Cosmetic nose surgery (rhinoplasty) is an aesthetic procedure performed to improve the look and shape of the nose. In addition, rhinoplasty can help correct the nose's functionality in some patients. La Jolla, CA plastic surgeon Dr. Mark Schoemann is a seasoned cosmetic face and nose surgeon who offers rhinoplasty, taking a subtle approach to produce the most beautiful and natural-looking outcomes. While rhinoplasty consists of slight changes, results usually are beautiful and dramatic. Rhinoplasty at Schoemann Plastic Surgery is used to make a nose look smaller or enhance a nose that is misshapen, protrudes out, is too large or wide, or has a bump on top. The goal is to produce a more aesthetically pleasing nose that meets your goals and functions as it should.
Women and men both are candidates for rhinoplasty. If you're displeased with the overall look of your nose and have specific concerns you wish to enhance or repair, this surgery may be the answer. It is important that realistic expectations are discussed, as your appearance will be changed. In addition, facial maturity should also be complete. This factor will be discussed during your consultation, especially for individuals under 21.
"My Husband recently had a surf accident that broke his Jaw. Dr. Schoemann was our saving grace. He made him self available that night in the ER to meet with us and discuss the surgery. He was able to get surgery done the next day. He was available by phone to answer any questions prior to surgery. He did an amazing job on the surgery and gave us such piece of mind putting us at ease through out the whole process. Every follow up visit has been incredible with not only with amazing care but his office is so friendly and on-time. We never feel rushed we have time to think and ask questions. We feel so fortunate to have had him in our time of emergency. We wanted to let everyone how incredible he is with face and jaw repair."- P.S. / Yelp / Apr 25, 2018

Cosmetic nose surgery is performed with the patient under IV sedation or general anesthesia, and is considered an outpatient surgical procedure. Rhinoplasty has varying surgical techniques depending on the unique cosmetic goals of the patient. Dr. Schoemann performs nose surgery with either a closed approach or an open method. The goal during surgery is to remove excess tissue and cartilage, or to improve and add cartilage if needed for reshaping. The nose is repositioned while the skin is reformed and draped over the newly enhanced framework. Sutures are placed either inside the nose or in the natural external crease.
What to Expect
After your nose surgery, you will be monitored closely in our recovery suite, and then be released to heal at home. The area around the nose will be very swollen and bruised for a week or so. In most cases, there is bruising under the eyes as well. Cold compresses and prescription medication can help with these effects. Your post-operative appointment with Dr. Schoemann will take place within 48 – 72 hours following surgery to check your healing process. On average, it takes about 2 – 4 weeks to heal from rhinoplasty. During this process, strenuous activity or exercise should be avoided.
