Preservation Rhinoplasty Expertise
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Suzman offers different surgical options for his patients according to their needs. The most advanced technique available today is preservation rhinoplasty, where the nose is carefully lowered and received from inside rather than the more common in open fashion approaches where the nose is sculpted just below the skin. 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.

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. Age 16 is a typical minimum age. Having parental support is mandatory at this age. 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
Those who might not be the best candidates for a nose job include:
- Major medical or healing issues
- Significant depression, anxiety or mood issues that have not been adequately managed
- Patients with only minor shape issues that may be difficult to change
- Patients with thicker skin that might not be able to heal effectively
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. We take special measures to reduce swelling and discomfort with a special blend of local anesthetics and anti inflammation medications. Patients will need to keep their head above their chest to help improve swelling. Congestion is also common following rhinoplasty and improves over a few weeks. We do not use packing inside the nose in most cases. . After removing the splints, patients will be able to see and admire their newly shaped and contoured nose.
Plan Your Procedure
Your Best Face
The nose is often considered a focal point of our face, which is why it is important to ensure that your nose complements your overall facial aesthetic. For patients whose nose crooks one way or the other or those suffering from injuries to the nose, rhinoplasty may be a good option. We strive to give every patient the look they desire with advanced techniques and surgical options to make sure your new nose meets your cosmetic goals.
