WOMAN'S PROFILE

Rhinoplasty

Is the shape, size, or angle of your nose making you feel self-conscious?

An asymmetrical or disproportionately sized nose can alter the aesthetic of your face and make you lose confidence in your appearance.

Rhinoplasty from Dr. Jon B. Turk or Dr. Marissa Lafer in New York, NY, can restore your facial balance and regain your confidence.

What Is Rhinoplasty?

/

This plastic surgery procedure (commonly called "a nose job") can improve the appearance, symmetry, and function of your nose. Rhinoplasty can remove 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 Benefits Of Rhinoplasty

A nose job performed by our double board-certified plastic surgeon can:

Enhance Your Appearance

Your nose is the central feature of your face. If it is crooked or disproportionately large, it can disrupt the symmetry and overall aesthetic of your face. Rhinoplasty can smooth any bumps, change the size, and straighten your nose to enhance your look.

Improve Function

A rhinoplasty can also be used to improve breathing function and heal any nasal trauma. A broken nose, deviated septum, and narrow nasal passages can all be corrected through rhinoplasty to heal, restore, and improve breathing.

Restore Your Confidence

A crooked, large, or misshapen nose can affect your overall confidence in the way you look. During your consultation, Dr. Turk will review your aesthetic goals to create a treatment plan that will have you feeling your best after rhinoplasty surgery.

Dramatic Results By Our Rhinoplasty Surgeons

Rhinoplasty results by Dr. Turk
Dr. Turk is a double board-certified surgeon with more than 30 years of experience performing facial plastic surgery and non-invasive facial rejuvenation treatments. He uses the latest technology to minimize scarring and give you the nose you've always wanted.

Types of Rhinoplasty

Open Rhinoplasty

During an open rhinoplasty, Dr. Turk or Dr. Lafer will make two incisions inside each nostril and one across the wall of tissue between your nostrils (columella). This gives him a better view of your nose and allows for more complex adjustments and alterations.

Closed Rhinoplasty

Closed rhinoplasty is a minimally invasive version of this surgery in which Dr. Turk or Dr. Lafer just makes two incisions inside each nostril. Recovery is shorter due to the discreet incisions, and there is no visible scarring. This type of procedure is typically recommended for patients who only need minor alterations.

Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty

This is a minimally invasive procedure that uses injectables rather than surgery to correct minor aesthetic issues of the nose. This procedure is not a permanent solution. Depending on the type of injectable used, it can last between 3-18 months.

Revision Rhinoplasty

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 issues, which can dramatically alter the appearance of the face or even impair breathing and other functions, can be corrected with revision rhinoplasty.

Revision nose surgery is considered more difficult than initial procedures. 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. 

If you are not happy with the results your previous plastic surgeon has provided, a revision rhinoplasty may be possible.

Unfortunately, choosing a subpar plastic surgeon can also mean subpar results. Though it can be stressful to live with nasal changes you don't love, you may be a candidate for a rhinoplasty revision. Dr. Turk  and Dr. Lafer can go over your unique case, exploring the possibilities and keeping you informed of any risks or challenges.

The Rhinoplasty Procedure What To Expect

Rhinoplasty is a common outpatient procedure we can perform in our New York, NY, office. Every nose is different, so every treatment plan is set to meet your specific needs. Below are the general steps you can expect your rhinoplasty to involve:
The entire procedure can be completed in one to two hours.
The entire procedure can be completed in one to two hours.

Consultation

You will meet with either Dr. Turk or Dr. Lafer to go over your aesthetic goals and expectations of your procedure. They will then put together a customized treatment plan to achieve your desired results.

Sedation

A local anesthetic will be used to numb the treatment area. Our office also provides IV sedation so you can be relaxed and comfortable throughout your procedure.

Incisions

Your plastic surgeon will make either two incisions inside the nostrils for closed rhinoplasty or they will make two inside the nostrils and one outside for an open rhinoplasty.

Alterations

Once the incisions have been made, your plastic surgeon will have access to the bone and cartilage inside the nose. They will then reshape the nasal cartilage and bones, or in rare cases, add cartilage, to give your nose its desired look. They can also refine obstructed nasal passageways to improve breathing.

Splint

Once the nasal alterations are complete, your surgeon will close the incisions with sutures. Then bandages and a splint will be applied to protect your nose as it heals. You will likely wear a bandage for a week or less and a splint for one to two weeks.

Recovery

Side effects like bruising, bleeding, and soreness can last from one to two weeks and are normal. Most swelling will subside after about a month. Patients are generally able to return to their normal routine after eight weeks.

Before you consider scheduling a plastic surgery appointment for your child, you should know the minimum age they must be for this nasal procedure.

How Old Patients Should Be Before They Pursue a Rhinoplasty

A
Age Girls Should Wait for a Rhinoplasty: 15 or 16

Age Boys Should Wait for a Rhinoplasty: 16 or 17

The Importance of Waiting Until You Are Old Enough for a Rhinoplasty

For those who are insecure about their noses, it can be hard to wait even a day longer for their procedure.

Still, at certain ages, the nasal area is still developing, so a trusted doctor will not want to approach it with facial plastic surgery or a non-surgical rhinoplasty.

Even if your surgery is not cosmetic and is intended to treat a deviated septum, you will likely have to wait until your face has stopped growing and developing. This is ultimately a good thing.

After all, you do not want to embark on a permanent alteration if there is any risk that it will change or even potentially require a revision rhinoplasty.
