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.

 

Good Candidates For Rhinoplasty

Are you thinking about having a rhinoplasty surgery? Healthy teenagers and adults who wish to have an improvement in their nasal appearance are good candidates for the rhinoplasty procedure. The decision about having the rhinoplasty operation is a very important and personal one. You should first consult with Dr. Kassir at his surgical clinic in the Wayne, NJ, or Ridgewood NJ office before deciding on the operation. For most patients that undergo this nose job procedure, the results are life changing. Patients describe an increase in confidence and boost in self-esteem. The ideal NJ candidates for rhinoplasty are:

  • You are unhappy with the size and/or shape of your nose.
  • You have breathing problems limited to your nose.
  • You suffered an injury that has altered the look of your nose.
  • You have breathing problems.
  • You are over the age of thirteen.
  • You have good physical and emotional health.

 

How Much Does a Rhinoplasty Cost in NJ?

Prices for Rhinoplasty can range from $15,000 to $35,000 depending on:

  • The type of rhinoplasty (primary or revision) - since revision rhinoplasties are more difficult they tend to cost more than primary surgeries
  • The experience of the surgeon
  • The location of the surgical facility where procedure is performed
  • What work needs to be done on the nose - especially whether grafts (rib cartilage) need to be used. 

Depending on the patient's insurance, functional components (septum, sinuses etc) may be covered.

As you make a decision to proceed with Rhinoplasty keep in mind 3 things: this is your face, so you should never compromise on quality! Is your surgeon experienced and do they have a proven record of creating beautiful noses? Lastly, do you have any breathing or sinus issues? It doesn't make sense to have a great looking nose that doesn't function properly.

 

Does Insurance Cover Rhinoplasty?

Insurance may cover some of the functional aspects of rhinoplasty. In other words, those procedures that improve breathing:

  • opening sinus drainage pathways (endoscopic sinus surgery),
  • shrinking large turbinates (turbinate reduction),
  • straightening a crooked septum (septoplasty),
  • valve surgery (placing cartilage grafts to stabilize the breathing passage).

Rhinoplasty Questions & Answers

Will removal of my grafts post-rhinoplasty restore my nose to its original shape?

This is unlikely. In general, grafts are used as a way of supporting changes which are made to the nose, meaning that those changes would still likely be present in some way after the graft is removed. Also, the formation of scar tissue and the thinning of the skin around the graft will also contribute to a difference in pre-graft and post-graft noses.

Is there a problem if my splint is crooked?

The purpose of the splint post-rhinoplasty is to protect the nose and also ensure a decrease in post-procedure swelling. However, even if the splint is crooked, the surgical tape underneath it is probably applied correctly. Consult with your surgeon about this, though.

How does an injection rhinoplasty work?

Injection, or non-surgical, rhinoplasty is not a true rhinoplasty in the sense that the underlying cartilage and nasal bones under the skin are not manipulated in any way and the changes are thus more subtle. Instead, during these procedures (which generally last around 10-20 minutes), temporary injectable fillers like Restylane or Juvaderm are placed in the skin to add fullness into areas and influence nasal contouring.

Why is my columella so swollen after surgery and will it get better?

The tip/columella area is a primary surgical site during a rhinoplasty and will take longer to heal in terms of swelling than other areas of the nose. The swelling will tend to gradually dissipate over the course of a year, but should be generally resolved within 6 months.

Can a Headbutt cause a permanent bump on the bridge of the nose?

Generally, patients will be aware if a nasal fracture has occurred immediately after a trauma. In most cases, bumps on the nose following trauma are a result of soft tissue damage particularly in the periosteum (where the nasal blood supply is housed) and will degrade eventually.
