"In considering plastic surgery, I consulted many doctors for rhinoplasty and breast augmentation. The most difficult task was to find a doctor that had expertise in both areas (especially with an "ethnic nose"). Many doctors had an impressive background and years of experience. Getting different opinions, doing my share of research in both procedures and previous patient reviews are what helped me make my final decision. During the initial consultation, Dr. Corbin did not come across as the most charming person. He was frank and to the point. On the other hand, his staff was very accommodating and warm. After selecting him as my surgeon the staff helped me through the whole process- from getting lab work done to post surgery care information. They made me feel comfortable and safe throughout. The recovery was a lot better than I expected! Especially with my rhinoplasty- I had some swelling but no bruising. The results were natural looking but an obvious improvement. I'm very glad I went with Dr. Corbin for my procedures!"- G.A. / Yelp / Aug 15, 2013

Who Should Have Rhinoplasty?
Adults and teenagers over 16 years of age are candidates for rhinoplasty. If you're unhappy with the appearance of your nose and have areas you hope to improve, enhance, or correct, this surgery may be the ideal course of action. It's very important to maintain realistic expectations, as your nose and facial profile will change. Furthermore, facial growth should also be complete. This factor will be discussed during your consultation, especially for patients under 21.
Rhinoplasty is performed with patients under sedation, such as general anesthesia, and is usually an outpatient surgery. Rhinoplasty can use various surgical methods, depending on your concerns and problems. Dr. Corbin performs nose surgery with either an open or closed technique. The goal during surgery is to reduce excess cartilage, tissue, and bone or to improve and add cartilage if needed for reshaping. The nasal features are repositioned and the skin is draped over the newly enhanced framework. Stitches are positioned either on the inside portion of the nose or along the natural external crease.
What to Expect after Rhinoplasty
Upon completion of your nose surgery, you'll rest comfortably in our recovery area, and then we'll release you to heal at home. The area around your nose will likely be swollen, bruised, and sore for a week or so. In most cases, there is bruising and discoloration beneath the eyes in addition to the nose. Ice packs and pain medication can help with these effects. Your post-operative appointment with Dr. Corbin will be scheduled within a couple of days after surgery to assess your healing progress. On average, it takes around 2 – 4 weeks to look normal following nose surgery. During the healing process, strenuous activity should be avoided.
Your Best Nose
Rhinoplasty may be a great option to improve your nose shape and facial profile. If you're dissatisfied with the look of your nose or if you have breathing problems, rhinoplasty may help. Rhinoplasty is a very common cosmetic treatment with very high success rates. Dr. Corbin aims to improve your nose so that your entire face looks more proportionate and attractive. Even minor tweaks can make a huge difference. We invite you to get in touch with our office in Brea or Beverly Hills, CA to schedule a consultation.
