The procedures for rhinoplasty surgery in NYC are universal. However, the choice of doctor makes a substantial difference for the comfort of the patient and also the final outcome of surgery. The first step in rhinoplasty surgery involves receiving anesthesia. Incisions are then made inside the nose. After incisions are made, the tissues of the nose are accessed, enabling Dr. Breitbart to skillfully reshape the nose structure and perform the rhinoplasty. NYC surgeon Dr. Breitbart sculpts the nose to a desirable shape and then repositions the nasal skin.
Your doctor may perform additional incisions to alter the size of the nostrils. Patients are advised to rest after surgery for rhinoplasty. NYC patients of Dr. Breitbart follow up in the office within a week. Although the nasal improvement is evident within a week, some swelling occurs for the first few weeks after rhinoplasty.
