RHINOPLASTY IN MANHATTAN, NYC
Concerned about a larger-than-normal nose? Embarrassed by a hooked nose or particularly bulbous nose? Rhinoplasty (colloquially known as a “nose job”) performed by board-certified Manhattan plastic surgeon and general surgeon Richard W. Swift, Jr., M.D., F.A.C.S. can remedy these issues and much more.
WHAT IS RHINOPLASTY?
Rhinoplasty is a medical treatment to correct the cosmetic appearance of the nose. There are numerous concerns that may be treated: hooked or curved noses, bulging noses, the size of nostrils, a wide or disproportional nose as compared to the rest of the face, and so much more. Additionally, rhinoplasty is beneficial for solving septum issues that may be hindering breathing. Your septum is the bone and cartilage partition between your nasal passages and many medical issues are caused by a deviated or irregular septum.
BENEFITS OF A RHINOPLASTY
The benefits for patients are endless! In addition to patients telling us they feel fantastic after their treatments, they also appreciate these additional advantages:
Less awkwardness and embarrassment about their nose
Higher self-confidence and self-esteem
Better peace of mind and improved self-image

Make sure to remember that each individual’s case is different. You will learn more about the results you can expect from your treatment or surgery during your consultation with the doctor.
HOW IS RHINOPLASTY PERFORMED?
The incision is usually made inside the nose so it is not visible. The cartilage is raised, allowing Dr. Richard Swift to make necessary alterations to the individual’s nose.
If the nose is going to be enhanced, cartilage may be used from the septum. In the case that he is operating on your nose for medical reasons, Dr. Swift will adjust your septum to the proper position in order to make it easier to breath. As the procedure is becoming completed, Dr. Swift will close your incisions and the nose will be bandaged for optimal healing.
PREPARING FOR RHINOPLASTY
Rhinoplasty is an outpatient procedure, which means you will be able to leave the clinic after the approximately two-hour-long surgery. You will be given anesthesia or IV sedation in order to put you under and prevent you from feeling any unpleasantness.
Recovery may cause your nose to be swollen, tender, or bruised for several days, but the majority of patients are able to return to work within a week of the treatment. At first, the swelling with temporarily mask the results, but as it goes down, the true nature of your nose treatment will show itself. However, it could take up to a year to see full results of the procedure.
IS RHINOPLASTY RIGHT FOR ME?
If the size, shape, or appearance of your nose leaves you unhappy and you understand realistically the results rhinoplasty can achieve for you, then you may be a perfect candidate for the nose surgery.

HOW MUCH DOES RHINOPLASTY COST?
Costs for your nose surgery will vary depending on the extent of surgery or the number of treatments needed to achieve your desired result.

Dr. Swift accepts payment via cash, check, or credit card, as well as Alphaeon Healthcare Lending as a financing option.
