Remarkable Care, Exceptional Results

I had wanted a rhinoplasty for over ten years and had a handful of consultations with other cosmetic surgeons by the time I walked into Dr. Kulbersh’s office at CFP. After my consultation I finally felt comfortable enough to schedule the procedure! Dr. Kulbersh took the time to truly understand what I wanted and kept me informed every step of the way. The facility is beautiful and clean. And the staff is amiable and professional. I underwent surgery in November and have had 2 or 3 follow-up appointments since. I would absolutely recommend CFP to anyone.

Your Rhinoplasty Experience 

Your Consultation

At your consultation, you and Dr. Kulbersh will discuss your concerns in detail. His goal is not just to reshape your nose, but also to improve the way that light reflects from your face, eliminating distracting shadows caused by nasal bumps, droops, creases, and asymmetries.

One of the most exciting developments in cosmetic facial plastic surgery is morphing technology that allows you to audition your new nose through before and “after” photographs. Dr. Kulbersh creates an image with all of the changes he plans to make to your nose. You’ll be able to see a close estimate of what you’re going to look like even before your procedure.

Your Procedure 

Your nose job will be performed at the fully-accredited Fairview Surgical Suites, where a team of experts focuses fully on your safety and care before, during, and after your procedure. You will be asleep for your surgery, which could take 2-7 hours to complete.

Nurses often ask Dr. Kulbersh what he does during surgery because patients do so well immediately after surgery. Dr. Kulbersh goes to great lengths to accomplish three important goals during his nose jobs to improve the recovery experience for his patients:

  • Minimize pain
  • Minimize bleeding and bruising
  • Eliminate nausea

Frequently Asked Questions

Complications are possible with any surgical procedure, but Dr. Kulbersh takes a variety of precautions to minimize risk before, during, and after your rhinoplasty:

  • Skin pigment changes
  • Narrowing of the nostrils
  • Shape irregularities or asymmetries
  • Impaired nasal airway
  • Prolonged nasal drainage
  • Perforation of the septum
  • Drooping or elevated nasal tip

The cost of a nose job can vary widely based on its complexity. Typically, the cost to get surgery from the best rhinoplasty surgeons in Charlotte ranges from $7,000 to $25,000, with most patients falling somewhere in the middle.

The rhinoplasty process actually starts weeks before surgery. You will be advised to stop taking certain medications and supplements that may increase bruising after the surgery. You will also receive instructions and a list of supplies to gather before surgery to prevent trips out during the recovery process. Our office is available to answer any questions or concerns as your surgery draws closer.

Rhinoplasty results usually last a lifetime.

There are no age restrictions for rhinoplasty, but Dr. Kulbersh believes the earliest appropriate age is around 15-16 years old. The nose has typically stopped growing, and many teens are emotionally mature enough by this point to make an informed decision about cosmetic surgery.

Cosmetic rhinoplasty surgery is not typically covered by insurance, but surgery for a functional issue (such as a deviated septum or nasal obstruction) may be covered. Contact your health insurance provider to learn more about whether your policy may cover your procedure.

Patients that fly in for their surgery should plan to spend at least one week in Charlotte so our team can monitor your initial recovery process. Our concierge services will help you with booking and transportation to make your visit as smooth and stress-free as possible. We also offer the option of staying your first night after surgery in our Fairview Recovery Retreat, where you will receive round-the-clock medical care in a luxurious resort-style setting.

Your relationship with our office continues long after your surgery. We are available to answer questions or schedule follow-up visits to address any concerns or complications you might encounter.

We advise out-of-town patients to remain in Charlotte for at least one week after their nose job since potential problems are most likely to arise during this timeframe. If you encounter an issue once you are back home, our staff is available via phone to answer questions and provide direction for you.
