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.
"My surgery went extremely well. It has only been a week and my nose already looks amazing. Dr. Elkowitz is amazing and the staff has been great. I am so happy with everything."
Dr. Elkowitz fixed my nose at 52 years old! I had always disliked the size of my nose, and after Dr E had done a repair to my forehead following Moh’s surgery, I trusted him to fix my nose. He did such an amazing job. My nose fits my face, but looks better! I do not feel like he made it too small or gave me a cookie cutter “one size fits all” job. He left the character and uniqueness, but improved the overall appearance. I highly recommend him!
"Dr. Elkowitz performed my Rhinoplasty three weeks ago and I have never been happier with the way I look. My healing process was painless, the incision is unnoticeable, and I am healing so well. I have gotten so many compliments on my nose and I feel it still looks so natural. Dr. Elkowitz and his staff also made me feel so confortable through the entire process of my surgery. I would not have trusted anyone else to perform this procedure and I now recommend Dr. Elkowitz to everyone."
