Let’s Get Nosy

Nose Surgery New York, NY

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), cosmetic procedures are on the rise, surgical and especially minimally invasive and non-surgical procedures. Interestingly, with the increase in these enhancement procedures, there has also been a decrease in “nose jobs,” or rhinoplasty, for the standard “perfect” nose. What has been happening in this area is a rise in reverse rhinoplasty.

Going Back to Natural

Some individuals who opted for smaller, thinner-looking noses in their teen or young adult years have now changed their minds. As the years roll on, they find they appreciate the natural shape of their nose. Some opt for a surgical return to the original look. Others find the effective, albeit temporary, contouring provided by dermal fillers to be sufficient.

The non-surgical option produces a natural look with no downtime. In fact, the injections are considerably less painful than a rhinoplasty, and some patients feel no discomfort at the injection site. Bruising is kept to a minimum, and many patients return to work after completing the procedure.

Medical Rhinoplasty

While many nose jobs are for cosmetic enhancement, there are medical reasons for having rhinoplasty also. If you are having difficulty breathing through your nose due to nasal obstruction, you may want to consider rhinoplasty. Nasal obstruction can interfere with several areas of your life. It can make sleeping difficult by contributing to sleep apnea and/or snoring. It can also make exercising challenging.

Less invasive treatments may be recommended to begin with. These may include nasal sprays or, for sleep apnea, treatment with a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machine or dental appliance. Rhinoplasty for cosmetic reasons is considered an elective and usually not covered by insurance; however, when it is recommended for medical reasons, it is generally covered.

Some medical reasons for rhinoplasty include:

  • Deviated septum
  • Injury to the nose
  • Repair of a birth deformity, such as cleft lip or cleft palate
  • Improve breathing through the nose
  • Sinus problems

When considering rhinoplasty for medical or cosmetic reasons, it is important to seek a well-qualified plastic surgeon with expertise and experience in this area.

What Dr. Khosh's Patients Say

Meredith G.
Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!
Jackie C.
Great front office, really good experience after what was a terrible accident. I was made to feel comfortable. Dr. Khosh is very good at what he does. I'm still healing but I'm confident of the results

After visiting and being evaluated by several doctors, I kept going back to Dr. Khosh. His tranquil spirit and professionalism were captivating. Thank you for a job well done and keeping me calm throughout the entire process. A special thanks to your staff Susan and Christine for all of their support as well. Hi highly recommend Dr. Khosh.

Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
Courtney G.
AMAZING!!!!!! I had Dr Khosh perform lipo on my chin/neck and my result is unbelievable! Better than I could have expected! I met with a couple of surgeons and the second I met with Dr Khosh I knew he was the one I was going with. He was compassionate and explained every detail of what would take place during the surgery and what to expect during recovery. I even emailed a few times during recovery with various questions and he got right back to me asap which was really comforting! I honestly fully recommend Dr Khosh, he did an amazing job and is an amazing person.

i can finally breathe!! Dr. Khosh made the entire experience a breeze, it was truly a pleasure to be under his care. I am forever thankful and highly recommend him. Not only does his work speak for himself, but he has excellent bedside manner. His kindness and patience is above and beyond. He takes the time to answer to every question you have to help you understand the process while at the same time making you feel so comfortable. From the first consultation i knew i was in good hands. I am so pleased with the result and forever thankful.
