How Does Rhinoplasty Work?
Rhinoplasty fixes the size, shape, and prominence of the nose to best suit the patient. It’s designed to repair injuries or a deviated septum and reshape the bridge, nostrils, and tip for a proportionate, elegant result.
Double-board certified physician Dr. Adam Stein has refined his skills over 2 decades for meticulous attention to detail that results in thousands of patients who are satisfied with their new nose.
What Types of Rhinoplasty are Available?
The most straightforward rhinoplasty is the closed rhinplasty. Ideal for patients with uncomplicated nasal anatomy who require minimal correction, the closed rhinoplasty requires a great deal of skill because the incisions are inside the nostrils. Dr. Stein has performed thousands of closed rhinoplasties. The procedure requires 1.5-3 hours to reshape the nostrils, tip, and bridge of your nose.
More common is the open rhinoplasty. Patients seeking more dramatic results or have more complex nasal anatomy are ideal. Incisions are well camouflaged within the natural creases of your skin, and Dr. Stein is better able to shape and refine your nose aesthetics in just 1-2 hours.
Revision rhinoplasty may be open or closed, depending on the correction you require. If a previous rhinoplasty has not lived up to expectations, a revision may be needed. These are the most challenging rhinoplasties, and should be done by someone of Dr. Stein’s caliber to ensure a proper outcome.
