3 Things a Rhinoplasty Can and Cannot Do

Rhinoplasty  <meta property="og:title" content="Rhinoplasty | Nose Surgery | If you have always hated the shape, size, or overall appearance of your nose or if you have recently injured your nose, then you may have fantasies of getting a rhinoplasty from Dr. Larry Weinstein. But before you consider really learning more about this procedure, it’s good to know what a rhinoplasty can and cannot do. Let’s take a closer look.

It Can’t Give You Any Nose

A lot of patients think that when you get a rhinoplasty, you can get any nose that you want. And although you can show us pictures of similar features that you want in a nose, we won’t be able to mimic other people’s noses perfectly; we have to use your nose’s structures and integrity as the base. Then, from there, we can reshape it, and resize it if needed.

It Can Change Your Appearance

If you think about your facial structure, then you know just how front and center your nose sits on your face. So, if we go in and change your nose, it is going to change your entire facial appearance; even if we do a minimal nose job. That being said, it will change your appearance for the better so that you walk out of your final appointment feeling more confident than ever.

It Doesn’t Take Long

Usually, Dr. Weinstein performs rhinoplasties on an outpatient basis, and the entire procedure only takes about two hours max which means that you will be able to get in and out of surgery before you know it. Once you have been cleared to go home, we will send you home with a detailed list of recovery instructions and tips.

Knowing what a surgery can and cannot do will help you land on the right procedure for you. To learn more about rhinoplasties, schedule an appointment with Dr. Weinstein at our Chester office today and give us a call at 908-879-2222.

What to Expect with Rhinoplasty

RhinoplastyNoses are something that many people are not satisfied with. The nose may be too big for their face; it may turn up too much or simply not fit in with the person’s definition of beauty. A Rhinoplasty surgery is meant to correct the nose issue, and give a person the nose that they have always wanted. However, there is more to this surgery that what most people think, and it is considered a major surgery that will require recovery time.

Depending upon the amount of work that needs to be done to the nose will determine where the incision is made, which can be between the nose holes or at the side of the nose. Once the incision is made, bone and cartilage is manipulated in order to give the shape that the person wants. This involves cutting and chiseling off bone to give a better shape. In cases in which the nose needs to be made bigger, the doctor will use cartilage from other parts of the body to shape your new nose.

After the surgery, you are usually allowed to go home as long as there are no complications. When you leave, internal dressings are placed in the nose to stop bleeding and to form blood clots, and a splint is added to your nose for added protection. There are things that you should not be doing such as strenuous activity which can lead to more bleeding and issues, avoid smiling or laughing for a while to not disrupt the nose, do not blow your nose and do not pull clothes over your head as this could dislodge the splint or cause issues.

It is common for people to have black or blue splotches under the eyes after surgery and to have swelling in the nose. The black eyes will leave in a couple of days, while the swelling could stay in place for a little longer as the nose heals.

Are You Man Enough to Go Under the Knife?

A growing number of men in the country are now very much keen into going under the knife, says a recent report by the The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS). Over the last decade and a half, a whooping 121 percent increase in men seeking cosmetic surgery procedures have been reported. In 2011, the top plastic surgery procedures for men were liposuction, rhinoplasty, eyelid surgery, male breast reduction and face lift.

By and large, men from metropolitan areas often seek cosmetic procedures to correct or improve their overall physical appearance. Dr. Larry Weinstein, one of the premier plastic surgeons for New York male cosmetic surgery, performs the aforementioned top 5 procedures for men last year.

Fats Off with Liposuction

Liposuction generally works by suctioning out deposits of fat which are accumulated beneath your skin. Dr. Weinstein deftly carries out this procedure with his smooth and controlled hand movements, what with years of playing the violin. Men who are worried about the fats that simply won’t go away on their arms, waistline and legs will greatly benefit from liposuction.

Rhinoplasty for the Real Men

Dr. Weinstein believes that the best candidates for rhinoplasty are those who are not seeking perfection but improvement. In preparing for this surgery, you may be advised to avoid smoking and alcohol intake weeks before the date of operation. Rhinoplasty may be done either through local or general anaesthesia which will totally depend on the degree of surgery.

Drive the Puffiness Away with Blepharoplasty

Get rid of eye bags, the puffy regions around your eyes and drooping eyelids with Dr. Weinstien’s eyelid surgery procedures. Eyelid surgeries can be done in conjunction with other facial surgeries such as a brow lift or a face lift. The entire process usually takes around two to three hours, including pre-surgical preparations.

Good Riddance to Man Boobs!

Gynecomastia or man boobs is almost always the result of dramatic weight loss, intake of certain medications or influence of hormones. Non-smokers and those who are holistically healthy are ideal candidates for male breast reduction. Keep in mind that heavy lifting may be prohibited within 4-6 weeks post-procedure.

Take Years Off from Your Face, Brother

One of Dr. Weinstein’s important considerations when performing face lift amongst males is making sure that their baseline blood pressure is within normal limits. Due to genetic differences, blood pressure amongst men tend to be higher than that of women. Face lift falls under major surgeries wherein blood pressure levels are at high risk of for abnormal variations.

Nose Surgery New Jersey Rhinoplasty

Many men and women are unhappy with their nose. This dissatisfaction can come from either aesthetic or functional issues, but many times, it is due to some combination of both. While some people find their nose is too large, others find their nose is too small for their face. Further dissatisfaction may come from bumps or indentations in the profile of the nose or a desire to change the shape or size of the tip of the nose or the nostrils. Functional issues would include difficulty breathing due to things like a deviated septum. Dr. Weinstein has helped many people achieve a better looking, better functioning nose through Rhinoplasty Surgery.

Rhinoplasty, also known as Nose Surgery or a Nose Job, is a procedure to improve the size, shape or function of the nose. It can also be done to repair a nose after trauma or injury or even to repair a previous Rhinoplasty, which is known as Reconstructive Rhinoplasy. If you are dissatisfied with your nose for any reason, contact Dr. Weinstein to schedule a consultation and begin your path to a more balanced, harmonious and better functioning nose.

Rhinoplasty New Jersey

Many men and women alike are dissatisfied with their noses. The reasons vary from structural issues to aesthetic ones. Rhinoplasty can help to dramatically improve overall facial symmetry, harmony and help improve nose function. Board certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Weinstein has helped many New Jersey area men and women achieve the nose they desire through Nose Surgery.

For some people the nose may seem too large or too small in proportion to the rest of their facial features, likewise the tip of the nose may have a similar issue. The profile of the nose may reveal bumps or indentations which are unsatisfactory, or the nostrils may be too large, misshapen or uneven. These are examples of aesthetic issues commonly resolved through Rhinoplasty. Similarly, functional issues, such as deviated septums, can also be resolved through Rhinoplasty to create a clearer airway to help make breathing easier.

If you are unhappy with your nose for whatever reason, we invite you to contact our office and schedule a consultation with Dr. Weinstein. View our Before and After photo gallery showcasing some of our patients Rhinoplasty results.
