Every nose is different, and so is every patient, which means that rhinoplasty, or nose surgery, must be tailored to the needs of each individual. Double board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Asaf Yalif understands this and works closely with every patient to provide the best, most natural results possible.
Rhinoplasty, also referred to as a “nose job,” is one of the most common plastic surgeries, and is effective at dramatically transforming a person’s appearance. Patients choose rhinoplasty for several reasons, including improving a crooked nose, removing a hump or bump, reducing nasal width, narrowing the nasal tip and/or adjusting its projection, and altering the size of the nostrils.
The best candidates for nose surgery:
- Have cosmetic nose issues they want transformed
- Have realistic outcomes
- Desire a long-term solution
- Desire a natural look

"Dr. Y and his staff are incredible. First class from initial meeting to my final release appointment. I’ve worked for a Plastic Surgeon, and have gone to several in the Atlanta area. Dr. Yalef by far surpasses them all, hands down. Dr. Yalef bedside manner, compassion are the best in Atlanta.

Love you and your Team!!!????"- K.E. / Facebook / Oct 16, 2017
"Dr Yalif and his staff are A+ in my book. From the very first visit (May 2017) until now (October 2017) they all were professional, attentive,caring, truthful, and accommodating. He did a wonderful job on my necklift. And continues to care for me during the healing process. Before you decide on a plastic surgeon, you owe it to yourself to consult with Dr. Yalif."- S.W. / Google / Oct 16, 2017
"I was very scared to my appointment... crying to my husband scared, my injury is very tender and painful. Dr. Y has such great bedside manner, he was gentle and handled my hand injury with care....his staff were so kind, they even held my baby. I would highly recommend him. I am not scared of my next appointment, at all."- W.D. / Facebook / Oct 12, 2017
"I have been seeing Dr. Y for several years now and am always pleased with my results. Since beginning treatments with Dr. Y I have moved to the Nashville area but still commute to the Alpharetta location for my regular appointments because Dr. Y has given me honest input on what I need and is light-handed in his approach. I look forward to getting my mommy-makeover done here as well."- D.T. / Google / Oct 09, 2017
What to Expect
An outpatient procedure, rhinoplasty is performed while a patient is under general anesthesia at an accredited facility. Depending on the technique used and the patient’s needs, surgery can last two to four hours. There are two types of nose surgery procedures: open rhinoplasty and closed rhinoplasty.
Open rhinoplasty, or external rhinoplasty, involves the plastic surgeon making a small incision on the underside of the nose between the nostrils to offer better access to the lower and middle parts of the nose. The surgeon can then manipulate tissue, skin, and bone as needed. The placement of the incisions allows for minimal scarring. Open rhinoplasty is used for more complex nose surgeries.
With closed rhinoplasty, or endonasal rhinoplasty, incisions are made inside of the nostrils. This technique is common for less complex surgeries, such as when the nose already has a good shape and isn’t considered too wide or too long. Due to the placement of the incisions, there is no visible scarring.
After surgery, a patient’s nose can be stabilized with splints made of soft material. A follow-up appointment will be scheduled for the next day where the splints will be removed and external dressings will be placed on the nose, which will remain for about two days. Patients should expect some pain, discomfort, bruising, and swelling after surgery, which should fully subside within a few weeks. The nose will reposition and evolve into its surgically enhanced shape for months after surgery. The final product should be fully realized within a year with a beautifully shaped, positioned, and proportionate nose.
