Benefits of Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty, otherwise known as a nose job, can provide several benefits to plastic surgery patients who visit our Buffalo, NY, practice.

Highlight Your Best Features

Rhinoplasty can help add symmetry and balance to your face. Our plastic surgeon considers your unique facial structure and how your new nose can bring balance and highlight your other beautiful features.

Popular Procedure

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, over 352,000 rhinoplasty procedures were performed in 2020, making it the most popular cosmetic surgery of the year. You are not alone if you want your nose to better complement your face.  

Improved Breathing

Rhinoplasty is often thought of as a cosmetic procedure used for aesthetic changes. However, many times it is performed with a septoplasty or nasal valve surgery for patients with a deviated septum, broken nose, or other conditions that make breathing through the nose difficult.

Stunning, Natural-Looking Results Before and After Transformation

Our surgeon strives to create a symmetrical and balanced nose that highlights what makes you unique. With this Buffalo, NY, patient, Dr. Sherris improved her appearance and breathing in one surgery.

Comparing Different Rhinoplasty Methods

Dr. Sherris uses many techniques in rhinoplasty depending on the needs of the patient. Here are the rhinoplasty techniques our plastic surgery clinic performs:

Open Method

An open rhinoplasty involves making an incision between the nostrils to access the internal structures of the nose. With an open surgery, the plastic surgeon can easily manipulate the bone and cartilage within the nose. Revisions and significant changes will benefit from an open nose job.

Closed Method

A closed nose job does not mean no incisions will be made. Instead, any incisions will be made from the inside of the nostril. This method is less invasive than open rhinoplasty, but the hidden incisions do not allow the surgical versatility that an open approach does.

Secondary "Revision" Rhinoplasty

As a specialist in revision rhinoplasty, many patients will visit Dr. Sherris in Buffalo to correct a previous nose job. Whether the procedure didn't turn out like you hoped, or you want to change the shape of your nose again, our surgeon will craft a nose you can feel confident about.

During your initial consultation, Dr. Sherris will listen to your rhinoplasty goals and decide which rhinoplasty method is best suited for you. Our surgeon can provide you with a custom quote once he's determined his strategy for your unique procedure.


Rhinoplasty is performed under general anesthesia to protect the airway during surgery. General anesthesia will require the patient to have a ride home after their rhinoplasty procedure.


Dr. Sherris will operate using an open or closed rhinoplasty method depending on the concerns that need to be addressed with your rhinoplasty. You will be in a relaxed and pain-free state during the procedure, and a splint will be placed following surgery.


Follow the aftercare directions that Dr. Sherris provides after your surgery. Aftercare may include elevating your head, caring for your splint, taking prescription medication, and taking time off work. Most patients can return to work in one week after surgery.  Patients should avoid strenuous activity for two weeks post surgery.

Cost of a Rhinoplasty

Dr. Sherris will provide a complete overall cost of your tailored rhinoplasty procedure at a consultation. The cost of rhinoplasty can vary depending on the following factors:

Type of Procedure

Your specific case will influence your overall price if you're getting an open or closed rhinoplasty or if it is a revision.  Patients with only minor aesthetic changes may have a less expensive treatment plan than patients with more complicated cosmetic procedures.

Anesthesia Cost

The cost of anesthesia can affect the overall price of your surgical procedure. Dr. Sherris will help you understand all the costs associated with rhinoplasty.

Breathing Issues

Many times rhinoplasty is performed with a deviated septum surgery to address internal breathing at the same time. This may reduce the overall cost of a surgery. 

Financing Options Are Available

Dr. Sherris accepts CareCredit® financing to help rhinoplasty patients get the care they need. With CareCredit, you can break up the cost of treatment into affordable monthly installments.
