New Jersey Rhinoplasty:
Enhancing Your Natural Beauty

Has the appearance of your nose bothered you? Our goal is to give your nose a natural, improved, and un-operated appearance through cosmetic nasal surgery. Both Dr. Eric Carniol and Dr. Paul Carniol are double board-certified facial plastic surgeons who bring tremendous experience and expertise to rhinoplasty procedures in Summit, NJ.

Trust Your Care to a Board-Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon

At Carniol Plastic Surgery, we specialize in providing exceptional rhinoplasty services in New Jersey. We understand that each patient’s nose is unique, and the necessity of nose bone-breaking during the procedure varies from person to person. A comprehensive evaluation with Dr. Carniol will determine the best approach for achieving optimal results tailored to your specific needs.

Combining Rhinoplasty with Septoplasty and Sinus Surgery for Enhanced Results

Want to look better and breathe better? For patients with significant septal deviation causing nasal airway obstruction, rhinoplasty can be combined with septoplasty. This dual procedure not only enhances the aesthetic appearance of the nose but also helps reduce symptoms related to nasal airway obstruction. Other patients may have sinus infections.

Dr. Eric Carniol also performs advanced sinus surgery techniques with less discomfort. Rhinoplasty is performed as “outpatient” surgery, meaning that you go home the same day, and there is no need for post-surgery packing. As a result, there is usually only mild swelling and discomfort experienced by our patients.

Preparing for Your Rhinoplasty

Dr. Carniol recommends certain precautions before your rhinoplasty surgery to ensure the best possible outcome. It is advised to stop taking aspirin, vitamin E, or fish oil for at least two weeks before the surgery. No alcohol for 1 week before surgery to decrease bruising after surgery. Staying well-hydrated and maintaining a balanced diet in the days leading up to surgery can also facilitate a smoother recovery period.

Recovery and Aftercare Following Rhinoplasty

Recovery after rhinoplasty varies from person to person. It is common to experience some swelling and bruising around the eyes, but the majority of our patients only experience mild swelling and bruising. To decrease bruising and swelling, Dr. Carniol recommends cool compresses for the face, sleeping elevated, a diet rich in bromelain, and rinsing the nose with saline.

If your rhinoplasty involves moving of the nasal bones, it is important to avoid wearing glasses for several weeks as they can affect the healing process and alter the appearance of your nasal bones. Most patients experience only mild discomfort following the surgery, and patients rarely take narcotic pain medication. With Dr. Carniol’s anesthesia technique, patients rarely have nausea after surgery.

NJ Liquid Rhinoplasty: A Non-Surgical Option

For patients interested in non-surgical alternatives, we also offer NJ Liquid Rhinoplasty. This innovative procedure utilizes dermal fillers to enhance the appearance of the nose. By strategically injecting fillers, we can create a more lifted tip or reduce the appearance of a bump. It is important to note that not all patients are candidates for non-surgical rhinoplasty, so discussing your goals and concerns with Dr. Carniol during your consultation is essential.
