Dr. Alidad Arabshahi: Rhinoplasty surgeon northern Virginia

NOVA Rhinoplasty — a department of the Potomac ENT & Allergy Division of the Centers for Advanced ENT Care — is led by Dr. Alidad Arabshahi, MD.  He is a highly-acclaimed, fellowship-trained, board-certified Ear, Nose, and Throat (ENT) Surgeon with a professionally-focused interest in performing rhinoplasties in Northern Virginia.  Dr. Arabshahi has mastered the art and science of crafting a beautiful nose that harmonizes with the patient’s face.  While many surgeons offer rhinoplasties (“nose jobs”) as just one among many other cosmetic procedures they perform, Dr. Arabshahi focuses his entire cosmetic surgical interest in performing only rhinoplasties, thus establishing himself as truly hyper-specialized rhinoplasty expert, as opposed to a generalized “jack-of-all-trades, master-of-none” cosmetic surgeon.

Common Question Regarding Rhinoplasty

A rhinoplasty, or “nose job,” is a personal, highly-individualized medical procedure.  Depending on your clinical needs and aesthetic requirements, a the cost can vary.  To get a specific quote for you, contact Nova Rhinoplasty today!

A rhinoplasty is ideally performed in an operating room designed for facial plastic surgery.  Typically, the best settings are those wherein ENT / Otolaryngologists and Plastic Surgeons perform rhinoplasty on a routine basis.  This may be at an Ambulatory Surgery Center or Hospital-based facility.

Typically, you should look for a highly-trained, highly-experienced surgeon that performs both cosmetic / aesthetic as well as deep functional rhinoplasty surgeries.  This is so to ensure that your rhinoplasty surgery enhances both your cosmetic appearance as well as your nose’s functional outcomes.  There are many plastic surgeons that perform rhinoplasties, but many do not have training in correcting the underlying functional structures of the nose and simply enhance the appearance.  Surgeons such as Dr. Alidad Arabshahi, who have extensive training and experience in the enhancing of both the functional and cosmetic features of a nose, are your best and safest choice for obtaining a rhinoplasty.
