Manhattan, New York City
The nose occupies the
center of the face and is one of our most noticeable features.
A rhinoplasty procedure is designed to alter the
size and shape of the nose to help achieve balance with
the rest of the face. Most patients seek a reduction in
the nasal profile, but some men may need augmentation or
enhancement of the profile. We tend to use human cartilage as the source of the implant rather than synthetics. While
the earliest age to perform cosmetic nose surgery varies,
we rarely operate before age 15.
The structure of the nose basically consists of
a skin envelope surrounding various bones and cartilage.
During your rhinoplasty procedure, Dr. Lefkovits
will manipulate the bone and cartilage material, often with
the help of implant cartilage, to achieve your desired shape
and size. The operation is performed in our office operating
suite under general anesthesia, after appropriate pre-operative
blood testing and physical examination. The incisions generally
lie inside the nose but in some cases small incisions may
be made on the outside which are inconspicuous.
After rhinoplasty surgery, most men experience
swelling and bruising around the eyes. Most bruising begins
to fade within the first week but may persist for several
weeks after the surgery. Most men can return to work in
approximately 5 to 10 days depending on their job requirements. Dr. Lefkovits may recommend waiting several weeks
before resuming strenuous activities.
