Rhinoplasty
Nose

The nose plays an important role in shaping your face and defining your look. Often people are dissatisfied with the look of their nose. This might be due to their nose being too large, too small, having an unsightly bump or just the wrong overall shape. Or there might be functional difficulties such as an obstruction of the nasal passages that makes breathing difficult. Whatever the problem, whether aesthetic or functional, a rhinoplasty can correct these issues.

A rhinoplasty, more commonly referred to as a nose job, is performed by restructuring the nose into the desired shape. The first step is a consultation where you’ll discuss your concerns with your surgeon who will make recommendations to address those concerns. Then, during the procedure, nearly invisible incisions are made mostly inside the nose. These allow access to the underlying framework where precise amounts of bone and cartilage can be removed or rearranged into the desired shape.

At Plastic Surgery of New York, we expertly carry out rhinoplasties in a way that looks truly natural using a patient-driven and surgeon-guided approach. We avoid that overdone, “turned-up” look of the ’80s and ’90’s. We also avoid giving every patient the same shaped nose. The perfect nose is the one that fits your face and personality the best.

Considerations

  • More commonly known as the “nose job,” rhinoplasty is one of the most frequently performed plastic surgery procedures. This treatment can correct damage caused by nasal injuries, as well as reshape or resize your nose. Rhinoplasty procedures generally take a few hours, recovery is relatively painless, and bruising usually lasts less than one or two weeks.

Q&A

 

There is no definition of the perfect nose. Very often, patients will go to a surgeon who tends to give everyone the same nose, which is a real mistake. The nose needs to fit the person; their personality, their face, their overall appearance, their body, their ethnicity and more. All of those elements combined add up to what that person’s nose should look like.

The first step is a detailed consultation with one of our expert, board-certified surgeons to discuss your concerns. Then, during the procedure, nearly invisible incisions are made mostly inside the nose. These allow access to the underlying framework where we carefully remove and rearrange precise amounts of bone and cartilage thereby creating the perfect nose for you.

Rhinoplasty procedures generally take a few hours. Recovery is relatively painless, and bruising usually lasts less than one or two weeks.

Sometimes referred to as “revision rhinoplasty,” secondary rhinoplasty is a procedure performed on patients who have previously undergone nasal surgery and are unhappy with the results. We often take on extremely difficult cases, transforming unsatisfying results into a beautiful and natural-looking nose.
In general, the surgical techniques are similar for both men and women when it comes to a nose job but there are important differences to consider. For example, for men it is important to avoid feminizing the nose, making it too dainty. With women, it’s important to avoid making the nose too small or perfect where it would look unnatural.
You will need to rest and relax for around 2 weeks after your surgery. Your nose may be swollen after the procedure, but most patients will see results immediately after the splints are removed. Those results continue to improve over time, leaving you with a beautiful facial aesthetic.
