Rhinoplasty in Long Island, NY
Rhinoplasty is the oldest procedure in facial plastic surgery and one of the most popular. The result can be subtle or dramatic depending on the patient's desired effect. It is also the most complex operation in cosmetic surgery. Nasal anatomy and facial structure vary from person to person, and procedures must be individualized for each patient.
There has been a lot of press lately about a “non-surgical” rhinoplasty, which uses fillers such as Juvéderm™ Injectable Gel, Sculptra® and Radiesse® that are injected to fill around bumps and camouflage the nose. This might be fine for small areas, but these are temporary fillers. Rhinoplasty is an artistic sculpting of the nose that involves removing and narrowing some areas and enhancing others.
