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 serving Manhattan and Lenox Hill, 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.

My experience with Dr. Turk was very pleasant. I had a closed rhinoplasty and he made me feel a sense of trust and confidence from my consultation through my post op appointment. He listened to what I wanted, provided his advice & did not push for anything that was not needed. I can’t wait to be 100% healed and for the results to keep getting better. Thank you!

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

Rhinoplasty can 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.

Types of Rhinoplasty We Can Perform for New York City Patients

Open rhinoplasty incisions

Open Rhinoplasty

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

Closed rhinoplasty incisions

Closed Rhinoplasty

Closed rhinoplasty is a minimally invasive version of this surgery in which Dr. Turk 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.

Nose with injectable

Nonsurgical 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, results can last 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 can reconstruct and reshape the framework of the nose to achieve results that satisfy the patient's desires.

Renew Your Confidence With a Revision Rhinoplasty

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 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 for our Long Island, Manhattan, and Lenox Hill patients. 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.


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


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.


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


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


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.


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

How Old Patients Should Be Before They Pursue Rhinoplasty

Girls should be 15 or 16 and boys should be 16 or 17 before they can undergo rhinoplasty
Before you consider scheduling a plastic surgery appointment for your child, you should know the minimum age they must be for this nasal procedure. Our New York practice always prioritizes patient safety.

The Importance of Waiting

Until You Are Old Enough for Rhinoplasty

For those who are insecure about their nose, 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 wait to perform facial plastic surgery or a nonsurgical rhinoplasty.

Even if your surgery is not cosmetic and is intended to treat a deviated septum and breathing problems, you will likely have to wait until your face has stopped growing. This is ultimately a good thing because you do not want to undergo an alteration if there is any risk that your results will change or require a revision rhinoplasty in the future.

We understand your desire to make a change and are still happy to provide more information during a consultation.

Avoid Touch-Ups by Choosing Dr. Turk

According to The Rhinoplasty Society, approximately 15% of all rhinoplasties require post-surgery touch-ups. This can in some cases be caused by unavoidable nose swelling that complicates the already complex procedure.

As a double board-certified plastic surgeon with almost four decades of experience, Lenox Hill-based Dr. Turk knows how to precisely plan and execute rhinoplasty operations that minimize the need for any touch-ups.

Dr. Turk Can Use Dermal Fillers to Provide Results Similar to a Surgical Nose Job

In most cases, a surgical procedure is the best way to achieve a drastic nose transformation. However, some patients do not require surgery to obtain the beautiful nose they envision. After getting to know your goals during a thorough consultation at his offices serving Lenox Hill and all of New York City, Dr. Turk may recommend what is colloquially known as a liquid rhinoplasty. 

A liquid rhinoplasty refers to the usage of dermal fillers to reshape the nose. Typically, this is achieved through a hyaluronic acid filler like Restylane® or JUVÉDERM®. 

Unlike some other rhinoplasty procedures which are performed to lessen the prominence of the nose, a liquid rhinoplasty is carried out to create a more prominent profile. To create this effect, Dr. Turk injects fillers into the bridge of the nose to give it more definition and height. 

The Best Results Are Achieved Through Surgery

While the results of dermal fillers administered at our offices serving Lenox Hill, Manhattan, and all of Long Island can be dramatic and immediately noticeable, it is important that you know they will not be permanent. To receive the longest-lasting transformation possible, you will need a surgical procedure. To determine exactly what you need to receive the nose you have always envisioned, reach out to our expert surgeon.
