The nose, as a central feature of the face, can make or break the symmetry and balance of your appearance. If there’s an aspect of it that’s over or under exaggerated, it can cause a lot of insecurity and self-consciousness. Dr. David Mashhadian understands how even small changes to your nose can impact your appearance, and has the talent and artistry to sculpt a new nose with uncompromising, natural results.
How Much Does Rhinoplasty Cost?
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average rhinoplasty cost in 2019 was $5,409. Dr. Mashhadian also works with leading medical financing providers to make the decision even easier.
You may think that because Rodeo Surgical Art is in Beverly Hills that it’s very expensive, but Dr. Mashhadian has worked very hard to cultivate a patient schedule that gives him maximum time with each patient while also keeping pricing extremely competitive. After all, he doesn’t want patients weighing investments in themselves against the expense.
If your nose garners too much attention for one feature or another and detracts from the balance of your facial features, call today to see how Dr. Mashhadian can resculpt your nose to a more pleasing, natural appearance.
How Does Rhinoplasty Work?
There are several techniques Dr. Mashhadian uses during a rhinoplasty, commonly called a nose job, to keep your unique and striking features while correcting the concerns you have about your nose’s shape and size. Rhinoplasty can correct the nose’s proportions in relation to other facial features, the width and projection of the bridge, the width of the nostrils, and the shape, projection, and rotation of the tip. Rhinoplasty can also alleviate breathing difficulties caused by injury or deformity of the septum.
A closed rhinoplasty limits the incisions to the inside of the nostrils, which also limits the amount of correction that can be done. This technique is reserved for patients in need of small, detailed revisions. Closed rhinoplasty also leaves no visible scars.
An open rhinoplasty is much more common, as Dr. Mashhadian has more control over the improvements he can make. An incision between the nostrils, in the area known as the columella, opens up a range of techniques to make changes to the shape of your nose. Because the incision is on the underside of your nose, it’s not obvious and usually heals to a pencil-thin line.
Revision rhinoplasty is a complex procedure aimed at correcting previous rhinoplasty results that didn’t live up to expectation. Each case is unique and as such, Dr. Mashhadian will develop the techniques required to fix your nose’s appearance after a thorough examination.
Am I a Good Candidate?
If your nose has features that make you uncomfortable about your appearance, a rhinoplasty may be exactly the corrective procedure for you. Patients who are most satisfied with their results are generally healthy non-smokers who have realistic expectations about what Dr. Mashhadian can correct of your nose. A consultation, where he’ll take measurements and discuss different outcomes, is a great place to begin.
What’s the Procedure Like?
Most patients undergo rhinoplasty under general anesthesia on an outpatient basis. Rodeo Surgical Art’s state-of-the-art surgical suite is where Dr. Mashhadian performs rhinoplasties, and they take between 90 minutes to 3 hours, depending on complexity.

You’ll awaken feeling a bit groggy, so it’s best to have a loved one drive you home. You’ll likely have packing material in your nose, and bandages, and bruising and swelling is perfectly normal.
