Is Rhinoplasty Right For You?

Plastic Surgery for New York City (NYC), Manhattan and all of New York (NY)

Thanks to its central position, your nose is a distinguishing feature. Perhaps you've experienced a trauma to your nose, or simply have never thought of it as symmetrical with your face.

Whatever the reason, Dr. George Lefkovits is a skilled New York City double Board Certified plastic surgeon who can help you with the rhinoplasty process.

Rhinoplasty involves an operation that can change your nasal profile, and alter the size and shape of your nose. Rhinoplasty can also be done in order to rectify the following nasal problems:

  • A deviated septum
  • Enlarged turbinates (structures lying within the side walls of your nose)

In preparing for your rhinoplasty surgery, you need to be ready to a take a little time off from work, oftentimes around one week. You will also need to be prepared to hold off from vigorous activity for up to six weeks.

While there isn't a set age that determines when a candidate is old enough for rhinoplasty, it typically is best to wait until your face has stopped growing, usually around 15 years old. It is also important to be confident in your decision to have rhinoplasty.

If you  are considering rhinoplasty, please contact Dr. George Lefkovits for your initial consultation. Call (212) 750-9494 to benefit from his experience today.
