Artistic Approach to the Natural Looking Nose

Rhinoplasty or nose job

Nose job or rhinoplasty, is one of the most common procedures performed in New York City today. Rhinoplasty surgery not only reshapes the nose, but also has a significant effect on the balance of your facial features. Reshaping the nose includes removal of the dorsal hump, narrowing a wide tip, lifting a droopy nose, straightening a crooked nose, reducing the size, and more.

Rhinoplasty surgery is performed in a surgical center. The patient is usually discharged about 2-3 hours after surgery. After 5 days Dr. Shahar removes a small splint over the patient’s nose . After the procedure some swelling and possibly some bruising may appear under the eyes. This is absolutely common and normal. It usually alleviates within a week or so. The minimal discomfort is easily controlled with analgesics (pain killers). Final results may take months of recovery time, but the improvement lasts indefinitely.


Rhinoplasty and nose jobs aren’t purely cosmetic treatments either. Many patients consider these nasal procedures to help with difficult breathing and extreme sinus problems. Dr. Shahar will review your personal case and check for obstructions or causes for your problems.

MY patients

"After surgery, during which my nose also had to be realigned due to a fracture from a childhood accident, recovery was minimal! My bandages came off in 5 days and a week later I had no more bruising! You know the doctor did a precise cautious job when there is minimal bruising or other signs of damage. Pre and post-surgery service and attention was excellent, taking care to answer any of my concerns and honestly approaching any challenge. I couldn’t be happier with the results! Dr. Shahar made my face look like it was meant to."
