The nose is at the center of the face, and it’s one of the first things people notice. For many of us, the shape and contour of the nose doesn’t work with the rest of the face. It could be a bump on the bridge of the nose, a rounded tip, or the nose may stick out too far from the face.
There are 2 types of rhinoplasty: an open and a closed technique. Dr. Rockmore takes an individualized approach to sculpt your nose and ensure results look natural. During your consultation, Dr. Rockmore will carefully examine your nose and then explain the specific options for your treatment.
Not every face is the same, and neither should be every nose. As he no longer believes that computer generated images give an accurate depiction of what your nose will look like, an open dialogue between you and Dr. Rockmore will address the goals of your procedure and the result you can expect.
The nose can be out of proportion with the rest of the face in its length, width, or projection from the cheeks (height). In many cases, it is a combination of all 3. In this procedure, Dr. Rockmore carefully shapes the nasal bones and shifts their location, bringing balance to the face.
This is a bump that can occur on the bridge of the nose that can give the nose a hook shape or pushes the tip of the nose down to make it look long. The height of the nasal bridge and its contour are determined by the underlying bone and cartilage of the septum. This is corrected by trimming the height of the cartilage of the septum and the nasal bones.
The tip of the nose can be overly round. The shape of the tip is determined by the underlying tip cartilage, which can be too round or too large. Rhinoplasty reduces the width of the tip cartilages and changing their shape with sutures.
Septoplasty procedures correct a deviated septum. The septum is the wall that separates your nostrils, and a deviated or crooked septum impacts the nasal airway, causing difficulty breathing and sleeping. Septoplasty surgery removes some of the cartilage to open your airway, allowing you to breathe. It does not alter the external appearance of the nose.
For patients looking for an alternative to the traditional rhinoplasty, Dr. Rockmore specializes in liquid nose jobs. This non-surgical approach utilizes soft tissue fillers to address nasal bumps and humps as well as moderately reshape and straighten the nose. The injectables can also be used to improve the shape, size, and position of the nasal tip. The procedure, which takes just minutes, is performed right in our office and has no recovery time.
Dr. Rockmore has experience with over a thousand nasal surgeries, and is frequently asked to perform revision rhinoplasty to correct noses done elsewhere due to his expertise and experience. After your procedure, you will have a small plastic splint in place but can shower the next day. You will be asked to keep your head elevated for a week after your surgery and avoid heavy glasses and sunglasses while your nose heals. Most women and men can return to work within 10 days and are back to exercise within 2 weeks.
