Introduction to Rhinoplasty (Nose Surgery)

If you have had life-long self-consciousness about the appearance of your nose, a commonly performed plastic surgery procedure by Dr. Zuckerman can adjust nasal shape and have a positive effect on the entire facial aesthetic. Rhinoplasty (nose surgery) can decrease or increase nose size, reduce the bridge or tip, and even alter the shape of the nostrils. Rhinoplasty, also referred to as nose resculpting, can also help those with nasal breathing problems. Dr. Zuckerman can resculpt your nose and bring it into better balance and harmony with other facial features. He has been specialty-trained in facial plastic surgery procedures at some of the most prestigious medical institutions in the world including Brown University and NYU. Dr. Zuckerman is also highly skilled with revision (secondary) rhinoplasty for patients who are dissatisfied with the results from a previous nose surgery performed at another facility. Dr. Zuckerman offers safe, effective nose surgery procedures designed to help you attain your goals with natural-looking results.

Am I A Candidate For Rhinoplasty (Nose Surgery)?



Dr. Zuckerman’s rhinoplasty is designed to help those who have a nose that is: too small or too large for the face; off-center or crooked; asymmetrical due to prior injury; afflicted with bumps or depressions; exhibiting excessively flared nostrils. Patients who may benefit from nose surgery can also be those who have a nasal tip that droops, or that is enlarged or too thick. Those who need correction of a deviated septum may also benefit from this procedure. Female patients are typically at least 14 years old, and males at least 15 years old.

Rhinoplasty (Nose Surgery) in Detail

Rhinoplasty, or nose sculpting surgery, can involve a number of different techniques to achieve the desired results. Traditional procedures involve incisions made along the outside, or inside, of the nostrils. This allows for scarring that is barely visible, if visible at all, to others. The nasal bone and cartilage is separated and reshaped to meet your ultimate treatment goals. Dr. Zuckerman then closes the incisions, and a splint is added to the nose to help it retain its new shape. In some cases gauze may be packed into the nostrils temporarily to hold the septum in position and control bleeding.

Nose sculpting surgery generally takes about three hours or less to complete under general anesthesia. This procedure can be performed as an outpatient.

Nose surgery can often be combined with facial implant procedures such as chin augmentation or cosmetic injectable treatments for a more complete makeover and an even better balancing of the facial aesthetic.

Rhinoplasty Revision Surgery

If you are dissatisfied with a previous rhinoplasty procedure, Dr. Zuckerman can help. Revision procedures are very complex and require the extraordinary skills and abilities offered by specialty-trained Dr. Zuckerman. The procedure typically involves the reconstruction and reshaping of cartilage and bone with grafts taken from the ear or the rib. Care is taken to ensure that proper breathing function is restored and/or your aesthetic goals are achieved. Procedure time will vary on the extent of treatment that is necessary; however, secondary rhinoplasty procedures typically take longer than primary rhinoplasty procedures to complete.

Nose surgery can be performed at Dr. Zuckerman’s state-of-the-art operating room located in midtown Manhattan. This operating facility is certified by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities, Inc. (AAAASF), a distinction which signifies the highest standard of care. It also allows Dr. Zuckerman to guarantee private, confidential, convenient care to his cosmetic patients.

Rhinoplasty (Nose Surgery) Recovery



Elevation of the head is crucial for at least a week following surgery, and any heavy lifting or strenuous activity should be avoided for at least three weeks. It is imperative that the nose be protected from potential harm in the weeks after surgery. Patients should expect swelling and bruising in the nasal area for several days after the procedure; however, swelling should be about 75 percent diminished after about a month. Any pain during recovery can be alleviated with medication. Patients should not blow their nose for at least a week after nose surgery in order to facilitate the healing process. Nasal packing will be removed after a few days, and normal daily activities can typically resume after about a week.

Frequently Asked Questions About Rhinoplasty (Nose Surgery)



Below are the answers to some questions Dr. Zuckerman most frequently receives from prospective patients. If you don’t see your question below, feel free to contact Dr. Zuckerman’s office, and a member of his staff will be glad to reach out to you.

• Can I combine nose surgery and face lift?
Yes, this is technically possible, but it isn’t commonly done. A face lift on its own is three to four hours of surgery, so the combination would require a long operation.

• Are there non-surgical options to improve my nose’s appearance?
If you wish to improve the linearity of your nose’s profile, Dr. Zuckerman can perform a non-surgical rhinoplasty using lJuvederm to reduce the prominence of a dorsal hump.
