What is Rhinoplasty?
Cosmetic nose surgery (rhinoplasty) is an aesthetic treatment performed to enhance the look and shape of the nose. In some cases, it can even help correct functionality in many patients. Plastic surgeon Dr. Heath Charvet is a seasoned plastic surgeon who performs rhinoplasty, taking a conservative approach to produce soft and natural outcomes. While rhinoplasty consists of slight changes, results tend to be quite dramatic. Cosmetic nose surgery at Magnolia Plastic Surgery and MedSpa can be recommended to make a nose look smaller in size or alter a nose that is too large or wide. The objective is to allow for a more aesthetically appealing nose that meets your cosmetic desires and functions well.

"Couldn’t be more pleased with my results so far! Dr Charvet took the time to consult with me about what I wanted and gave me exactly that. I had a Mommy makeover (lipo, tummy tuck with muscle repair, fat transfer to breasts and hips) This experience has been nothing short of amazing. I’ve regained my confidence and my core strength! Since surgery, I’ve been back for laser hair removal, Botox and lip filler. The staff and Dr Charvet care about their patients and are always available to answer any questions. I’d 100% do it all over again and will be a repeat patient for any future procedures."- R.J. / Google / Jun 22, 2022

You don’t just feel like this is a place of business but feel like it is an extension of your family and friendship Circle. Aside from my mommy makeover I also received medspa Services which were also excellent. I highly recommend to anyone and everyone !"- A.S. / Google / Jun 22, 2022
"Went in today for laser hair removal for my first time ever and I couldn’t have chosen a better place. Maiya the gorgeous esthetician here took the best care of me. It is more then obvious she loves what she does and is so very skilled in it. I went in for one area of my body and ended up doing almost my entire body. The quality of care here is unlike any medspa I’ve ever visited. If your thinking about visiting, this is your sign to schedule your appointment. 10/10 Atmosphere and Service!"- I.R. / Google / May 11, 2022
"I recently had the Cool Peel Laser treatment done and I am very pleased with the results. Unlike past laser procedures, the Cool Peel has less downtime with better results. My fine lines and acne scarring have significantly improved. Dr. Charvet was VERY informative before, during and post procedure which was very comforting. I would highly recommend Magnolia Plastic Surgery & Med Spa for all of my cosmetic needs!"- L.G. / Google / May 05, 2022
How is Rhinoplasty Performed?
Rhinoplasty is performed while you are under general anesthesia, and in most cases, it is an outpatient procedure. Dr. Charvet performs nose surgery with either a closed approach or an open method; he will choose the correct method based on your desired outcome. The objective during treatment is to remove excess cartilage, tissue, and bone, or to build and increase cartilage if needed for reshaping. The nose is repositioned while the skin is draped over the newly enhanced framework. Sutures are placed either inside your nose or within the natural external crease. Following your rhinoplasty, we will have you rest comfortably in the recovery suite before you're released to heal at home. Your nose and the surrounding area will be bruised and swollen for a few days, and you may have bruising and discoloration beneath your eyes as well. Cold compresses and pain medication can assist with these effects. Your post-operative appointment with Dr. Charvet will be scheduled within a few days following surgery to check your healing progress. On average, it takes 2 – 4 weeks to look normal following nose surgery. Within this recovery phase, strenuous activity or exercise should be avoided.
