"Bodytite on abs and flanks - I've always hated my love handles, no matter how much I work out or diet even when I was young that's where weight would stay. Finally I decided to do something about it! After doing a ton of research I decided BodyTite was for me. Now about a year after my procedure I can say it was totally worth it. I was swollen for maybe 9-10 weeks because they did some liposuction too, but I could tell a difference right away & my best results seemed to show at about 6 months after my BodyTite."- R. / RealSelf / Feb 05, 2020
"My clients think I'm ten years younger than my age! - I have had amazing results using Dr Hanz. He is so down to earth and can relate to anyone. The results I received are unbelievable. My clients think I'm ten years younger than my age! The procedure is painless and I was back to work in no time!"- J. / RealSelf / May 21, 2020
"Botox done right! My husband and I tried Botox for the first time and Dr. Hanz was gentle and caring. He let us decide what we wanted and what we were comfortable with. There was no "you should get this, or you need this" - Dr. Hanz is the kind of doctor we all need. I will definitely be going back. Thanks Dr. Hanz!"- T.O. / Google / Dec 19, 2020
"After searching for the perfect doctor to give me my dream body for 3 years I finally found the doctor for me! I got liposuction and a Brazilian butt lift from Doctor Hanz and he absolutely exceeded my expectations. I could not be happier and I would absolutely recommend him to anyone! He did exactly what I asked for and then some. I was nervous about having a fake looking butt and he gave me the most perfect round athletic looking butt. I had a pooch and love handles for the longest time and they are completely gone! All the other doctors I met in the past didn't really seem like they cared, but Dr Hanz listened to me with patience and answered all of my questions thoroughly! I am so grateful I met him and chose him to give me the body I have been wanting for years. The procedure was not under anesthesia and I recovered so quickly. If I could give 100 stars I would!"- D.B. / Google / Oct 13, 2020
"I had lipo 360 with Dr. Hanz. I didn't experience any pain during thanks to the medications. After the procedure I was very sore, but I was back at work at 830a the next day. The soreness has lasted since, but has gotten better & hasn't restricted me from my day to day routine. I was able to shower 48 hours after my procedure so I was able to take the garment off. I knew I was going to be swollen, but even with the swelling I could see visible results. I cried happy tears because I couldn't believe it. The nurses & doctor have been more than amazing throughout this process by checking in & making sure I am doing well. I cannot wait to see my results week after week! **Update** It's been about 10 months since my first procedure. I had my 2nd procedure 2 weeks ago on a totally different area! Much easier recovery since it was just arms and not my entire midsection. Soreness, but nothing keeping me from my everyday routine. I was back at work the next day with this procedure as well. Fabulous procedure, amazing staff, & life-long results that have made me so much more confident."- H.H. / Google / Sep 30, 2020
Can I Get Rhinoplasty?
Adults and teenagers over 16 years of age are candidates for rhinoplasty since their facial growth is considered complete. If you are unhappy with the overall look of your nose and have distinct issues you wish to improve, enhance, or correct, this procedure may be good for you. If you have trouble breathing through your nose, this procedure may be good for you. It is important that realistic expectations are discussed, as your appearance will be changed. Call Kevin R. Hanz, M.D. Aesthetic Plastic Surgery today to have any of your rhinoplasty questions answered. Dr. Hanz is looking forward to meeting with you and helping you reach your cosmetic goals.
How Will My Rhinoplasty Be Performed?
Nose surgery is performed while you are under general anesthesia and is considered an outpatient procedure. This treatment offers different surgical techniques, depending on your unique cosmetic goals as discussed with Dr. Hanz. The goal during your treatment will vary on what you are correcting, but in general, it is to either reduce excess cartilage, tissue, and bone or to build and increase cartilage for reconstruction. Dr. Hanz will reposition your nasal features to suit your aesthetic desire, and the skin will be re-draped over the newly improved framework. Sutures are implemented either on the inside portion of the nose or along the natural external crease for minimal scarring.
What Can I Expect After My Rhinoplasty?
After your rhinoplasty is complete, you will rest comfortably in the recovery area until you are released to recover at home. The area around your nose will be swollen, bruised, and sore for a week or so but should start to subside after that. You can expect some discoloration under your eyes in addition to the nose. Ice packs and pain medication can assist with these effects. Your post-op checkup with Dr. Hanz will take place within a couple of days after surgery so he can check your healing process. It takes around 2 – 4 weeks to recover from nose surgery. During this timeframe, strenuous activity or exercise should be avoided.
Frequently Asked Questions about Rhinoplasty
How much will my rhinoplasty cost?
The cost of nose reshaping surgery varies based on the technique used and how complex your procedure is. Before estimating costs, Dr. Hanz will listen to your concerns and goals to help create a custom treatment plan. After, he will go over costs. Dr. Hanz wants to help make your surgery easy to afford so you can focus on finding the best plastic surgeon in your area instead of the cheapest so Kevin R. Hanz, M.D. Aesthetic Plastic Surgery accepts many payment methods and we can help you find low-interest financing.
Will my insurance cover functional nose surgery?
Although rhinoplasty for cosmetic reasons is not covered by insurance, functional rhinoplasty that is medically necessary to improve your breathing may be covered by insurance. If you may be using your insurance, please tell Dr. Hanz in your consultation. He or someone on his team can help you submit the needed information and paperwork to your insurance to process your claim.
Are there nonsurgical options to change my nose?
To smooth lumps and bumps on your nose, a wrinkle filler (like Restylane or JUVÉDERM) might be an option. An injectable filler can temporarily correct minor imperfections on your nose, which might help you decide to get a rhinoplasty. Nose surgery is better for larger changes, long-lasting results, and to improve the actual structure of your nose for better function.
What about ethnic rhinoplasty?
Ethnic rhinoplasty is about improving the nose while still maintaining your cultural identity. This is often a consideration if you are Asian, African-American, or Middle Eastern. In your consultation with Dr. Hanz, you can talk about what you want to keep and what you want to change so he can customize your treatment plan to give you your best results.
Can I combine nose surgery with other facial surgeries?
Many patients consider combining nose surgery with another procedure, like chin augmentation. Having multiple surgeries for a dramatic result can be reviewed during your consultation with Dr. Hanz. Once he understands your goals, he can help you choose which procedures should be in your custom plan. Nose reshaping surgery can help your whole face appear more balanced so you should wait to see your results before considering another procedure.
