The nose is central and of paramount importance in creating a beautiful face. When it’s the right size in width and projection, there is a better blending of all the facial elements. It is the balance of all the facial elements that creates a beautiful face.

A rhinoplasty, or nose job, is a surgical procedure used to enhance the aesthetic form and to correct or restore the functions of the nose. Dr. Levine may perform a rhinoplasty to resolve nasal trauma, or to correct congenital defects, breathing problems, and previous poor rhinoplasty results. Every year, over a half a million people consult a facial plastic surgeon to improve the appearance of their noses. Nose surgery is something that can have profound effects on your life.

There is no better time to than now. If you believe a rhinoplasty can improve your appearance, breathing, or general happiness, do not hesitate to contact Dr. Levine today. He has 20+ years of experience, and his results speak for themselves.  Click below to schedule your free consultation, or call us at (845) 358-1700.

The Rhinoplasty Process


Excellent rhinoplasty results requires careful consultation and analysis. During the consultation, I will work closely with you to clarify your goals, using ‘before and after’ pictures to make sure you and I are both on the same aesthetic page. With this shared vision in mind, I will then determine the best nasal plastic surgery techniques to use, and will also identify any potential challenges. The last part of the consultation will be a discussion of my findings.


The surgery itself takes about an hour, and it is usually performed under general anesthesia at a nearby surgery center. I do not pack the nose following surgery. This allows patients to enjoy comfortable breathing and consistent sleep during the recovery phase


After surgery, you should avoid bending, lifting, straining, nose blowing, or sneezing for a week. You should see excellent preliminary results one week after the surgery, when the cast and underlying taping are removed and most of the skin bruising has faded. You may experience minimal pain following your rhinoplasty, but this can be managed with pain medication, as needed. Most patients take a week off after the surgery, but this isn’t always necessary.

Follow-Up Appointment

I will continue to assess your healing and aesthetic results at regular intervals during the first year. During these meetings, I might make minor adjustments such as injecting medical grade silicone with micro-droplet technique. These adjustments can ensure a permanent, aesthetically superior result, especially in difficult cases that include asymmetric faces or multiple traumas.

Free Revisions (if necessary)

I am the only rhinoplasty surgeon who can offer medical grade silicone to make any necessary adjustments following your rhinoplasty procedure. Medical-grade silicon allows me to make post-operative changes quickly and completely free of charge. Other surgeons can only offer further surgery for further improvements, at increased time and expense. Finally, my job is not finished until the patient is 100% satisfied.
