Whether you are seeking a minor adjustment or a more dramatic transformation, Dr. Diktaban can offer you refined and natural-looking results right here in the heart of Manhattan.

What is Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty, commonly referred to as a ‘nose job,’ is a surgical procedure that modifies the shape of the nose to enhance both its function and aesthetic appeal. It is one of the most sought-after plastic surgeries in Manhattan and across the globe due to its transformative capacity.

What to Expect During Your Procedure

Rhinoplasty begins with a comprehensive consultation wherein you and Dr. Diktaban’s team discuss your specific needs, medical history, and expectations. During rhinoplasty surgery, Dr. Diktaban begins by making careful incisions inside the nostrils or across the base of the nose, ensuring minimal visible scarring. He then reshapes the nasal bone and cartilage to achieve the desired aesthetic or functional improvements, such as reducing or increasing the size of the nose, refining the nasal tip, or correcting asymmetry. Once the reshaping is complete, the incisions are meticulously closed, and the nose is bandaged to support the new structure and aid in healing.

Recovery from Rhinoplasty

While healing times vary between individuals, you can generally expect the majority of swelling and bruising to subside within two weeks. During this time, you will need to wear a nasal splint or cast to support the newly shaped nose and minimize swelling. Patients may experience bruising, swelling around the eyes, and mild discomfort, which can be managed with prescribed medications and cold compresses. It’s common for nasal congestion and breathing difficulties to occur temporarily. Most individuals can return to work or school within 1 to 2 weeks, though strenuous activities and contact sports should be avoided for several weeks to allow for full healing. Over the following months, swelling gradually diminishes, revealing the final results of the surgery, which continue to refine and settle over time. Regular follow-up visits with Dr. Diktaban will help monitor progress and ensure optimal healing and cosmetic outcomes.

Is Rhinoplasty Right for You?

Deciding if rhinoplasty is right for you involves considering both aesthetic goals and potential functional improvements. If you are unhappy with your nose’s size, shape, or symmetry, or if you have breathing difficulties due to nasal structure issues, rhinoplasty may be a suitable option. Candidates should be in good overall health, have realistic expectations about the outcomes of the procedure, and understand the recovery process involved. A consultation with Dr. Diktaban is essential to discuss your concerns, evaluate your nasal anatomy, and determine if rhinoplasty aligns with your desired goals for facial harmony and self-confidence.
