What is rhinoplasty?

Before committing to rhinoplasty, you need to understand exactly what it is. Broadly, it is defined as any surgery that is used to reshape the nose. It can be done for both medical and aesthetic reasons, although many people use it as a cosmetic surgery procedure. There are many different types of rhinoplasty, depending on what you are looking to correct, which we will go over in a moment. Rhinoplasty is also commonly known as a nose job. There are many rhinoplasty surgeons in NYC, but we are the best choice with years of experience and a passion for helping make our customers happy and keep them comfortable.

 

What are the benefits of rhinoplasty?

There are many benefits to getting rhinoplasty surgery. The biggest benefit is that it can help you breathe more easily if you are having issues with your nasal passages. You will be very surprised at just how big of a difference this can make in your day-to-day life. Instead of worrying about how you are going to deal with problems like allergies or colds, or even just getting through a workout, you can relax and enjoy going about your daily life. If you have sleep apnea or another chronic breathing problem that affects your sleep cycle, then rhinoplasty can also help you get a completely fulfilling night’s sleep.

 

Alternatively, many people choose to have rhinoplasty as a cosmetic surgery procedure here in NYC and around the world. If you are insecure about the shape of your nose or the general combination of your facial features, then a rhinoplasty can help increase your confidence and help you feel better about yourself. When you have this increased confidence, there’s a good chance your social life and even your career will improve, because you will be more comfortable interacting with other people. When working with a rhinoplasty surgeon here at our NY office, you’ll get to determine exactly how you want your new nose to look, which is another added benefit for many people. If you’ve been thinking about taking the plunge for a while, we encourage you to get the consultation and learn more about rhinoplasty. You’ll be surprised at just how big of a difference it can make in your life.

 

What are the risks associated with rhinoplasty?

As with any major surgery, there are some risks that are associated with rhinoplasty. Although they are minimal and you are highly unlikely to have problems when working with the best rhinoplasty surgeon in NYC, it is still important to know what the risks are and make sure you are comfortable with them before committing to the procedure. Here are the potential risks that you should be aware of.

 

After the surgery ends, you will have bruising and swelling around your nose and eyes for a short period of time. This is normal and will go away when treated properly. You may also encounter bleeding in the nose, skin problems and irritation around your nose and on your skin, and infections. These problems can all be managed with proper care after surgery and medical treatment. There is also a small risk that you may end up with damage to your septum, which separates the nostrils. This can be treated in some cases, but it can often be quite painful. However, it is very unlikely, especially with a talented plastic surgeon. Nose jobs have gotten much more advanced and common throughout the past several years, so this problem is no longer something to worry about. You could also experience nasal blockages due to swelling, which could cause larger respiratory problems. If you tend to experience extreme swelling when injured, you should talk to your surgeon about this potential problem beforehand to ensure that it doesn’t happen. Finally, you should always be sure to talk to your surgeon about the anesthetic that is being used and rule out any potential complications from that.

 

Additionally, you should always go over exactly what you want from the procedure and what you expect to happen with your surgeon before you go under the knife. Since rhinoplasty in NYC can be somewhat of an investment, you want to make sure that you get the results you are looking for. Since our rhinoplasty surgeons are highly experienced, they will be able to help you get the exact look you want as long as you clarify it with them.

 

What happens in the rhinoplasty procedure?

During the rhinoplasty procedure, the surgeon will make incisions inside your nose in order to access the bone, muscle, and tissue inside that area of the face in order to reshape it. This can be done with local anesthesia, which will just numb the face without putting you to sleep, or general anesthesia, which will put you to sleep for several hours. You should talk to your surgeon about this beforehand to make sure you are comfortable with your choice.

 

Once the anesthetic has been applied, the doctor may remove or shift certain parts of the nose to get your desired look. They may also remove and reapply the skin of the nose afterwards. The exact procedure will depend on which type of rhinoplasty you decide to get, which we will cover in a moment.

 

After the surgery is over, the surgeon will place a splint over the nose and the middle of the face for structural support as that area heals. There may be instances where you will need to stay at least one night in the hospital to recover, particularly if you chose to use general anesthesia or if you are in a lot of pain. However, in most cases, you will be able to leave directly afterwards if you have a friend or family member present.

What is the recovery process like?

The recovery process for a rhinoplasty is generally not too intense. However, you will need to take some time off of work or school to recover, so be sure to keep that in mind when scheduling your NYC rhinoplasty. You will need to continue wearing the splint and bandages for about a week until your wounds heal enough for you to go back to your normal life. Your doctor will also prescribe you painkillers as needed to keep you comfortable.

You will need to rest and take things easy, because your face will be very swollen for about two weeks. You should be sure to keep your head elevated, particularly when you sleep, to avoid blood rushing to your face and increasing the swelling even more. You may also want to apply an ice pack to your face to reduce swelling and pain. Be sure to keep your head still and avoid exercising until you have recovered fully. Your doctor will go over all of these things with you when you have the surgery, and they will also make sure that any specific concerns or problems that you have are addressed.

What are the different types of rhinoplasty?

There are a few different types of rhinoplasty that are used to correct different problems with the nose. The first is reduction rhinoplasty, which is the most common form of the procedure. This type of rhinoplasty is used to make the nose smaller and more compact. During this procedure, the surgeon removes small parts of the nose to make it thinner or shorter, and they can also remove any bumps as well. The goal of this type of rhinoplasty is usually to make the nose more proportionate to the rest of the face.

Augmentation rhinoplasty is sort of the opposite of reduction rhinoplasty. During this type of procedure, the surgeon will do a skin graft to make certain areas of the nose larger. They usually will take tissue from other parts of the nose or face, but in some cases they may take tissue from other parts of the body or even use donated tissue. With both reduction and augmentation rhinoplasty, the surgeon will carefully plan out the desired shape of the nose with the client before the surgery, usually using a computer to do so.

For clients who have a broken nose or other injury that requires correction, the surgeon will perform post-traumatic rhinoplasty. In this form of rhinoplasty, the surgeon will straighten the nose, repair any breaks or other injuries, and ensure that the septum is healthy and does not have any injuries. In many cases, this procedure is relatively simple, as all the surgeon has to do is re-set the nose, but if the break is particularly severe, then the surgeon may have to do more complex procedures to repair it.

Reconstructive rhinoplasty is a procedure that re-shapes or rebuilds the nose after an accident or illness that results in loss of the nose. As in augmentation rhinoplasty, the surgeon will use skin grafts to rebuild the nose. However, this process is much more complicated and can take multiple procedures to do effectively. If you need reconstructive rhinoplasty, it is important to use a very talented surgeon for this procedure.

As rhinoplasty specialists in NYC, we offer all of these types of rhinoplasty surgery. Please contact us for a consultation so that we can determine if you are a good fit for rhinoplasty. During a consultation, we can also determine which techniques will work the best for you if you do decide to go forward with surgery.

 

How much does it cost?

The cost of rhinoplasty is a common concern for our clients in our NYC office. The cost of rhinoplasty can vary depending on the exact procedure you are having as well as factors like your insurance. Before your surgery, you will have a consultation with your doctor, during which they can help you determine a ballpark figure for exactly how much the procedure will cost. Generally, rhinoplasty is known to cost at least $3,000, and the surgery generally does not cost more than $15,000.

There are many factors that go into determining the price of your surgery. The difficulty and severity of your procedure may have an effect on it – for example, a complete reconstruction of the nose will cost much more than a simple reduction rhinoplasty to remove a few small bumps. The amount of care that you need throughout the surgery and recovery period will also affect it, as medications and post-op visits will add more to the overall cost of the surgery. On top of that, anesthesia can add extra charges to the bill, depending on what type you decide to use.

Your doctor’s experience level can also have an effect on the cost of the surgery. However, this is something that you should never skimp out on. It is virtually always better to pay a bit more for experience to be completely sure that you are getting high quality treatment than to be unsure. The location and type of facilities where you will be receiving treatment can also affect the cost. For example, since we are NYC rhinoplasty surgeons with high quality facilities, our prices may be a bit higher than some smaller clinics in the midwest or the south.

However, even though the cost of rhinoplasty can be high, there are many ways to pay for it. If you need the rhinoplasty for medical reasons, your insurance may pay for it in some cases. We also offer financing plans to help you pay off the procedure over time instead of paying for it all at once. This can help make the procedure much more affordable in the long run. If you have struggled with your nose in the past, then working with a local NYC rhinoplasty surgeon is a great step to feeling healthier and more confident.
