Question: Can rhinoplasty or a nose job surgery remove a bump on my nose without drastically changing my appearance? I’m 28 and I don’t want people to notice.
Answer: Absolutely! As a facial plastic surgeon, finesse rhinoplasty is something I am typically asked to do. Most people want a natural result—and a cosmetic surgery that minimizes a detracting detail without revamping the entire nose.
According to a recent study, brushing after certain meals and drinks–especially acidic ones–can push the acid deeper into the enamel and cause more damage.
It is best to wait 30 minutes before brushing your teeth after an acidic meal.

Question: At what age is too young or too old to get a rhinoplasty or nose job surgery? I’m 55 but I’m also asking for my daughter who still attends high school in New York City.
Answer: It is important that any teen considering rhinoplasty surgery has already completely gone through puberty. This is because the nose doesn’t reach its full adult size until after puberty. Plastic surgery prior to that stage will likely arrest the development of the nose and result in a nose that it too short or too small to be in harmony with the rest of the face. In addition, it may result in incomplete development of sinus drainage and airflow pathways, causing functional impairment. For adults, there is not a strict age limit, but unless they have had a recent nasal trauma that has changed the position and/or shape of the nose, I urge them to be wary of rhinoplasty! Most people are subconsciously attached to their nose and it is a defining part of their self image. For this reason, I usually counsel people over 28 years of age against this plastic surgery procedure unless they had a recent trauma with a change in the shape and/or position of the nose; or if they always wanted a rhinoplasty but couldn’t afford it until now! In NYC, most of the rhinoplasties I perform are on men and women between the ages of 17 and 26; men aged 38-52 who have been injured in a sports-related injury; and women of all ages who have had a traumatic fall or taxi accident.

Some aestheticians are calling it the “Angry Bird Look”- the frown lines that grace us with age, the two 11’s right above your nose and between your eyebrows.
There are many ways to erase these wrinkles, both non-surgically with Botox and surgically with a brow lift.
Come see Dr. Yagoda in Manhattan to determine which is right for you…because who wants to look like an iPhone game?

Question: I’m 32, female, and I live in New York City. I’d like a rhinoplasty procedure but I’m somewhat of a celebrity on Broadway. Is it possible to get a nose job that looks natural but is also subtle?
Answer: As a facial plastic surgeon I take care of a number of celebrities in theater, film and radio in New York City and around the world, and I am often asked to perform subtle finesse celebrity rhinoplasty. Many times this is in combination with functional nasal plastic surgery. High-definition film and television accentuate irregularities on celebrities that are otherwise blessed physically, and that nearly imperceptible in “real life”. Accordingly, the surgical changes must be natural, and perfect on high-definition view. Recently, I performed a combined functional and cosmetic rhinoplasty on a television anchor person, and she was back “on-air” five days later. Her co-workers never suspected that she had a rhinoplasty. In fact, they guessed that she had a breast augmentation because of the new “push-up” bra she was wearing!!
