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.

Dr. Imber has hands of gold. Everything he touches, he makes beautiful. Whether it’s an injection of a filler to a complete rhinoplasty, he takes his time, and always get the job done with expertise and precision. I’ve been to my share of physicians and I put Dr. Imber at the top of my list. His staff is compassionate to all of your needs, and they always anticipate the unexpected…a top notch office …all around… I would highly recommend Dr. Imber and his staff, thanks again!

Hows is Nasal Surgery Performed?

The operation is performed in the ambulatory suite under sedation of full anesthesia, and local. I virtually always perform a closed rhinoplasty, which means no visible scars. After surgery a dressing of paper tape strips and a plastic cast are worn for a week. There is post operative pain for the first night, and adequate medication is prescribed. Vigorous activities must be curtailed for several weeks after surgery.
