Rhinoplasty is a cosmetic procedure that is designed to reshape and contour the nose. It can be done purely for aesthetic reasons or to address functional issues, such as breathing challenges.

Beautifully Refined.Naturally Yours.

A nose that is too large or oddly shaped can detract from your natural beauty and prevent you from breathing with ease. When this occurs, a rhinoplasty with Dr. Kotis can alter its shape and structure – creating a new nose that looks natural and works beautifully.

The Benefits

  • Straighten a crooked nose to create facial symmetry

  • Reduce the width of your nose so that it fits in with your other features

  • Correct nasal bumps and other imperfections

  • Draw attention to other areas of your face, like your eyes and smile

  • Improve your breathing capabilities

  • Fix structural defects, such as a deviated septum

The Procedure

What to expect during your nose job with Dr. Kotis

Dr. Kotis will perform your rhinoplasty under general anesthesia to ensure your comfort and safety. During surgery, he will take an open or closed approach, depending on your needs and goals. Here’s what you need to know about your options:


With the closed rhinoplasty approach, all incisions are made within the nostrils to ensure that scars are completely hidden from view.

This procedure is ideal for small nasal adjustments and can be used to correct issues inside the nose.


The open rhinoplasty requires incisions on the outside of the nose, typically along the tissue separating the nostrils.

This approach allows for increased access to the nasal tissue, so that Dr. Kotis can correct deep structural problems. It’s the ideal approach for patients who need to address both aesthetic and functional issues.

Your Recovery

The duration of your recovery will depend on the extent of the procedure. In general, the closed rhinoplasty heals more quickly than the open approach.

Here’s a quick look at what to expect as you heal from your nose job:

  • Stay home from work for about two weeks

  • Expect swelling and bruising for the first few weeks

  • Avoid sneezing or putting pressure on your nose during the recovery period

Your Results

It’s important to have realistic expectations about your nose job results. Residual swelling and bruising can obstruct your new appearance for the first few weeks after surgery and it can take up to a full year for your nose’s final contours to settle.
