Do you have any problems breathing through your nose or do you have chronic nose or sinus complaints? Has a prior injury made your nose out of proportion to your other facial features?
Rhinoplasty or nose job surgery, is the surgical procedure that involves changing the shape and size of the nose. Dr. Ramtin Kassir MD performs this procedure for his NJ and NYC patients that involves reshaping the nasal bones and cartilages to produce a balanced and harmonious nose that blends with the person's facial features.
What is Rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty, or cosmetic nasal surgery, improves the shape and size of the nose. The procedure can remove a hump, change the shape of the nasal tip, and straighten the nose. The size and shape of the nostrils can be changed. The goal of rhinoplasty is often to achieve better harmony between the nose and the other facial features. Dr. Kassir is a triple board certified surgeon who has performed thousands of rhinoplasty surgeries for his patients and is considered to be one of the best Rhinoplasty surgeons in New Jersey and NYC.
Rhinoplasty has become one of the most popular facial plastic surgical procedures in recent years as more and more people seek to change the appearance of their noses. Many are unhappy with the nose they were born with while others have had the shape of the nose distorted from an injury. Disorders of nasal breathing and sinusitis often complicate the situation. A range of techniques are used to fully address the desired change in appearance as well as to improve nasal breathing and correct chronic sinus infections. Sinus surgery, if indicated, is done with endoscopes to avoid any visible incisions.
Rhinoplasty may be performed under general or sedation anesthesia on an outpatient basis. Most health insurance plans still provide some coverage for functional nasal surgery and sinus surgery.
