As one of the most prominent features of the face, the nose is commonly the most criticized one as well. Whether you have too small or too large nostrils, a bump/hump on the bridge, or the tip is at an undesirable angle, you may wish to learn more regarding nose surgery. In San Diego, rhinoplasty specialists are ready to help you meet your goals.
When visiting with a qualified and experienced surgeon, you will undergo a thorough examination in order to determine if this is the most appropriate procedure for your needs. The surgery itself can be performed in one of two techniques – open or closed rhinoplasty. Based on the complexity of your procedure, your surgeon will determine which of these is most beneficial.
The open technique involves incision at the bottom of the columella, as well as inside the nose. This provides the greatest visibility throughout the procedure and can be of great benefit to more complex procedures. However, if minimal alterations are being performed, the closed technique may be a better choice. This method entails incisions on the internal structure of the nose. In either technique, scarring is minimal and easily concealed.
If you would like to undergo an overall facial rejuvenation, be sure to ask your rhinoplasty surgeon about other procedures. Some of the most commonly combined procedures include facelift surgery, eyelid surgery, and chin implant surgery.
Be sure to view before and after photos of patient results in order to gain an idea of potential outcomes.
