You’re thinking about getting a rhinoplasty, but you’re worried about the potential side effects. It’s time to learn more – the more you know about the side effects, the easier it’ll be to make an informed decision about the procedure.  The potential side effects of rhinoplasty range from minor to severe. Swelling in the nose and eye areas is a common side effect. Carefully resting ice packs against the affected areas will help the swelling go down, but it won’t fully subside for a fair amount of time. Be patient, wait for your tissues to heal, and you’ll be rewarded with [...]

Does your nose have a bump that makes you feel stared at, self-conscious, and uncomfortable? If so, dorsal hump rhinoplasty might be the right course of action for you.  When the bridge of the nose has a bump shape that makes the area convex rather than straight, this bump is called a dorsal hump. A hump can project prominently, and it’s especially visible in profile. To correct this nasal malformation, surgeons will use rhinoplasty to reduce or remove it. Find out more about dorsal hump rhinoplasty with a visit to skilled, respected plastic surgeon Dr. Farhad Rafizadeh, a board-certified medical practitioner serving the [...]

Many plastic surgeons consider rhinoplasty to be an art in itself. This is due to the level of detail involved. Giving someone a beautiful nose requires correcting and maintaining the delicate balance of nasal proportions. Correcting a wide nasal base is no exception. When a patient’s nose has several issues, including a wide nasal base, the lower third is only reduced after the upper thirds are dealt with. This is because the upper changes can affect the lower area, sometimes positively (making correction unnecessary) and sometimes negatively. Come to a skilled, board-certified plastic surgeon with extensive rhinoplasty experience – come to Dr. Farhad [...]

If the bones of the bridge of your nose are too prominent and the cartilage area between them is sunken, you may have an inverted V nasal malformation. This can be fixed with the help of rhinoplasty. An inverted V malformation pushes the upper lateral cartilages closer to the septum. When these are closer than they should be, the breathing path, called the nasal valve, becomes too thin. This causes a person to have problems with breathing. Clear your breathing path with the help of board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Farhad Rafizadeh, a skilled practitioner serving the Morristown area. Dr. Rafizadeh will perform [...]

The columella is the piece of skin and cartilage between the nostrils. If this area descends to a greater degree than normal, it is considered a hanging columella, a malformation that can be fixed with corrective rhinoplasty. A hanging columella, also known as alar-columellar disproportion, is a source of self-esteem issues for many people. Because the columella hangs lower than normal, more of the nostril areas show. With rhinoplasty surgery, a plastic surgeon is able to correct the proportions of the columella in relation to the rest of the nose, creating a more-natural look.

If your nose appears parrot-like, you may have a pollybeak malformation. When this malformation was caused by alterations to the nasal cartilage, this is called a cartilaginous pollybeak. It can be corrected using rhinoplasty surgery. A cartilaginous pollybeak is often caused during a previous rhinoplasty, when too much cartilage and bone gets removed from a dorsal hump and the underlying bridge area. The bridge support is reduced, making it so the skin sags downwards. This gives an overly full look to the supratip area. To remedy this type of pollybeak malformation, cartilage can be removed from the supratip area, evening out the [...]

Do you want to make your nose look less rounded and bulbous? One option for recontouring a bulbous tip is called dome binding. This rhinoplasty technique involves using permanent medical sutures to narrow the nasal tip region.  The nasal tip region is defined by the lower lateral cartilages, two structures within the nose. The area where they meet is called the dome. During dome binding, the sutures are placed through the dome and brought inwards and closer to each other, narrowing and straightening the nasal tip. For quality care and a skilled hand, see Dr. Farhad Rafizadeh for your bulbous tip correction procedure. Dr. [...]

Single stage breast reconstruction refers to an immediate breast reconstruction after mastectomy where instead of using an expander an implant is used so that there is no need for expansion and eventually the exchange of the expander to implant. This operation is not possible on every patient and it requires certain conditions to be met and a very accurate patient selection and perfect coordination with the oncologic surgeon. The quality of mastectomy is critical to get a successful result. In prophylactic mastectomy cases Dr. Rafizadeh could perform the mastectomy and the reconstruction at the same time and make sure that [...]

Trying to decide between surgical rhinoplasty and filler rhinoplasty? The first step is comparing and contrasting the procedures. There are many reason why filler rhinoplasty may be the right option for you. In the end, it all depends on your personal needs.  Surgical rhinoplasty can involve extensive, complex reconstruction of bone and cartilage, along with the implantation of grafts and synthetic implants. You can expect these procedures to last up to four hours. Filler rhinoplasty, on the other hand, is much less complex and only involves external injections. Because of this, the procedure can last as little as 15 minutes. Its lack [...]

If you’re having trouble breathing through your nose after a rhinoplasty procedure, a nasal collapse may have occurred. A nasal collapse is a situation where one or more parts of the nose have experienced a loss of structural integrity and may seem deflated or otherwise malformed.  Rhinoplasty involves reshaping and removing the cartilage of the nasal skeleton. Nasal collapses are usually a result of over-resection, which is when too much cartilage has been removed. The heaviness of the skin becomes more than the remaining cartilage can bear. Thus, people with thicker skin are more likely to experience this situation. Other reasons for [...]
