Rhinoplasty

We Empower Beauty. ®

Rhinoplasty, also known as a nose job, is a surgical procedure that improves the appearance of the nose. Nose surgery, septoplasty, or septorhinoplasty can also correct breathing problems associated with structural issues involving a deviated septum and nasal wall support called the nasal valve. Rhinoplasty can refine the shape, angle, width, structure, and other nasal features for individuals who are dissatisfied with the appearance and function of their noses. At his New York, Park Avenue practice, Dr. Steven Pearlman regularly performs rhinoplasty for men and women from across the United States as well as many international patients. He also frequently instructs other surgeons on both primary and revision rhinoplasty, lecturing on the most up-to-date techniques used for nose surgery around the world.

Who Can Benefit From Rhinoplasty?

Aesthetic Issues

Patients who are dissatisfied with the appearance of their nose can benefit from rhinoplasty. Rhinoplasty can correct the outer shape, size, and projection (how far the nose sticks out from the face) of the nose and/or nostrils to balance the facial features and improve facial harmony. Aesthetic issues that may lead a person to pursue rhinoplasty include genetic abnormalities, congenital deformities, and injuries. Mirror® 2D and Vectra® 3D Computer Imaging are made available for patients to view the projected outcome of their rhinoplasty during their consultation. Dr. Pearlman performs rhinoplasty to achieve the best aesthetic results for the patient’s unique anatomy, personal preferences, and ethnicity.

Rhinoplasty Options

  • Traditional (Surgical) Rhinoplasty

    Surgical rhinoplasty may be performed using an open or closed technique. The appropriate technique will depend on the patient’s specific needs and preferences.

    Closed Rhinoplasty*

    • Performed under general anesthesia or twilight sedation
    • Extremely low chance of visible scarring; all incisions are internal
    • Less postoperative swelling

    Open Rhinoplasty

    • Performed under general anesthesia or twilight sedation
    • Allows the surgeon the most visibility throughout the procedure when there is  distorted anatomy, such as in revision rhinoplasty
    • Incisions are made on the underside of the nose
    • Dr. Pearlman’s primary reasons for performing open rhinoplasty are a crooked nose,  marked reduction in nasal tip projection, and complex revision rhinoplasty

    *Although Dr. Pearlman can expertly perform both techniques, he uses closed rhinoplasty for many primary rhinoplasties and has over 30 years of experience doing so. Equal (if not better) results can be obtained without an incision across the bottom of the nose when the surgeon has experience in thousands of rhinoplasties and an in-depth understanding of nasal anatomy.

What Patients Are Saying...

Dr Pearlman did a great job and I would recommend him to anyone for facial surgery. I thought he could have answered my questions and concerns a little more in depth before the surgery and even after, but he really knows what he is doing. I didn’t feel like I could totally ask him anything I want without being annoying, but maybe I am just used to people in that business who are a little more chatty. In the end, I was very happy I chose him."

Rhinoplasty FAQs

  • When is open rhinoplasty recommended?

    Open rhinoplasty allows better visualization of distorted nasal anatomy when the nose is very crooked, when the nose is significantly over-projected (sticks out very far), or when Dr. Pearlman is performing a complex revision rhinoplasty. In these cases, the open technique allows for more precise correction and easier manipulation of the nasal cartilage and graft placement. The incision is very tiny; in most circumstances, it is visible only up close to the trained eye. With sunscreen protection, the scar should fade.

  • How do I know if I need septoplasty?

    Open rhinoplasty allows better visualization of distorted nasal anatomy when the nose is very crooked, when the nose is significantly over-projected (sticks out very far), or when Dr. Pearlman is performing a complex revision rhinoplasty. In these cases, the open technique allows for more precise correction and easier manipulation of the nasal cartilage and graft placement. The incision is very tiny; in most circumstances, it is visible only up close to the trained eye. With sunscreen protection, the scar should fade.
