Resize and Reshape with Nose Surgery in New Jersey

Since the nose is such a central feature, it is largely responsible for the overall balance of the face, as well as complementing the surrounding features. That’s why a nose that is overly large or asymmetrical can draw unwanted attention. With a rhinoplasty at New Jersey’s The Peer Group, our plastic surgeons can alter various nasal structures to create a nose that appears proportional, symmetrical, and well suited in its relationship to the chin, ears, and more. While every plastic surgery requires skill and artistry on the part of the surgeon, the results of facial procedures are especially visible—and the effects of nose surgery are quite literally front and center. We work closely with every patient to establish their aesthetic goals, determine what’s possible, and apply the latest advanced techniques for a beautiful and natural-looking outcome.

What Is Rhinoplasty?

Many people refer to rhinoplasty surgery as a “nose job” because of its obvious sole focus. Even so, the procedure is not a straightforward surgery that plays out the same for every patient. We may reshape or resize the bridge or base of the nose, removing and repositioning tissue to make the necessary alterations. Some patients want us to address an obvious hump and nothing more, while others ask us to make their entire nose “smaller.”

Defects may be strictly cosmetic, or they may impede airflow. They can be genetic and present since birth, or the result of trauma, such as a car accident or fall. Because of the wide range of possibilities, a rhinoplasty can involve any number of techniques.

Which Rhinoplasty Technique Is Ideal?

The two main approaches to rhinoplasty are closed (which involves changes made internally via the nostrils) and open (which involves an incision made at the strip of tissue between the nostrils, known as the columella). An open rhinoplasty allows for direct visualization and access to internal nasal structures—like cartilage that needs to be repositioned or nasal bones that need to be shaved down—but it is also more involved and requires a more significant recovery period. The ideal technique for you will be discussed at your consultation.

What Is Rhinoplasty Recovery Like?

The extent of a patient’s rhinoplasty will determine how their recovery plays out, but everyone can expect some discomfort, as well as swelling and bruising. Many people develop “black eyes” and find it best to avoid social interactions for a few weeks, until they have sufficiently healed and won’t have to explain their appearance. Heavy exercise and lifting should be avoided for at least a month, and nose surgery patients should hold off on participating in any contact sports for about three months. A blow to the nose from an errant volleyball or football can damage the carefully shaped structures and alter the desired look.

Even after the initial side effects resolve, it can take up to a year for your face to fully heal. After roughly 12 months, your nose should be finished repairing itself internally, and your new facial contours will be set.
