology and is a fellowship-trained facial plastic surgeon. He has extensive training and experience, so you can get some of the best work and professional advice available. His fellowship training in Chicago was directly under the teaching of Dr. Dean Toriumi, a world-renowned facial plastic surgeon and leader in rhinoplasty. Many patients trust Dr. Bared as their selected facial plastic surgeon because of his expertise being focused solely on the face. Patients often seek Dr. Bared’s expertise in the most difficult and challenging nasal cases. The consultation is a very important step in the nose job process, as it will give the doctor necessary information about your health, and it will allow you to get the information you need before having surgery performed. Dr. Bared sees the consultation as a means to converse and establish mutual trust. He will listen to your concerns, perform a thorough nasal examination, and discuss with you what may be safely and realistically achieved in your case. Some of the things you may discuss with him:
- Why you want the surgery
- What results you expect and desire
- Are those expectations realistic
- Your medical history
- Your current state of health
- Your personal habits and lifestyle
Surgery for cosmetic reasons is a very individualized process, so the doctor will discuss your personal motivations and desired results in order to carefully plan the procedure to fit your needs. It may be a good idea for you to make a list of questions you have about the procedure, so that you don’t forget anything you want to ask about during your appointment. Dr. Bared will be happy to answer any questions you have, so that you are fully informed. An additional benefit of working with Dr. Bared’s Miami office is that each patient is assigned their own personal Patient Advisor, who can answer specific questions regarding Dr. Bared’s background and philosophies, as well as set a good time to meet with Dr. Bared for consultation.

Photography and Computer Imaging
During your consultation with Dr. Bared, he takes high quality photographs of your nose. Dr. Bared believes that good quality photos from multiple angles are imperative to the analysis of the nose and adds to the physical examination. During your consultation, Dr. Bared will perform a series of photos using a very high resolution camera under standardized lighting. High quality photography is even more important in today’s era of cellular phone cameras and ‘selfies’ as one must appreciate that the small lens in these phone cameras result in what is known as ‘fish-eye’ distortion of the image. It is through the use of proper lighting and photography that image distortions can be essentially eliminated.
Dr. Bared utilizes computer imaging as a means of communication. Dr. Bared feels that computer imaging is a great tool to show patient’s the potential results of the surgery. He finds that it is a great way to understand the patients goals while also giving them a sense of what can be realistically achieved with a rhinoplasty procedure. Computer imaging is not a guarantee of the outcome as everyone’s healing and anatomy poses different variables but it is a great means for you and for Dr. Bared to understand the goals of the procedure. Once Dr. Bared provides you with the computer imaging he will encourage you to communicate what it is that you may or may not like about the imaging. In this manner, Dr. Bared is able to clearly understand your goals for the procedure. Below are a few examples of patients before surgery, with computer imaging and their actual results.
If possible with your travel arrangements, you will also have a second, pre-operative appointment with Dr. Bared. The pre-operative visit is used to further establish the mutual trust that was initiated during the initial consultation as well as giving you the opportunity to review the photos and computer imaging a second time in person and revisit the goals of the procedure. Dr. Bared ensures that there are no questions left unanswered before surgery.
Dr. Bared’s Approach to Rhinoplasty (Nose Job) Procedure
Dr. Bared’s utmost priority is to achieve natural-appearing results in rhinoplasty. He utilizes the most modern techniques in rhinoplasty, which have shown to have long lasting results. Rhinoplasty is considered to be the most challenging of all facial plastic surgery procedures. The inherent challenge of rhinoplasty lies in the anatomical differences in each individual. Dr. Bared tailors each procedure to the patient’s anatomy and skin thickness. He reshapes the nose using one’s own cartilage, avoiding the use of any artificial implants. He does not use artificial implants in the nose to avoid the long term risks associated with implants such as extrusion or infection.
I always wanted to fix my nose but at the same time I was scared of going with the whole process. But Dr. Bared made it so easy and smooth that I recommended it to anyone.
Typically, in primary cases, he uses cartilage from the septum which is the cartilage that divides both sides of the nose. Dr. Bared strategically places cartilage grafts to accomplish support for the nose. Cartilage grafts may be in the form of tip support grafts or grafts which support the bridge of the nose. The purpose of the cartilage grafts are to prevent the compromise of the long term shape and function of the nose. Inevitably after any rhinoplasty procedure, the skin of the nose heals and contracts over time. The contraction of the skin is expected and due to normal healing underneath the skin which transpires after surgery. If the underlying shape of the nose is not adequately supported, then too many variables are left to the healing process—the tip may eventually appear pinched or upturned, the middle part of the bridge may appear overly narrowed, the dorsum may take on an overly scooped appearance, and breathing problems may ensue. These are all telltale signs of a rhinoplasty which Dr. Bared attempts to avoid in his patients. Dr. Bared’s approach is to reshape and refine the patient’s existing anatomy in order to make it more harmonious and in balance with the patient’s overall facial features.

Dr. Bared has been performing facial plastic surgery for years, and he has an excellent reputation for producing top quality results. While your personal procedure may vary slightly from others, it will follow a general set of steps:
Expected Recovery and Results from a Rhinoplasty Procedure with Dr. Bared
The care instructions for your surgery will be detailed so that you know what you need to do for recovery. There is surprisingly little pain associated with the surgery, but rather some discomfort, which patients describe as soreness for the first few days. Dr. Bared provides patients with prescription strength pain medication but most patients are able to take Extra Strength Tylenol within the first few days after surgery. It is very important to avoid taking over the counter anti-inflammatory medications before or after your surgery. You will need to avoid the use of aspirin or ibuprofen for two weeks before and two weeks after surgery. A splint goes over the nose which supports the healing of the nasal bones and helps with the swelling. In most cases, at your one week appointment, the cast and the sutures are all removed. Once your cast and sutures have been removed, Dr. Bared may place tape over the nose for a few days to help with the swelling. As with any surgery there are risks associated with rhinoplasty. Risks specific to rhinoplasty are but are not limited to bleeding, infection, septal perforation (an opening between both sides of the septum on the inside of the nose), and injury to the skin of the nose, scarring, irregularities, nostril asymmetry, nasal asymmetries, and nasal obstruction. A small subset of patient’s may undergo a revision surgery. Initially, it will take a few weeks for swelling to go down and everything to realign. Full exercise is permitted four weeks after surgery. If your bones are reset, you should avoid eyeglasses or sunglasses from resting on the bridge of your nose for six weeks after surgery.
The overall healing is a gradual process, where a degree of swelling in the tip area may persist for 12 months after surgery. The long term refinements made to the nose may not be apparent for this duration. Dr. Bared will explain to you what to expect from your recovery. His great amount of experience with rhinoplasty surgery will allow him to set proper expectations for your recovery. Depending on your skin type, some individuals can expect more swelling than others and a longer period of swelling. For more information on the types of swelling which can be expected after surgery, please read Dr. Bared’s blog. The post-operative visits are very important to the ultimate outcome as during this time Dr. Bared may perform steroid injections or nasal pressure exercises to help with the swelling and refine the results.
