If your nasal passages are blocked or your nose is bigger than your other facial features, you may be a good candidate for rhinoplasty.

By opening your nasal airways and reshaping your nose, rhinoplasty can help you breathe easier and boost your self-esteem.

See how rhinoplasty from Dr. John F. Zavell in Toledo, OH, can transform your appearance and improve your health.

The Benefits of a Rhinoplasty

A rhinoplasty, also called a nose job, is a procedure where a plastic surgeon alters your cartilage, nasal bones, and other areas of your nose so it is more aesthetically pleasing and easier to breathe through. Some rhinoplasty benefits include: 

A More Balanced Appearance

Your nose is a central feature of your face. If it's crooked or large, your nose can appear disproportionate to your other facial features. Our plastic surgeon can change the size and shape of your nose, altering nasal bones and cartilage in a manner that leaves you with natural-looking results.

Improved Breathing

Rhinoplasty surgery can also improve your breathing by removing any blockage in your nasal airways. Noses that are broken or have a deviated septum can be corrected with rhinoplasty. 

Confidence Boost

A nose that is crooked, large, or otherwise shaped differently than you desire can make you feel self-conscious. By addressing cosmetic and functional nasal issues, rhinoplasty can enhance your looks and boost your confidence. 

Taking Control of Your Appearance

Rhinoplasty at our Toledo practice can address a variety of cosmetic and functional concerns about your nose, including:

  • A nose that is too large or too wide and is not proportional to your other facial features
  • A noticeable bump on your nasal bridge that gives your nose an undesirable appearance
  • Nostrils that are wide and stand out compared to the rest of your nose
  • An over-projected or under-projected nasal tip
  • A nose that is off-center or crooked because of an injury

No matter your reason for nasal surgery, Dr. Zavell can change nearly any cosmetic concern with your nose.

What to Expect During Your Plastic Surgery 

After checking your candidacy and your cosmetic goals, Dr. Zavell will schedule your rhinoplasty procedure at his Toledo office. Every patient and nose is unique, so every nose surgery will be slightly different. In general, patients can expect their rhinoplasty to include:
Dr. Zavell prefers to perform open rhinoplasty, which better allows him to achieve the specific results you desire. 
Dr. Zavell prefers to perform open rhinoplasty, which better allows him to achieve the specific results you desire. 


Before your procedure begins, we will administer either general or IV sedation to keep you comfortable throughout your surgery. 


Dr. Zavell prefers to make incisions between the nostrils on the underside of the nose, called an open rhinoplasty. This method provides your plastic surgeon with better access to the cartilage and bones, allowing him to be more specific with adjustments and achieve your desired results. 

Precise Alterations

After making gentle incisions, Dr. Zavell will have access to the nasal area and cartilage. He will reshape cartilage, bones, and other parts of the nasal area to give your nose a flattering look. Anything obstructing your nasal passageways can be altered or removed, improving your breathing. 

Finishing Touches

After making alterations to your nose, our surgeon will use sutures to close the incisions. Bandages and a splint will be applied to your nose while it heals. Patients typically wear a bandage for a week and a splint for one to two weeks. 
 Dr. Zavell will give you detailed instructions on what to expect during the healing process. If you have any complications or abnormal side effects after your procedure, contact his Toledo office immediately. 

Paying for a Rhinoplasty

Factors like the amount of nasal tissue and cartilage that needs to be altered or removed will determine the cost of your rhinoplasty. If you need surgery to improve your breathing, your medical insurance may cover part of the procedure. 

Our Toledo office offers financing through Directions Credit Union, M-lend Financial, and CareCredit®, enabling patients to pay for treatment in monthly installments. Our staff will be happy to help you decide which financing plan is best for you and your budget. 

The benefits of rhinoplasty from an expert surgeon like Dr. Zavell more than make up for the cost, giving you a more balanced appearance and improving your breathing.
