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. To learn more about rhinoplasty, contact our New Orleans, LA office to schedule your consultation.
"Dr Charvet is the best! Very knowledgeable and makes you feel super comfortable. I struggle with Rosacea and he recommended a compound gel that they just started carrying. This stuff is amazing!!! It’s called Aveidaoxia Gel .I saw a difference after one use. It has been a life saver! He’s the best with Botox and fillers too. I haven’t experienced bruising at all! All of his office staff is friendly and helpful. It is always a fun and pleasant experience when I go. He also has one of the best aestheticians there on Thursday’s. Her name is Christy Hoerner. Don’t hesitate…book your consultation! You will not be disappointed!"- S.C. / Google / Oct 19, 2023

"My experience with Dr Heath Charvet and Magnolia Plastic Surgery and Medspa was A+ across the board. I am a male and was a bit apprehensive about plastic surgery in general. Ashley and the staff were very welcoming and immediately put me at ease during my initial consultation. I was interested in liposuction and Dr Heath explained the procedure in detail and gave me honest information about what I could expect. His wife Lisa is the anesthesiologist and their vast knowledge of anesthesia combined with the way it was explained to me, made me very comfortable. I was nervous about the anesthesia part, but I felt I was in great hands with Lisa. The fact that my surgery was done at the office in their surgical suite was another bonus. The atmosphere in the office is very relaxed and differs greatly from that of a hospital. It has been 3 months since my surgery and the results of Dr Heath’s work exceeded my expectations. I got exactly what I hoped for. Dr Heath also recommended Mounjaro (tirzepatide) injections after my surgery to help increase my weight loss. I am currently down 26 pounds from my initial consultation. Dr. Heath is a masterful surgeon and a great communicator. His staff is professional, but very welcoming and kind. The experience for me was life changing. You won’t be disappointed with Dr. Heath and his staff. Highly recommended!"- T.M. / Google / Sep 15, 2023
"Every visit from consultation and pre surgery through post operative care the entire team is top notch!!! I ABSOLUTELY LOVE MY NEW BREAST!!"- S.S. / Google / Sep 08, 2023
"I am so happy that I followed a Facebook recommendation to receive a consultation with Dr. Charvet and his staff. I met with 3 other surgeons. None of them made me feel the way Dr. Charvet and Dominique did. I really felt that Dr. Charvet was confident in his work, yet realistic about how my results would be. I decided to schedule my Mommy Makeover with them. This was my first ever cosmetic procedure. Six weeks later, I am very pleased with the way it is coming together. I feel much happier when I look in the mirror. Each follow up visit with Dr. Charvet is good! He really knows what he’s doing! Highly recommend Magnolia to anyone who wants to feel like a new woman.

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.
