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.

How Much Does Rhinoplasty Cost in Rochester, NY?

This type of treatment is highly personalized to you, your cosmetic desires and the functionality of your nose. Because of this, the cost of your treatment is going to vary widely. The best way to find out the cost of your rhinoplasty is by scheduling a consultation with Dr. Kim. For your convenience, Natural Face™ also offers financing options that allow you to break up your bill into smaller, more manageable monthly payments.

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.

If you are interested in learning more about your cosmetic or functional rhinoplasty, contact us to schedule your consultation with Dr. Kim today.

I was working in Central New York and had an upcoming event and needed to get 2 areas of Dystport done. They were able to accommodate my schedule( as it was short notice) Dr. Kim’s entire staff was so friendly and welcoming!! During the procedure , even Nurse Dan held my hand and kept me smiling the whole time!! I was incredibly impressed with Dr Kim as he made sure he took the time to explain the process as well as not “ being rushed” something I have experienced with previous Doctors. I live in Florida but will be seeing Dr Kim from now on, and will be recommending their office to my fellow New Yorkers! It’s been almost 2 weeks since my appointment and the results are amazing!!! So happy! Thank you so much Dr Kim, Mary and the rest of the staff !

Dr. Kim is a world-class facial plastic surgeon. I’ve been to the top surgeons in the country from Beverly Hills to Miami and I found Dr. Kim to be superior. His face and neck lift were flawless and so natural that no one could tell I had anything done, but everyone said I looked ten years younger. As Syracuse is a discreet location, I would highly recommend anyone who wants a top notch face and neck lift to fly in. His bedside manner is as fantastic as his work. I can’t recommend Dr. Kim enough. I think he is the best Facial plastic surgeon in the country.

I am very happy with Dr. Kim and all of his staff. Not only did I have a surgical procedure done but I also go there every week for allergy shots and they couldn't be nicer. And Dr. Kim is awesome - - great bedside manner! I highly recommend them!!!

57 years old and wanted to start my new path in life retired...not looking tired! I did extensive research and sought out 5 surgeon recommendations. I was extremely impressed with Dr. Sang Kim for several reasons: 1 - He specialized in and only performs /neck surgeries, 2 - Dr. Kim is younger and probably more newly established, but there was no doubt that he is a perfectionist and a professional in his field, 3 - He is patient and really listens. I felt confident and trusted that he was giving me his best recommendation for my concerns, 4 - He didn't try to push unnecessary or extra procedures, 5 - I was impressed by how obvious it was that Dr. Kim's administrative and medical staff liked him and respected his work. But most of all, I am extremely satisfied with the results of my face lift!

I can't say enough good things about Dr. Kim. He is the most patient, professional, and personable physician I have ever had the pleasure of seeing. Instead of being rushed through the practice, every member of his staff made me feel welcome and important from the moment I walked through the door. He wouldn't perform a single procedure on me until he fully answered every minute question I had (all of which he eloquently and candidly answered); you can tell that his formal training was exceptional. His bedside manner and skilled technique easily make him one of the best kept secrets in Syracuse. I have referred numerous friends to him who have also, in turn, referred their friends. Make the consult and see for yourself... you won't be disappointed!

Dr. Kim and his staff were incredible. I had a face lift done this past summer and I was treated with dignity and respect by everyone. Dr. Kim is an exceptional surgeon and one of the nicest and kindest doctors I have ever met. I had a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend Dr. Kim and his entire staff. I recently went back to Dr. Kim for injections. Again my experience was wonderful. He explains everything he is going to do and what to expect. I didn't bruise and I love the fact that he doesn't overdo. He and his staff are just incredible. If I could give more than 5 stars I would.
