A nose job is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures and is commonly performed by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Suzman on a wide variety of candidates. A rhinoplasty can be performed for cosmetic purposes to treat oversized noses and unwanted nasal defects. Nose surgery can also be used to treat nasal passage issues that are obstructing the breathing or that have been damaged in an injury. After the patient's confidential consult at WESTMED Group in Westchester County, NY, or Greenwich, CT, Dr. Suzman will help to create an individualized treatment plan that allows the patient to customize their results as ideally as possible. A rhinoplasty is a very effective way to reconstruct and reshape the nose by altering its structure and surrounding tissue for both cosmetic and health purposes.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Suzman offers different surgical options for his patients according to their needs. Some patients may only want their tip changed. Others just want an injury corrected. Many want revision rhinoplasty to correct something that they are unhappy with from a previous surgery. While being featured on the the TV show Botched may not be everyone's goal, finding the best plastic surgeon for rhinoplasty in something all patients look for, in NY, and throughout the US. While no plastic surgeon can promise perfection, Dr. Suzman can assure you that he will do all he can to meet your goals and expectations of a great rhinoplasty result.
"BEST EXPERIENCE EVER! Dr. Suzman was so accommodating, friendly, and he answered all of my questions with great care and detail. Along with Dr. Suzman, every Doctor and Nurse who helped me was so nice and patient, making it so I was not nervous at all. My rhinoplasty went so incredibly smoothly. I was in barely any pain, and I had little to no bruising! I am so beyond happy with the results and I would recommend Dr. Suzman to anyone any day!"- P.S. / Google / Aug 23, 2021
"Mini facelift, chemical peel and upper eyelid blepharoplasty - 3 months post-op - Highly Recommend. Dr Suzman performed a mini facelift, including a chemical peel and blepharoplasty surgery on my upper eyes. One of my eyes had ptosis. Two other high rated Westchester surgeons told me they "wouldn't touch my eyes". Lucky me! I couldn't be happier. Friends, family and clients tell me I look "phenomenal" constantly."- T. / RealSelf / Feb 06, 2022

"Dr. Suzman closed after my MOHS surgery. The surgery was front & center on my nose. I have to say -- Dr. Suzman & the staff at his office, as well as the Rye Ambulatory Center, made a painful and uncomfortable situation as pleasant as possible with his informative, calming & pleasant nature, as well as a super-delightful staff. Helen Reyes, his PA-C, who handled a lot of my post-op visits and fresh wound care, was superb. Highly recommend."- G.D. / Google / Oct 26, 2019

It has only been about a week since my surgery, and I am already thrilled with the results."- M. / Healthgrades / Jul 22, 2020
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.
