Surgical Instructions

In addition to selecting a Board Certified plastic surgeon, following pre and post operative instructions will help to ensure that your surgery and recovery goes as smoothly as possible. If you have any questions or concerns along the way, please do not hesitate to speak to Dr. Naderi or a member of our staff. It is our personal goal that our patients have a wonderful experience from beginning to end when enhancing the appearance of their nose and that they walk away truly happy. You will be given directions for your surgery, which will include notes on what to do (or not do) before and after surgery.

Before your rhinoplasty, you should check with your primary care physician on whether or not it is safe to discontinue use of certain medications that can cause complications during surgery and recovery. Excess bleeding is a common concern for patients taking select medications and herbal supplements. Patients are advised to drink plenty of water prior to and after rhinoplasty to stay hydrated, but should not eat or drink after midnight before surgery.

After surgery, you must have someone drive you home and stay with you for at least 24 hours. Patients are usually seen the day after surgery, although some may wait to be seen at their one-week appointment. During recovery you will need to keep the nasal area clean using a gentle touch. Cold compresses and elevation of the head will help to minimizes swelling.

If you find yourself in doubt of what to do, call Dr. Naderi’s office. If he is not available, call 911 or go to your closest emergency room in cases of emergency, such as uncontrolled bleeding.

Rhinoplasty Procedures

Dr. Naderi is a rhinoplasty specialist, performing rhinoplasty, revision rhinoplasty, septoplasty, and nasal reconstruction on patients who are dissatisfied with the appearance of their nose or who suffer from breathing problems for a myriad of reasons. Both situations can be distressing and cause a decline in health and confidence. Due to his high-level expertise, Dr. Naderi is able to deliver exceptional results.

Primary Rhinoplasty

When someone is not happy with the appearance of their nose or is experiencing problems with breathing, rhinoplasty may be performed. Rhinoplasty, often called a nose job or nose surgery, requires both technical know-how and a keen aesthetic sense. The nose is one of the most prominent facial features, making it a significant source of unhappiness for patients who feel it is too large, too small, crooked, too wide in the nostrils, etc.

Rhinoplasty is one of the most difficult surgeries to perform since changes in aesthetics can affect function and vice versa. Surgeons who perform rhinoplasty must be extensively trained and have meticulous attention to detail. If not, patients may find themselves in need of a revision rhinoplasty. Dr. Naderi is a specialist in both primary and revision rhinoplasty.

Most rhinoplasty procedures take approximately 1 to 2 hours, although sometimes longer. General anesthesia is typically used. Dr. Naderi has privileges at Virginia’s INOVA system hospitals and performs the surgery at their multiple locations. The technique he uses either entails closed rhinoplasty, where incisions are hidden inside the nose, or open rhinoplasty, where the incision is placed at the base of the nose across the skin separating the nostrils. Bone and cartilage are then sculpted and the skin is re-draped over the new nasal framework. Patients may return to work between one and two weeks after surgery.

Revision Rhinoplasty

Revision rhinoplasty is a secondary procedure designed to correct aesthetic or functional issues following primary nose surgery. The procedure may be more complex than the initial surgery since scar tissue, incorrect placement of tissue, missing tissue, and other prior alterations can pose a challenge.

Candidates for revision rhinoplasty include men and women who are healthy and have realistic expectations for the improvement of their nasal concerns. Dr. Naderi performs these surgeries at INOVA system hospitals in Northern Virginia and Suburban Hospital in Maryland. A revision nose job can take as little as 15 minutes and up to 3 hours, depending on the extent of correction that needs to be made. Very minor revision can be performed with local anesthesia, although most patients undergoing revision rhinoplasty are administered general anesthesia. Most revision cases (about 70%) are “open,” requiring a small discreet incision made on the skin between the nostrils at the base of the nose. Closed rhinoplasty places the incisions inside of the nose.

The national average rate of revision is about 15%. Experienced specialists have a much lower rate, but no one is able to guarantee perfection. There are many factors that can impact the results of a patient’s rhinoplasty, some of which are out of the surgeon’s or patient’s control. Sometimes minor complications occur during healing, leaving the nose in need of a touch-up. Other times the reasons for a revision are for a glaring deformity or functional issue that has occurred. Causes for serious problems or dissatisfaction with the outcome include surgeon error, miscommunication between the surgeon and patient regarding goals for the appearance of the nose, or patient expectations that cannot possibly be met.


Septoplasty restores function of the nasal airway in patients with airway obstruction. Blockage may be due to a deviated septum, enlarged turbinates, narrow internal valve, scar tissue from a previous rhinoplasty surgery, and a variety of other reasons. Local physicians who practice general otolaryngology often send patients with breathing problems that require septoplasty to Dr. Naderi, who is a highly skilled specialist.

In many cases the procedure is performed in combination with cosmetic nasal surgery for patients also seeking a more balanced appearance. This is referred to as septorhinoplasty. There are many benefits of having both surgeries performed at the same time, including the option to use cartilage taken from the septum during septoplasty and applying it to the reshaping of the nose. It also will cut down on a patient’s recovery time.

While most rhinoplasty performed for strictly aesthetic purposes is not covered by insurance, septoplasty typically is since it is performed to improve nasal function. Review other questions and answers about septoplasty or nasal reconstruction for more information.
