  • The price of rhinoplasty surgery can vary widely depending on several factors, including the complexity of the procedure, the surgeon’s experience, and the location where the surgery is performed. Dr. Saman is known for his meticulous attention to detail and personalized approach to rhinoplasty, ensuring that each patient’s unique needs are addressed.

    For more specific information about the cost of rhinoplasty and to discuss your individual needs, please contact us at [09120748236] or [contact@drsaman.com]. We’ll be happy to provide you with a detailed estimate and answer any questions you may have about the procedure and its associated costs.

  • Yes, private health funds can potentially cover a portion of the costs associated with a rhinoseptoplasty. Dr. Saman is experienced in determining when a procedure may qualify as medically necessary rather than purely cosmetic. Prior to your procedure, a comprehensive medical history and physical examination will be conducted to ascertain if medical item numbers are appropriate, potentially leading to coverage from your health fund.

  • Yes, hospital admission is necessary for your rhinoseptoplasty procedure. Dr. Saman performs surgeries at Nikan hospital. During your consultation, our team will provide you with all the necessary information regarding your hospital stay and pre- and post-operative care. If you have any specific concerns or questions regarding your procedure, please don’t hesitate to reach out to contact us.

  • Dr Saman does not operate in public hospitals.

  • Yes, all of our surgical procedures, including rhinoseptoplasty, are performed under a general anaesthetic. This ensures your comfort and safety during the procedure.

  • Yes, Dr Saman performs all surgeries himself. He is a skilled and experienced facial plastic surgeon, ensuring that each procedure is carried out with the highest level of expertise and attention to detail.

  • For rhinoseptoplasty, patients typically go home the same day after their surgery. However, some patients, particularly those with specific medical conditions or who do not have someone to assist them at home, may stay one night at the hospital. This is done to ensure that they receive proper care and monitoring during the immediate post-operative period. It is essential to have a family member or friend available to take care of you when you return home, as you may experience some discomfort and require assistance with daily activities. Dr. Saman will provide you with detailed post-operative care instructions, including guidance on what to expect and how to manage any discomfort or pain at home.

  • Recovery times after rhinoseptoplasty vary depending on the nature of your work. Dr. Saman usually provides a medical certificate for two weeks post-surgery. The plaster is typically removed one week after the operation, and many patients are ready to return to work after about 10-14 days. While some patients may experience slight bruising or swelling of their cheeks, it can generally be easily concealed with makeup. Dr. Saman typically schedules a follow-up visit about six weeks after the procedure and then at six-month intervals for up to 12-18 months, allowing your nose to settle fully over time. This comprehensive approach ensures that you receive the necessary support and monitoring during your recovery, and that any concerns are addressed promptly.

  • Dr. Saman Shahidi is highly skilled in closed rhinoplasty, an intricate method that focuses on modifying the nasal framework through hidden incisions. Unlike open rhinoplasty, which allows for direct visualization of the nasal structures, closed rhinoplasty is performed using internal nasal incisions. This technique requires specialized expertise, often involving the use of cartilage grafts from the patient’s own body to achieve desired changes. The primary objective is to improve both the appearance and long-term structural integrity of the nose. Dr. Shahidi’s extensive experience and dedication to this method have established him as a top choice for patients seeking closed rhinoplasty.

  • The minimum age for rhinoplasty is 18.
