An attractive face requires a balance of features, all centering around the nose. When the nose shape does not blend well with the other facial features, it can be distracting and result in the loss of harmony. Rhinoplasty has been one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries for decades due to its ability to improve the balance and beauty of the face.

When completed with artistry and skill, rhinoplasty can create a new nose shape that enhances the other features of the face. Joshua D. Rosenberg, MD, has spent many years helping his patients achieve the appearance they desire through cosmetic surgery and rhinoplasty. His expertise and talent can create a nose that perfectly matches the symmetry of the face, helping improve the self-confidence of his patients.

Common Nose Shape Problems

There is not one nose shape or size that is right for everyone. A nose should blend with other features of the face, including the cheekbones, eyes, mouth and chin. When the nose seems too large, flat or small, it draws attention away from the other features. An odd shape can also be distracting. Some of the common issues that patients want resolved when they are considering rhinoplasty include:

  • A large hump or bump on the bridge
  • Flared nostrils
  • A lifted or projected tip
  • A bulbous or round nose tip
  • Flat or “Asian” nose
  • A droopy nasal tip
  • Narrow or pinched nostrils
  • Crooked nose

Not only do these nose shapes impact the appearance of the face, but some can also impact the function of the nose. Some people with pinched or crooked noses may have nasal valve or septum disorders that impact breathing. Rhinoplasty can help improve the appearance. During surgery, functional issues can also be addressed to open airway passages for better breathing and health.

Types of Rhinoplasty Procedures

There are various options that are used to change the shape of the nose. Most rhinoplasties are performed as “closed” procedures, meaning the incision is made inside the nasal passage. This hides any scars and can be used on many alterations to the bridge and tip. A few types of nose jobs may require an “open” surgery, which is where the incision is made by the base of the nose. Even with an exterior incision, the scar is hidden and almost invisible once it is healed.

To change the shape of the nose, it is usually the cartilage that is reformed. Excess can be removed or shaped, or cartilage grafts can be used to add height or width. Stents, spreader grafts and other techniques can be used to alter the shape and size of the nose, as well as repair deformities that impact breathing. Due to the uniqueness of the nose, each surgery should be customized to the patient to create the best version to match their other facial features.

Choosing a Facial Plastic Surgeon for Your Nose Job

While most facial plastic surgeons perform rhinoplasty, not all have the same skills or training. Dr. Rosenberg belongs to an elite group of facial plastic and reconstructive surgeons that are dual board certified and have extensive experience in facial reconstruction. Whether rhinoplasty is needed to repair a nose affected by trauma, disease, genetic birth defects or strictly for cosmetic purposes, Dr. Rosenberg uses the most advanced techniques to create a balance of form and function. His artistry in creating a balanced appearance through rhinoplasty has met or exceeded the expectations of his patients.

Karmita Avila

I haven't the opportunity to meet the doctor yet, I have an appointment. I was referred by an ENT doctor in NJ, Dr. Douglas Leventhal, nice, young, excellent bed manners. Unfortunately he does not reconstruction nasal perforation, but he was very interested in helping me, and he referred me to a colleague in NY, and asked me wait a call from them, otherwise to call him back if they didn't contact me. Thanks GOD, they are very efficient and received, today two calls , I finally got to talk to Evelyn, very kind, and patient, gave me the appointment, I hope that my present health problem due to bad medical practice years ago, Dr. Rossenberg, can reconstruct my septum. I thank you from deep of my heart.
