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.
"Look no further! Experience: Dr. Charvet and his staff are amazing!! I had a tummy tuck with lipo to flanks and abs on November 18th. Dr. Charvet gave his cell number so I was able to contact him with any post-op concerns...on a holiday! Surgery is scary and being able to have access to my surgeon when needed made the recovery process 100 times easier. His staff are all so kind and caring. Ashley made me feel incredibly comfortable with personal "female" post-op concerns. Everyone is so welcoming and Dr. Charvet's bedside manner is the best I've ever seen. Results: I can’t express enough how happy I am with my results! I went from hating my body and depressed to look in the mirror to loving myself again. This surgery is game changing. Just do it! Have the surgery!!! 10 out of 10 recommend!"- G.C. / Google / Jan 04, 2023
"When I was ready to have my partial mommy make over I had visited and researched many practices and as soon as I met Dr Charvette and the staff at Magnolia I knew I was done looking immediately. Their bedside manner is outstanding and they made me feel comfortable from the time I reached out to book a consultation, through surgery day, and now with my post op follow up appointments. I had a breast lift and my results are beautiful! Recovery was easy, they set me up for success prior to surgery answering questions and providing suggestions of what would assist me the best after surgery. I was up and about the day after surgery with very little discomfort. Now I’m three months out and couldn’t be happier. I also got Botox in my forehead and brow just to round out the refreshed look that I had in mind for myself. I wish I had reached out to Magnolia plastic surgery and medspa earlier. I recommend them to anyone who asks who I went to for my procedures. I will most definitely continue to visit them for injectable’s and medspa services, as well as any other surgical procedures I may want in a few years."- C.S. / Google / Oct 20, 2022

"Great experience and overall care. Dr. Charvet and his staff have continued to exceed my expectations. He has an excellent bedside manner, is very thorough in explaining what he will be doing and takes his time to answer any questions or concerns you may have. I’m very pleased with my results so far and would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a thoughtful, considerate and knowledgeable plastic surgeon."- J.C. / Google / Aug 03, 2022
"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
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.
