Rhinoplasty is an aesthetic surgery that enhances the look and shape of the nose. It can also help to repair functional or breathing issues in some patients. Dr. Husam Elias is a seasoned cosmetic nose and facial surgeon who offers rhinoplasty, taking a conservative approach to allow for the most natural results. While rhinoplasty consists of only slight surgical changes, results tend to be quite noticeable. Rhinoplasty at The Pacific Coast Center for Oral, Facial & Cosmetic Surgery in Pasadena, CA is performed to make a nose look smaller or correct a nose that protrudes outward, or is of an irregular shape. The goal is to produce a more aesthetically appealing nose that meets your goals and functions properly. Learn more about rhinoplasty by contacting The Pacific Coast Center for Oral, Facial & Cosmetic Surgery to schedule an appointment for a consultation.

When the nose is out of proportion or not in balance with other facial features, it can significantly impact one’s feelings of self-confidence and self-esteem. While the shape of your nose is usually the result of heredity, the appearance may have been altered due to an injury.

Nose surgery is performed with the patient under IV sedation or general anesthesia and is considered an outpatient surgical procedure. Dr. Elias performs rhinoplasty using either an open or closed (endonasal) approach. The goal during treatment is to reduce excess cartilage, tissue, and bone or to improve and add cartilage if needed for reshaping. The nasal features are repositioned and the skin is draped over the newly structured framework. Sutures are implemented either inside the nose or along the natural external fold.

Following your cosmetic nose surgery, you will be monitored closely and then our nurses will release you to recover at home. You will experience swelling and bruising for the first few days after your procedure. In most cases, there is bruising and discoloration beneath the eyes, in addition to the nose. Cold compresses and pain medication can help relieve these symptoms. Your post-operative appointment with Dr. Elias will occur within a couple of days following surgery to check your healing process. It generally takes about 2 – 4 weeks to recover from nose surgery. Within this timeframe, strenuous exertion should be avoided.


My experience with this office was absolutely stellar. Firstly, the staff welcomes you warmly when you arrive. Diana (doctor’s assistant) met me in the exam room.  Diana has a way of instantly making you feel comfortable and any nervousness you may be feeling is dissipated.... Because you can’t stop laughing. Then enters Dr. Elias.... He is extremely approachable, honest, and knowledgeable. It doesn’t hurt that he has multiple degrees. I am ecstatic that I found this business:

Dr. Elias pulled my wisdom teeth out like they called his mamma fat or something! Surgery was quick and basically painless. Didn’t need any of the pain meds and was back at work two days later looking like a snack. Diane was the nurse that took care of me for most of the process and she was so wonderful, kind, funny and sweet. If my wisdom teeth every grow back, I will definitely be coming back to Dr. Elias immediately. Thank you!
