Individual results may vary

Rhinoplasty is one of several facial plastic surgery procedures offered at our Des Moines practice. Dr. Robbins can combine nose surgery with other enhancements such as chin augmentation. Dr. Robbins has a special focus on facial cosmetic surgery, and is the only quadruple board certified plastic surgeon in Iowa by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, American Board of Cosmetic Surgery, American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and the American Board of Laser Surgery.

When to Consider Rhinoplasty

You may be a good candidate for nose reshaping surgery if you:

  • Have structural problems like a hook or a bump
  • Have functional problems like a deviated septum
  • Are healthy and do not smoke
  • Possess realistic goals and expectations

Nose surgery can improve the balance and proportion of your face by altering the size, shape or projection of your nose. It may also be used to correct breathing problems and birth defects.

The best way to determine if surgery is right for you is to schedule a complimentary cosmetic consultation at Des Moines Plastic Surgery™. Dr. Robbins specializes in rhinoplasty and other facial cosmetic surgeries.


  • What happens during nose surgery?

    At Des Moines Plastic Surgery™, nose surgery is an outpatient procedure that typically requires general anesthesia. Once you’ve been placed under anesthesia in our fully accredited operating room, Dr. Robbins will either make a small incision across the base of your nose (known as open rhinoplasty) or within your nostrils (known as closed rhinoplasty).

    Through these incisions, Dr. Robbins can reduce or augment your nose, depending on your cosmetic or medical needs. Once surgery is complete, Dr. Robbins will apply a nasal splint and nasal supports to hold your new shape during recovery.

  • How much time will I need to take off from work?

    When you wake up from surgery, your face will feel swollen and bruised. You should plan to spend the first couple of days resting in bed with your head elevated. Most patients are able to resume work and light physical activity within a week of surgery. It’s important to remember that noticeable facial swelling and bruising may be present for a couple of weeks.

  • When will I see the final results of surgery?

    Most swelling and bruising will subside within one month of surgery. From there, some residual swelling, noticeable only to you and Dr. Robbins, may last for 6 months. You may need to wait up to a full year before your final results are visible.

  • Are there any alternatives to nose surgery?

    Some dermal and soft tissue fillers may be used to provide subtle corrections to the shape of your nose. However, it’s important to note that these products only provide temporary results. Repeated treatments will be needed to maintain results. Several kinds of dermal and soft tissue fillers are available at Des Moines Plastic Surgery™.

  • What are some of the risks associated with nose surgery?

    Before considering nose surgery, it’s important to understand that there are risks associated with all surgical procedures. Dr. Robbins will discuss risks associated with nose surgery during your complimentary cosmetic consultation. Some risks may include, but not limited to, infection, adverse reaction to anesthesia, bleeding, numbness, swelling and scarring.

A tummy tuck can address both the upper and lower abdomen. It’s important to note that tummy tuck surgery is not a substitute for conventional weight loss. The best candidates will already be in good health and physical shape before electing surgery.

#desmoines #desmoinesplasticsurgery #boardcertifiedplasticsurgeon #cosmeticsurgery #tummytuck #minitummytuck #abdominoplasty #iowa

The goal of tummy tuck surgery is to redefine and reshape the abdomen through the removal of excess skin and fat and tightening of abdomen muscles.

You may be a good candidate for abdominoplasty if you have:

Localized fat deposits around your midsection
Excess or hanging skin around your abdomen
Stretched or separated abdominal muscles (diastasis recti)

#tummytuck #tummytucksurgery #desmoines #desmoinesplasticsurgery #desmoinesmom #iowa

A flat and well-toned abdomen is something many of us strive for through exercise and weight control. Sometimes these methods cannot achieve our goals.

Even individuals of otherwise normal body weight and proportion can develop an abdomen that protrudes or is loose and sagging. The most common causes of this include:

Prior surgery
Significant fluctuations in weight

#plasticsurgery #tummytuck #desmoines #iowa #desmoinesplasticsurgery #boardcertifiedplasticsurgeon

A tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, removes excess fat and skin and restores weakened muscles to create a smoother, firmer abdominal profile.

In 2019, the Tummy Tuck (abdominoplasty) procedure was the 5th most performed cosmetic surgical procedure performed on females in the US.

Consultation: the first step.

Many women start their surgical journey by talking to a friend or a relative who has already had a breast augmentation. While these are all good places to start, your most valuable resource is a personal consultation with a plastic surgeon.

A consultation doesn’t take long, and with an expert’s opinion, you’ll be better able to understand the benefits, risks, and discover which implant options are best for you and your body.

What LOOK can Natrelle® implants give you?
Your surgeon can help you choose the best option based on your needs, wants, unique body structure, and more. Natrelle INSPIRA® Breast Implants are designed for a full look—especially at the top. Keep in mind that choosing the right implant for you is more than just deciding on size.

#desmoines #breastaugmentation #natrelle #westdesmoines #mommymakeover #iowa #desmoinesmom

Should you request a certain bra size?

Believe it or not - no!

Surgeons talk size and projection when it comes to selecting implants. Breast implant size is actually measured in cubic centimeters (cc), not by bra cup size. The larger the implant, the higher the number of cc.

Projection refers to the side profile or the distance that the implant projects from your body.

The amount of volume (cc) and the degree of projection you and your surgeon select will depend on your body type and the shape and fullness you want.

What does GUMMY feel like?

All Natrelle INSPIRA Breast implants are soft, with varying levels of gel squishiness. When you go gummy, you don’t have to sacrifice implant softness. The best way to determine softness is to feel each implant during your consultation.

#gummyimplants #breastaugmentation #mommymakeover #desmoinesplasticsurgery #desmoines #iowa

What does GUMMY mean?

Gummy describes the consistency of silicone gel in Natrelle INSPIRA Breast Implants.

This gummy-like gel sticks together and has a tendency to hold its shape.

Each implant in the INSPIRA collection has a different level of cohesivity, or what surgeons refer to as gumminess.
