Reshape & Contour
Rhinoplasty Toronto is one of the most requested facial cosmetic surgery procedures. Also referred to as a nose job, nasal surgery can take many forms and help people of all backgrounds reshape and enhance their nose.
The function of nasal passages may also be improved through the addition of a septoplasty procedure. Rhinoplasty surgery can be transformative for patients and highly satisfying for Toronto rhinoplasty surgeons. Because it’s one of the most challenging cosmetic surgery procedures, surgeons who specialize in this area develop finely tuned skill and precision to alter noses and improve the harmony of the entire face.
Toronto Rhinoplasty Expertise
Choose a Specialist
Nose jobs are popular, but not just any surgeon will be an ideal choice for your nose. You require an experienced facial plastic surgeon with in-depth knowledge and experience. Your rhinoplasty surgeon should have a reputable practice dedicated to the complexities of facial enhancement.
Dr. Cory Torgerson creates balanced facial improvements with a customized approach for each individual. An advocate for the art of rhinoplasty, Dr. Torgerson believes in bespoke nose reshaping that carefully considers ethnicity, gender, age, overall features, and preferences. No two faces are alike, and the cosmetic improvements that people choose should be suited to their proportions, personality, and uniqueness.
Dr. Torgerson has been published as a facial and reconstructive surgery expert. He’s a faculty member at the University of Toronto in the Division of Facial Plastic Surgery, and he lectures medical students and residents in the art of facial cosmetic and rhinoplasty surgery.
Because your nose is one of your most noticeable features, planning a rhinoplasty should begin with selecting the top cosmetic surgeons and scheduling consultations to gather expert feedback and advice. Your surgeon should be dedicated to the innovation and advancement of rhinoplasty.
How is The Rhinoplasty Procedure Done?
Dr. Cory Torgerson
Nose-reshaping surgery is typically carried out under general anaesthesia, though in some cases it may require only local anaesthetic and IV sedation. It will take between 1 and 3 hours to complete, depending on the details of a person’s surgery.
The wide variety of goals and techniques available mean that the specifics of each person’s procedure will be different. You may have adjustments made to the bone and cartilage of the bridge, the removal or addition of tissue, or changes to the nostrils, the nose tip, or the radix. A septoplasty is designed to straighten and remove obstruction from nasal passages due to a malformed septum. Combining functional and aesthetic improvements to the nose is called a septorhinoplasty and will mean improvements that you can see and feel once you have healed.
Dr. Torgerson’s approach to Rhinoplasty Toronto utilizes primarily the closed method. This means that the tissue alterations are all made through incisions hidden within the nostrils. For his patients, this method leads to higher patient satisfaction, and it allows him to perform the rhinoplasty with greater precision and care.
Another frequently used approach to rhinoplasty is the open method. Greater exposure to the internal structures of the nose is accessed by creating a small “inverted V” incision between the nostrils. Whether using closed or open methods, Dr. Torgerson will artfully sculpt cartilage, bone, skin, muscle, and fat to reveal the desired outcome.
The First Step Of Your Journey Begins With A Conversation
We'll Get Back to You Within 1 Business Day.
What can a patient expect during recovery?
Dr. Torgerson’s cosmetic surgery clinic is staffed with a caring, knowledgeable team of medical professionals. They’ll walk you through every step of planning and recovery for your procedure. Following rhinoplasty, Dr. Torgerson provides his personal cell number so patients can call or text him with questions after hours.
You’ll be able to return home the same day as your rhinoplasty. We ask patients to have a friend or family member with them as an escort. Most people are advised to take at least 1 week off work or school. In some cases, 2 weeks is preferable, because most of the swelling and bruising is resolved by then, and patients who wish to remain discreet will appreciate not having any bandages, splints, or telltale bruises to show.
For the first week, you can expect to feel stuffiness and facial pressure and see minor bleeding or bruising and general facial swelling. Luckily, these are quite temporary, and you’ll note a rapid improvement in the first 7 days. Most people don’t describe the process as overly painful. However, pain medication is prescribed if needed. You’ll have scheduled follow-up appointments to attend and a few activity restrictions to be aware of, especially within the first 2 to 3 weeks. These include avoiding any pressure on the nose, lifting, bending over, working out at the gym, or playing sports. Your surgeon will let you know when you’re cleared to get back to your favourite activities following rhinoplasty Toronto.
What happens during a rhinoplasty consultation?
When you’re ready to start the conversation about your rhinoplasty, Dr. Torgerson invites you to meet with him for a complimentary consultation. During the appointment, he’ll examine and analyze your nose, then provide a personalized treatment plan. A tool that our nose job patients love is the Vectra 3D imaging camera. Through advanced digital imaging, you and Dr. Torgerson can realistically design the natural, proportionate nose enhancements that you want. Feel free to bring a list of questions for your free consultation and bring a friend if you wish. Dr. Torgerson will listen to all your concerns and goals, provide detailed procedure information, and ensure that you’re well informed about the pros, cons and expectations of rhinoplasty surgery.
While you’re visiting Dr. Torgerson’s office, you’ll be able to view additional rhinoplasty before and after photos. Many results images not published for public viewing online are available in the extensive, private portfolios that we keep with patient permission. You’ll see Dr. Torgerson’s diverse and beautiful results showcased on a variety of people with different nose-reshaping needs.
In Toronto, rhinoplasty surgeons include those who have ENT certification, otolaryngologists, and facial plastic surgeons. Dr. Torgerson is a leading rhinoplasty surgeon in Canada as both an ENT surgeon and facial cosmetic surgeon. He has dedicated his practice to the subspecialty of nasal and facial procedures, which he loves to perform. Because of his extensive experience and reputation, Dr. Torgerson is sought out by clients across the nation.
Do you have questions about your rhinoplasty in Toronto?
We’ve provided answers to some of our most frequently asked nose job questions:
What is the difference between open and closed rhinoplasty?
Closed rhinoplasty utilizes surgical incisions hidden within the nostrils. Open rhinoplasty requires a small incision made on the columella (where the nose meets the upper lip). Your best rhinoplasty approach will depend on your needs, and Dr. Torgerson will explain your options in detail.
How does thick or thin skin affect results?
Patients who have thicker skin may not be able to achieve the definition they desire at the nose tip, whereas people with thin skin can find that small imperfections and underlying contours show through the skin. In either case, choosing an experienced rhinoplasty specialist will help ensure that you get the best result for your features.
What is the age requirement for nose surgery?
Dr. Torgerson recommends that patients be over 16 years of age before undergoing rhinoplasty surgery. By the late teens, nasal tissue should be finished growing. Other essential factors include maturity and the ability to understand and follow directions. Anyone under 18 considering cosmetic surgery will need their parent or guardian to consent to their operation.
What are the different types of nose-reshaping surgery?
You may choose:
- Alar base reduction
- Ethnic rhinoplasty
- Repair of a broken nose
- Correction of a deviated septum
- Improvement of saddle-nose deformity
- Build up a low radix
- Revision rhinoplasty
- And more!
What is an Ethnic Rhinoplasty?
This elite specialty requires extensive practice experience. In a beautifully diverse city like Toronto, rhinoplasty is the procedure of choice for a variety of goals and purposes. Because people have distinctive facial characteristics according to their ethnicity, people have different desires for outcomes. It’s essential that a facial cosmetic surgeon be mindful of facial harmony and character when making changes that honour a person’s ethnicity. Most people don’t choose a nose job to completely erase distinct nose traits. A natural result will usually address disproportionate elements such as wide nostril flare or a pronounced bump on the bridge without changing the nose entirely.
Dr. Torgerson has operated on various nose shapes and types, including Persian rhinoplasty, Asian rhinoplasty, and African-American rhinoplasty. Each client’s expressed goals and facial proportions are respected for a result that looks completely natural and in sync with their appearance.
What does rhinoplasty Toronto cost?
The relatively high cost of cosmetic surgery can be a sound investment, ensuring lasting, dramatic physical transformation and improved confidence. However, the expenses must be weighed carefully when considering your needs and budget. Typically, the surgical quote that you receive for your procedure will depend on the facial plastic surgeon, the extent of rhinoplasty needed, and the practice location. Some of the costs included in Dr. Torgerson’s Toronto Plastic Surgery Centre quotes are anaesthesia and nurse’s fees, the surgical facility cost, medications and surgical supplies, the surgeon’s time, the pre- and post-operative appointments, and administration. What may not be included are additional medication fees or surgical garments.
Ask your surgeon to explain any aspect of your total cost that is unclear. Overnight nursing, if preferred, would incur additional fees, but most nose job patients return home the same day instead.
Your rhinoplasty price may be between $6,000 and $13,000 plus tax. (Prices are subject to change over time.) Dr. Torgerson knows that a large, one-time payment can be difficult to manage for many people, Medical financing companies are available to help alleviate the financial pressure while allowing for low, monthly payments to be made over a more extended period. We’ll be happy to connect you with the reputable financial partners that we have. Just ask about financing when you come in for your consultation.
