Your nose is one of the most prominent features on your face, and it has a powerful effect on the way you look overall. If your nose doesn’t quite feel like you, bring your ideal look to life with rhinoplasty (also called a “nose job”), available at our Charlotte, NC, facial plastic surgery practice.
Dual board-certified facial plastic surgeons Dr. Andrea Garcia and Dr. Joshua Surowitz consider rhinoplasty an important, thought-out procedure a person can choose to elevate their facial appearance. Masterfully performed rhinoplasty brings harmony to all of your features without sacrificing the unique character of your nose. It lets our patients from the Lake Norman area such as Cornelius, Huntersville, and Davidson; Lake Wylie communities including Tega Cay and India Hook; Belmont; Indian Trail; and other nearby cities put their best face forward to the world with total confidence.

What Is Rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure that can improve both the form and function of the nose. While our surgeons customize each procedure, some of the most common components include:
- Lifting a drooping tip
- Narrowing or straightening the bridge
- Removing nasal humps or bumps
- Reshaping an enlarged or bulbous tip
- Correcting breathing issues
Because there is no “ideal nose,” our surgeons tailor each nose surgery to optimize the angles and proportions of the nose in relation to the forehead, ears, eyes, and mouth.
Who Is a Candidate for Rhinoplasty?
The ideal rhinoplasty candidate is someone who is in generally good health and has realistic expectations for their surgical outcome.
In addition to aesthetic concerns, our doctors are also trained to correct functional issues, such as breathing problems. People with a deviated septum may pursue nose surgery for this reason. In many cases, an internal problem with the septum may also have an impact on the visible shape of the nose.

What Is the Difference Between Open and Closed Rhinoplasty?
Your surgeon may recommend either an open or closed rhinoplasty, depending on your needs:
- Open rhinoplasty: This approach uses a small incision on the columella (the strip of tissue between your nostrils) to provide better access to your nose’s structures. This creates a very small, thin, and barely visible scar on the underside of your nose.
- Closed rhinoplasty: This “scarless” rhinoplasty uses incisions hidden inside the nostrils.
Dr. Garcia and Dr. Surowitz will discuss the benefits of each approach with you and recommend the best option during your in-depth consultation.
What Is Rhinoplasty Recovery Like?
Most people return to work or school within 1 to 2 weeks following rhinoplasty. You will likely experience some swelling and bruising, most of which subsides within the first 6 weeks. You will need to avoid more strenuous physical activities for 4 to 6 weeks as your nose heals.
It may take between 6 months and a year for all remaining swelling to subside and for your final results to take shape.
