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? 

The price of an Indian nose job in New York City can vary widely, ranging from $9,000 to $25,000 or more. Your cost will be affected by factors like the extent of correction you need and the experience and expertise of the surgeon you choose. Keep in mind the more experienced surgeons may charge more but you are also more likely to enjoy an optimal outcome after your procedure. Your actual cost will be provided during your consultation with Dr. Miller.

How will the procedure go? 

Dr. Miller typically takes 3-4 hours to perform an Indian rhinoplasty, although time will vary based on the complexity of the procedure. He may use an open or closed technique, depending on the specific details of the procedure.

During an open rhinoplasty, Dr. Miller will make a small incision in the tissue that separates the nostrils, known as the columella. This incision allows for more access and visibility of the underlying nasal anatomy, allowing Dr. Miller to make more significant alterations to the appearance of the nose. This approach does leave a small scar underneath the base of the nose that is typically almost invisible once it heals.

A closed rhinoplasty, also known as endonasal rhinoplasty, on the other hand, keeps all incisions inside the nose. During the procedure, Dr. Miller uses limited access to make changes to the nasal tip or bridge. This technique does not leave any visible scarring, but changes made using this technique tend to be more subtle.

Dr. Miller will choose the best technique for you based on your specific needs and goals.  

What does recovery look like?

Desi nose job patients can typically return to their regular activities within 2-3 weeks, but Dr. Miller recommends avoiding strenuous physical exercise for 3-6 weeks. You will begin to see the swelling and bruising disappear during the initial three weeks so you can start to see your initial results. Full results usually take 6-12 weeks although some swelling can linger for up to one full 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?

Patients concerned about pain during and after surgery are often pleasantly surprised at how comfortable the recovery process can be. Patients may experience some discomfort in the hours immediately following plastic surgery for an Indian nose job. Dr. Miller will prescribe pain medication to alleviate these symptoms, although few find it necessary.

Concerns before surgery are completely natural and It is important to discuss all your concerns with your surgeon before your surgery. Dr. Miller will discuss your concerns and provide you with full post-operative instructions to ensure your healing process is as smooth as possible.  

Will insurance cover my Indian nose job?

Insurance does not cover elective procedures done for purely cosmetic reasons. If you are undergoing an Indian or Pakistani nose job to correct breathing or other functional issues, you may be eligible for at least partial coverage of your procedure.
