Goals of Rhinoplasty

Dr. Avraham typically uses nose reshaping surgery to achieve the following goals:
Improve breathing = address structural issues that cause difficulty breathing (e.g. deviated septum).

During your initial nose surgery consultation in New York, Dr. Avraham will listen to your concerns and discuss your goals before creating an individualized treatment plan.

Types of Rhinoplasty Procedures

Dr. Avraham uses rhinoplasty cosmetic surgery to achieve specific goals. Depending on your needs, the rhinoplasty surgeon may utilize any of the following techniques:

Multidisciplinary Approach: Nasal Sinus Expertise

Rhinoplasty may sometimes involve the sinuses. In such situations, Dr. Avraham may collaborate closely with ENT specialists. Their expertise in sinuses combined with his expertise in nasal structures ensures that the procedure effectively addresses functional and aesthetic issues.

Combining Procedures: Chin Implants

If your chin is weak, it may draw attention away from your new nose or make it appear larger. A chin implant creates better balance by adding definition to your jawline, perfectly complementing your nose job. This helps achieve a sharper profile and a more sculpted look overall. Dr. Avraham will carefully choose the right implant size to ensure a natural appearance that enhances your features.

Adolescent Rhinoplasty

Facial growth should be nearly complete at 16-18 for females and 19-23 for males. Dr. Avraham uses specialized nose-reshaping techniques to complement the developing features of adolescent patients. Emotional maturity is key, so teens should be motivated by their own desire for change. If you are interested in an adolescent nose job, schedule a consultation to discuss your goals, assess development, and answer any questions.

What to Expect

Your rhinoplasty journey starts with a consultation. Dr. Avraham will discuss your goals, examine your features, and create a personalized plan for your dream nose. The surgeon’s office will guide you through pre-operative steps for a smooth surgery. On the day of the surgery, an anesthesiologist will administer anesthesia to keep you comfortable. The surgeon creates an incision based on the rhinoplasty technique selected and uses it to trim, sculpt, or reposition the nasal bone or cartilage. If your septum is deviated and contributes to breathing problems or affects facial symmetry, a septoplasty may be performed to straighten it. Dissolvable stitches or small sutures are used to close the incisions, and splints may be placed inside or outside the nose for support and proper healing. You’ll be monitored in Dr. Avraham’s recovery before going home. The entire procedure takes 1 – 4 hours, depending on the complexity.

Your Rhinoplasty Recovery

You may expect some swelling and bruising around your nose and eyes, which typically peaks within the first few days and gradually subsides over the following weeks. Dr. Avraham’s office will provide specific instructions on pain management, medication, and incision care. You need to rest as much as possible and keep your head elevated to help minimize swelling. Dr. Avraham will advise you on when to resume regular activities (including exercise). Most patients are able to resume social activities within a couple of weeks, but it may take a few months for the swelling to resolve and final results to become fully visible.

Patient Results

Your new nose definition takes shape once healing is complete and the swelling has completely subsided. It may be a few months and up to a year for final results to fully emerge. Remember that everyone heals at their own pace. Dr. Avraham’s office will be available to monitor your progress and answer any questions you may have at every step.

Cost of Rhinoplasty

The cost of rhinoplasty in NYC will vary from one patient to the other. Typical costs of nose reshaping cosmetic plastic surgery in New York range from $9,000 to $21,000. More complex rhinoplasty procedures may cost as much as $30,000 or more. Health insurers help pay for rhinoplasty that is considered to be medically necessary. Otherwise, you’ll need to pay for elective cosmetic nose reshaping.
