Beverly Hills Rhinoplasty Specialist - Dr. Randal Haworth

What is Rhinoplasty?

Primary Rhinoplasty

Beverly Hills plastic surgeon, Dr. Randal Haworth, M.D., F.A.C.S. has garnered a global reputation as a rhinoplasty and revision rhinoplasty expert based on his superbly natural and beautiful noses he creates. Dr. Haworth infuses his artistic sensibility to sculpt a nose that perfectly harmonizes with other facial features.

Chosen from hundreds of plastic surgeons to be the chief plastic surgeon of Fox's The Swan and as a regular expert on Extra, Dr. Randal Haworth has performed the most televised rhinoplasty and revision rhinoplasty surgeries in the history of television, which means his work has been witnessed by people around the world. As a result, he is sought out by patients who will only accept the highest quality work available.

Please visit Dr. Haworth's gallery of rhinoplasty procedures, including revision rhinoplasty before and after photos, to get a proper feel for the variety and uniqueness Dr. Haworth brings to each rhinoplasty procedure. Each nose is crafted to match the individual regardless of their ethnicity - Dr. Haworth does not apply any standard template, but works to give each nose proper balance with respect to the person's face while adding or maintaining strength, shape, and beauty. We also recommend noting the other facial procedures traditionally performed alongside of rhinoplasty surgeries.

Rhinoplasty (commonly known as a 'nose job') is among the most widespread types of plastic surgery practiced today. Yet few rhinoplasty specialists are as adept at the procedure as Dr. Haworth. It is also one of the most complicated to perform due to the complex anatomy of the region and the nose's prominent placement on the face.

Your countenance is greatly influenced by your nasal appearance. The slightest alteration to your nose, which is the most prominent facial feature besides your chin, can greatly improve your overall look.

"A beautiful nose is timeless, the ultimate fashion statement if you will which will never go out of style. It is no wonder that rhinoplasty is one of the most sought-after plastic surgical procedures today." - Dr. Haworth

Revision Rhinoplasty

Occasionally plastic surgery does not achieve the exact results you had hoped for. Over the course of his career, Dr. Haworth has corrected a wide variety of rhinoplasty procedures unsatisfactorily performed by other plastic surgeons. All revision rhinoplasty procedures performed by Dr. Haworth aim to restore balance to the nose as well as the patient's happiness.

When evaluating any potential revision rhinoplasty patient, Dr. Haworth will review certain salient details of your previous procedure to determine what may have been done and what went wrong so that he can correct the underlying mistakes. Often times, the cornerstone of this revision rhinoplasty procedure usually requires strengthening weakened underlying cartilage and consequently the support it provides.

You must remember, however, that surgery isn't a means of achieving perfection. However, if you are unhappy with the appearance of your nose after having undergone previous rhinoplasty surgery, Dr. Randal Haworth offers revision (or secondary) rhinoplasty. Dr. Haworth has extensive experience with revision patients who can expect notable improvement given realistic expectations as to the end result.

Best Candidates for Rhinoplasty

Dr. Haworth makes a point of serving each individual patient's needs and defining overall expectations from any plastic surgery procedure. As Dr. Haworth states in his blog, "'Plastic surgery will not make you happy, but it can make you happier.' In simple terms, this allows me to assess whether a patient is fundamentally happy and balanced prior to operating on them."

The best candidates for rhinoplasty or revision rhinoplasty procedures are:
  • At least 14 years old for young women, 16 for young men
  • Older patients with a nose that has started to hang or with an increasingly drooping tip
  • Patients who have a congenitally crooked nose or one that has been deviated because of trauma
  • Those who suffer from nasal obstruction from a anatomical problem of the nose
  • Those who need to correct a cleft lip-nasal deformity
  • Patients with realistic expectations about how they want their nose to be changed in shape and size to complement their other facial features
  • Those with nasal skin which is neither too thick or too thin
  • Those with unsatisfactory, unnatural-looking results from a previous rhinoplasty that may include (but are not necessarily restricted to) a pinched tip, irregular profile, collapsed sidewalls ("Inverted V Deformity"), "Saddle Nose deformity", crooked appearance, asymmetrical retracted nostril shape, etc.
  • Those with unsatisfactory functional results in breathing or nasal airflow due to tissue damage or undesirable healing
  • Those needing to get the results of a previous rhinoplasty improved while having realistic expectations of the results
Neither rhinoplasty nor revision rhinoplasty can:
  • Create an exact replica of another person's nose, celebrity or otherwise, from your preexisting nose
  • Completely correct severe deformities of the nose from either trauma or past surgery 100% of the time.
  • Narrow a nose to an unrealistic or unattractive degree
  • Alleviate personal problems (social or psychological) in your life

Rhinoplasty Techniques

Plastic surgery is a field that is constantly evolving as new understanding and ever-more-sophisticated techniques come to the fore. As a respected rhinoplasty specialist, Dr. Randal Haworth is continually analyzing and critiquing his results and attendant techniques to evolve and provide the best results possible to his patients.

One Size Does Not Fit All
Top rhinoplasty surgeons employ modern suturing and grafting techniques in accordance with patients' goals and particular anatomy. Not only is the placement of each suture critical but also the force with which it is tied. Dr. Haworth says, "Great surgery is measured in millimeters, not centimeters, but in the case of rhinoplasty surgery it is more accurately measured in fractions of a millimeter!"

A true rhinoplasty expert worth his or her salt knows that individuality is as a part of a successful result as is technical precision. Consequently, a male's nose will be different from a female's, an ethnic patient may want thinning but still retain believable integrity to the face, or a pug nosed or ski-slope button nose patient may actually look better with their nose slightly larger or with a stronger Roman profile. And no matter what, because we live in a three-dimensional world, the nose has to look naturally 'right' from every angle.

Greater Appreciation of Potential Problems
As a rhinoplasty specialist, Dr. Haworth is well aware of situations (such as nasal obstruction) which may arise after certain surgical methods. Consequently, as an experienced rhinoplasty surgeon takes into account such possibilities and knows how to avoid them with specific surgical moves.

The Open Technique
Years ago, as a rhinoplasty specialist in Beverly Hills and Los Angeles, Dr. Haworth used to perform 80% of his rhinoplasties closed – as do most rhinoplasty surgeons – to avoid the imperceptible scar across the columella (the narrow strip of tissue that separates the nostrils) as well as prolonged swelling. However, he found that these supposed advantages of the closed method did not turn out to be true. The closed method tended to result in less accurate suture placement, shifted cartilage grafts and less consistent results.

As a top rhinoplasty specialist, Dr. Haworth has the skills to perform the open method virtually scar-free (and should there be a light scar, offers the skin revision protocols including topicals and resurfacing light technologies to subsequently help it disappear.) Therefore, he has shifted his perfected rhinoplasty approach to the open method for over 85% of his nose surgeries based on practicality, reliability, safety and ultimately, patient satisfaction.

Revision rhinoplasties test the true mettle of the rhinoplasty specialist because they do not have the advantage of operating on "virgin" cartilage, skin and bone and must deal with the myriad challenges posed by damaged tissue and encasing scar. By necessity, the majority of revision rhinoplasties must be performed open because of the increased access to the delicately small nasal structures it affords. As an expert rhinoplasty surgeon, Dr. Haworth performs the open method virtually scar-free and has the in-office technologies to erase any traces of scarring.

State-of-the-Art Technology
Uncomfortable "packing the nose" after surgery used to be standard post-operating procedure. This isn't necessarily true anymore. Dr. Haworth's patients' postoperative experiences are better than ever compared to the patients of other rhinoplasty specialists in terms of comfort and healing.
