Nose Surgery (Rhinoplasty) in Paramus, NJ

As the most pronounced structural feature of the face, your nose can drastically affect how all the features of your face come together.

However, many people are unhappy with the appearance of their noses for various reasons—be it the size, shape, symmetry, or undesirable characteristics like humps on the bridge. These can be due to genetics, injury, or other factors. Dr. Nouri and his team are dedicated to fulfilling your desired shape every step of the way, from consultation to recovery. We’re here to guide you through the process and help you achieve a nose you love.

What Is Rhinoplasty?

Often referred to as a “nose job,” rhinoplasty (or nose surgery) is a procedure designed to improve the proportions of your nose and achieve a more attractive facial harmony. This procedure can also correct breathing issues. The result is a beautiful nose that enhances your overall facial harmony.

Rhinoplasty can address various features of the nose, including:

  • Overall nose size with respect to facial balance
  • Width of the nose bridge
  • Size and position of nostrils
  • Humps or depressions in the nose bridge
  • Enlarged, drooping, bulbous, or otherwise displeasing nasal tip
  • Nasal asymmetry

Am I a Candidate for Rhinoplasty?

Good candidates for rhinoplasty are physically healthy individuals who do not smoke and have realistic expectations. Young people can undergo rhinoplasty, but their facial growth should be completed before the procedure—otherwise, future surgeries may be required.

Schedule a consultation with Dr. Nouri to determine whether you are a candidate for rhinoplasty. Call us today at (973) 200-2050.

How Is Rhinoplasty Surgery Performed?

Rhinoplasty is an outpatient procedure performed under general anesthesia or intravenous sedation. Dr Nouri uses the following incision techniques:

Open Rhinoplasty

An open rhinoplasty allows your surgeon a better view of the nasal anatomy and the most maneuverability to reposition and reshape cartilage, bone, and nostrils. Incisions are placed outside the nose (across the columella), but scarring is minimal.


This procedure can be combined with open rhinoplasty or performed alone. A septoplasty is designed to correct a deviated septum: the cartilage dividing the nostrils is straightened, providing aesthetic and functional improvements.

What Can I Expect During My Rhinoplasty Recovery?

Following surgery, you will be monitored for an hour or so in a recovery area of the surgical facility. You will likely have a splint or nasal packing placed to support the new shape of your nose.

Swelling, bruising, and discomfort are normal parts of the recovery process. Most post-operative swelling after rhinoplasty resolves after several months, but residual swelling can take up to 1-2 years to completely settle. This is expected and normal.

Most patients can return to work, school, and normal activities after two weeks. You are advised to avoid strenuous activities until cleared by your surgeon.

In addition to offering the opportunity to thoroughly discuss any questions you have during your initial consultation before surgery, Dr. Nouri will provide detailed postoperative instructions.

When Will I See My Rhinoplasty Results?

The results of a rhinoplasty procedure are permanent. For the best results, make sure you follow all your surgeon’s preoperative and postoperative instructions and keep all follow-up appointments. Don’t hesitate to contact the office with any questions or concerns.
