EXCELLENCE AND EXPERIENCE IN PLASTIC SURGERY

Nasal Surgery

Based in New York City

Nasal surgery, or rhinoplasty, is a well known and very popular procedure. The object is to create a natural looking nose, in harmony with other facial features. The nasal bones and cartilage may be reduced or repositioned to make the profile finer, the angle different, or the width reduced. The important thing is to express your desires, study your photos at consultation and talk through the options. Virtually anything is possible, but common sense, and good taste should be the rule.

Dr. Imber's Tips

Here, there is no substitute for experience. I’ve always told my students that until you have done a few hundred rhinoplasties you won’t really have a handle on it. There are 3 things to know. Communicate fully with the surgeon regarding expectations, find a surgeon who’s taste is congruent with yours, and most importantly a surgeon with significant experience. This is a delicate procedure on the center of your face, and something you only want to do once.

My policy is to alter professional photographs with the patient until we reach a “look” that satisfies the both of us, and is reproducible at surgery.
