Thinking About Having Nose Surgery?

Your Rhinoplasty


Ideal Candidates

  • Patients considering rhinoplasty should be in good health and have realistic expectations about their results
  • Teenage candidates should have fully developed facial features, which usually occurs between 15 and 17 years of age
  • Potential candidates are looking to improve the size or shape of their nose

Techniques

  • Open rhinoplasty - TriBeCa Plastic Surgery makes an inconspicuous incision underneath the nose along the columella
    • This technique allows for more significant and precise changes to the nasal structures
  • Closed rhinoplasty - TriBeCa Plastic Surgery makes all incisions inside the nostrils
    • While this technique doesn’t result in scarring, alterations may be limited
  • Septoplasty - Cartilage is removed, and the septum is repositioned to improve a deviated septum
  • Turbinectomy - The partial or complete removal of the turbinate bones to remove nasal obstructions

Results

  • Your results will be visible within six to eight weeks
  • Minor swelling may last for several months
  • Results are long lasting, and most patients attain lifelong satisfaction with their nasal appearance
  • Patients should avoid exposure to direct sunlight during recovery
  • To ensure satisfactory results, treat your nose gently for several months following your recovery, as some tenderness may persist
  • Every rhinoplasty is customized to the patient for results that best highlight their facial appearance

Frequently Asked Questions


A. TriBeCa Plastic Surgery will determine if your child has reached facial maturity during their consultation. It is important that teens only undergo rhinoplasty with full developed facial features because additional growth after surgery can affect the quality of their results.
A. Many people with a larger nose will find that they have the appearance of a receding chin. In some cases, a chin implant may be needed to create a more prominent and balanced chin.
Most patients can resume their regular exercise routine after three weeks. However, due to the sensitivity of your nose, you may wish to wait several more weeks before engaging in contact sports.
