Preparing for Rhinoplasty

Analyzing your nose and creating an ideal plan for your procedure are the most important parts of your rhinoplasty surgery. At Allure Plastic Surgery in Staten Island, Dr. Miller and Dr. Heller will closely analyze your nose and use highly-advanced computer imaging to discuss the options for your surgery. Realistic expectations for the outcome of your procedure are key to achieving satisfactory results.

Allure Plastic Surgery

Dr. Miller and Dr. Heller use their years of experience performing and refining their rhinoplasty techniques to give each patient exceptional results. They’ve trained with nationally-recognized rhinoplasty surgeons and perform nose surgeries weekly, building a level of experience that allows them to concentrate on the intricate nature of the procedure and provide better results for you. Take a look at a couple of case studies below, for a good idea of the kind of improvements you can expect.

Rhinoplasty Nose Reshaping Examples

Nasal Bump, Droop Tip

This patient was dissatisfied with the hump and the fact that the tip pointed down. We removed the bump and sculpted the tip.

Crooked Nose

This patient desired a straighter nose, and to breathe easier. Her nose was corrected by altering the nasal bones and cartilage.

Wide Tip

This patient disliked the bulbous tip of their nose. We sculpted the nasal cartilage to refine the shape, altering it in a subtle, natural way.

Different Types of Rhinoplasty

Everyone's nose is different, and so is every rhinoplasty procedure. For a primary rhinoplasty procedure, the skin is easily lifted with hidden incisions and the cartilage is sculpted, before the skin is redraped and your incisions are carefully closed. We also offer other types of rhinoplasty, depending on your individual needs

Revision Rhinoplasty

When your surgery with another surgeon did not produce satisfactory results. Scar tissue from your first surgery makes revision rhinoplasty more difficult. Dr. Miller and Dr. Heller may need to correct the removal of too much cartilage to give your nose a natural appearance instead of one that looks "operated on."

Open or Closed Rhinoplasty

Open rhinoplasty allows Dr. Miller and Dr. Heller to make a small incision between the nostrils, instead of just inside the nose as with closed rhinoplasty. The open technique allows for more visibility and precision during surgery. The small scar from the incision disappears over time.

Rhinoplasty with Sinus Surgery or Septoplasty

Surgery to correct chronic sinus conditions or breathing issues can be combined with rhinoplasty to enhance the appearance of your nose at the same time. Dr. Miller specializes in surgery on the inside and outside of the nose and performs this combination regularly. Insurance may even cover the sinus surgery.

Non Surgical Rhinoplasty

Although surgery will give you the best results, we recognize that some patients are not ready for plastic surgery. You can achieve some enhancements with the dermal filler Radiesse®, which can be used to give your nose a smoother profile. Radiesse® treatments generally last nine to 12 months.

Special Considerations

During your consultation, we'll discuss special considerations for your procedure. Dr. Miller and Dr. Heller will consider all of these nuances when creating your surgical plan and performing your surgery so that your enhanced nose will blend naturally with your features.

Male vs. Female Rhinoplasty

Female noses tend to have a softer bridge and a slightly higher tip, while male noses have stronger bridges and lower tips. Recognizing and being sensitive to these differences during your procedure will ensure that your nose presents the feminine or masculine qualities that you desire.

Ethnic Characteristics

Different ethnic groups, such as Asians or African-Americans, will often have a flat nasal bridge or wider nostrils. Enhancing the bridge of the nose can de-emphasize the tip, and sculpting or thinning the nostril or tip can improve the nose shape while maintaining the ethnic appearance.

Recovering from Rhinoplasty

Recovering from rhinoplasty is often marked by only mild discomfort and mild congestion. Patients usually do not need strong medications for pain management. You can expect to have your splint and stitches removed in six days, and most patients return to work and normal activities in one week. You will want to avoid strenuous activities for two weeks following your surgery.

Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty

Reshape your nose in only a matter of minutes.

With the use of dermal fillers, a droopy tip or a bump along the bridge of your nose can be corrected. Some of these fillers are even long-lasting, such as Voluma.
This procedure has become very popular in the last few years and patients can actually see what their nose will look like prior to any surgical procedure.

Rhinoplasty FAQ

Is anesthesia my only option for rhinoplasty or can I have oral sedation?

General anesthesia puts you in a state of relaxation. You won't feel anything during your surgery and won't remember anything about your surgery. It also protects the airway from any blood that may drip down the throat during surgery. Oral or IV sedation can pose a risk to you and your procedure because you may move or cough, which can compromise your airway. Your safety is important to us. We will review your options during your consultation.

What causes changes in nose swelling after rhinoplasty?

Changes in swelling are completely normal following your nose job and may last up to a year. You may have times when your nose looks amazing and wake up the next day to find it has swollen again. This is caused by the nasal skin reestablishing its drainage pathways. Massaging your nose can help reduce swelling and increase the speed of recovery.

How long does swelling last after rhinoplasty?

You can expect swelling after your nose surgery. It is completely normal and may take a few weeks to subside and begin to reveal your results. You may experience episodes of swelling up to a full year after your surgery.

How soon after nose surgery can I try to get pregnant?

While you are on pain medication and antibiotics following your surgery, you will want to refrain from trying to get pregnant. We recommend waiting a week after you are finished with your medications. You may also want to talk to your obstetrician or primary physician for his or her recommendation.

Why do my nostrils look like they are different sizes after surgery?

In the early stages of recovery, you will experience swelling that could cause one nostril to look larger than the other. The case or dressing on your nose may also be compressing one side more. During your post-operative visit with your surgeon, be sure to raise your concerns so he or she can determine that you are healing as planned.

Does a bad smell mean I have an infection?

Crusting around the sutures is a normal occurrence for up to three weeks after surgery. It may cause a strange odor for up to two months following your surgery. Infections are a rare occurrence, but you can schedule an appointment with your surgeon to examine the area if you are experiencing an odor and get all of your questions answered about your recovery.

Can I work outside after nose surgery if I use sunscreen?

Yes. Sunscreen will protect the sensitive skin of your nose after surgery. Be especially vigilant in applying sunscreen to cover the incision site because the sun can cause discoloration of the skin. In the first few weeks following your surgery, you should be careful to avoid strenuous activities, especially any kind of sports that put your nose in danger of being hit, which can cause permanent damage.

Can I have a nose job and play violent sports?

Rhinoplasty will require a few weeks of recovery time. You should not play strenuous or violent sports while your nose is healing. After you have fully healed, your bones will return to close to normal strength. However, a direct hit to the nose could cause a fracture that would require additional surgery and recovery time.
