Nose Surgery (Rhinoplasty)
Surgery of the nose is one of the most common cosmetic procedures performed on patients of all ages, for both men and women. If you have had an injury to your nose, or you were blessed with a family nose you desire to change, cosmetic surgery of the nose will help you.
Your appearance can be dramatically improved as the nose is refined to complement your facial features. Please contact Dr. Steven Yarinsky to schedule a consultation for rhinoplasty (nose reshaping surgery).
Who is a Candidate?
- Your nose appears abnormal as a result of birth defects, injury, or disease.
- Your nose has grown larger as you have aged and makes you look old.
- Your nose is cosmetically unattractive or does not “fit” with other facial features.
- A more attractive nasal shape. Nose in better proportion to your other facial features.
Real Patients, Real Results
24 year old who desired a more refined nose tip, a narrower nose, and to reduce a mild “hump”. Note that no scar is present across the columella (skin between the nostrils) since Dr. Yarinsky used incisions within the nostrils to reshape her nose.
View More Patient Results
- Nose reshaping is done in Dr Yarinsky’s office facility as an outpatient using sedation, local or general anesthesia.
- STANDARD RHINOPLASTY: Incisions are made inside the nostrils. The nasal bones, cartilage, and soft tissues are reshaped to improve the external contour.
- OPEN RHINOPLASTY: Frequently used for difficult or more involved nose reshaping. One external incision is made across the columella (strut between the nostrils). Bones, cartilage, and soft tissues are reshaped under direct vision.
- TIP-PLASTY: If only the nasal tip is abnormal, it may be corrected with either a standard or external (open) approach.
Large nostrils are reduced using tiny incisions at the outer base of the nostrils.
Recuperation and Healing
- An external cast or splint is placed on your nose. Your nose may be packed For up to five days. The cast or splint is usually removed in a week.
- Discomfort is easily controlled with oral medication.
- Most swelling and bruising subsides gradually over three weeks.
- External sutures (if any) are removed within a week. Internal sutures dissolve.
- The 90% point of healing and result occurs at two months. The final result Is seen in a year.
- Additional procedures that may enhance your result are cheek and chin enlargements, and ear reshaping.
- In older people, a facelift may be combined with nose reshaping.
- If you need to improve breathing, correction of a deviated septum (septoplasty), or turbinate treatment may also be done at the some time. Large turbinates are the most common cause of breathing difficulty.
The specific risks and the suitability of this procedure for you can be determined only at the time of your consultation with Dr. Yarinsky. All surgical procedures have some degree of risk. Minor complications that do not affect the outcome occur occasionally. Major complications are unusual. Most people are very happy with the results but no specific result can be guaranteed.
