Rhinoplasty, often referred to as a “nose job,” is a cosmetic surgical procedure in Manhattan and Long Island that focuses on reshaping and enhancing nasal aesthetics. Dr. Nikfarjam, the skilled leader at New You Plastic Surgery, employs his expertise to craft a harmonious and balanced nasal appearance.
Unlike a mere surgical intervention, cosmetic Rhinoplasty is an artful orchestration where subtle adjustments can have a profound impact, bringing your desired nasal contours to life. It’s not just a procedure, as our team makes sure your nose reflects the truest expression of your beauty.
Nose jobs can be performed as a closed rhinoplasty or an open rhinoplasty. In general, patients seeking smaller changes in their nose, like correcting a drooping tip or a dorsal hump, can be treated with either approach.
In a Rhinoplasty, the skin is elevated to reshape the nasal bones and cartilage. The various types of cartilage grafting include septal extension grafts, tip grafts, spreader grafts, alar rim grafts, and columella grafts are often used to reconstruct the nasal bridge or nasal tip or to correct other irregularities in nasal shape or appearance. Rhinoplasty can include septoplasty, turbinate reduction, and removal of deviated bone from the inside of your nose. In addition, a lip lift, cheek, or chin augmentation with implants or fat grafting can be combined with a Rhinoplasty procedure.
In addition to cosmetic reasons, nose surgery can be performed to improve functional concerns, such as a deviated septum that can cause difficulty breathing.
Every patient has a unique bone structure, facial profile, and needs, which is why at New You, we don’t just have an “out-of-the-box” procedure. Rhinoplasty can use a variety of techniques and methods to enhance your nose. Below, we have some brief descriptions of the kind that we offer.
Open Rhinoplasty begins with a small incision across the columella, which separates the two nostrils. From here, the skin will be elevated to assess your bony and cartilage framework. At this point, your surgeon will have full exposure to perform corrections such as removing excess tissue, reshaping the cartilage and nasal bones, or placing cartilage grafts. Once the corrections are finished, the skin is repositioned and sutured for healing.
An Open Rhinoplasty will result in a scar at the incision site, however, this is usually well concealed. As time passes, the scar will fade and remain minimally visible.
The Closed Rhinoplasty technique is employed for patients needing minimal nasal correction. Your plastic surgeon will initiate this nose surgery by making small incisions inside each nostril. Subsequently, she performs necessary nasal corrections, such as sculpting the cartilage and nasal bones, removing excess tissue, or modifying the shape and size of the nostrils. Upon completion, the incisions are closed using dissolvable sutures.
Closed Rhinoplasty leaves no visible scarring, but due to limited access to this technique, not all patients are potential candidates.
When conducted by a skilled plastic surgeon, Rhinoplasty surgery can yield excellent results. Unfortunately, some Rhinoplasty patients with a previous surgery may not achieve the desired outcomes. Revision Rhinoplasty, also known as Secondary Rhinoplasty, is often deemed a more intricate cosmetic procedure by many plastic surgeons, given the heightened expectations of Rhinoplasty patients. Consequently, numerous Rhinoplasty surgeons may struggle to meet the specific results sought by their patients.
The nose is such a fascinating olfactory and respiratory organ. Not only does it make up a very prominent portion of the face, but it has the ability to detect over a trillion different smells, influence your taste buds, and even help you potentially find a mate by recognizing undetectable pheromones. It consists of the nasal skeleton, which houses the nasal cavity. The nasal cavity has four functions:
For all of its intricacies and nuances, the nose is incredibly compelling and Dr. Nikfarjam has developed a thorough understanding and appreciation of nasal anatomy on his journey to become a plastic surgeon.
For your knowledge, we have included the structures that Nikfarjam and Dr. Goulart takes into consideration during this plastic surgery:
As the overall protector of your nose and its inner workings, the upper portion of your nose has skin that is thinner and more mobile, while the lower portion is less flexible and thicker. When performing any kind of Rhinoplasty, Dr. Nikfarjam makes sure to leave the exterior of your nose as pristine as possible, making any necessary incisions inside the nostrils as often as possible.
Underneath the protective barrier of the skin projecting into the nasal cavity, are three curved shelves of bone called conchae – the inferior, middle, and superior. The function of this conchae is to increase the surface area of the nasal cavity, which increases the amount of air you can receive. They also disrupt the fast flow of the air, slowing it down so that the air spends longer in the nasal cavity so that it can be humidified.
The nose has several distinct cartilage structures that help support and give your nose its primary shape. These different types of connective tissue in your nasal cavity are called the septal nasal cartilage, lower lateral cartilage, and upper lateral cartilage.
The septal nasal cartilage separates one nasal cavity from the other. The upper lateral nasal cartilage is a wing-like expansion, providing support within the nasal cavities. The lower lateral cartilage holds up each naris (nostril) and provides form and strength at the base of your nostrils.
