Rhinoplasty is an effective facial plastic surgery procedure that corrects the appearance of crooked, misshapen, or obtrusive noses to add more balance and harmony to the face. Dr. Jon Turk is an experienced cosmetic surgeon who uses the most advanced techniques to provide patients with high-quality rhinoplasty and revision nose surgery at his Long Island and Manhattan practices. His precision combined with superior attention to the form and function of the nose has made him one of the most trusted doctors in the area when it comes to nose surgery. Whether you are in need of a fresh, new facial appearance, improved function of the nose, or correction of a previous nose surgery, Dr. Turk can help you achieve your goals. Contact our Manhattan or Long Island practice today to learn more.
Individuals who are not satisfied with the size or shape of their nose can undergo rhinoplasty surgery to improve its appearance so that it better complements surrounding facial features. Rhinoplasty involves removing excess cartilage and bone from beneath the skin to modify the appearance and function of the nose. Changes can be subtle or dramatic, depending on the specific goals of the patient.
The Rhinoplasty Procedure
During the rhinoplasty procedure, Dr. Turk adds or removes cartilage and bone to the framework of the nose to smooth down uneven areas, straighten out a crooked bridge, reshape the tip and nostrils, or otherwise alter the size or shape of the nose for improved form. These modifications can also be used to improve breathing and clear obstructed nasal passageways. Dr. Turk is skilled in producing natural-looking results that never look too pinched or overdone. He also uses leading-edge techniques to reduce the visibility of scarring.
Recovery from nose surgery usually takes a lot of patience. Side effects such as bleeding, bruising, and soreness usually last for two weeks, and patients are generally able to return to their normal routine after eight weeks.
Revision Nose Surgery
In some cases, patients may need to undergo a secondary rhinoplasty procedure if the aesthetic results of their original operation are not satisfactory or if functional complications develop after the initial surgery. These deformities, which can dramatically alter the appearance of the face or even impair breathing and other functions, can be corrected with revision nose surgery at our practices. However, when it comes to revision nose surgery, patients should choose a surgeon who understands the complexity of the procedure to prevent the same complications from resurfacing or new problems from developing. Dr. Jon Turk is an experienced surgeon who is skilled in correcting problems for patients who have previously undergone rhinoplasty surgery. He is able to reconstruct and reshape the framework of the nose to achieve results that satisfy the patient's desires.
