Rhinoplasty Before & After Photos

Case Number: 57

Before   After

This young woman almost had it all: beautiful skin, high cheekbones, and alluring eyes. But the bump on her nose detracted from her beauty and I could tell when I first met her in my New York City office that her nose was a sore spot on her self esteem. She and I both knew that some careful sculpting of her nose would unlock her full potential. As you can see from the two photos above, the rhinoplasty results are simply dazzling.

Like some of my New York patients, she had preconceived notions of how she wanted her nose surgery to turn out. She brought in pictures from fashion magazines and told me about advice from friends and family. I encourage my patients to do their own research, but as an experienced surgeon I am able to discuss some things you might overlook on your own, such as how your nose surgery result will complement the shape of your face, your hairstyle, and your ethnicity.

When discussing nose shape with a patient, I always use computer imaging technology. It’s a great way for patients to visualize their potential results, and very often after seeing the full range of possibilities, the patient and I both agree on the same shape. You might have an idea of what your revised nose will look like, but it’s a whole different story when you actually see it in full color on a computer screen.

After talking it through, this patient selected a closed rhinoplasty, which requires no external incision. Closed rhinoplasty is best for my New York patients who need routine surgical correction near the bridge or tip of the nose. This patient’s entire procedure lasted less than one hour, and she was back at work seven days later with a fresh look and new confidence. If you like these results, schedule a consultation for yourself.
