Rhinoplasty (Nose Job)

Rhinoplasty (Nose Job) Surgery in New York

You probably call this very popular form of surgery a “nose job surgery” but most surgeons prefer the medical term, rhinoplasty. Rhinoplasty obviously has cosmetic aspects, as the nose is among our most pronounced facial features. At the same time, however, the nose is also an important sensory organ that is crucial for breathing.

Dagan MD is here to ensure your rhinoplasty is performed by the finest board-certified and fellowship-trained surgeon in New York. Our physician is fully committed to providing the best possible results in terms of both your appearance and your overall health and well-being and has been selected as one of the leading surgeons in his specialty across the globe.

A rhinoplasty is a complex procedure that calls on all the talents of a facial plastic surgeon. From the ability to sculpt a nose that is attractive in combination with the rest of your facial features, to being able to work with the interior structures of the nose so that the patient’s breathing and sense of smell are at their best. The term facial plastic surgeon is distinct and different from general plastic surgeon. Facial plastic surgeons undergo training as Ear, Nose, and Throat (ENT) specialists first followed by fellowship specialization in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery. Dr. Dagan has completed two post-specialty fellowships in skull base and craniomaxillary surgery as well as facial plastic and reconstructive surgery. Dr. Dagan is the first surgeon to develop 3-D printing technology to recreate cartilaginous parts for nasal; reconstruction and has been featured nationally on TV as well as in the print media for his work in 2015.

The roots of rhinoplasties go back to ancient India, but the renowned Dr. Tal Dagan is on top of the latest advancements in this fast moving field. In particular, rhinoplasty recovery is often far more rapid than it was just a few years ago and our surgeon can ensure that your new nose is functional and ready for public display in the least possible time. That’s not all, in some cases, non-surgical rhinoplasty may be an option. In these non-invasive procedures, the shape of the nose can be changed simply through injections.

Corrects: Size or shape of nose.
Length of Procedure: 1-2 hours
Number of Treatments: 1
Longevity: Permanent
Recovery Time: Within 1 week-10 days

Of course, no two noses are exactly alike, and deciding which type of rhinoplasty you need is a matter to discuss with a qualified facial plastic surgeon. Our outstanding facial plastic surgeon will be delighted to meet with you for a rhinoplasty consultation.

For patients who are concerned with the cost of a rhinoplasty; while some rhinoplasty procedures may be deemed medically necessary, strictly cosmetic operations are not usually covered by medical insurance. Our highly knowledgeable consultants will be happy to discuss how procedures not covered by insurance can still be made very affordable, even on a budget, and what costs may be covered by insurance if any.

Rhinoplasty (Nose Job Surgery) Before and After

The Transformation

Benefits of a Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty is one of the most commonly performed types of reconstructive surgeries, meant to restructure nose shape for both medical and cosmetic reasons. There are two primary types of rhinoplasty surgeries:

  • Reconstructive rhinoplasty surgery to restore nasal function after injury
  • Cosmetic rhinoplasty surgery to improve facial structure and restore a youthful appearance

Our team of expert surgeons at Dagan MD can help with both types of rhinoplasty in New York, to achieve a subtle, natural look for your reconstruction. Patients who undergo rhinoplasty report improved self-confidence and a more youthful, rejuvenated self-outlook. Rhinoplasty can benefit cosmetic surgery patients looking to:

  • Increase or decrease nose size
  • Reduce nasal tip or bridge
  • Reshape or resize nostrils
  • Create greater harmony in facial structure

It can also be a great choice for reconstructive surgery patients looking to:

  • Restructure nasal birth defects
  • Correct breathing problems such as a deviated septum
  • Improve breathing problems from airway restriction
  • Improve on the effects and appearances of past failed rhinoplasties

No matter your reason for surgery, rhinoplasty can take years off your appearance and restore you to healthy breathing in no time.

The Rhinoplasty in New York Procedure

Reconstructive rhinoplasty seeks to correct various types of nasal injuries and malformations, including injuries caused by blunt and penetrating traumas. Reconstructive types of rhinoplasty are commonly used to correct medical problems like deviated septums, chronic sinus conditions, birth defects, and other airway obstructions that negatively impact quality of breathing. By contrast, cosmetic rhinoplasty seeks to improve general nasal structure and facial harmony, filling in lost collagen due to aging and creating a more youthful overall facial appearance. Common types of cosmetic rhinoplasty may involve removal of nasal bumps, changes to the angle between the nose and mouth, and injection of nasal fillers.

There are two main types of rhinoplasty surgeries: closed and open rhinoplasty. Open rhinoplasties create incisions under the nasal tip, allowing for more complete access to nasal structures for more comprehensive shaping. This type of rhinoplasty is recommended for patients looking for more extensive reshaping and can make scars nearly inconspicuous by hiding them in the nose’s natural contours. By contrast, closed rhinoplasty is recommended for simpler forms of reconstruction, leaving no scarring at all, since incisions are made within the nostril.

For either type of rhinoplasty, Dagan MD’s dedicated team of facial plastic surgeons will work to reconstruct a facially-proportionate nasal appearance by separating nasal skin and soft tissue and correcting facial tissue for form and function. After surgery, you can be assured that your surgical incisions will heal quickly and properly from the use of sutures, tissue glue, and application of a package or stent. Since all rhinoplasties are highly individualized surgeries, you can count on the team at Dagan MD to work with you every step of the way, discussing desired outcomes and adapting to your unique nasal anatomy.

Are You a Candidate for a Rhinoplasty?

Up until just a few years ago, rhinoplasty was often considered a luxury reserved for wealthy plastic surgery candidates. But thanks to rapid advancements in the field spearheaded by Dr. Tal Dagan, both surgical and non-surgical rhinoplasty have become an option for patients with a variety of budget needs and desired outcomes. The use of non-invasive rhinoplasty techniques and unique field advancements like 3D printing mockups has made rhinoplasty a quick and easy procedure for rhinoplasty candidates in New York.

Because rhinoplasty is a highly individualized procedure, candidates should consider their personalized rhinoplasty needs before consulting. You may be a good candidate for rhinoplasty in NYC if:

  • Your adult facial growth is complete
  • Your all-around physical health is average or above average
  • You don’t smoke
  • You have realistic goals for appearance improvements and are looking for a boost in self-confidence, not a desire to fit an idealized image

The Rhinoplasty Recovery Process

After your rhinoplasty surgery is completed, you may be fitted for a splint or package, which will be placed inside or outside your nasal cavity to protect the healing of your new nasal structures. Initial swelling typically subsides within 10 to 14 days after surgery, though you may experience gradual changes in the contour of your nose shape for up to a year as your new nasal contour sets and refines. Experiencing swelling, particularly swelling that worsens in the morning, is typical for up to a year following rhinoplasty.

Dr. Tal Dagan will provide you with specific instructions for care following your rhinoplasty (nose job) surgery, including instructions for care for the surgical site as it heals. You’ll be prescribed oral or topical medication to help reduce pain, quicken healing, and minimize the potential for scar infection. You’ll also have the opportunity to discuss specific post-surgery concerns with Dr. Tal Dagan and our Patient Care Coordinator and follow up in the weeks after surgery to check on healing progress. Your recovery time, including removal of dressing after surgery and return to normal activities, will depend on the individual needs of your surgery and how extensive your procedure will be.

Rhinoplasty (Nose Job Surgery) Risks

Just like any major surgical procedure, rhinoplasty carries typical risks like:

  • Infection
  • Bleeding
  • Adverse reaction to anesthesia

Risks unique to rhinoplasty include effects such as:

  • Temporary or permanent numbness in the nasal area
  • Temporary or permanent difficulty breathing through the nasal cavity
  • Persistent pain, swelling, or discoloration
  • Scarring of nasal skin or tissue
  • Septal perforation
  • Disfiguration or other complications

If you’ve been disfigured by a previously botched rhinoplasty, Dr. Tal Dagan can help you regain your confidence and return your facial harmony. Our advanced 3D imaging techniques and careful attention to detail can correct rhinoplasty mistakes and get you back to feeling and looking your best.
