Which Concerns Can Nose Surgery Address?

Patients who struggle with their confidence can find renewed self-esteem with rhinoplasty. Our New York City plastic surgeon often uses it to refine insecurities like:

  • Wide Bridges
  • Lumps Along the Nose
  • Misshapen Nasal Tips
  • Changes Caused by Trauma
  • Oversized Nostrils
  • The Size of the Nose

Need More Than a Routine Nose Job? Our Rhinoplasty Surgeon Offers These Options

Revision Rhinoplasty

Not all plastic surgeons have the same amount of experience or qualifications as Dr. Foster. If you have undergone rhinoplasty in the past, only to be dissatisfied with your results, Dr. Foster can help. He is a double board-certified doctor with an excellent reputation for superior revision rhinoplasty.

Rhinoplasty for Deviated Septum

Do you often struggle to breathe through your nose? You may have a deviated septum, which affects your nasal passages. This condition can genuinely impact your life — but it's treatable. Our doctor can perform rhinoplasty surgery for functional reasons, aesthetic desires, or a combination of both.

Choose a Doctor Who Understands Your Nose

It's crucial to find a doctor you can trust. Dr. Foster quite literally authored the book on this subject, having co-written a textbook on surgery. He can go above and beyond for his patients due to his qualifications, like:

Board Certification

Unlike some other New York City plastic surgeons, Dr. Foster is board certified in two specialties: otolaryngology, and plastic and reconstructive surgery. This takes additional training and testing to achieve — and not all surgeons will make the grade.

Otolaryngology Knowledge

Because of his focus in otolaryngology, which covers the ear, nose, and throat, Dr. Foster has a stronger understanding of how your nose functions. This allows him to perform more targeted revision rhinoplasty and rhinoplasty for deviated septum.

ACS Fellowship

To become a Fellow of the ACS, or American College of Surgeons, Dr. Foster had to undergo a rigorous assessment. It included substantial prerequisites, like board certification, as well as an emphasis on constant dedication to quality, like undergoing continuing education.

It's not just about finding a rhinoplasty surgeon; it's about finding the right one. To learn more about our esteemed doctor, contact our private New York, NY, boutique practice or call us at:

How Old Should I Be for a Nose Job?

The answer depends on you and your case. Of course, Dr. Foster will never perform plastic surgery if you're not a good candidate, or if you have not finished developing yet. In some cases, though, patients in their teenage years can be eligible for treatment.

What Can I Expect When I Explore Rhinoplasty?

While every nose surgery at our New York, NY, practice is different,
you can expect these general steps:

Our discreet facial plastic surgery practice includes its own American Association for Ambulatory Surgical Facilities-accredited operating room.

Before you can begin the facial plastic surgery process, Dr. Foster will ensure that you're a strong candidate. He'll assess your health and your nose to make sure that treatment is possible. Our doctor will also talk with you about your expectations to ensure that they're realistic.


Dr. Foster will never compromise your safety or promise unachievable results. Instead, he'll create a realistic outline for your treatment. From refining your nasal passages to making your nose smaller, there are many techniques that our doctor can use to safely alter your cartilage and bone.


Before we even think of conducting your nose job, we will ensure that you're fully comfortable with anesthesia. It allows you to peacefully drift off.


To access your nose, our surgeon will need to create incisions. He will tailor his techniques, like a closed rhinoplasty conducted with discreet incisions inside your nostrils, to your exact case. His choice of methods can also help prevent nasal scarring.


Dr. Foster will artfully reshape your cartilage and bone to create the desired new appearance for your nose. If needed, he can also adjust your septum to ensure that you can inhale and exhale properly through your nasal passages.

Final Touches

Once your personalized process is complete and your cartilage and bone have been repositioned, Dr. Foster will close the nasal incisions. He may also place splints, which can make the healing process easier.

What Is Recovery Like?


Recovery can vary from patient to patient, but you can expect to see your true results in about a year. The healing process will happen much quicker, ranging from about two to four weeks. While the first week will be the hardest, our New York, NY, plastic surgery team is always here to support you.

Can I Refine My Nose Without Surgery?

For some patients, the idea of surgery can be daunting. Luckily, our caring New York team can meet you where you're at with nonsurgical rhinoplasty. We offer BOTOX® Cosmetic and dermal fillers to refine the shape of your nose.

Injectables require far less commitment and can easily be adjusted or discontinued. They're also much easier to recover from than rhinoplasty surgery. Curious about your candidacy? Dr. Foster can help you explore the possibilities with a consultation.

A Real Rhinoplasty Story

"Dr. Foster is incredible! From the second I met him I knew
he was the surgeon for me. He has incredible bedside manner
and is a true artist and genius. I am 6 months post rhinoplasty
and couldn't be happier with my results. He is known for
natural results and I now have the perfect nose that suits my
face. The surgical experience couldn't have been any better
and I am so grateful for his work. If you are looking for an
expert in noses and want a natural result he is the doctor
to go to."
