How Can Preservation Rhinoplasty Provide Superior Results?

Do you want to have plastic surgery to change the shape or size of your nose? Preservation rhinoplasty is an option worth considering if this is your first time getting a nose job. When compared with the outcomes of conventional rhinoplasty, this modern cosmetic treatment has the potential to provide superior results.

Preservation Rhinoplasty Results are Natural-Looking and Refined

Traditional rhinoplasty can produce a more polished, natural-looking appearance than preservation rhinoplasty. This is because conventional surgical treatments remove bone and cartilage from the top of the nose, potentially altering the dorsal lines. Instead, preservation rhinoplasty involves the removal of bone and cartilage from beneath the nose to ensure that dorsal lines stay unaltered for a less-operated-on appearance.

There is Less of a Risk You Will End Up with Breathing Problems

As bone and cartilage are removed during conventional rhinoplasty, several nasal structures that maintain respiratory function may be compromised or injured. Because of this, you might require a second rhinoplasty procedure to fix the damage. With a preservation rhinoplasty, vital support structures are left untouched to reduce the risk of complications and mitigate the risks to the patient’s breathing.

Preservation Rhinoplasty Recovery Time is Shorter

In contrast to conventional rhinoplasty, incisions used through preservation rhinoplasty are hidden inside the natural contours of the nose. Potential bruising and swelling can be reduced by this method since the lymphatics and blood capillaries crucial for healing and circulation are kept unharmed. Due to this, recuperation time is reduced, and the risk of problems is decreased compared to the standard rhinoplasty procedure. It often takes about a week for patients to feel back to normal after the surgery.

Only the Most Experienced Plastic Surgeons Offer Preservation Rhinoplasty

Plastic surgeons rank rhinoplasty as the most challenging procedure in the field of cosmetic surgery. Some surgeons find the learning curve for closed rhinoplasty (preservation rhinoplasty) much steeper than that of open rhinoplasty. Only a tiny group of rhinoplasty doctors in the United States, including Dr. Maurice Khosh, are qualified to conduct this preservation procedure.

Since it relates to one’s looks, plastic surgery is a huge decision that should not be made lightly. Nonetheless, when carried out by an experienced surgeon like Dr. Khosh, preservation rhinoplasty can yield excellent results and significantly enhance your life.

What Dr. Khosh's Patients Say


Based on 174 reviews

Meredith G.
Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!
Jackie C.
Great front office, really good experience after what was a terrible accident. I was made to feel comfortable. Dr. Khosh is very good at what he does. I'm still healing but I'm confident of the results

Dr. Khosh takes exceptional care of his patients. He has operated on me twice, each time making me feel extremely comfortable and satisfied with the results. His staff is also very kind and knowledgeable.

After visiting and being evaluated by several doctors, I kept going back to Dr. Khosh. His tranquil spirit and professionalism were captivating. Thank you for a job well done and keeping me calm throughout the entire process. A special thanks to your staff Susan and Christine for all of their support as well. Hi highly recommend Dr. Khosh.

Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
Courtney G.
AMAZING!!!!!! I had Dr Khosh perform lipo on my chin/neck and my result is unbelievable! Better than I could have expected! I met with a couple of surgeons and the second I met with Dr Khosh I knew he was the one I was going with. He was compassionate and explained every detail of what would take place during the surgery and what to expect during recovery. I even emailed a few times during recovery with various questions and he got right back to me asap which was really comforting! I honestly fully recommend Dr Khosh, he did an amazing job and is an amazing person.

i can finally breathe!! Dr. Khosh made the entire experience a breeze, it was truly a pleasure to be under his care. I am forever thankful and highly recommend him. Not only does his work speak for himself, but he has excellent bedside manner. His kindness and patience is above and beyond. He takes the time to answer to every question you have to help you understand the process while at the same time making you feel so comfortable. From the first consultation i knew i was in good hands. I am so pleased with the result and forever thankful.
