Case ID: 3579




Patient is a 24 year-old woman who is accompanied by her mom and presents to my office to discuss nose reshaping surgery (rhinoplasty). They were referred to me as their New Jersey plastic surgeon by a friend who is a patient of mine. This 24 year-old woman complains of external nasal deformity. She claims that she dislikes the hump on her nasal bridge and feels that the base of her nose is wide and that her upper lip is short. She particularly dislikes her nose on profile. Physical examination confirms the nasal dorsal convexity and the wide bony base. There is a prominence of the nasal spine, rounding the nasal labial angle. The tip dips on active smiling. There is a slight nasal septal deviation, but airflow is not terribly restricted. There is a fairly large turbinate on the right. I offered this healthy, young woman, an aesthetic rhinoplasty (nose reshaping) to be performed in my New Jersey plastic surgery facility. On the morning of surgery, she came to my New Jersey plastic surgery facility for her aesthetic rhinoplasty. She met my highly skilled team of O.R. nurses (most of whom she met during her consultation and pre-operative visits) as well as my board certified anesthesiologist. Following her plastic surgery New Jersey rhinoplasty, she recovered with our plastic surgery nurse before being discharged for home with her mother. The following day she returned to my office to have her packing removed. She was very surprised that although she had bruising she had no pain. She returned to my office a week later for splint removal at which time she was able to return to most of her daily activities. She is very happy with her early results and can expect to see subtle changes over the next several months.
