New Jersey Rhinoplasty Surgeon – Dr. Zubowski
Serving Bergen County & Paramus
Rhinoplasty, commonly referred to as a nose job, is Dr. Zubowski’s most popular plastic surgery procedure. It can change the size of your nose or nostrils, correct its humped or hooked appearance, or alter the tip, bridge, slope, or angle of your nose. While you may undergo this procedure for cosmetic purposes, it can also be used to improve breathing, reduce snoring, alter a birth defect, or help heal or conceal an injury.
The majority of rhinoplasty procedures are performed using the open rhinoplasty method. This means that the skin of the nose is cut and lifted away from the bone and cartilage framework beneath, then shaped and sculpted, as Dr. Zubowski feels fit. To complete the open nose surgery, the skin is re-draped over the nasal framework, and a splint is applied to help the nose maintain its new form. Depending on your needs, Dr. Zubowski may place nasal packs or soft splints into your nostrils for additional stability.
You can expect bruising, swelling, and minor discomfort of your nose after the procedure. However, Dr. Zubowski will prescribe medication to help alleviate these side effects, and cold compresses can further reduce discomfort and swelling. Splints, packing, and stitches will be removed about a week after the procedure, at which you may resume normal, moderate activities. The majority of any visible swelling and bruising will usually disappear within two weeks. Strenuous physical activities may be resumed within a few months of your procedure.
