Rhinoplasty is considered by many facial plastic surgeons, in Chicago and abroad, to be one of the most difficult cosmetic procedures to conduct. In Chicago, rhinoplasty is performed by a handful of trained facial plastic surgeons who have specifically studied both otolaryngology and facial plastic surgery in order to ensure that both your aesthetic concerns and anatomic functionality are looked after.
Based on certain fundamental principles of beauty, Dr. Dayan approaches rhinoplasty in a way that focuses attention toward the eyes to help increase your level of attractiveness. Dr. Dayan is an expert in the science of beauty and shares his understanding of beauty through his undergraduate course at DePaul University titled, “The Science of Beauty, Attraction, and Its Impact on Culture and Business.” He has an in-depth understanding and appreciation for the subtle changes in a face that can lead to improving the first impression and level of attractiveness one exhibits.

Depending on the type of rhinoplasty the patient receives, small, well-hidden incisions are made inside of the nose. Cartilage and bone are then refined to create a smoother aesthetic. For those affected by a deviated septum (a condition where the bone or cartilage is actually obstructing the nasal cavity), Dr. Dayan may perform a septoplasty. During this procedure, cartilage or bone may be removed from the nose. Some patients have reported that this procedure actually improved their breathing.
Depending on the specific case, the nasal splint is removed approximately one week after surgery. Many patients begin to see results within 2-4 weeks. Discomfort is typically minimal; however, pain medication is available as necessary. After surgery, sun exposure and pressure on the nose is discouraged.
