Who is a good candidate for a rhinoplasty?

If you're looking for one of the best rhinoplasty surgeons in NYC, Lee Ann M. Klausner, M.D. is one of the most highly sought-after. A rhinoplasty, also called a nose job, is the surgical reconstruction of the nose. Patients often consider rhinoplasty when they've been in an accident or have been displeased with the shape or symmetry of their nose for other reasons. Many individuals with various functional and/or cosmetic concerns could be good candidates for rhinoplasty. Additionally, individuals who have breathing issues, oftentimes due to prior trauma to the area, also consider rhinoplasty to improve their quality of life and appearance. However, rhinoplasties are more complicated than just making the nose look smaller or straighter. There needs to be a balance between the nose and other facial features, and they need to complement each other in order to achieve a natural-looking result. Dr. Klausner’s knowledge, keen sense of facial symmetry, and artistry make her an expert at rhinoplasties and achieving natural results. At the Klausner Institute in Upper East Side, Manhattan, New York, NY, we believe that if your motivations are met by realistic expectations and your procedure is performed by a skillful and qualified rhinoplasty surgeon, rhinoplasty can potentially make a very positive impact on both your appearance and your overall confidence.

Is rhinoplasty for teens?

Ideally, nose surgery should be performed on teens and young adults as opposed to waiting until later in life. Like with dental braces, corrective measures to one’s appearance are best done before reaching full adulthood. The numbers support this frame of mind as well. With more than 200,000 nose surgeries performed in 2013, rhinoplasty was the second most popular surgical procedure in the United States, behind only breast augmentations. Of that group, 14% of the participants were teenagers between the ages of 13 and 19, making it by far the most popular surgery among that age group. A large, tiny, or asymmetrical nose can have a dramatic impact on your facial aesthetic. After all, the nose is like the centerpiece that brings the entire face together. For many, a disproportionate nose can be a problem for self-confidence. Teenage rhinoplasty (nose job) can reshape the nose in order to achieve a more balanced appearance.

What Can I Expect After A Rhinoplasty?

After your nose surgery, you will be carefully monitored in the recovery room, and then be released to heal at home. The area around the nose will be bruised and swollen for a week or so. In almost all patients, there is bruising and discoloration under the eyes in addition to the nose. Cold compresses and inflammatory medications can help with these effects.

Rhinoplasty FAQs

Is rhinoplasty surgery risky?

While rhinoplasty is one of the most common procedures in the U.S., all surgeries come with some risk. That's why it's important to choose a rhinoplasty surgeon with a successful track record and years of experience. Dr. Klausner can explain the details of your rhinoplasty procedure and make sure treatment is both safe and effective for you.

What side effects should I expect from rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty patients will experience some post-operative swelling and inflammation as well as bleeding. These side effects are temporary and should resolve over the following days and weeks. Our clinic in New York can provide a detailed list of ways to alleviate any discomfort, including cool compresses and sleeping in a slightly elevated position.

Is surgery the only answer?

Some issues (such as a deviated septum) can only be resolved through rhinoplasty surgery. Patients who desire small and subtle cosmetic changes may want to consider a temporary nonsurgical rhinoplasty. Dr. Klausner can use injectables during treatment so you won't have to go under the knife. We can explain how this works and whether you're a candidate during your assessment.
