Rhinoplasty, also called a nose job, is one of the most sought-after plastic surgeries and can have a dramatic effect on your look and quality of life.

Renaissance Plastic Surgery’s board-certified facial plastic surgeon is proud to offer rhinoplasty to patients in the Detroit Metropolitan area for the correction of functional and cosmetic issues with the nose.

What Is Rhinoplasty?

This facial plastic surgery procedure alters the structure and tissue of the nose to resolve aesthetic and/or medical issues.  When this procedure is specifically performed for cosmetic reasons, such as to enhance the size, shape, and proportions of the nose, it is called plastic surgery rhinoplasty. When it is being done to correct breathing difficulties, the surgery is known as functional rhinoplasty.

Your Rhinoplasty Consultation

During your consultation, your surgeon will ask you about your cosmetic and/or functional goals for rhinoplasty. He will also tell you about the procedure in great detail, focusing on aspects such as preparation and the healing process. Feel free to ask any questions you may have.

Your surgeon will examine your face and your features, developing an in-depth understanding of proportions and nasal structure. He will also go over your medical history to ensure a safe operation. A surgical plan will then be created.

Ethnic Rhinoplasty

Many surgeons perform a “one-size-fits-all” rhinoplasty without any regard for cultural features, always creating a Western nose regardless of ethnic background. Ethnic rhinoplasty is a type of rhinoplasty performed to improve the nose’s appearance while also ensuring that patients’ cultural features are preserved. Our surgeons possess the understanding and experience needed to effectively perform ethnic rhinoplasty for patients of all backgrounds.


When the dividing structure of the nasal cavity, called the nasal septum, is crooked, this condition is called a deviated septum. It can sometimes be congenital, it may come about as a result of nasal trauma, or it may occur due to the aging process.

A deviated septum causes one nasal passage to be much smaller than the other, leading to obstructed breathing. Sometimes, pain and nosebleeds can also occur.

A deviated septum can be corrected with the help of septoplasty surgery. This form of functional rhinoplasty repositions aspects of the septum and may involve removal of septal cartilage or bone when necessary. After all healing is complete, proper airflow is restored.

Turbinate Reduction

The nasal turbinates are structures located inside of the nasal passages. These small structures are made of bone and are protected by mucous membranes. They naturally swell in order to filter out germs, and they serve to heat the air that we breathe in before it travels to our lungs.

When the turbinates become overly swollen or inflamed, this can cause issues like obstruction of breathing, snoring, nosebleeds, and sinus infections.

With turbinate reduction, or turbinoplasty, these issues can be corrected, improving quality of life. This procedure can surgically remove bone from the turbinates, reducing them in size, resulting in a clearer nasal passage. Changes will be noticeable in around six weeks.

Revision Rhinoplasty

After a primary rhinoplasty procedure from another surgeon, patients are sometimes unhappy with their results. To correct their results, they may visit our surgeons for revision rhinoplasty surgery, also known as secondary rhinoplasty.

Sometimes, revision rhinoplasty is performed for treating new breathing difficulties that were created by the primary rhinoplasty procedure. In other cases, it is done to address aesthetic issues.

Your Rhinoplasty Procedure

Rhinoplasty is typically performed under general anesthesia. Two types of incisions may be used during a nose job:

Closed Rhinoplasty

This is the most common type of rhinoplasty. The incisions are made inside the nostrils so that there are no external marks. This technique offers many benefits, including reduced nasal tissue irritation, a reduced chance of post-operative edema, a smaller chance of nasal tip support reduction, and a faster recovery.

Open Rhinoplasty

This procedure is recommended for patients who need to have extensive work done on their noses. It is best suited for when the patient needs revision surgery or considerable grafting. In open rhinoplasty, the surgeon makes an external incision between the nostrils, on the area of tissue known as the columella. The skin is then lifted, giving the surgeon increased visibility of and access to the nasal bones and cartilage.

After incisions have been made, the nasal structure is altered through changes in soft tissue, bone, and/or cartilage. Finally, incisions are closed using tiny sutures.

Recovery After Rhinoplasty

The details of the recovery process and exact time needed will depend on the extent of the procedure and patient-specific factors. Following the surgeon’s post-surgical instructions is the best way to speed up recovery.

In most cases, patients are advised to rest for the first week or two. This is the phase where the patient will most likely be wearing a splint to support the nose. It is especially important to keep the head elevated during rhinoplasty recovery.
During the recovery period, the patient is given medications to manage discomfort. They can use a cold compress for swelling reduction.

Most patients can return to work after a week or two, depending on how quickly the recovery process is progressing. Strenuous activities must be avoided for at least three to six weeks after surgery to allow for expedient and complete healing.

The Cost of Rhinoplasty

When determining the price of a rhinoplasty procedure, a number of factors are considered. The techniques utilized, anesthesia fees, and total surgical time may all play a role in rhinoplasty’s overall cost. Functional rhinoplasty is often covered by health insurance. Plastic Surgery rhinoplasty, on the other hand, is not covered.

Patient Testimonials

This was the best decision I have ever made. I met with Dr. Stefani and hired him & received a full mommy makeover. I had met with several doctors as well, as this was a big decision to make. Dr. Stefani made me feel the most comfortable and he has a great bedside manner. Also, to be completely honest after surgery …He exceeded my expectations. I almost cried after I saw what I looked like after surgery. I had 3 c sections prior and nothing was ever the same after that. I feel better than I did before kids and I wish I did this sooner. If you are even slightly hesitant …don’t be! Dr. Stefani is AMAZING.

Dr. Williams is one of the most caring and talented doctors I have ever met! I was diagnosed with breast CA 2 years ago and was referred to him for reconstruction after choosing to do a bilateral mastectomy. Boy was I scared !! He put me at ease right away with great information on what to expect along and seemed to generally care about me even though we had just met! I knew I was in the best hands! Now after 2 years, not to sound weird, I get compliments on my "new" breasts all the time, even my family Dr gave them a big WOW! Cherry on top, he did a Tummy tuck on me to even out new look, and also get compliments all the time!

Dr. Miguel is the absolute best!! I've had rhinoplasty in the past with another surgeon, and I came in for a consultation with Dr. Miguel for an alar base reduction (narrowing of nostrils). He was so honest with his answer, and he told me it was not needed. He said the procedure was unnecessary, and to leave my nose just the way it is. He told me all the things that could go wrong if I were to go forward with this procedure. I am so grateful for his honesty, and I appreciate his conservative approach. If you are looking for a rhinoplasty surgeon and want honest feedback with natural results, please consult with Dr. Miguel.
