Balance and Sculpt the Centerpiece of Your Face
Our face is the first thing most people see, and our nose is one of the most prominent features. If the way your nose looks is not your ideal, it may be time to consider rhinoplasty. More than just straightening crooked lines or smoothing bumps, this procedure can add symmetry to the face and refine your entire look.
Dr. Fredric Newman, MD, and his entire team are ready to help guide you through the process to ensure you receive outstanding results. Dr. Newman has developed an advanced technique known as “The Newman Nose” and delivers stunning outcomes every time he performs surgery. So, for those looking for the best rhinoplasty Westchester County has to offer, many end up making the added effort to come to Dr. Newman just 30 miles east, in Darien, CT.
Rhinoplasty is a facial cosmetic surgery procedure that adjusts the structure of the bone and cartilage in the nose to reshape and contour. It is used to address both aesthetic and functional concerns. Dr. Fredric Newman will determine which of two standard techniques to utilize for your surgery. Though they are similar, each one has its specific pros and cons.
Open rhinoplasty surgery is performed by making a very small incision at the skin between the nostrils to elevate the skin and allow the nose to be “open” during the surgery. This method is beneficial for correcting concerns with the septum and at the tip of the nose. With a closed rhinoplasty, no incisions are made outside the nose; they are made exclusively within the nostrils. Using this method, there is no visible scarring. Dr. Newman typically opts for a closed rhinoplasty because of the advanced tools and techniques he uses. Ultimately, he will decide which one to use based on each patients’ specific needs.
Ethnic rhinoplasty is typically used to describe surgery performed for non-Caucasian descended patients who would like to enhance or alter the appearance or function of their nose while preserving distinct features of their ethnic background.
If a patient underwent a rhinoplasty and was not satisfied with the results, they may opt for a revision to make slight adjustments. However, this can sometimes be very delicate, and choosing a skilled surgeon for revision surgery is crucial.
Rhinoplasty can sculpt your nose, make it smaller, and balance your nose and facial features. If you have sinus or breathing problems due to a deviated septum, it can address these concerns for a better quality of life. Rhinoplasty benefits include:

Since the nose is a reasonably delicate area, you may have some tenderness for a few days. You will receive detailed instructions for post-op care to ensure the best possible outcome.

While there is no specific age that is considered ideal for a rhinoplasty, many surgeons consider before 35-40 years of age optimal since there is better skin elasticity at this point. But, there is no absolute upper limit. For teens, after 13 years old is best (as long as the patient has gone through puberty) so that the nose is fully developed.
