Indian and Pakistani Rhinoplasty in New York

There is no one-size-fits-all approach to rhinoplasty. Among the many factors to consider is the patient’s ethnicity, as each group has unique nasal features, as well as challenges that require a different surgical technique. Indian rhinoplasty, for instance, will require ethnic nose reshaping designed to consider Indian and Pakistani noses and facial characteristics to offer the best results possible.

Typical patients of Indian descent may share some of these common nasal characteristics:

  • Rounded nasal tip
  • Wider nasal structure
  • Thicker skin on the nose
  • Nasal bridge that slopes downward
  • Hump or bump on the nasal bridge

Philip J. Miller, MD, FACS, uses his own specialized techniques for Indian rhinoplasty to achieve the results patients desire by creating a nose that matches the patient’s unique facial characteristics.

Indian and Pakistani Rhinoplasty FAQ

How much does Indian rhinoplasty cost in NYC? 

An Indian nose job can cost anywhere from $9,000 to $25,000 in New York City. This is the average price for the area, but the true cost varies from patient to patient, depending on factors, such as the patient’s aesthetic goals, the length and involvement of the surgery, anesthesia and facility fees, the surgeon’s experience, etc. The actual cost will be provided during your consultation. For more information on the cost of rhinoplasty, please contact Dr. Miller at his Manhattan, New York plastic surgery office.

How will the procedure go? 

Any type of rhinoplasty procedure is highly complex and requires meticulous attention to detail. It typically takes 3-4 hours for Dr. Miller to complete a rhinoplasty procedure.

There are two surgical approaches to rhinoplasty: An open or closed technique. The surgical technique used will depend on the type of changes that need to be made. If performing an open rhinoplasty, Dr. Miller will make a small incision in the columella –the piece of tissue that separates the nostrils. Also called external rhinoplasty, this technique opens the tip of the nose to reveal its internal structures. An open rhinoplasty provides enhanced visibility when maneuvering through the bone, cartilage, and tissue that make up the nose. When performing this highly common type of rhinoplasty, Dr. Miller can reshape the nose and repair damage without jeopardizing its structural support. 

A closed rhinoplasty or endonasal rhinoplasty, on the other hand, is an internal procedure in which all incisions are confined to the inside of the nostrils. Patients concerned about visible scarring need not worry about a closed rhinoplasty. During the procedure, Dr. Miller carefully lifts the underlying bone, cartilage, and tissue through the nostrils, so you won’t be able to see any scarring.

Dr. Miller will choose an open or closed method depending on the patient’s goals, as well as the size and structure of the patient’s nasal passages. 

What does recovery look like?

Desi nose job patients usually return to work and normal activities within three weeks, but you should refrain from strenuous physical activity for 3-6 weeks. You will begin to see the swelling and bruising disappear within 2-3 weeks, at which time you will start to appreciate the results. Full results usually take 6-12 weeks to be seen while your healing will continue for the entire first year. Dr. Miller and his team will follow you through this entire process, but please be patient to see the final results.


Does it hurt?

You can expect to experience very minor pain in the nose and forehead region in the hours immediately following plastic surgery for an Indian nose job. Severe pain is extremely uncommon, and pain medication is provided and may be taken to alleviate these symptoms, although few find it necessary.

It is important to discuss all your concerns with your surgeon before your surgery. Dr. Miller will be able to set your expectations for your recovery and recommend specific after-care solutions to make your healing process as smooth as possible.  


Will insurance cover my Indian nose job?

If the reason for your Indian or Pakistan nose job is purely cosmetic, it is not covered. But if it is also performed to correct breathing or other functional issues, a portion may be covered by your insurance policy.
