ABOUT RHINOPLASTY

What is Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty, or cosmetic nasal surgery, improves the shape and size of the nose. The procedure can remove a hump, change the shape of the nasal tip, and straighten the nose. The size and shape of the nostrils can be changed. The goal of rhinoplasty is often to achieve better harmony between the nose and the other facial features. Dr. Kassir is a triple board certified surgeon who has performed thousands of rhinoplasty surgeries for his patients and is considered to be one of the best Rhinoplasty surgeons in New Jersey.

Rhinoplasty has become one of the most popular facial plastic surgical procedures in recent years as more and more people seek to change the appearance of their noses. Many are unhappy with the nose they were born with while others have had the shape of the nose distorted from an injury. Disorders of nasal breathing and sinusitis often complicate the situation. A range of techniques are used to fully address the desired change in appearance as well as to improve nasal breathing and correct chronic sinus infections. Sinus surgery, if indicated, is done with endoscopes to avoid any visible incisions.

Rhinoplasty may be performed under general or sedation anesthesia on an outpatient basis. Most health insurance plans still provide some coverage for functional nasal surgery and sinus surgery.

Rhinoplasty Questions & Answers

Should I rasp the nasal bone by the eye area where my surgeon claims that there is a bone bruise?

This is probably best answered by an examination with your surgeon. Nasal bones could easily be rasped via a limited incision, but ask what your surgeon thinks about this operation and whether it is feasible.

What is the difference between a Weir reduction and an alar base reduction?

Surgeons will generally use these terms interchangeably as they both basically consist of taking out crescent-shaped wedges from the nostrils and stitching the resulting holes (thus creating smaller nostrils). However, the alar base reduction technique is a bit more comprehensive which removes the alar lobule.

Can I use a cleansing pore strip one week post-rhinoplasty?

I would advise against it. During this time, the skin has just been redraped over the newly aligned tissue and is not properly attached yet. Therefore, any action which may involve pulling or prodding the skin could cause issues. Skin care questions are best addressed by the surgeon who conducted the operation.

How visible are the scars from a nose job?

In closed rhinoplasties, all incisions are made within the nostrils and thus the scars that form are generally imperceptible unless Weir reductions are also done to reduce nostril size. Open rhinoplasties, however, will also make use of an incision at the columella (the thin strip of skin between the nostrils) which risks more apparent scarring. However, in the hands of an experienced surgeon, even this scar will heal nicely.

Why can’t I smile properly post-rhinoplasty?

Patients after a rhinoplasty will generally experience a tightness in the nose tip and upper lip area due to post-rhinoplasty swelling and trauma to the nerves in the area, both of which can alter their smile. However, these issues will generally resolve themselves around the 1-2 month benchmark.

Can I simply use a corticosteroid on my nose to make it smaller rather than going through a rhinoplasty?

Unfortunately, this is not a realistic procedure for the results you want. Steroid injections are used strictly in post-op conditions to reduce swelling, not as a method of primary treatment as they do not reduce cartilage in the nose.
