Rhinoplasty refers to the surgical enhancement of the nose. Dr. Zuliani specializes in this popular facial plastic surgery procedures, and takes the time with each patient to develop a highly personalized treatment plan. He designs each rhinoplasty surgery specific to each patient–an individualized approach in perfect harmony with his patient’s unique features and facial structure.

Dr. Zuliani does not come up with a standardized treatment plan on the spot.

"I don’t rush patients. I understand this is a big decision and that they need time to decide." - Dr. Zuliani

Dr. Zuliani also has a keen understanding of the differences among patients of different cultural backgrounds. He knows how to treat the face in a way that complements a patient's individuality rather than changing it. His goal is to provide each of his patients with results that are in tune with his or her unique lifestyle, culture, and identity.

Who might benefit from rhinoplasty?

Dr. Zuliani sees men and women considering nose surgery for many different reasons. Oftentimes, patients feel as though their nose distracts from the rest of their facial appearance or calls unwanted attention. As the central-most facial feature, it is not unusual for the slightest imperfection–in the nose’s size, shape, or angle–to make a person feel self-conscious about his or her appearance.

Rhinoplasty can help to:

  • Achieve a more well-balanced size for a patient who is not happy with a nose he or she feels is too big or too small
  • Change the angle at which the nose points
  • Enhance or reduce the size of the nasal bridge
  • Create a more balanced facial appearance

However, while cosmetic concerns are most commonly why men and women come to Dr. Zuliani for rhinoplasty, he is also able to perform this surgery for functional benefits. Rhinoplasty may be performed to improve nasal obstruction or straighten the external or internal structures of the nose (often following an injury).

How is rhinoplasty performed?

Dr. Zuliani believes in a highly individualized approach to rhinoplasty. Before your surgery, photographs will be taken of your nose and face, allowing Dr. Zuliani to plan your operation taking your goals, unique facial structure, and existing nose all into consideration. This allows Dr. Zuliani to achieve results that blend seamlessly with your lifestyle, background, and appearance–creating a more harmonious look.

Rhinoplasty at Zuliani Facial Aesthetics may be performed as an open or closed surgery based on Dr. Zuliani’s professional recommendations as a double board certified facial plastic surgeon. A closed rhinoplasty uses incisions kept completely within the nostrils, allowing patients to minimize the appearance of any post-surgical scars or incision lines. An open rhinoplasty uses incisions made along the base of the nose and may be necessary for more dramatic changes.This nose surgery typically takes about 2-3 hours and will be performed under general anesthesia.

Dr. Zuliani performs all facial plastic surgery procedures at an accredited hospital or surgery center conveniently located near Zuliani Facial Aesthetics in Bloomfield Hills. Once your surgery is complete, Dr. Zuliani will apply the needed dressings and splint to assist with the initial healing process. You should be able to return home shortly after surgery under the care of a loved one.

What can be expected after rhinoplasty?

The recovery process following rhinoplasty will vary from patient to patient. Dr. Zuliani will outline the specific details of the rhinoplasty healing process and provide you with post-surgical care instructions. Most of the dressings will be removed at our Bloomfield Hills office about 5-6 days after your procedure.

You should notice most of the bruising and swelling fade by the end of the first week, but it will still be some time before you see the final outcome of your rhinoplasty. Dr. Zuliani will meet with you at his office several more times over the next year to ensure proper healing and check for progress.

As your nose continues to heal, you will begin to realize the beautiful effects of your surgery. Dr. Zuliani performs rhinoplasty in a way that is subtle enough that people will not notice the changes in your nose, but is dramatic in a way that highlights your best features, accentuating the eyes, and bringing harmony to the overall facial appearance. Feeling like the best version of themselves, many of Dr. Zuliani’s rhinoplasty patients experience a life-changing boost in their self-confidence.
