Nose Surgery (Rhinoplasty)
Your nose anchors your facial features and performs a life-sustaining service. If your face is balanced and symmetrical, your nose goes unnoticed. If air passes through freely, you hardly think about your nose. But if you aren’t breathing well, or if your nose isn’t representing your best self, you may want to take action. Nose surgery, or rhinoplasty, can yield amazing aesthetic and functional results. A photo is worth a 1000 words, click here to see before and after photos.
What Nose Surgery Can Do
Rhinoplasty, sometimes referred to as a “nose job,” can alter the size, shape, and look of your nose to achieve beautiful facial harmony. Changes can be made to the shape of the bridge, the size or position of the tip, or the symmetry of the nostrils. Rhinoplasty can correct a birth defect or repair an old injury. Inside the nose, breathing passages can be cleared or straightened. There are many variables and every rhinoplasty is a very personalized, custom procedure.
As a highly trained and experienced plastic surgeon, Dr. Zachary Filip and Dr. Rachel Ford have changed countless lives through rhinoplasty. Request a consultation now or call (951) 506-1040 to schedule an appointment.

Your doctor wants to be totally prepared and the Renuance team is experienced and caring. They will guide you expertly through the whole process.
Each rhinoplasty is customized, with variations ranging from a minor reshaping to extensive reconstructive procedures. Most surgeries can be done at the AAAASF fully accredited Renuance Surgical Center. A team of expert nurses will support your comfort and ease of mind through the entire experience. Some of us don’t care to dwell on the uncomfortable details, but if you like to do research and want to learn more about the technical side of your procedure, check out a reputable, reliable website such as www.plasticsurgery.org which belongs to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, or www.surgery.org the site of the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons. The information there is medically accurate and much more reliable than personal blogs or web pages.
Most patients report minimal pain during the first few days, rather an uncomfortably stuffy nose. Not everyone has visible bruising around their eyes and not everyone requires nasal packing. A few stitches under your nose come out after a week and most patients feel comfortable returning to work and social activities after 2 weeks. Most swelling is gone at that point but you will continue to see subtle refinements and improved definition over the next few months.
An expertly performed rhinoplasty by Dr. Filip or Dr. Ford costs between $5,000 and $9,000, all-inclusive. Insurance will often reimburse you for reconstructive or medically necessary portions of the procedure. Renuance Cosmetic Surgery Center offers no-interest financing through CareCredit. A Patient Coordinator can explain all of your payment options and help get you approved for financing even before your consultation.
