Dr. Naderi’s focus is primarily the nose, supported by over 25 years of experience, surgical dexterity and cutting-edge rhinoplasty technology. His refined surgical technique draws regional, national and international patients to the Naderi Center for Rhinoplasty & Cosmetic Surgery. Your facial symmetry represents the essential aesthetic goal incorporated by Dr. Naderi into surgically straightening a dip, narrowing the nasal bridge or refining the tip of your nose.
Dr. Naderi has extensive experience in revision rhinoplasty as well. This is also known as secondary rhinoplasty. This corrective nasal surgery is performed to address both functional nasal problems and an improvement of the aesthetic appearance of a prior rhinoplasty.
Ethnic rhinoplasty modifies your nose, creating a more natural appearance while complimenting and maintaining your ethnicity. The most common ethnic modifications include a modification of the nasal bridge, narrowing or decreasing your nostrils or a modification of your nose angle.
Functional problems, including a deviated septum as well as breathing impairments, are the most common functional nasal surgical repairs. Rhinoplasty opens nasal airway obstructions with septoplasty, vestibuloplasty, turbinate reduction, valvuloplasty or osteotomies.
Shervin Naderi, M.D., F.A.C.S. is a member of the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS), a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons (FACS) and a Diplomat of the American Board of Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery, and of the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (ABFPRS). The Naderi Center for Rhinoplasty and Cosmetic Surgery has two locations in the metropolitan D.C. area, including Herndon, Virginia, and Chevy Chase, Maryland.
Dr. Naderi is devoted to taking the time to understand your rhinoplasty goals. Dr. Naderi works with you to determine the right look to enhance your facial features with computer generated outcomes. Previous surgeries, your past and present medical conditions, allergies and current medications are considered.
Dr. Naderi will share suggestions for the type of procedure or combination of procedures that will accommodate your anticipated outcome, together with associated risks and complications. He will show you rhinoplasty before and after images. In roughly 25% of consultations, Dr. Naderi may not suggest a rhinoplasty procedure. Dr. Naderi’s consultation goal is for his patients to make the most informed and intelligent decision about their potential rhinoplasty procedure.
If you smoke, you will be asked to stop for at least two weeks before the date of your surgery. Smoking significantly impairs your circulation and slows the healing process. Medications taken, including over-the-counter products, vitamins, and herbal products will be reviewed. Aspirin or any aspirin-containing drugs should be avoided before and after surgery. Aspirin, ibuprofen, and products containing aspirin and ibuprofen may inhibit blood clotting, causing bleeding problems during and after surgery. If you need a fever reducer or pain reliever, take Tylenol or another brand of acetaminophen.
Rhinoplasty procedures require roughly two to three hours and are performed under general anesthesia. During the rhinoplasty procedure, Dr. Naderi will make incisions along your nose, accessing the tissue and bones of the nasal structure. The two most common incision techniques are open and endonasal. There are also multiple methods for augmenting your nose or smoothing surface deformities.
To reduce or increase the size of your nose, bone or bone which is combined with cartilage may be excised or added to your nose. This procedure adjusts your interior nasal support structures, allowing the tip of your nose to be modified by uplifting, lengthening, shortening or thinning your nose.
Autologous cartilage grafts may be taken from your nasal septum located in the interior wall of your nose dividing one air passage from the other. This option creates the best opportunity for a natural-appearing result. If cartilage and bone have been previously removed from the nasal septum, then ear or rib cartilage may be used. In some cases, bone from the skull may be an option.
Skin and other soft tissues will remodel the shape of your nose, assuming the shape of the modified underlying structure. Dr. Naderi will place the skin back over the nose. A splint is then placed over the nose to support it as it heals into its new form. Nasal packing may also be used to temporarily support the nose’s new structure further.
In an open rhinoplasty procedure, a small external incision is made on the underside of the nose between the nostrils. Additional incisions are made on the inside of the nose that cannot be seen. An open rhinoplasty fully opens the nose, providing improved visualization of the nasal structures and a more direct route for surgical manipulation. The small scar left at the nose base is barely visible after the healing process.
In an endonasal rhinoplasty, also known as closed rhinoplasty, incisions are made inside the nasal passages. These incisions are hidden and are not visible after surgery. Endonasal rhinoplasty offers a limited view of and dissection of nasal tissues.
The splint used to support your nose and the bandaging around it are typically removed within a week after your surgical procedure. Nasal packing, if used, will be removed sooner, typically within two days after the surgery.
There will be bruising and swelling around your nose and eyes which may persist for several days. Your face may have some puffiness. Cold compresses will help mitigate swelling and reduce discomfort during recovery. Pain medication may be prescribed. You can resume physical activities and a normal routine generally within two weeks, depending upon how fast you heal.
Are you a Candidate for Rhinoplasty Surgery?
Rhinoplasty corrects the size or shape of your nose for aesthetic and functional reasons. Dr. Naderi takes pride in engaging in a frank discussion with patients, addressing your unique facial features and the potential impact of rhinoplasty. He provides an honest opinion regarding the effectiveness and realistic expectation of rhinoplasty supported by digital computer imaging. His patients must be in good health and at least sixteen years of age.

What is a septoplasty and can it be performed with a rhinoplasty?
A septoplasty is a procedure which straightens the septum to provide better airflow in patients who are suffering from a deviated septum. Rhinoplasty and septoplasty are often performed together. Cartilage removed from the septum in order to straighten you nose can be used during rhinoplasty surgery for grafts. Postponing aesthetic rhinoplasty until after your septoplasty may mean that septal cartilage is not available for use as grafts and may require that cartilage be taken from your ears or ribs. Combining the surgeries also allows for a single week-long recovery rather than two separate ones.
What are the potential rhinoplasty risks?
During your consultation, Dr. Naderi will explain any potential risks that may occur as he assesses your aesthetic goals. Rhinoplasty is a complex procedure and although the risks are unusual, they do exist as with every form of surgery. A rhinoplasty, also known as a nose job or a nose job procedure, was performed on over 67,563 patients in 2015. Nose cosmetic surgery continues to grow in popularity.
