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 will 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.
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.
