Rhinoplasty is among the five most commonly performed cosmetic surgeries in the United States. During the treatment, Dr. Espinoza reshapes the cartilage and the bone of the nose to achieve an individual’s preferred appearance. For men and women unhappy with the shape or size of their noses, rhinoplasty provides a safe, effective, and reliable cosmetic remedy. When done by a skilled, proficient surgeon, such as Dr. Espinoza, rhinoplasty can significantly enhance the balance of facial attributes, helping clients uncover newfound confidence. 

What Rhinoplasty Can Address

Nose surgery in Manhattan can help our patients address:

  • Nose size and restoring facial balance and symmetry
  • Nose size at the bridge or in the dimension and also placement of the nostrils
  • Noses with noticeable bulges or clinical depressions on the bridge
  • A nasal suggestion that is bigger or spheric, drooping, or upturned
  • Nostrils that are flared, large, or upturned
  • Nasal crookedness

Types of Rhinoplasty 

Reduction Rhinoplasty

Reduction rhinoplasty is one of the most common nose reshaping procedures. This surgery helps patients by creating a more proportional nose to their other facial features. This is achieved by addressing bumps on the bridge of the nose and extended nasal tip or flared nostrils. During the procedure, areas of bone or cartilage will be sculpted to create the perfect shape.

Augmentation Rhinoplasty

Augmentation rhinoplasty is another popular treatment. During this surgery, bone or cell grafting is performed on the nasal tip or bridge. This can help straighten the area and add volume to areas where there may be depressions or other issues.

Post-Traumatic Rhinoplasty

If an individual has suffered an injury to the nose, they may take advantage of post-traumatic rhinoplasty in Manhattan. Patients can use this treatment to correct the nose and remedy the nasal septum. Commonly, post-traumatic individuals have suffered a broken nose. If an individual has experienced a significant nose injury, they might need to wait several months before undergoing a comprehensive surgical procedure.

Reconstructive Rhinoplasty

Patients might require reconstructive rhinoplasty if they have lost all or part of their noses to an injury, skin cancer, or another major illness. A specialist reconstructs the nose during the surgery using skin grafts, flap techniques, and other innovative approaches. Due to the intricate nature of this procedure, patients might need multiple surgical treatments over several months. 

Adolescent Rhinoplasty

Most of the time, medical professionals recommend teen patients wait until their noses have stopped growing before receiving a rhinoplasty. There are exemptions, specifically in situations of trauma or breathing problems. When young patients undergo rhinoplasty, it requires a dedicated medical professional who can safeguard the still delicate nasal features. Furthermore, a medical professional should ensure that the patient is psychologically ready for the procedure.

Aging Rhinoplasty

Although the nose stops growing around age 16, the shape may transform over time. Areas may start to droop, or the nasal passages might tighten, triggering breathing problems. With aging rhinoplasty, a surgeon can alleviate these concerns to make breathing more manageable and offer a patient a more youthful, renewed look.

Ethnic Rhinoplasty

Ethnic rhinoplasty utilizes the same techniques as other nose reshaping surgeries but is designed for specific ethnic demographics. Generally, ethnic rhinoplasty describes treatments performed on African American, Afro-Caribbean, Oriental, Hispanic, and Middle Eastern descent. These patients usually have softer nasal shapes, and the surgeon should take special care to protect these unique attributes. 

Rhinoplasty Recovery

After your rhinoplasty in Manhattan, you should expect several weeks of recovery. Dr. Espinoza will provide recovery instructions to help you recover quickly and achieve the best aesthetic results.

Most patients can return to work within two weeks of their surgical treatments. However, they should continue to refrain from more strenuous activities.

Rhinoplasty FAQ

How long until I see the results?

Will there be scarring?

What if I am not pleased with the outcome?

How long until I see the results?

Rhinoplasty is unique in that the surgery outcomes can take up to one year to be fully visible. Side effects such as swelling and bruising around the nose and eyes can impede the appearance of the nose for the first two to three weeks. While more noticeable modifications may be visible in the first weeks following surgery, the majority of people will require several months to see the result.

Will there be scarring?

Similar to most forms of plastic surgery, there is a possibility for scarring during rhinoplasty. In shut rhinoplasty, all lacerations are made inside the nostrils and will not leave behind any noticeable scars. In open nose surgery, an additional laceration made across the columella (the midline column of the nose between the nostrils) may leave a small scar. Fortunately, due to the size and location of the incision, this is generally unnoticeable.

What if I am not pleased with the outcome?

Unfortunately, regardless of a cosmetic surgeon’s effort, sometimes, a patient may not be satisfied with the outcome of their surgery. This can be due to several causes, including surgical errors or unrealistic expectations from the patient. Since rhinoplasty results can take up to a year to develop, patients should not panic if they are unhappy with the form in the initial few months. If a patient is dissatisfied with the nose after the final form, there are options for treatment and adjustment, including revision surgery.
