Dr. Rubinstein performed a rhinoplasty procedure for me a year before my wedding. The surgery went better than I expected and my results are wonderful. Dr. Rubenstein smoothed down the bump in my nose as well as adjusted the tip of my nose. My nose looks great and my appearance has been improved without any drastic changes to my natural look. Dr. Rubenstein was thorough, helpful, and a pleasure to have a surgery. On my wedding day I looked like myself with a perfect nose.

Ideal Candidates for a Rhinoplasty

Patients in good general health with realistic surgical expectations are likely good candidates for rhinoplasty. Patients interested in changing their appearance or improving their breathing issues can request a consultation to learn if they qualify for surgery.

Your Rhinoplasty Consultation

The Rhinoplasty Procedure – Nose Surgery

Rhinoplasty is defined as surgical alteration or correction of the nose. Rhinoplasty can address many areas of the nose, including the tip of the nose, the nostrils, the nasal passages, the bridge (nasal bones area), the slope, and much more.

The scope of each person’s rhinoplasty procedure will differ significantly, depending on each patient’s facial structure, needs, and goals. When you talk with Dr. Rubinstein in detail about your needs and goals, he will design a procedure that is ideally suited for you.

Patient Results

* All patients are unique and individual results may vary.

Open vs. Closed Rhinoplasty?

Dr. Rubinstein prefers to perform endonasal also known as “closed” rhinoplasty as there is no external scar along the columella.  The closed approach is more difficult to teach and perform which is why it’s not utilized by all surgeons.  There are other reasons that the closed approach is advantageous.   The skin covering is left in place allowing for more precise assessment of changes that are being made. Healing time is often reduced with less swelling.  Dr Rubinstein will use an open approach in select cases such as revision surgery or patients with severe asymmetries.  

Preservation vs. Structured Rhinoplasty?

Structured rhinoplasty, incorporating cartilage grafts from the septum, ear, or rib, serves various purposes: enhancing tip projection, treating asymmetries, and aiding functional or revision surgeries. It’s particularly useful in ethnic rhinoplasty, often combined with preservation methods for comprehensive results.

Rhinoplasty has seen notable advancements emphasizing preservation over excess cartilage and bone removal. Refinements now focus on reshaping these elements for natural results, minimizing the risk of delayed collapse and the need for later revisions.

After Rhinoplasty Surgery Recovery Period

Rhinoplasty surgery is a cosmetic procedure that reshapes the nasal structure to meet individual aesthetic goals. After the surgical procedure, performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon, patients can expect a recovery period of around two weeks. During this time, they should avoid strenuous activity and apply cold compresses to the nasal skin for comfort and patient safety. The length of recovery varies from patient to patient, so be sure to discuss expectations in your personal consultation before your rhinoplasty surgery. Daily activities such as light exercise and facial rejuvenation can resume after about a week or so, but it may take up to three months for full recovery.

Your Rhinoplasty Consultation

Your consultation is an essential step in your procedure. At your consultation, you will have a one-on-one session with Dr. Rubinstein, where you will share your desires and goals. For example, you should change the shape of your nose, improve your breathing, or address both functional and cosmetic issues.

Dr. Rubinstein will examine your nose, review your medical history, discuss your concerns, and answer all of your questions including how to communicate your procedure to your children or familiars.

Next, he will take some before photos, which he will use to create a detailed, computer-generated 3-D model of your facial structure. This model will be used to pre-plan the details of your procedure.

Possible Risks and Complications of Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure that carries inherent risks and complications. As with any surgery, all rhinoplasty patients should be aware of the potential risks before their initial consultation. Dr. Rubinstein ensures patient safety by providing an extensive evaluation of the nose before a surgical plan is made and by including follow-up visits after the surgery. Some of the possible risks include infection, bleeding, and scarring, as well as an unsatisfactory result that may require revisional surgery, such as in cases of a crooked nose or asymmetry.

Extended Deep Plane Facelift Cost

Rhinoplasty Cost

The cost of rhinoplasty varies depending on the individual patient’s treatment plan and cosmetic goals, as well as the experience of the rhinoplasty surgeon. On average, rhinoplasty costs range from $7,000 to $12,000 in the Hudson Valley area. This includes surgical fees, anesthesia fees, pre and post-operative care, and any additional costs associated with facial plastic surgery. Patients should work closely with their experienced rhinoplasty surgeon to ensure they get natural-looking results that meet their expectations.

Rhinoplasty Frequently Asked Questions

If you are considering nose surgery, you probably have lots of questions. Below are some of our patients’ most commonly asked questions.

What happens during a rhinoplasty procedure?

Rhinoplasty usually involves general anesthesia, while minor adjustments can use local anesthesia. Duration varies from one to three hours based on complexity, avoiding twilight anesthesia to prevent lung aspiration. Two techniques—open (small outer incision) and closed (internal nose incisions)—are chosen per patient needs. Dr. Rubinstein might recommend non-surgical filler injections, reducing procedure and recovery time yet necessitating periodic maintenance injections.

Will I need a revision after my surgery?

Dr. Rubinstein’s post-rhinoplasty revision rate is <10%, below the 25% national average. Despite skilled surgery, results can change due to healing, causing scarring, Polly beak, or nose shifting. Grafts in structured rhinoplasty may warp, creating asymmetries. Preservation methods reduce revisions compared to aggressive surgery, preventing nasal collapse. Follow-ups, either in person or via Zoom, catch early changes, preventing major corrections. Cortisone injections can prevent scar tissue or bone regrowth.

How long before I can go back to work after rhinoplasty?

As long as your work does not involve heavy physical or heavy lifting, most patients return to work within the first week after their rhinoplasty. Patients are increasingly working remotely. They can return to work as early as 48 to 72 hours post-surgery.

When will I see the full results of my rhinoplasty procedure?

You will be able to see some of the results of your rhinoplasty in as little as 7 to 14 days. By six weeks, 75% of the results are obtained, especially on the bridge of the nose. The full effects, especially changes to the nasal tip, may take up to one year. Revision cases requiring extensive rebuilding with cartilage can take up to two years. Dr. Rubinstein will explain the expected results during the consultation.

Can my insurance cover the rhinoplasty procedure?

Insurance covers functional issues like a deviated septum or chronic sinusitis during surgery. Beware of surgeons promising to bill a large portion to insurance. Dr. Rubinstein, an out-of-network provider, discovered incorporating functional aspects into rhinoplasty cost is often more cost-effective for patients. Submitting to insurance can result in copays and high deductible expenses for surgery, anesthesia, and facility fees.
