What is a Nose Job (Rhinoplasty)?
A rhinoplasty can correct many concerns people have about their noses, including size, shape, width, or the presence of a bump or undesirable angle. Fixing each of these problems requires a slightly different approach, but Dr. Stein specializes in rhinoplasty and will develop a treatment plan to help you achieve your desired results.
How Does a Nose Job Work?
Dr. Stein performs rhinoplasty under IV or “twilight” sedation, which carries fewer risks than full anesthetic while still protecting you from feeling any discomfort. Incisions occur either inside the nose (a closed rhinoplasty) or along the creases of the nose (an open rhinoplasty). Either way, no visible scars remain. Depending on the type of procedure, Dr. Stein may replace pieces of cartilage in your nose, reshape the existing cartilage, or otherwise manipulate the structure of the nose to give the desired results.
