- Repair a nose that has been broken or collapsed from trauma
- Straighten a deviated septum

Your Consultation with Dr. Stein
In your initial consultation, you’ll find Dr. Stein to be a friendly, personable man who takes his time to answer all your questions and address any concerns. He begins each consultation by discussing your goals and evaluating the proportion of your face and nose. Many patients bring in pictures of celebrities to demonstrate features they like and don’t like. This helps Dr. Stein understand your desired results, and he will use your ideas to create a personalized solution that enhances your natural appearance.
State-of-the-Art Computer Imaging
To help visualize realistic results, Dr. Stein offers a state-of-the-art computer imaging system. We take your picture, enter it into the system and then you and Dr. Stein work together to customize your desired look. Dr. Stein believes the best candidates for rhinoplasty are those who want to improve, not perfect, the appearance or structure of their nose.
Procedure & Recovery
In Raleigh, rhinoplasty is performed as an outpatient procedure under twilight anesthesia – also called IV sedation. Most incisions are concealed inside the nose or along its natural creases, eventually leaving no noticeable evidence of surgery. You may have some bruising and swelling around your nose and eyes, but most of our patients tell us any discomfort is easily managed with over-the-counter medication.
You can expect to return to your normal routine within one week. As with any surgery, the most important part of recovery is allowing your body the time it needs to heal. Although the nose reshapes for up to a year, you’ll be delighted at the immediate improvement in form and function.
Dr. Stein is a facial cosmetics super-specialist, spending 100% of his time learning about and performing facial enhancement.
While having rhinoplasty, many of Dr. Stein’s patients also choose to have blepharoplasty eyelid surgery to refresh their appearance or facial implants to enhance the contour of their chin and cheeks. Combining these procedures is an effective way to achieve greater facial rejuvenation.

Obtain the Cost of a Nose Job with no Hidden Extras
A nose job, which is known within the cosmetic surgery profession as a ‘rhinoplasty’, provides an effective way to adjust any irregularity or asymmetry in the shape of the nose. A badly-set break may leave a nose crooked or with noticeable bumps, but a trained and skilled plastic surgeon is able to alter the nose’s shape with subtlety and precision. The first part of having the procedure performed entails a consultation, where a surgeon provides an idea of the cost of a nose job and can also discuss the cost of other kinds of plastic surgery, if the prospective patient intends to have more than the one operation performed. The cost of a nose job typically includes computer imaging services, which provide a realistic impression of how the final result will look.
The average cost of a nose job varies, and the total cost also depends on how much a surgeon charges for a standard consultation. If your initial consultation is free, you will save money, and you will be able to decide, based on your discussion with your surgeon, whether you would like to go ahead with a procedure, and whether there are any additional operations you would like to have performed in the same time period.
Cosmetic surgery centers which endeavor to make plastic surgery available to a wider range of people periodically offer specials which reduce the cost of a nose job or the cost of liposuction or other surgeries. A surgeon who understands that people come from varying financial backgrounds will provide you with more than one payment option, so that you will not have to put off the procedure you desire indefinitely, until you can afford a single large payment.
In order to not be surprised with hidden expenses, it is wise to use an ethical cosmetic surgeon who is upfront about the cost of face lift procedures and the cost of breast implants and other procedures. Whichever operation you wish to undergo, an honest and caring professional will do everything to make sure that you know about the costs involved, as well as the post-operative care measures that you will need to take.
Many prospective patients might assume that the cost of breast reduction will be lower than the cost of breast augmentation, since no material is being added, but these delicate operations take time, and the procedure will not necessarily be cheaper. If you have any financial concerns, you can discuss these with your surgeon. If you are travelling from out of town to have a procedure performed, you will need to factor the cost of travel and accommodation into the overall cost of a nose job or other procedure, but an attentive and helpful surgery center may be able to help you with travel arrangements.
While cosmetic surgery does cost a fair amount of money, some cosmetic surgery centers offer fair repayment plans or provide financial support via specialist lending businesses. If you desire an approximate figure for the cost of a tummy tuck, the cost of a lip job or the cost of a nose job, you can contact your surgeon telephonically or via email, but it is best to schedule a personal consultation so that you can obtain a more accurate estimate.
