Defining Facial Features for Over Fifteen Years with Manhattan Rhinoplasty
Even the slightest changes to your nose can drastically alter your appearance, radically enhancing the beauty of your face. By making minor adjustments to your nose, you will see noticeable improvements in your profile and may even experience improved breathing. Nose reshaping surgery, also known as rhinoplasty, is a procedure we offer to patients in Manhattan, Long Island,New York City, and New York State. With this facial cosmetic surgery procedure Dr. Robert Freund can change the size, shape, and contour of your nose.
Nose reconstructive surgery is typically performed from inside your nose. Dr. Robert Freund sedates his patients using local or general anesthesia, then makes incisions inside the nostrils, sometimes incising the septum between the nostrils. By separating the skin from the underlying cartilage and bone, Dr. Freund can significantly improve the shape of the nasal bones and cartilage for a more desirable shape.
Types of Nasal Alterations
The goals for rhinoplasty surgery differ from patient to patient. If you have a large nose, a bump, a bulbous tip, or a wide nose, reduction may be in order. If you have a small nose or a nasal depression, or you need support to create an aesthetically pleasing nose, then augmentation using cartilage grafts or some other compound such as silicone or Porex may be the best option. Whatever your individual needs and goals, the primary objective of surgery will be to find the right key to unlock the right solution. Each procedure will be tailored to your needs and desires. No two noses are alike, and the surgical techniques will differ based on requirements.
To minimize excessive bleeding and swelling and ensure a safe recovery, Dr. Freund requires you to rest with your head propped upright and raised higher than your heart after surgery. Once the surgery is complete, a splint will be applied to the top of the nose and will stay in place for five to seven days for protection and to help minimize swelling. A small amount of bleeding and mucus drainage is quite common during the days following the procedure. In most cases, patients experience temporary swelling and bruising that can last for up to three weeks, immediately following their surgery. Dr. Freund predicts patients will see impeccable results within three to six months after undergoing rhinoplasty.
Nose surgery (also called rhinoplasty) refines the shape of the nose. Dr. Freund can use three different techniques for nose surgery depending on the patient. Dr. Freund doesn’t take a cookie-cutter approach to rhinoplasty. Each procedure is tailored to the individual to achieve their goals without losing their unique features.
