Types of Rhinoplasty
There are a variety of rhinoplasties that may be right for you. Dr. Stein specializes in rhinoplasty, therefore, he has a wealth of experience in the various techniques used to reshape the nose. Below are a few of the types of rhinoplasties available at Stein Plastic Surgery.
Open rhinoplasty is the most common technique characterized by a small incision between the nostrils in the strip of skin called the columella. With this incision, Dr. Stein can access all the structures of your nose to make corrections to its shape, size, or position.
Closed rhinoplasty is often referred to as scarless rhinoplasty because the incisions are made inside the nostrils. Dr. Stein can still correct aspects of your bridge and nasal tip, but the closed rhinoplasty is reserved for patients who don’t require much remodeling to achieve their aesthetic goals.
Ethnic rhinoplasty preserves unique features to you and your heritage without compromising surgical skill and cosmetic improvement. These procedures may take more time to complete, but Dr. Stein’s understanding of the structural foundation of ethnic features serves his diverse patients well.
Revision rhinoplasty takes an elevated level of knowledge and skill to complete. Many patients come to Dr. Stein unhappy with a previous rhinoplasty procedure and looking to improve their appearance. Special consideration must be given to the initial remodeling to achieve your desired look. Dr. Stein is well-versed in what makes for a successful revision even under challenging situations.
