A Nose that Brings Harmony to the Face

Natural-looking, transformative results with Dr. Renata Khelemsky in New York

In 2020, over 350,000 Rhinoplasty were performed in the United States—making it one of the top three most frequently performed cosmetic surgeries, according to a report by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. At RENATA Facial Cosmetic Surgery in Brooklyn, Dr. Renata Khelemsky offers patients both surgical and non-surgical options for Rhinoplasty to create balanced and naturally pleasing results. As a double board-certified facial cosmetic and reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Renata Khelemsky specializes in aesthetic surgery for the face and neck.

What is Rhinoplasty?

A cosmetic change with a transformational difference to your self-esteem.

At RENATA Facial Cosmetic Surgery in Brooklyn rhinoplasty is often referred to as a “nose job.” Rhinoplasty offers a permanent solution for reshaping and ultimately improving the outside appearance of your nose. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, Rhinoplasty is a top requested procedure, with over 200,000 surgeries performed every year in the United States. There are many specific reasons to undergo a cosmetic Rhinoplasty, such as straightening a crooked nose, reducing the bump from the side or profile view, refining the shape of the tip of the nose, or making changes to create a more slender nose that naturally blends with the overall facial appearance. There may also be functional reasons to undergo Rhinoplasty, such as the need to straighten a deviated nasal septum, expand the internal nasal passages, and repair fractures or deformities of the nose that may have resulted from prior accidents or trauma.

Many patients have a combination of issues that require both external and internal changes to the nose. Selecting a surgeon specialized in facial cosmetic procedures and who is highly experienced in all aspects of nasal surgery will ensure that you receive the proper attention to all aspects of your nasal shape and function, as they are intimately related and require a highly skilled approach to create a well-rounded and successful surgical plan. Proper planning and thorough evaluation the first time around will minimize the chances of additional or revision surgeries in the future. Even patients who are motivated to reshape the nose for purely cosmetic reasons may discover that their breathing can still greatly improve with Rhinoplasty due to certain features about their anatomy.

How do I know if Rhinoplasty is right for me?

The ideal candidate for cosmetic Rhinoplasty must be in overall good health and have realistic expectations about surgical outcomes.

If you are bothered by the appearance of your nose, or feel that your nose is not proportional or well matched to the overall facial appearance, then cosmetic Rhinoplasty may be a safe and excellent option for you. Patients who are eligible for cosmetic surgery must be in good overall health and have completed their phase of facial growth and development. The nasal bones must be fully matured before electing to make cosmetic changes to the nose. In most cases, female patients older than 16 years of age, and male patients older than 17 years of age, may consider Rhinoplasty.

In cases where surgery is focused strictly on functional issues due to traumatic injuries, nasal surgery may be an option even at younger ages. During your initial personalized consultation, Dr. Khelemsky will explore your concerns and wishes, perform a thorough examination of the nose, and determine the best course of action to achieve your goals. New York rhinoplasty surgeon, Dr. Khelemsky will also review your medical and surgical history and obtain an X-ray, if indicated, to ensure that you are an optimal candidate for cosmetic surgery.

What is the difference between Rhinoplasty and Liquid Rhinoplasty?

Personalized Care | Unparalleled Attention

Liquid Rhinoplasty is a non-surgical treatment that uses dermal fillers to add volume and to contour certain areas of the nose, creating an improvement in the overall shape and proportion. The most common Liquid Rhinoplasty treatment is to diminish the appearance of a nasal bump along the bridge. By adding filler above and below the bump, as well as to the nasal tip, the overall shape of the nose is smoothed and refined. Ideal patients for Liquid Rhinoplasty may not be ready for invasive surgery, or their aesthetic concerns can be addressed with a more simple dermal filler option.

Liquid Rhinoplasty treatment typically takes about 15 to 30 minutes and may require 1 to 2 sessions to achieve the overall goal. Results can be expected to last from 1 to 2 years, and will require repeat treatment for maintenance. Traditional Rhinoplasty is an outpatient surgical procedure that takes about two to four hours, depending on the extent of surgery for each patient. While early recovery takes several weeks, the results are permanent and offer a long-lasting solution to reshaping your nose, improving underlying issues in breathing, and restoring balance and harmony of the face.

Rhinoplasty Procedure


Dr. Khelemsky performs Rhinoplasties in a fully accredited medical facility where patients will undergo general anesthesia along with their surgery. As a result, it will be necessary for a friend or family member to take you home and assist you with early recovery. Dr. Khelemsky most commonly performs an “open” rhinoplasty by making a small incision along the skin between the nostrils, known as the columella, as well as incisions hidden inside the nose. This provides access to the nasal cartilages and bones that are reshaped during surgery. The advantage of open-approach rhinoplasty is a high level of predictability and the ability to visualize the entire nasal framework for optimal and highly precise surgical maneuvers. Stitches are then placed along the incisions as well as a soft dressing with antimicrobial ointment inside the nose to help with healing. In very rare cases, nasal packing may be used, but this is unlikely.

Rhinoplasty Recovery

Be “restaurant-ready” in one to two weeks. Upon completion of your surgery, Brooklyn rhinoplasty surgeon, Dr. Khelemsky, will place a nasal cast over the nose to help retain its new shape and properly heal. A soft nasal dressing is placed inside the nose with antimicrobial ointment. Rarely, internal nasal splints or nasal packing may be used. The cast is removed one week following your surgery. You will receive specific post-operative instructions that are important to follow, such as sleeping with the head elevated to reduce swelling. However, drainage and bleeding from the nose are expected for the first few days and can be managed with a gauze pad placed beneath the nose. Even after the nasal cast and dressings are removed, patients are advised to avoid certain activities for several weeks to ensure optimal healing:

  • Swimming
  • Blowing your nose
  • Placing glasses on your nose
  • Pulling clothes over your head
  • Physical trauma, such as through contact sports, to the nose
  • Sleeping on your face

Many rhinoplasty patients can return to their daily activities in about one week. While each case is unique, the majority of patients can expect to feel improved breathing 1 month after surgery. Following your post-operative care instructions and all follow-up visits with Dr. Khelemsky will help you attain the best results from Rhinoplasty.

Rhinoplasty Results

Achieve transformational effects inside and out. Your results are seen immediately once your nasal cast and bandages are removed. However, visible swelling along the nose and especially the nasal tip is present for one to two weeks and greatly improves over the next four to six weeks. It often takes a full year for the result to become fully apparent. Many patients ask when they will be ready to return to social activities and feel “restaurant-ready.” The answer is approximately two weeks, when swelling and bruising are minimized enough so as not to be noticed by others. In about two to three months, the new shape and size of your nose are more apparent, and within six months, most of the swelling has resolved. The tip of the nose takes the longest to heal because it has the thickest skin and retains the most swelling due to the effects of gravity. While results from Rhinoplasty are permanent, your nose will endure very subtle changes as you continue to age.

Frequently Asked Questions

During your procedure, you will be asleep while under general anesthesia used during surgery. Additionally, local anesthesia is also used and allows you to have a smooth transition to your recovery after you are awake. As you recover, you will feel congested and are only able to breathe through your mouth, which can cause dry mouth and fatigue. However, once the nasal cast and dressings are removed, patients begin to breathe more freely and recover more comfortably. Intermittent congestion is to be expected and is comfortably managed with salt water nasal sprays. You may receive prescribed medications, but most postoperative discomfort can be alleviated with over-the-counter products.

Rhinoplasty is a very safe and effective surgical procedure; however, some risks may include infection, prolonged bleeding or swelling, scarring, or an unsatisfactory cosmetic result. Dr. Khelemsky will discuss all the possible risks of nasal surgery with you during your personalized consultation.

Most patients after the age of 16 years do well recovering from cosmetic nasal surgery. However, patients under the age of 16 are advised to wait until their nose and facial features are finished growing before seeking cosmetic surgery. In certain cases, surgery may be a suitable option to correct functional concerns or traumatic injuries. In each situation, Dr. Khelemsky will carefully consider a patient’s age before moving forward with the procedure.

During your consultation, Dr. Khelemsky will create a customized treatment plan to meet your aesthetic and functional needs. Based on your surgical plan, Dr. Khelemsky and her team will discuss the costs for your procedure and answer any questions you may have. While every Rhinoplasty is unique, Dr. Khelemsky takes a strong personal philosophy that no nasal surgery should separate the cosmetic and functional aspects of the nose. For patients with underlying breathing issues, Dr. Khelemsky will simultaneously address any anatomy that may be impairing your breathing in addition to your cosmetic goals. Thus, we assure every patient that nasal function will not be compromised during cosmetic surgery, and on the contrary, most patients will experience noticeably improved breathing along with their newly refined nasal shape and appearance.

Our practice does not participate with any insurance plans or programs including Medicaid or Medicare. However, financing and payment options may be available through CareCredit.
