Rhinoplasty (nose job) by Dr. Haworth

Philosophy

Dr Randal Haworth

As a rhinoplasty specialist, Dr. Haworth is renowned for his results because he is one of the few with the skills to meld beauty with simplicity. First, he analyzes a nose to formulate a surgical plan. Second, in the operating room, he strives to not only reshape it into a beautiful feature but also artistically scale it to the rest of the face.

One size does not fit all: 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 the 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.

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 than any other rhinoplasty specialists in terms of comfort and healing.

Beverly Hills plastic surgeon, Randal Haworth, M.D., F.A.C.S. has garnered a global reputation as a rhinoplasty and rhinoplasty revision expert based on the superbly natural and beautiful noses he creates. Dr. Haworth infuses his artistic sensibility to sculpt a nose that perfectly harmonizes with other facial features 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. In general, nose surgery has become significantly more sophisticated than in generations past, resulting in far more subtle, natural outcomes than ever before.

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

Rhinoplasty is not only useful for aesthetic purposes, but can be used for more practical and essential corrections. In the hands of a Beverly Hills rhinoplasty expert such as Dr. Haworth, nasal birth defects, injuries and even breathing complications can be resolved.


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.

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 is 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!”

Rhinoplasty Revision – Occasionally plastic surgery does not achieve the exact results you had hoped for. You must remember, however, that surgery isn’t a means of achieving perfection. 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 but still must have realistic expectations as to the end result.

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 rhinoplasty revision 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.

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.

Compatible Procedures

As expert rhinoplasty surgeon, Dr. Haworth’s primary goal – as it is with any procedure he performs – is to balance the features to look perfectly natural…and naturally perfect. Consequently, it is not uncommon to combine surgical procedures for optimum results.

Chin implant — As a rhinoplasty specialist, by far and away the most common procedure done in conjunction with nasal surgery is a chin implant. This is because the nose and chin are the most prominent features of the face in profile and when the two are balanced in size and shape, facial harmony is greatly enhanced. This is a classic example of the final result being greater than the sum of its individual parts.

Face and/or Neck Lift — With age, in addition to sagging in the lower half of the face, the nose can grow larger, more bulbous or begin to droop at the tip. Therefore, a combination rhinoplasty plus facelift is superb in restoring more pleasing, proportional features.

Lip Lift — Dr. Haworth is unique among rhinoplasty specialists because he is also a pioneer in the lip lift surgeries, having developed his own signature lip lift techniques. Often, a lip lift in conjunction with a rhinoplasty offers a more pleasing result because in frontal view, facial harmony and youthful appearance are greatly heightened.

Setting Patient Expectations

As rhinoplasty surgeon with a keen artist’s eye, Dr Haworth understands that this takes extra time and sensitivity. His goal is to impart the impression one was actually born with the ideal nose others would envy. Consequently, his rhinoplasties take longer to perform than in years past. Not only does he build the ideal nose in terms of projection, angles, shape and size but then he methodically erases most evidence that surgery has been performed in the first place by employing advanced surgical maneuvers.

Neither rhinoplasty nor rhinoplasty revision 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
