Considering Rhinoplasty?

The nose is a pri­ma­ry focal point of the face, and it plays a major role in defin­ing bal­ance and proportion.

Rhino­plas­ty is a sur­gi­cal pro­ce­dure per­formed to change the appear­ance of the nose. It may be done for pure­ly cos­met­ic pur­pos­es but also to cor­rect a birth
defor­mi­ty or trau­mat­ic deformity.

Rhino­plas­ty is typ­i­cal­ly per­formed in adults and old­er teenagers. Rhino­plas­ty is most often done under gen­er­al anes­the­sia. Time off of work/​school is usu­al­ly about one or two weeks, and phys­i­cal activ­i­ty must be lim­it­ed for at least eight weeks fol­low­ing the pro­ce­dure. The visu­al results of rhino­plas­ty are grad­ual and require at least one year to reach the final outcome.

My per­son­al approach to rhino­plas­ty is to indi­vid­u­al­ize the pro­ce­dure to each patien­t’s wish­es, their eth­nic or famil­ial traits and over­all facial struc­ture. By enhanc­ing facial bal­ance and pro­por­tion through rhino­plas­ty, patients are like­ly to gain self-con­fi­dence and self-esteem.
