What is Rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty is an aesthetic procedure performed to improve the appearance or function of the nose. Plastic surgeon Dr. Renee Booth with Beyond Beautiful is a seasoned cosmetic nose and facial surgeon who offers rhinoplasty to patients all across the DFW Metroplex and beyond. To complete this advanced surgery, she takes a subtle approach to produce the softest and most natural outcomes. Although rhinoplasty consists of mild, delicate changes, the results tend to be very dramatic and leave a lasting impact on one's overall facial harmony. Cosmetic nose surgery at Beyond Beautiful is often recommended to help make a nose look smaller or improve upon a nose that is wide, too large, or misshapen. The goal of this surgery is to create a more aesthetically pleasing nose that meets your goals and functions well.

"My dark circles are not even noticeable - I have been going to Dr Ho for almost a year now and I am so pleased with my results !! I have done the Ez gel and exosome procedures for my dark circles to opt for a more natural approach before going into fillers and I have seen a drastic improvement ! My dark circles are not even noticeable. I am now in my late twenties and have been seeing a lot of changes in my face, one of which is dark circles. I was extremely insecure about them, all my life I never wore make up and I found I couldn’t leave the house without it. Thanks to Dr Ho I can confidently go out without make up. I am very selective and critical when it comes to procedures and my face. Dr Ho is someone I can trust !!! Thank you Dr Ho !"- E. / RealSelf / Aug 10, 2023
What Is Revision Rhinoplasty?
If you previously had a rhinoplasty somewhere besides Beyond Beautiful and are unhappy with your new nose shape or have trouble breathing following the surgery, you don’t have to live with aesthetic results you don’t like or suffer from functional problems. At Beyond Beautiful, Dr. Booth proudly performs revision rhinoplasty at our Plano, TX facility. Revision or secondary nose surgery often involves minor changes to better the appearance of your nose or a more comprehensive reconstruction to address its architecture. This revision rhinoplasty aims to ensure you have a new look you love and no breathing issues in the future. Prior to performing nose revision surgery, Dr. Booth will discuss your situation during a consultation to understand your personal desires and aesthetic goals before designing a treatment plan and determining the surgical technique that should be used.
What are the benefits of a rhinoplasty?

Who is a candidate for rhinoplasty surgery?
If you find yourself frustrated with the appearance of your nose and have distinct issues that you would like to improve, enhance, or correct, then rhinoplasty may be a great solution. It's important to go over realistic expectations for the outcome of your procedure as your nose and facial profile will be altered due to your new balance of facial features. Rhinoplasty, also called nose surgery or nose reshaping, can greatly improve both the appearance of your nose and your self-confidence. This treatment can correct the following conditions:
- An oversized or undersized nose
- Bumps or indentations on the nose
- A nose that is too wide or too skinny
- A nose with an unbalanced or crooked appearance
- An undesirable nasal tip
- Large or upturned nostrils
- Anatomical obstructions that cause bad breathing, or a deviated septum
In order to be a candidate for rhinoplasty, your facial features must be fully developed and you should be 18 years of age or older. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Booth so she can help you determine if this treatment is right for you.
How long is recovery after a rhinoplasty?
Upon completion of your cosmetic nose surgery, you will rest comfortably in a designated recovery area and then be released to heal at home. The nose and the surrounding areas will be swollen, bruised, and sore for the first few days. In most cases, there is some discoloration under the eyes as well. Consistently using cold compresses and inflammatory medications can help minimize these effects. Your post-op check-up with Dr. Booth will take place within 72 hours following surgery to monitor your healing process. Most people are able to return to work in about 7 – 10 days following their rhinoplasty procedure, but there will still be residual swelling. While the majority of swelling takes about 2 – 4 weeks to resolve, it can take up to a year for all of the swelling to fully resolve.
How much does rhinoplasty cost?
The cost of nose reshaping surgery varies, depending on the technique used and the complexity of the procedure. Before estimating costs, Dr. Booth will listen to your needs and goals to help create your customized treatment plan. Once this is done, she can go over your costs for the facility, anesthesia, and more. To get your best results, it's better to focus on choosing an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon, like Dr. Booth, rather than settling for the person who offers you the lowest quote. To help make your surgery easy to afford, Beyond Beautiful in Plano, Texas and Dallas Uptown accepts many payment methods, as well as low-interest financing.
Will my insurance cover functional nose surgery?
While rhinoplasty to improve your appearance is not covered by insurance, if your nose reshaping surgery is considered medically necessary to improve your breathing, some of your costs may be covered by insurance. If you are considering using your insurance, please tell Dr. Booth during your consultation. Our office will help you submit the needed paperwork and information to your insurance to process your claim.
Are there nonsurgical options to change my nose?
To smooth lumps and bumps on your nose, a wrinkle filler (like Juvéderm or Restylane) may be an option. An injectable filler can temporarily correct minor imperfections on your nose, which may help you decide to proceed with rhinoplasty. Nose surgery is better for long-lasting results, larger changes, and improving the internal structure for better function. During your consultation, Dr. Booth will let you know if you may be a candidate for nonsurgical nose reshaping.
What about ethnic rhinoplasty?
Ethnic rhinoplasty focuses on improving the nose while still maintaining your cultural identity. This may be a consideration if you are Asian, African-American, or Middle Eastern. During your consultation with Dr. Booth, you can discuss what you like about your nose and what you would like to change. This will allow her to customize your treatment plan so you get wonderful results that satisfy your goals, as well as your identity.
Can I combine nose surgery with other facial surgeries?
Many patients consider combining nose surgery with another procedure, like chin or cheek augmentation. Combining surgeries for a dramatic result can be discussed during your consultation with Dr. Booth. Once she understands your goals, she can help you decide what procedures should be in your treatment plan. Nose reshaping surgery can help your whole face look more balanced so you should wait to see your results before considering another procedure.
