What Problems Can Rhinoplasty Resolve?

Rhinoplasty in New York City

Any surgeon who takes a one-size-fits-all approach to rhinoplasty is not doing his or her job. At Greenwald Plastic Surgery, Dr. Joshua Greenwald understands that a nose job is very much a customized procedure. Among the concerns that Dr. Greenwald has been able to resolve with his expert rhinoplasty skills are:

Straightening a Misaligned Nose

For some people, a crooked nose is the result of a physical injury to the face and for others it is merely a genetic trait. Whatever the cause, Dr. Greenwald can readjust the nasal bones and septum for a straighter appearance.

Repositioning the Nose’s Tip

Pleas to address the tip of the nose during rhinoplasty are among the most frequent requests Dr. Greenwald receives. Whether you feel the tip of your nose is too rounded, pointy, flat, or you want it to turn slightly more upward or downward, all of these changes can be achieved by a skilled surgeon such as Dr. Greenwald.   

Enabling Better Breathing

Rhinoplasty is not always about aesthetic concerns. Depending on the severity of the issue, patients with a deviated septum can have more difficulty breathing or even develop sleep apnea. By straightening the septum, Dr. Greenwald can help you to breathe more naturally out of your nostrils.

Changing the Size of the Nose

If the size of your nose does not feel proportional to the rest of your face, Dr. Greenwald can remove cartilage and bone to reduce the size. Way more often than not, patients want a smaller nose, but it is also possible to make the nose larger — men in particular hope it will add to their masculinity — with cartilage grafting.

Removing a Bump on the Nose

Everyone has encountered noses that feature a hump on the bridge. Although there is nothing inherently wrong with this kind of bump, some patients feel it is a more prominent feature than they want to carry around permanently, so Dr. Greenwald can smooth it out via rhinoplasty.  

Altering Nostril Size 

Patients who specifically do not like the size of their nostrils (be they too large, small, wide or narrow) can attain a different look with the help of rhinoplasty. By removing tissue or repositioning the nasal tip, Dr. Greenwald can alter the general appearance of your nostrils.

Believe it or not, this list is hardly complete when it comes to the kinds of changes rhinoplasty can accomplish. To talk over any and all concerns you may have about your nose with one of New York’s most esteemed surgeons, schedule a consultation at one of Dr. Greenwald’s three offices.
