Nose Surgery/Rhinoplasty

Why have surgery to change the appearance of your nose? Some possible reasons might be: you have the nose of your parent or other relative and want it to look more refined, you are having trouble breathing, when you look in the mirror your nose seems to be out of proportion, oversized, the wrong shape for your face, has a noticeable hump or just does not make you happy. Another candidate for nasal surgery is the older patient. Oftentimes as people age, their noses become larger or elongated. Additionally, sports injuries cause problems with the nose that may motivate people to have a “nose job”.

It is very important when you choose someone to repair your nose that you go to an experienced and artistic doctor. Some doctors are famous for giving all their patients basically similar looking noses. However, what would look good on one patient’s face might not look good on another’s. This is why it is important to look for a surgeon who is artistic; you want someone who can visualize a new personalized nose on your face before he operates on you. Dr. Joshua Halpern is such a doctor and will do his best to match a new nose to your individual face. You can not train someone to be artistically gifted; having that eye has to be a part of their natural talent.


Dr. Halpern uses the latest techniques for

reshaping the nose. While some doctors perform destructive rhinoplasties in which cartilage and bone is removed, Dr. Halpern reshapes the nose using advanced suturing techniques as well as adding cartilage grafts—true artistic reshaping. It is important to have an aesthetically pleasing, as well as, a well-functioning nose. Dr. Halpern can help you achieve both. Since your nose is the most prominent feature in the face, it is very noticeable and you want to make sure it is flattering and that you feel it is a reflection of you. One of the positive side effects of having your nose fixed is that before the surgery most people focus on their nose and don’t feel comfortable with it when they look in the mirror. After having nasal surgery, most people notice their whole face when looking in the mirror and no longer obsess about their noses. It is the absence of a nuisance that stops being a distraction, and the patient’s self confidence improves. After surgery you just feel like everyone else—pretty good!

Some of the procedures that Dr. Halpern might utilize to improve the appearance of a patient’s nose:

  • remove the hump
  • add height to the nose
  • narrow the nose
  • lift the tip
  • create a nicer looking tip
  • refine a boxy tip
  • narrow the nostrils

Dr. Joshua Halpern utilizes his Finesse Technique in performing rhinoplasties. This involves significantly less pain, with most patients being surprised at how good they feel after surgery. The Finesse Technique also involves less bruising and swelling, as well as a quicker recovery.

Patients have come from all over the world (Europe, Asia, Russia, the Middle East, Africa, South America and the United States) to have their noses repaired by Dr. Halpern.

After surgery Dr. Halpern does not pack the nose, which is painful and uncomfortable. Many other doctors do pack the patient’s nose. Some patients claim that when the packing is removed it is so painful that it feels like they are getting their brains pulled out through their nose. Some patients feel like they are in shock by the time it is over.
