Nose Job in NYC: How to Ensure Fantastic Results

Ava Lawson | August 2, 2013 | Posted in Rhinoplasty Surgery

What do lovely women like Halle Berry, Blake Lively, Jennifer Anniston and Winona Ryder all have in common?  Each has had a very good nose job at some point in their lives. Whether for medical reasons or pure aesthetics, the final outcome was the same – natural results that boosted their self confidence (and perhaps their careers!)

Take a second to think about your nose. Are you happy with it? You should be since it’s one of your face’s most prominent features. A nose gets noticed, for good or for bad. While no sniffer is flawless, cosmetic imperfections (bumps or wide nasal tips) may chip away at a person’s self-confidence. Others may suffer the effects of a deviated septum – making breathing incredibly difficult. And some people may have had a rhinoplasty before, but were left with disastrous results due to poor surgical technique or general inexperience.

If you are contemplating a nose job or revision rhinoplasty NYC you may be wondering about some of the benefits. Here are just a few to ponder:

  • Boosted self confidence
  • Improved breathing
  • Better facial symmetry
  • Enhanced and more flattering nose shape
  • Correction of any prior nasal trauma

Nose job NYC: important considerations

Let’s say that you’ve decided on having rhinoplasty. The time has come for a new and improved you. Perhaps you want a more sculpted nasal tip, smaller nostrils, or to get rid of that bump from a sports accident years ago. If the appearance or functionality of your nose has been bothering you forever and generating self-consciousness, a nose job might be the answer as long as you have realistic expectations and the surgery is performed by skilled plastic surgeon.

In most cases, it’s highly unusual for patients to have a nose job before the age of 18 as the body is still growing and significant changes will continue through your early 20’s.

Never base your decision on price, as a good plastic surgeon NYC is worth his weight in gold. Avoid clinics that advertise free consultations or special deals on cosmetic packages, and always have an in-depth discussion with your prospective surgeon about your concerns. Your surgeon should be board certified and offer glowing recommendations from past patients who were pleased with their rhinoplasty outcomes.

What to expect after rhinoplasty

  • Swelling: moderate inflammation around the eyes and nose is common after a nose job. While the majority of this will subside within two weeks of the procedure, residual swelling can last for several months.
  • Bruising: Mild to severe bruising after rhinoplasty is to be expected. This should gradually begin to resolve in three days and be gone after 2 weeks.
  • Pain: As with any type of surgery, some level of pain is normal after the procedure. Your surgeon may prescribe medication to help minimize your discomfort, which should only last a few days to a week.
