What is Rhinoplasty?
Many people feel uncomfortable with a nose they feel is the wrong shape, size, or profile for their face. Others want correction for conditions such as a deviated septum that makes breathing difficult. In fact, some consultations discover that a patient seeking cosmetic rhinoplasty has a deviated septum as well.
Unlike some other plastic surgeries that have alternative options, a rhinoplasty remains the only procedure to reshape the nose. In the hands of a skilled surgeon like Dr. Stein, rhinoplasty can make dreams come true and give people a facial appearance that they love.
Stein Plastic Surgery performs four types of rhinoplasties:
For an open rhinoplasty, Dr. Stein will create small incisions in the creases of the nose. This allows him to make more dramatic changes, making this procedure ideal for those who want a significant reshaping with significant results and accept that this will require some recovery time.
Closed rhinoplasty uses incisions inside the nose to access the nasal structure. Dr. Stein will make subtle but noticeable adjustments to the shape of your nose. This procedure produces less dramatic results than an open rhinoplasty but with a much shorter recovery time.
Often complex and challenging, revision rhinoplasties should only be performed by experienced surgeons like Dr. Stein. This procedure fixes undesired results from past surgeries. The details of the procedure depend on the problems that must be corrected.
Ethnic rhinoplasty does not remove the natural ethnic appearance of the nose. Instead, it shapes and sculpts to tone down the aspects that patients do not like while highlighting natural ethnic beauty.
