About Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty is an aesthetic treatment that is performed to enhance the look and shape of the nose. Furthermore, it may help to improve breathing function in many patients. Dr. James Romanelli and John Layliev are experienced plastic surgeons who have performed many rhinoplasty surgeries. They take a conservative approach to create the most natural results. Even though rhinoplasty consists of delicate changes, results can be beautiful and dramatic. This surgery at Romanelli Cosmetic Surgery in Huntington, NY can be performed to make a nose appear smaller in size or improve a nose that is misshapen, protrudes out, is too large or wide, or has a bump on top. The objective is to create a more aesthetically appealing nose that meets your cosmetic desires and functions properly. Call our office on Long Island to learn more.

Ideal Candidates for Rhinoplasty

Both men and women are candidates for cosmetic nose surgery. If you are unhappy with the size and shape of your nose and have areas you would like to correct and enhance, this treatment may be the recommended solution. It's very important that expectations are discussed during your consultation, as your facial appearance will be altered. Furthermore, facial growth should also be complete. This aspect is especially important for teens considering nose surgery.

Surgical Technique for Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty is performed while the patient is under general anesthesia and is  an outpatient surgery. There are various surgical methods depending on the unique cosmetic goals of the patient. We perform  rhinoplasty using either an open or closed technique. The objective during treatment is to reduce or reshape cartilage and to reduce and reposition bone if there is an abundance present, or to build and increase cartilage if this is lacking for the new shape. The nasal features are repositioned and the skin is redraped over the newly improved framework.

What to Expect from Rhinoplasty

Following rhinoplasty, you will be carefully monitored in the recovery section and then our nurses will release you to recover at home. The nose and upper face will be bruised and swollen for a few days. In almost all patients, there is bruising and discoloration beneath the eyes in addition to the nose. Ice packs and pain medication can assist with these effects. Your follow-up appointment will typically occur within 48 – 72 hours after surgery to check the healing progress. It generally takes around 2 weeks to recover from nose surgery. When in the recovery phase, strenuous activity should be avoided. Swelling may last up to several months or longer.
