Here at Dr Steve Laverson’s Plastic Surgery San Diego clinic, there are many reasons visitors request rhinoplasty, a procedure to surgically adjust the size and/or shape of their nose
Historical terminology for rhinoplasty, a ‘nose job’ belies the complexity of the procedure and the importance of the nose to overall facial appearance. While each individual has their own personal motivation, aesthetic sense, and situation, many presentations and nasal features are common. Because selfies publish our face more frequently, because contemporary rhinoplasty is more successful, and because many celebrities that men and women compare against have had rhinoplasty, the procedure is more popular than ever.
Dr. Laverson, a specialist plastic surgeon in San Diego, California, believes by experience with hundreds of rhinoplasties, that improving the nose may dramatically improve the entire facial dynamic. Rhinoplasty may dramatically improve a face with nasal disproportion and/or unattractive angles between parts. Grace, delicacy, and femininity can be added for women and angular strength and masculinity for men. Facial harmony and proportion with other features must be maintained. Rhinoplasty is usually surgical, but in certain situations, non-surgical approaches are indicated. Dr. Laverson’s philosophy is to offer the simplest and safest treatment that will achieve your desired result.
Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty Treatments
Non-surgical rhinoplasty may resolve minor imperfections in the shape or contour of their nose. For some, small injectable corrections are requested for symmetry of the face. Off the shelf skin filler products may smooth nasal surface irregularities. Injectables may be a preferred choice for those with aesthetic issues that can be so corrected. Non-surgical rhinoplasty is versatile and can be used to treat a number of issues like:
- smoothing out or straightening your bridge
- lifting the nasal tip
- narrowing the shape of your nose
- correcting aesthetic issues caused by injury or defect
Injectable rhinoplasty also means none of the recovery time associated with surgical rhinoplasty treatments.
Revision Rhinoplasty from Dr Laverson
If you had expectations from rhinoplasty surgery performed elsewhere and are disappointed with the results, this can usually be improved, sometimes significantly. Don’t lament your original surgical result, consider improving it. Dr. Laverson most often can help you to achieve your desired results. By taking the time to discuss what your original expectations were, Dr Laverson can use his wealth of experience and expertise to ensure that your second surgery is more precise. The decision to go ahead with revisional rhinoplasty is not an easy one. Having to undergo the process again after being disappointed can be stressful and intimidating, but the hope for and promise of improvement are justified, and encouraging.
Patients who find themselves in this position are urged to wait at least a year before undergoing revision rhinoplasty. Scar tissue needs time to mature, and swelling should completely resolve. Should you proceed with revision rhinoplasty surgery, you will be in the hands of one of San Diego’s best plastic surgeons.
Nasal Reconstructive Surgery
There can be a real sense of frustration and discontent related to physical imperfections, either cosmetic or functional. As the centerpiece of your face, your nose is a major determinant of facial structure and appearance. Inferences about your personality are drawn by others based on the size and shape of your nose. It is a series of complex three-dimensional features that make breathing possible. Awareness of airflow and other details mandate protection of breathing dynamics during any procedure.
Dr Laverson is purposefully precise, artistic, and meticulous in his approach to every rhinoplasty, and his team of highly-trained professionals will ensure you are as relaxed and comfortable as possible.
