"Rhinoplasty - I highly recommend Dr. Michael Suzman for rhinoplasty! He had excellent bedside manner and answered all my questions before having the procedure done. After the surgery I had no bruising and little swelling thanks to a homeopathic pill from Whole Foods he recommended to me. After just a week, my cast came off and I was mesmerized by my new nose. He did an amazing job, a true artist. If you are considering plastic surgery, go in for a consultation and you won't be disappointed."- Anonymous / Vitals / Aug 04, 2013

Rhinoplasty offers many benefits to patients looking to enhance their facial appearance. This procedure can be performed at any age however, it is suggested that children and teens wait to undergo this procedure until their facial growth is complete. Good candidates for rhinoplasty may have any of the following nasal issues:
- A disproportionate nose
- Deviated septum
- Enlarged nasal tip
- Excessively flared nostrils
- Crooked or off-center nasal bridge
What to Expect
Rhinoplasty is usually performed as an outpatient procedure with the patient under local or general anesthesia. Each patient's surgical experience will differ due to their individual needs and goals. There are a number of approaches and techniques that can be used during nose surgery, including open and closed rhinoplasty. When augmenting the nose, the surgeon can take cartilage or soft tissues from deep within the nose or the grafts may be harvested from other areas of the body such as the ear or scalp temporal fascia.
Following surgery, patients can expect to have swelling and bruising around the nose and eyes for approximately 2 weeks. Patients will need to keep their head above their chest to help improve swelling. Congestion is also common following rhinoplasty and may be caused by the splints and nasal packing worn the first few days post-surgery. After removing the splints, patients will be able to see and admire their newly shaped and contoured nose.
