Which New York residents are good candidates for nose surgery?

Dr. Edmund Kwan of New York has seen many patients in his practice requesting nose surgery. A rhinoplasty is a surgical treatment that is done to recontour the nose cosmetically. It can be done to change the appearance of the nose or to reconstruct the nose to facilitate breathing or address birth defects. In most cases, it is done to transform the nose aesthetically. Patients who consider rhinoplasty want to make changes such as:

  • Reduce the overall size of the nose.
  • Enlarge an unusually small nose.
  • Alter the bridge or tip of the nose.
  • Remove an unattractive hump on the bridge of the nose.
  • Narrow the distance between the nostrils.
  • Change the angle of the nose.
  • Alter the distance between the upper lip and the base of the nose.

During the initial consultation appointment, Dr. Kwan discusses with NY patients the benefits and risks of nose surgery. Just like any other surgical procedure, it carries the risk of infection and bleeding. However, patients who follow the aftercare instructions will experience fewer problems.

Dr. Kwan ensures that patients are proper candidates for treatments. Patients who are unhappy with the appearance of their nose and are in good medical health can benefit from nose surgery. Rhinoplasty can also be completed to address breathing issues and other medical conditions that require reconstruction of the nose. Patients are required to have realistic expectations of their surgical procedure and understand what they may experience before, during, and after their surgery.

Patients who have minor changes that need to be made may be a better candidate for a “non-surgical nose job.” This treatment uses injections such as dermal fillers to reshape the nose and contour the bridge, nostrils, or base of the nose in a more flattering way to achieve the look a patient desires. This is a much less invasive and more affordable alternative.

Dr. Kwan has years of experience offering New York patients a variety of surgical treatments. If you have been considering ways to address an imperfect nose, nose surgery or non-surgical alternatives may be one way to seek a more beautiful you!
