Rhinoplasty Q & A

What is a rhinoplasty procedure? 

Rhinoplasty is sometimes referred to as a nose job. But rhinoplasty procedures aren't solely cosmetic; they can also help correct structural problems in your nose and improve your breathing.

Rhinoplasty is often a complex procedure. It can affect both the appearance and function of your nose. A skilled surgeon can make adjustments that balance your features and enhance the harmony of your face. 

What cosmetic concerns does rhinoplasty address?

Rhinoplasty procedures reshape the bones and cartilage in your nose. These procedures can:

  • Balance your profile by resizing your nose
  • Reduce the width of your nose or nostrils
  • Remove bumps from the bridge of your nose
  • Reshape the tip of your nose
  • Correct any nasal asymmetry

If you're not satisfied with the way your nose looks, a consultation with Dr. Craig Foster can help you decide whether a rhinoplasty procedure is right for you.

During your consultation, Dr. Foster explains which procedures can alter the appearance of your nose. He also reviews nonsurgical alternative and less invasive options so you can make an informed decision about potential surgeries.

What happens during a rhinoplasty procedure?

Surgical procedures are performed in Dr. Foster's private, discreet surgical facilities in Manhattan. On the day of your procedure, Dr. Foster and his medical staff help you get comfortable and prepare you for surgery. A board-certified anesthesiologist administers the anesthesia or intravenous sedation.

During your procedure, Dr. Foster makes incisions inside the nose or around the nostril where scarring will not be visible. Dr. Foster may then make any of the following adjustments to your nose:

  • Remove any excess cartilage
  • Graft cartilage to adjust your nose shape
  • Correct a deviated septum
  • Shave down or reshape the nasal bone
  • Adjust your nostril size and shape

Afterward, Dr. Foster closes the incisions. You then rest comfortably in a private recovery area until you're ready to go home. Dr. Foster and the nurses provide detailed instructions on how to care for yourself at home while you’re recovering from the procedure.

What kind of results can I expect?

If you're unhappy with your nose, plastic surgery can help you regain your self-confidence. Patients are often amazed to discover how a rhinoplasty procedure alters and improves the entire appearance of their faces. But rhinoplasty results always depend on the skills of the surgeon.

Dr. Foster is board certified as both a plastic surgeon and an otolaryngologist (an ear, nose, and throat doctor). He has the expertise needed to perform rhinoplasty procedures that preserve healthy nasal function while providing a natural-looking appearance.
