Enhance Nasal Appearance
& Functionality

Primary rhinoplasty is a procedure focused on reshaping and enhancing the nose’s aesthetics and functionality. It is typically performed for individuals who have not previously undergone nasal surgery seeking to improve their appearance or resolve functional issues related to the nose. The surgeon may address a range of concerns, including altering the size and shape of the nose, refining the nasal tip, narrowing the nostrils, or correcting any structural abnormalities that hinder proper breathing. The procedure can be customized to each patient’s unique desires and anatomical characteristics, aiming to achieve a harmonious and natural-looking result. For those looking to boost their self-confidence, correct congenital issues, or enhance their overall facial harmony, primary rhinoplasty offers a tailored solution to meet their specific needs and goals.

Your Primary Rhinoplasty Experience


During your consultation, you’ll have the opportunity to discuss your nose-related concerns and goals with Dr. Singh. The consultation involves a detailed examination of your nasal anatomy, an assessment of your specific aesthetic desires, and an evaluation of any functional issues, such as breathing difficulties. Dr. Singh will explain the procedure, discuss potential outcomes, and address any questions or concerns you may have.


When you proceed with primary rhinoplasty, Dr. Singh will discuss the right approach for your case, which could involve open or closed rhinoplasty. In an open rhinoplasty, Dr. Singh makes a small incision across the columella, the narrow strip of tissue that separates the nostrils. This allows for direct access to the nasal structures, enabling complex adjustments. For closed rhinoplasty, incisions are made inside the nostrils to conceal scarring.

Dr. Singh skillfully reshapes the nasal bones and cartilage to achieve your desired aesthetic outcome, addressing concerns such as humps, tip refinement, or asymmetry. In cases where functional issues are present, like a deviated septum, these can also be corrected during your primary rhinoplasty in Minneapolis. Afterward, the incisions are closed. Dr. Singh will provide post-operative instructions to ensure a smooth recovery and optimal results.


Initially, you may experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort around your nose and eyes. These side effects should gradually subside over the next few weeks. You’ll need to keep your head elevated, avoid strenuous activities, and refrain from wearing glasses for a few weeks. The final results may not be immediately apparent, but over several months, you will notice a significant improvement in the appearance and function of your nose.

Primary Rhinoplasty FAQs

What are the common aesthetic concerns addressed in primary rhinoplasty?

Primary rhinoplasty can address various aesthetic concerns, including nose size and shape, humps or dorsal bumps, crooked or misaligned noses, wide or asymmetrical nostrils, bulbous or drooping nasal tips, and more. Cosmetic nose jobs in Minneapolis are tailored to meet each patient’s specific goals.

How is primary rhinoplasty different from revision rhinoplasty?

Primary rhinoplasty is the first surgery a patient undergoes to address nasal concerns. Revision rhinoplasty, on the other hand, is performed when a patient has previously had nasal surgery and requires additional corrections or refinements.

What are the different approaches to primary rhinoplasty?

There are two main approaches to primary rhinoplasty: open and closed. In open rhinoplasty, a small incision is made across the columella, allowing direct access to the nasal structures. Closed rhinoplasty involves incisions made inside the nostrils, keeping any scarring hidden. The choice of approach depends on the patient’s unique needs.

Is primary rhinoplasty painful?

During surgery, you will be under anesthesia, so you won’t feel any pain. However, after the procedure, some discomfort, swelling, and bruising around the nose and eyes are common. Dr. Singh will provide pain management strategies to help alleviate any postoperative discomfort.

Are there any risks associated with primary rhinoplasty?

Like any surgical procedure, primary rhinoplasty carries some inherent risks, such as infection, bleeding, scarring, and anesthesia-related complications. However, these risks are low, especially when an experienced surgeon like Dr. Singh performs the surgery. It’s crucial to discuss potential risks and complications with your surgeon during the consultation for a primary rhinoplasty in Minneapolis.

How long does it take to see the final results of primary rhinoplasty?

The final results of primary rhinoplasty may not be immediately apparent due to initial swelling. However, as the swelling gradually subsides over several months, you will notice a significant improvement in the appearance and function of your nose. The timeline for seeing the final results can vary from patient to patient.

Can I combine primary rhinoplasty with other facial procedures?

Yes, primary rhinoplasty can be combined with other facial procedures if desired. Common combinations include rhinoplasty with chin augmentation or eyelid surgery to achieve a more balanced and harmonious facial appearance. However, it’s essential to discuss your goals and options with Dr. Singh to determine the right approach for you.

At what age can you get a rhinoplasty?

There is no specific age restriction for considering rhinoplasty; however, it’s crucial to factor in facial growth. Teenage cosmetic nose jobs in Minneapolis can be performed on girls around 15 or 16 and boys around 17 because that’s when the typical individual’s facial growth is complete. However, exceptions can be made for individuals with specific medical or functional concerns that necessitate earlier intervention, such as a deviated septum or difficulty breathing.
