Rhinoplasty in Rochester, NY
A rhinoplasty is an increasingly popular procedure. While many people get rhinoplasty to enhance their appearance, some people get it done for more functional reasons. We are happy to offer rhinoplasty to residents of Rochester, NY and the neighboring communities.
What is a Functional Rhinoplasty vs. a Cosmetic Rhinoplasty?
Functional rhinoplasty is done strictly to improve one’s breathing and fix any functional issues the patient has with their nose. Often done to fix an obstructed airway, this procedure pays little attention to the perfection of the outward appearance of the nose and more attention to the structural integrity and functionality of the nose.
Cosmetic rhinoplasty, on the other hand, is for patients who want to fix the appearance of their nose due to a wide bridge, a bump in the nose, a bulbous tip or more. While functionality issues may be fixed during a cosmetic nose procedure, the main goal of this rhinoplasty is to fix any aesthetic issues with the nose to produce a result the patient desires.

What is a Consultation for Rhinoplasty Like?
During your consultation, Dr. Kim will sit down with you and listen to the concerns you have with your nose whether those concerns be functional or cosmetic. He will then take a close look at your nose and outline the possible underlying issues that cause the appearance of your nose and its overall functionality. He will provide you with a customized procedure plan complete with post-operative care instructions. During the course of your consultation, photos of your nose may be taken and manipulated to give you a better idea of what your nose will look like after the procedure.
What is a Procedure for a Rhinoplasty Like?
Your nose procedure can take as little as an hour or up to as long as two hours. For functional procedures, it is possible to complete the surgery without having changed the outward appearance of the nose. Depending on your personalized procedure plan, you may not even need any incisions to complete your rhinoplasty. If you do need incisions to be made, a small one will be made under the nose and be virtually invisible after healing.
