What is Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty is an aesthetic treatment to reshape the nose structure to create attractive facial harmony and balance. The surgery has the added benefit of improving breathing function when needed. Dr. Yee Cheng Low, Dr. James Romanelli and Dr. John Layliev are highly-experienced and talented plastic surgeons who have performed countless rhinoplasty surgeries in Long Island. They take a conservative approach in nose reshaping and are known for achieving very natural-looking results.

The Benefits of Rhinoplasty

While the corrections from a custom rhinoplasty are usually delicate, the results can bring out the beauty of your natural features. It can be life-changing to have an aesthetically appealing nose that brings balance to your features, looks natural, and functions properly. Call our office on Long Island to learn more.

A rhinoplasty, or “nose job,” at North Shore Cosmetic Surgery in Melville, NY, can be performed to resolve any of the following:

  • Overly large nose
  • Large nose tip
  • Hanging nose tip
  • A hump on the nose bridge
  • Overly-large, long, or wide nostrils
  • Flat nose bridge
  • Broken nose
  • Asymmetrical nose
  • Pinched nose tip
  • Unusually-shaped nose
  • Deviated septum

Ideal Candidates for Rhinoplasty in Long Island

Women, men, and adolescents are candidates for cosmetic nose surgery. If you are unhappy with the size and shape of your nose, it may require surgery, although some people can achieve results with nonsurgical rhinoplasty. The changes you want must be thoroughly discussed with us, as your facial appearance will be altered for the long-term. For nose reshaping surgery, facial growth must be completed, with girls often eligible at age 13 or 14, and boys at age 15 or 16.

How is Rhinoplasty Performed?

Rhinoplasty is performed under general anesthesia and is an outpatient procedure. At North Shore Cosmetic Surgery, we perform rhinoplasty with either an open or closed technique. The objective during treatment is to reduce or reshape the cartilage and to reduce and reposition bone if needed. In some cases, we build up the cartilage to create a more attractive look to a flatter bridge. The nose structure is reshaped, repositioned, and the skin redraped over the corrected framework.

What is the Recovery After a Nose Job?

Following rhinoplasty, you will first rest in our private recovery area, carefully monitored until you are given clearance to be driven home. Your nose and upper face will be bruised and swollen for a few days. In almost all patients, there is bruising and discoloration beneath the eyes. Ice packs and pain medication can assist with these effects.

Your follow-up appointment will typically occur within 48 to 72 hours after surgery to ensure your recovery is proceeding as it should. It generally takes about two weeks to recover from nose surgery. When in the recovery phase, strenuous activity must be avoided. Swelling may last several months or longer.

Nonsurgical Nose Job

Most often, a nose job requires surgery. However, using injectable fillers, like Restylane, a nonsurgical liquid rhinoplasty can produce similar, very attractive results. Restylane injections can increase height, straighten an unwanted curve, or fill in a minor imperfection.

New York plastic surgeon Dr. John Layliev is skilled in performing nonsurgical rhinoplasty using precise injection placements to create a balanced, natural look without incisions or sutures.

To learn if nonsurgical rhinoplasty with Restylane will help you achieve your aesthetic goals, schedule a consultation at our Med Spa in Melville, NY facility today.
