Nose Surgery

Service Description

If you're considering a nose job, or rhinoplasty, in New York, you're in good company. Rhinoplasty is consistently one of the most sought after cosmetic surgeries for men and women across the country. Statistics kept by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery show little change in nose job popularity since 1997, when the organization first started tracking trends.

We have seen similar demand among our patients in New York: rhinoplasty is among the top ten procedures we perform for women and in the top five for men. The consistent interest in rhinoplasty stems from the fact that the nose is the center of attraction on the human face. It contributes a great deal to the overall appeal of our appearance when its proportions fit the rest of you, when it speaks to – but doesn't scream – your heritage and when it doesn't suggest you may have enjoyed a career as a prizefighter.

Rhinoplasty is one of the oldest known plastic surgery procedures, developed centuries ago to reconstruct injured or amputated noses. Today, patients typically chose a nose job for cosmetic reasons, while some are looking to improve airflow (and some people have both objectives in mind). Whatever your need may be, Dr. Elliot Jacobs' three decades as a one of the leading plastic surgeons in New York give him the experience and aesthetic sensitivity to create the result you're seeking.

Rhinoplasty Overview

Dr. Jacobs performs most rhinoplasty surgeries as "closed" procedures, meaning incisions are made inside the nostrils only and all work is performed from within. If the "open" technique is needed, he will make a small incision across the column of skin between your nostrils, the columella, and inside. Either way, small scars will be invisible after healing.

The procedure itself involves gently separating skin from the structures underneath, carefully sculpting or reshaping bone and cartilage, then repositioning skin and closing the incisions with tiny dissolving sutures. Your surgery will take about an hour to an hour and a half, and will likely take place in our fully accredited Manhattan plastic surgery suite. You'll have intravenous sedation, also known as twilight anesthesia, administered by our board certified M.D. anesthesiologist. If you've ever had general anesthesia, you'll find this form of sedation to be much more gentle.

You may be surprised how little discomfort you'll experience after rhinoplasty. You may have a headache for several hours, but most patients say they feel no real pain. Your nose may ooze for a day, and you will experience some swelling and bruising. We recommend elevating the head and using cold compresses to help with this.

You will have a splint that Dr. Jacobs will remove in a few days. At this point most patients are already quite pleased with their new look! Most residual swelling will dissipate in about a month and the final shape of your nose will be apparent in several more months. Most patients return to work and light activity in a week or so following surgery. Aerobic and strenuous activities will need to wait a few more weeks.
