Rhinoplasty Nose Great Neck New York - PSNY


Rhinoplasty
Nose

Your nose is the centerpiece of your face and plays an important role in the overall appearance of your face and defining the way you look. Many people are dissatisfied with the look of their nose for so many reasons. Their nose might be too large at either the nasal tip or the dorsum, too wide with enlarged nostrils, a bulky unrefined nasal tip, having an unsightly bump either natural or from an injury, or just the wrong overall shape for your face. Or there might be an obstruction of the nasal passages that makes breathing difficult. Whatever the problem, whether aesthetic or functional, a rhinoplasty can help!.

A rhinoplasty, more commonly referred to as a nose job, is performed with nearly invisible incisions that are made mostly inside the nose. The surgery will adjust the underlying framework precisely to achieve your 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 consultation with Dr. Elkowitz, where you will discuss your concerns and he can guide you towards an amazing result.

  • 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 a week.

Q&A

 

There is no definition of the perfect nose itself. The perfect nose is the nose that fits your face and is proportional to you. Very often, patients will go to a surgeon who mistakenly gives everyone the same nose. 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 and be the perfect nose for them.
The first step is a detailed consultation with Dr. Elkowitz 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 a week.
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 overworked where it would look unnatural.
You will need to rest and relax for around 1-2 weeks after your surgery. Your nose may be swollen after the procedure, but most patients will see results immediately after surgery. Those results continue to improve over time, as subtle swelling goes away and the effect of the new framework appears.
