Plastic Surgery Hair Restoration

At one point or another, each of our rhinoplasty patients have asked themselves whether or not they should commit to permanently changing their nose.

In this blog post, Dr. Wise, who is among the top rhinoplasty surgeons in NJ, can help you narrow down the four most important things to consider before undergoing nose surgery.

Do you feel your nose stands out to the point that it is distracting from your other facial features?

Whether we like it or not, our noses are the focal point of our faces, and a nose that doesn’t complement the rest of the features can draw attention away from your gorgeous smile, bright eyes, beautiful hairdo, and so forth. If you feel like your nose dominates your face, getting it surgically altered by a skilled, double-board certified facial plastic surgeon like Dr. Jeffrey Wise in New Jersey can undoubtedly bring harmony to the rest of your face.

A rhinoplasty with Dr. Wise can address several concerns, including:

  • a droopy nasal tip, often referred to as a “witch nose”
  • a large nasal bridge, or “nose hump”
  • a bulbous nose
  • a crooked nose, or asymmetry of the nose
  • a flat nose
  • breathing issues
  • asymmetric or flared nostrils

A new nose that not only looks natural, but complements the rest of your face, can also boost your confidence and self-esteem.

Are you over the age of 16?

Rhinoplasty can only be performed safely once the nose is fully done growing, which for girls is typically between the ages of 14-15, and boys around 15-16. Out of an abundance of caution, it’s best to wait until the nose is fully formed before undergoing rhinoplasty. There is no upper age limit for rhinoplasty, as long as you are in otherwise good health, and cleared by your doctor to undergo surgery.

Can you commit to the downtime?

Dr. Wise performs rhinoplasty surgeries as a same-day procedure in his Joint Commission accredited surgical facility in Wayne, NJ. He doesn’t use packing in the nose, allowing for a more comfortable initial recovery. The cast is typically removed around the one week mark, and most of the major swelling and bruising will resolve within the first few weeks. Strenuous activity should be avoided during the initial healing period. The recovery time for rhinoplasty varies per patient, and some minor swelling can last for several weeks and even months post-surgery. Rhinoplasty is a very complex surgery, where adjustments are made to bone, cartilage, as well as the surrounding tissues, and thus the new nose can take up to a year to settle into its final shape.

How do I choose the best doctor for my rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty is a permanent solution that requires a lot of skill and artistry. Specializing in facial plastic surgery, Dr. Wise has performed thousands of successful rhinoplasties. Certification by the American Board of Physician Specialties signifies the highest level of accreditation, which Dr. Jeffrey Wise in Wayne, New Jersey has achieved in both facial plastic surgery as well as otolaryngology, face and neck surgery.
