Rhinoplasty Columbus Ohio

Rhinoplasty also known as a nose job is a surgical procedure intended to alter the hard tissue components of the nose to reshape its architectural framework. Your nose is basically made up of two components: hard and soft tissue. The hard tissue is bone and cartilage. The upper one-third of your nose is bone while the lower two-thirds is cartilage. The soft tissue component is comprised of skin and fatty tissue. In most instances, not much can be done to change the soft tissue components.

Why have rhinoplasty or nose-shaping surgery?

The nose is our most prominent and distinctive facial feature. Some individuals have never liked the appearance of their nose, while some have seen its appearance altered by trauma. Still others don’t like the changes that have come with aging. Whatever the reason, if you have been thinking about changing your nose, rhinoplasty might be for you. Rhinoplasty or nose surgery—one of the most common cosmetic procedures—involves reshaping the bone and cartilage framework of your nose.

Who is a good candidate for rhinoplasty?

Healthy patients who are unhappy with the appearance of their nose are good candidates for a rhinoplasty procedure.

Rhinoplasty Columbus, Ohio Procedure:

A rhinoplasty Columbus Ohio is performed in one of two ways: either closed or opened. In the closed approach, all of the incisions are hidden inside the nose, leaving no external scar. This procedure is done by the surgeon’s feel, rather than direct visualization. Even though Dr. Michael Sullivan was classically trained to perform closed rhinoplasty, he has found his results over the last 25 years to be more accurate and predictable when using the open approach. The procedure takes about 2.5 hours.

Rhinoplasty Post-Op Results:

The nasal splint and sutures are removed one week following rhinoplasty surgery. Although the nose may appear slightly swollen, rhinoplasty patients are typically comfortable returning to work, school or usual activities at this time. Light exercise is permissible eight to ten days after the rhinoplasty Columbus, Ohio procedure.

I Thought About Rhinoplasty for 20 Years Before Getting It Done

My doctor is a board certified facial and reconstructive plastic surgeon. He has excellent credentials and experience.

36 Years Old and Finally Had It Done and So Far Very Happy!!! Columbus, OH

Finally Got a Rhinoplasty and I Could Not Be Happier – Columbus, OH


I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Mike! From the first moment I met him I knew I was at the right place. He was very kind and professional and you could tell he looked at each individual differently. What I am trying to say is all of his rhinoplasty procedures resulted in a different nose that fit that person’s face perfectly. I wanted a natural looking nose that fit my face so that I still looked like me and that is what you will get when you go to Dr. Mike. I would recommend him to anyone!

Fretting over a Nose Job FOR YEARS–FINALLY, Got the Courage to Do It – Columbus, OH


Dr. Sullivan is a very attentive physician. He has a pleasant demeanor and genuinely cares about the desires and needs of his patients. He makes himself available to address patient concerns, in and outside of the office. I feel VERY GOOD about my decision to have him perform my procedure. I was referred to him by my dermatologist (Dr. Dominic Neal Mastruserio–whom I ALSO love as a practitioner). In my personal opinion, one cannot go wrong entrusting either of these physicians to be their care provider. After my procedure, my confidence in Dr. Sullivan’s competence and skill has only increased. I TRUST him and his integrity as a physician and surgeon.

Would Recommend Dr Mike to Anyone!


Very professional and a great bedside manner. Extremely skilled surgeon who I wouldn’t hesitate to return to for any future procedures!

Very Happy Girl!!! No Regrets.. – Columbus, OH


I did a lot of research on doctors in the area and decided to have my first consultation at the Sullivan Centre. After my consultation he made me feel comfortable and asked me about my concerns and what I felt was wrong with my nose instead of telling me what he thought was wrong. My gut feeling led me to book the procedure and he was the only surgeon I had consulted. Dr. Sullivan is genuinely nice and not only did he call me the evening of my procedure but he called me the next morning as well to see how I was doing. I feel he is truly an artist. I strongly recommend him to anyone thinking of surgery in the Ohio area. Not only is Doctor Sullivan great but the whole staff was as well. Thanks so much!!!

Dr Mike is Amazing! -Columbus, OH
