Dr. Tanna is known for surgical excellence, his attention to detail, and for the impressive results he achieves for his patients. With any facial surgery, you want the most qualified surgeon working with you. Rather than employing a standard procedure, he customizes each surgery to create a natural look that enhances other facial features.
Many people are unhappy with their nose. Our Long Island rhinoplasty, or nose job, can create the perfect size and shape to enhance your facial appearance under the following circumstances:
While your surgical treatment plan will be customized to suit your facial structure, the procedure has a few general steps, which include:
Your newly sculpted nose will be supported by a splint and you may have packing within the nose, covered with bandages to keep the nose structure supported while healing. The facial structure is very sensitive, and it will require several weeks for swelling to subside. Bruising is a normal event after surgery. Though your newly-shaped nose will begin to become evident within a couple of weeks, the final, sculpted appearance will continue to refine as the weeks pass. Even early on, appearance and breathing will be greatly improved.
We invite you to visit our practice and meet with Dr. Tanna. It is important that you feel comfortable and you are confident that you have chosen the most qualified Plastic Surgeon for this procedure.

Rhinoplasty is not a one-size-fits-all operation. Dr. Tanna believes in taking an individualized approach for each patient while accounting for their unique anatomy and preferences. There are, however, general principles of facial and nasal aesthetics that can serve as a starting point to help patients analyze their noses and determine major areas of concern.
