Rhinoplasty in Dallas
How long have you wished for a perfectly shaped nose? Are you bothered by the way your nose tends to pull down when you smile or by the width of its base? Do you have trouble breathing through your nose? At Dallas Surgical Arts, our team is trained and prepared to provide you with the nose of your dreams, one that will not only transform your appearance, but also impact your life, boosting your confidence and improving your overall well-being.
In Expert Hands
Board-certified in both facial cosmetic surgery and oral and maxillofacial surgery, Dr. Sanovich has had more advanced training in the maxillofacial areas than most doctors. In addition to extensive education related to the face, mouth, teeth, and jaw, Dr. Sanovich’s daily in-office experience ensures a proficiency in surgical procedures involving the skin, muscle, bone, and cartilage of the facial region as well as his first-hand knowledge of the function and aesthetics of the face.
Reasons for Rhinoplasty
As you consider your goals, ask yourself which features of your nose bother you and the changes you’d like to its size, width, and length. These details will help Dr. Sanovich as, together, you establish desired and realistic goals regarding your treatment, your recovery, and your outcome. You may benefit from rhinoplasty if you are unhappy with:
- A hump on the bridge of your nose
- A wide nose
- An excessively large nose
- The round, bulbous tip of your nose
- The way in which the tip of your nose pulls down when you smile
- A lack of facial asymmetry
- Your nasal tip being too high
- The width of the base of your nose
The True You
Our goal is not cookie-cutter results. Instead, we strive to maintain your distinct look while working with your existing bone structure and facial anatomy to sculpt the most balanced and proportional appearance possible. Consider the following questions:
- Do you want to maintain a particular family trait in regard to your face?
- Does your ideal nose harmonize with the rest of your face?
- Are you considering the profile view of your ideal nose in addition to the frontal and angled side views?
- Does the nose you have in mind fit your personality?

What to Expect
Rhinoplasty is usually performed under light general anesthesia and local anesthesia in our outpatient surgical suite. As the nose is reshaped, some bone or cartilage may be removed. To ensure optimal results, Dr. Sanovich takes extra time to meticulously place fine stitches, removing as little cartilage as possible and grafting cartilage into weak areas. We have found that our surgeon’s keen eye for detail and determination to go above and beyond the standard surgical protocol translates into shorter recovery time and better overall results for the patient.
Once surgery is complete, a splint is applied over the bridge of the nose to maintain the desired form. Within five or six days, the splint and the stitches on the outside of the nose will be removed. Patients usually have very little discomfort after surgery. If you experience mild swelling, bruising, or stuffiness of the nose, nasal decongestant sprays and cold packs can help to maintain a satisfactory airway and minimize swelling. Most patients can resume normal activities within three to six days. Strenuous activities should be curtailed for two to three weeks.
