What is Rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty is an aesthetic treatment that enhances the shape and size of the nose. It can help repair a functional or breathing issue in many patients. Our Boston, MA doctors have years of experience helping patients with delicate facial surgeries, especially rhinoplasty. Both of our doctors have a conservative approach, which helps create soft and natural results. Even though rhinoplasty consists of delicate changes, patients usually see dramatic results. Cosmetic nose surgery at DeRosa Center Facial Aesthetics is performed to make a nose appear smaller in size or change a misshapen nose, one that protrudes out, is too large or wide, or has a bump on top. The goal is to produce a more aesthetically appealing nose that meets your cosmetic desires and functions as it should.

"Dr. DeRosa did a perfect job on my rhinoplasty. I saw age and gravity were accentuating the bulbous tip and drawing down my profile when smiling. Jaimie clearly heard and saw the issue, expressed her vision, and performed professionally to give me the best result. I am very pleased. It looks great and just like the computer image initially projected. Moreover, she is very tuned in and caring. She is a lovely, highly trained, artistic, and perfectionistic. The facility was topnotch. I consulted with my doctor friends, even another top Rhinoplasty guy in Brookline, and I chose Dr. DeRosa based upon my research which highlighted her training/skills, communication, and followup care. Her staff is great. She consistently has the same topnotch anesthesiologist. I was made to feel comfortable. My result is just what I wanted. I would not hesitate to recommend her for any cosmetic procedure."- J.M. / Yelp / Dec 13, 2020
"Dr. DeRosa did a rhinoplasty on me, a woman of 62, to address a bulbous tip that angled down. She did a spectacular job. She is also one of the warmest most personable surgeons one could want. She explained the procedure and did excellent follow up in her comprehensive, modern office/facility on Newbury Street in Boston. Her whole staff, including the anesthesiologist was informative and supportive. I highly recommend her perfectionist skills at plastic surgery."- J.B. / Healthgrades / Dec 13, 2020
"When I was 18 years old I broke my nose. I never did anything about it at the time Because it never really look that bad. As I got older it started looking worse to me my bridge looked really flat and it seem like the bones were wider possibly just the aging process. When I really noticed was in pictures and it really bothered me and I was constantly trying to contour my nose to make it look narrow. Most people didn't even notice but it really bothered me. I finally decided to get an opinion on what it would entail to fix it. I went to three different plastic surgeons. I finally decided on Jaime DeRosa at the Derosa clinic in Boston. Right away after consulting with her I knew she was the right surgeon. She has such an amazing personality and she is a double certified facial plastic surgeon. I just knew I was in good hands. I had the procedure done yesterday and I am feeling great today I was even able to walk the dogs early this morning at 6:30 AM. Her husband is the anesthesiologist and they both made me feel so relaxed and comfortable before and after the procedure. I couldn't have asked for a better pair!"- NC / Other / Apr 02, 2021

My nose fits my face perfectly and I still look just like me! I am only a month out and love my results. I cannot recommend her enough!"- C.B. / Google / May 14, 2021
Who is a candidate for Rhinoplasty?
As one of our top surgeries, both men and women can receive rhinoplasty. If you find yourself frustrated with the size and shape of your nose and you have specific features you wish to enhance or repair, rhinoplasty is usually a good solution. You should maintain realistic expectations because the surgery will alter your appearance. Also, we recommend making sure your facial growth and maturity is complete. During your consultation, we will address this aspect, especially for adolescents.
How does RHINOPLASTY surgery work?
Cosmetic nose surgery is performed while the patient is under IV sedation or general anesthesia and is in most cases an outpatient surgery. Rhinoplasty has varying surgical techniques, depending on your aesthetic goals and concerns. We perform rhinoplasty using either an open or closed technique. The objective during surgery is to reduce excess bone, cartilage, and tissue, or to build and increase cartilage if necessary for reconstruction. During the surgery, we reposition nasal features and drape the skin over the newly enhanced framework. We position stitches either on top of the nose or within the natural external crease.
Is Rhinoplasty right For me?
After your cosmetic nose surgery, we will monitor you closely in the recovery room and then release you to a friend or family member. For the first couple of days, you will have intense swelling, bruising, and discoloration around the nose and surrounding areas, like the eyes. Ice packs and prescription medication can assist with these effects. Within the first several days, we will schedule a post-operative appointment to assess your healing progress. Following rhinoplasty, it generally takes about 2 – 4 weeks to see reduced swelling, bruising, and discoloration. Within the recovery phase, patients should avoid strenuous activity.
How much does rhinoplasty cost?
The cost of nose reshaping surgery varies based on the technique used and the complexity of the procedure. Before estimating costs, we will listen to your needs and goals, then create a custom treatment plan. After creating your plan, we can go over costs for the facility, anesthesia, and more. For your best results, it's better to focus on selecting an experienced surgeon instead of the lowest cost. To help make your surgery easier to afford, DeRosa Center Facial Aesthetics accepts several payment methods, and we can help you find low-interest medical financing.
Are there nonsurgical options to change my nose?
If you want to smooth lumps and bumps on your nose, a hyaluronic acid-based wrinkle filler (like Juvéderm or Restylane) might be an option. A filler can temporarily improve minor imperfections on your nose, which can help you decide if you want to get rhinoplasty. Nose surgery is better for larger changes, long-lasting results, and to adjust the internal structure for better function. At your consultation, we will tell you more about nonsurgical nose reshaping.
What about ethnic rhinoplasty?
Ethnic rhinoplasty focuses on improving the appearance of the nose while still maintaining your cultural identity. This is often a concern if you are Asian, African-American, or Middle Eastern. During your consultation with us, please discuss what nasal features you like and dislike. This will allow us to customize your treatment plan so you get the best results.
Can I combine nose surgery with other facial surgeries?
Some patients consider combining rhinoplasty with another procedure, like cheek or chin augmentation. For dramatic results, we can discuss combining surgeries during your consultation. Once we understand your goals, we can help you decide what procedures to include in your custom plan. Nose reshaping surgery can help make your whole face appear more balanced so you should wait to see your results before considering another procedure.
Plan Your Procedure
Feel great about your facial features
