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 $10,000 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

I have a hole in my septum, but it does not go through all the way to the other side. Is it a septal perforation?

This may be a question best answered by your surgeon, but a hole which does not go all the way through the septum does not constitute a septal perforation.

Why does the skin thicken after a rhinoplasty?

Unnatural thickening of the nose, other than from swelling, may be caused by the buildup of scar tissue underneath the skin, particularly if the patient has had multiple rhinoplasties. This can be solved by cortisone or Kenalog injections.

Did a nasal fracture cause my headaches?

It is definitely not uncommon for patients who experience nasal fractures to experience headaches. It is best for these patients to go to a well-qualified surgeon to plan their best course of action.

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.

When can I start smoking following surgery?

Though I would rather patients quit smoking entirely after surgery, I would wait at least 4 weeks post-rhinoplasty to begin again. Cigarettes contain nicotine and carbon monoxide, the first of which is a vasoconstrictor and causes tissue death in the surgical area by limiting blood flow and the second of which decreases the blood’s oxygen capacity and also causes tissue death.

Is it normal for my nose to twitch post-rhinoplasty?

Patients may experience paresthesias post-rhinoplasty, which is a zapping sensation that occurs when sensory nerves begin to regrow in a trauma-affected area. However, twitching is unusual and should be addressed via consultation with the surgeon.
