If you look at our gallery, you can get an idea of our Rhinoplasty Aesthetic. This is important, because it is not just having good execution or surgical skills. A surgeon needs to understand what the proper aesthetic goal should be, with a tasteful and experienced eye. Only then can they learn how to achieve this goal. Without understanding the goal that the patient and aesthetic ideal are, even a high level of execution will fail to achieve good results.

Our aesthetic consists of a strong, straight bridge, (without the old-school rhinoplasty over-reduction of course). It also avoids over-rotation (turning-up) of the tip, especially in men, and a well-defined, but not overly narrow appearance. In summary, our aesthetic is one of effectively re-sizing the nose to the rest of the face, both at tip, lip, and bridge, while maintaining a normal, natural, and non-operated appearance.

What Happens During a Rhinoplasty?

After thorough consultation, photos, and pre-operative discussions, Dr. Stupak has one more discussion with the rhinoplasty patient at the surgery center the morning of surgery. The surgery center is located in Trumbull, is a great facility with an outstanding team – see their website for more information.

Rhinoplasty typically takes about two hours or less, and people can go home after a short stay in the recovery room. Most rhinoplasties can be done via an inside-the-nostrils approach, but for delicate tip procedures, an open procedure can be performed if agreed upon by patient and surgeon. An individualized approach can always be achieved with good communication between surgeon and patient. Pre and Post operative surgery instructions can be found below.
