What Is MicroRhinoplasty™?

For patients in NYC wishing to remove a hump or bump on the bridge of the nose, MicroRhinoplasty™ may be the answer. MicroRhinoplasty™ is the latest advancement in nose job procedures that allows the surgeon to reduce a hump or bump on the nose in a less invasive manner than traditional techniques. The development of MicroRhinoplasty™ is especially exciting, as hump or bump removal is the most common request among rhinoplasty patients.

In a traditional nose job, an osteotomy is the usual technique employed to reduce humps or bumps on the bridge of the nose. An osteotomy requires that the surgeon manually fracture the nasal bones to re-shape the nasal structure and eliminate the hump. While quite effective, an osteotomy is a complex procedure. It is typically performed under general anesthesia and results in significant swelling and bruising and significant recovery times. Some patients also experience complications from the procedure.

With the introduction of MicroRhinoplasty™, Dr. Miller can now eliminate unsightly humps and bumps without resorting to bone fracturing or highly invasive procedures. Using an innovative air-powered microrasp and utilizing only a local anesthesia, MicroRhinoplasty procedures are done in the office and completed in as little as five minutes.

How Does MicroRhinoplasty™ Work?

To perform MicroRhinoplasty™, Dr. Miller accesses the treatment area through a tiny incision in the nostril. Then, using a specialized microrasp, he removes the obtrusive bony layers with extreme precision until the desired contour is achieved. Patients report very little pain, minimal swelling and bruising, and usually return to normal activities within a few days.

What Are The Benefits Of MicroRhinoplasty™?

For the right patient, the benefits of MicroRhinoplasty™ by Dr. Miller in NYC are many.

  • Short Treatment Time

Perhaps the number one benefit of MicroRhinoplasty™ is the short duration of the procedure. Most procedures can be completed in as little as five to fifteen minutes and only require a localized anesthesia.

  • Minimal Pain and Discomfort

The nature of MicroRhinoplasty means that the patient will experience very little pain – either during or after the procedure. Minor swelling or bruising may occur, but usually resolves in a few days or weeks.

  • Quick Resolution

Microrhinoplasty is ideal for those patients who are bothered by having a very small bump and want to remove it, but the bump is not so obtrusive to justify a complete rhinoplasty.

  • Fast Recovery

Once the procedure is complete, a patient is free to resume normal activities in one to two days, although strenuous activity should be avoided for 4-6 weeks. Unlike traditional nose job procedures that require weeks of devoted recovery time, MicroRhinoplasty™ allows a patient to return to normal life within a day or two of leaving Dr. Miller’s office.

Am I A Good Candidate For MicroRhinoplasty™?

If you struggle with an unsightly hump or bump along the bridge of your nose, you may be an excellent candidate for MicroRhinoplasty™. For the best results, you should be in general good health and have realistic expectations.

All candidates for a MicroRhinoplasty™ will first complete a consultation with Dr. Miller, where he will thoroughly examine the nose and discuss patient concerns and expectations. If he believes MicroRhinoplasty is the right option, the procedure can be scheduled.


How Do I Prepare For My MicroRhinoplasty™ Procedure?

Prior to your MicroRhinoplasty™ procedure, you will receive detailed pre-operative instructions from Dr. Miller. MicroRhinoplasty™ patients should also remember the following:

  • Review all materials

During your consultation, you will receive a packet of information regarding your MicroRhinoplasty™. If you have any questions about your procedure, you should contact Dr. Miller’s office before the day of your procedure.

  • Fill Your Prescriptions Ahead Of Time

Make sure you have any prescriptions filled before your surgery date. The hours immediately following your procedure should be devoted to rest and recovery, not standing in line at the pharmacy.

  • Arrange For Transportation Home

Even though the nature of MicroRhinoplasty™ is not as invasive as a traditional nose job, you will still receive anesthesia during the procedure. Each patient recovers differently from anesthesia, and driving or traveling alone is not allowed.

  • Keep Contact Information Handy

While you are recuperating, it is important that your friends, family or caregiver has immediate access to Dr. Miller and other emergency personnel. Make a list of all contact numbers and keep it handy in case you need assistance once you’re home.

  • Schedule Your Follow-Up Appointments

Dr. Miller wants to carefully assess your recovery progress and does this through your post-procedure appointments. This follow up is critically important to your healing process, so mark your calendar and don’t miss these appointments.
