A Rhinoplasty Reshapes the Nose to Highlight Your Facial Features
For rhinoplasty in the greater Long Island, NY, or Manhattan,NY, areas, trust Dr. Stephen Greenberg. Rhinoplasty, or nose surgery, is a surgical procedure to reshape the nose by changing the underlying cartilage and bone. Rhinoplasty can now be performed to look natural, without the “operated on” appearance to the nose. Rhinoplasty surgery by Dr. Greenberg at his Long Island practice can enhance the appearance of your entire face.
Rhinoplasty Can Give You Natural-looking Results
Dr. Greenberg is passionate about making the appearance of your nose look very natural following a rhinoplasty procedure. If you have a bump on your nose, it sticks out too far, or a tip that’s full or bulbous, you may be a good candidate for the procedure. Stunning results can be achieved with very minimal recovery or downtime.
What to Expect from a Rhinoplasty Procedure
If you are considering rhinoplasty by Dr. Greenberg, one of New York’s premier cosmetic surgeons, you should expect the procedure to:
- Correct the size of the nose
- Remove the “dorsal hump” or bump on the nose
- Change the width of the nose
- Define and correct the tip of the nose
- Correct breathing problems
Achieving a Natural Appearance
Dr. Greenberg will review your desires and specific anatomical issues with you at the time of your initial consultation. By individualizing the rhinoplasty procedure for each patient, the best overall results can be obtained from the most affordable options. Dr. Greenberg believes in a very natural appearance to the nose, and strives to accomplish this with every patient.
Improving the shape and aesthetics of your nose does not only help to improve your confidence, but can help to highlight more of your facial features.
Surgery and Recovery Times
Dr. Greenberg has multiple offices in New York. Rhinoplasty surgery is usually performed in his Long Island office ambulatory surgical center. You may be discharged shortly after the procedure. Nasal surgery can be performed either under general anesthesia or with local anesthesia depending on what needs to be done. Rhinoplasty takes about one to two hours, and the patient usually experiences only mild discomfort when recovering.
The incisions that Dr. Greenberg utilizes are completely hidden on the inside of the nose, usually with no external incisions! The underlying bone and cartilage is re-shaped giving the nose a natural contour. Many times, the nasal passage may need to be opened in conjunction with the rhinoplasty, which is called septoplasty. Slight bruising and swelling may occur but will reside in a few days.
Dr. Greenberg sees his New York rhinoplasty patients regularly for post-operative follow-ups with their progress. During rhinoplasty recovery, patients are usually bandaged for about four days, and normal activity can be started in a short period of time. Dr. Greenberg performs rhinoplasty surgery for a natural look without an “operated on” appearance. View our rhinoplasty before and after pictures to see Dr. Greenberg’s natural results.
