Since then multiple people have been credited with the meaning that saying has today. But generally speaking the phrase is used to say that a picture can often convey a message better than words can. When it comes to the before an after pictures of just a few of our rhinoplasty surgeries, Napoleon and those after him could not be more right.

People don’t read a description of a garment and then decide to buy it they look at the images provided.

Revision Rhinoplasty
Although it is not ideal, revision rhinoplasty is sometime required following an initial rhinoplasty procedure. About 5-12% patients who have undergone a nose job surgery require a revision rhinoplasty procedure, from minor to major changes. As one can imagine, this second, or third, or fourth surgery can be more challenging and cult than the first one – and it is important that patients carefully choose a surgeon with a extensive experience and meticulous attention to detail. More About Revision Rhinoplasty

Nasal Tip Rhinoplasty

One of the most commonly cited reasons for nose surgery in New York is an over-projected nasal tip. The patient may feel that the tip of the nose protrudes too far, creating an unappealing profile. The reason for the over-projection may be structural: the nasal bridge, called the dorsum, could be overdeveloped. More About Nasal Tip Rhinoplasty

Micro Rhinoplasty - Nose Job Without Surgery

Reducing the nasal hump traditionally required a technique known as osteotomy in which the nasal bones are manually fractured and then repositioned. This typically required general anesthesia and added to the recovery time as well as the potential complications. Today, an exciting new less invasive technique known as MicroRhinoplasty is being used which allows the nasal hump to be reduced without needing to break the nose. More About Micro Rhinoplasty

Reduction Rhinoplasty

One of the most common complaints made by nose job candidates in NYC is that they want a smaller nose. Whether they are unhappy with the width, profile or nostril size, many people struggle with a nose that is disproportionately large for their face. Nose reduction, also called reduction rhinoplasty, is one of the most common surgeries performed by Dr. Miller. More About Reduction Rhinoplasty

Nasal Fractures

Nasal fractures, or broken noses, result from facial injuries in contact sports or falls. When a physical fight or car accident results in a broken nose, there is more than just appearance to consider. While many NYC patients may often have to contend with a significant alteration to his or her appearance, they may also experience culty breathing.

Difficulty breathing through nose videoSeptoplasty

Do you have trouble breathing through your nose? You could have a deviated septum. The septum is the structure that separates the two nasal cavities. When it is deviated, or crooked, part of it obstructs a nasal passage, blocking the air flow through the nostril. Individuals with deviated septums may snore or suffer from sleep apnea.

A deviated septum can be fixed with a procedure called a septoplasty. During this surgery, the septum is straightened to remove the obstruction from the nasal passage. More About Septoplasty

Difficulty Breathing

By some estimates, 80% of all people have an off-center septum, the bone and cartilage that divide the nasal cavity in two. Most people do not experience any symptoms from this misalignment. However, a severely deviated septum can cause breathing complications, nasal passage(s) obstruction, nosebleeds, recurrent sinus infections and sleep apnea. When a deviated septum causes these kinds of problems, Septoplasty surgery is necessary. More About Difficulty Breathing

Ethnic Rhinoplasty

If you are in the New York or Tri-State area and are considering rhinoplasty, you have probably heard the term ethnic rhinoplasty thrown around.

More About Ethnic Rhinoplasty

Unique Considerations of Asian Rhinoplasty

Asian rhinoplasty is different from Caucasian rhinoplasty in a number of respects. While rhinoplasty is not uncommon among Asians, the desired changes differ from the requests commonly made by Caucasian patients, or patients of other ethnicities for that matter. The differences in nasal anatomy of Asian rhinoplasty versus other rhinoplasty patients dictate what changes the patients would like to make to the nose. More About Asian Rhinoplasty

African American Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty is no longer an uncommon procedure among African Americans. New York rhinoplasty surgeon Dr. Philip J. Miller specializes in African American rhinoplasty. At one time, the procedure was not so common and less emphasis was placed on maintaining the ethnic features of African American patients. More About African American Rhinoplasty

Hispanic Rhinoplasty

Primarily, this is because rhinoplasty has not been as popular among Hispanic patients, but that is changing as the Hispanic population grows. According to an article published at, Hispanic rhinoplasty in New York and elsewhere is expected to rise as the Hispanic population in the United States grows.

Male Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty is becoming more popular amongst men

Dr. Miller Male Rhinoplasty in New YorkMore and more men are undergoing cosmetic surgery, including rhinoplasty. Male rhinoplasty is on the rise in New York and other cities, where men are showing more concern for their appearances and overall well-being.

A press release issued in 2011 by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons noted that male cosmetic surgery, including rhinoplasty in New York and elsewhere, has become more popular than in previous years.

Male rhinoplasty in New York is commonly performed in order to reshape a patient’s nose due to trauma or abnormalities, or simply because the patient does not like his nose. A person’s nose may be misshapen because of illness, injury, or the individual could have been born with nasal abnormalities. When the shape of the nose is crooked or altered, it may also affect the function of the nose. Male rhinoplasty can address issues of form and function of the nose. More About Male Rhinoplasty

Teenage Rhinoplasty

Teenage Rhinoplasty

New York Facial Plastic Surgeon

Rhinoplasty is the most-often requested procedure by teenage patients in NYC. This is not surprising given today’s societal pressure to fit in combined the popularity of social media websites and the “selfie” culture that comes with it.

While some professionals assert that teens are not mature enough to understand or deal with the implications of plastic surgery, Dr. Philip Miller believes that parental involvement and careful patient selection can ensure the process is beneficial and highly successful for the right teenage patient.

First and foremost, if you are a teen in New York City and considering rhinoplasty, your nose must have reached full development. This typically happens between the ages of 14 and 15 for girls and 16 or 18 for boys. The average age of Dr. Miller’s teen rhinoplasty patients is 15 to 19. During the consultation, Dr. Miller will assess your nasal bones, cartilage and septum to determine if your nose has reached this stage.

The other major consideration is whether you, as a teenager, are psychologically ready for the procedure. Teen patients that can clearly identify their rationale for the procedure and enunciate an understanding of all benefits and risks, make the best candidates.

Whether it is to correct appearance or breathing abnormalities, with proper assessment and support, teens can be excellent rhinoplasty patients. More About Teenage Rhinoplasty
