Rhinoplasty Beverly Hills Los Angeles – Nose Surgery
Many people want to change the shape of their nose. Some want their nose smaller, or less flat, or to have a bump removed. Others are concerned with their nose matching the rest of their facial features. Some people have breathing difficulties or snoring problems. In these situations, rhinoplasty can help.
Some of us are unhappy with our nose, either because of its size or shape or because of breathing problems. Rhinoplasty reshapes the skin as well as the bone and cartilage inside to alter the size and shape of the nose. Work on the cartilage that separates the two nasal air passages can help with breathing problems. This so-called “septoplasty” is often done as part of rhinoplasty or as the sole procedure. Sometimes this same cartilage is also used as a graft to help in the nose reshaping.
At Rodeo Drive Plastic Surgery, our approach to rhinoplasty is unusual. We have a team made up of two surgeons with complementary training and backgrounds who do all our nose surgery together. This interdisciplinary approach provides you the benefit of a broad perspective and skills during your evaluation and treatment, with equal focuses on the cosmetic and functional aspects of your rhinoplasty.
Paying attention only to aesthetics can lead to problems with breathing following surgery. Paying attention only to breath flow can compromise aesthetics. Our surgeons work to overcome these problems by using our different perspectives to focus simultaneously on both improving appearance and function. We call our approach The Rodeo Drive Breathe Easy Rhinoplasty™.
As you consider nose surgery, you might find it beneficial to view rhinoplasty before and after photos of patients who have had the procedure using this innovative technique. At other times, a chin implant is performed as part of a rhinoplasty to create an overall more balanced facial appearance.
Dr. Lloyd Krieger is a plastic surgeon who focuses on creating an attractive nose during your rhinoplasty. Dr. Marc Kerner is a facial plastic surgeon/ otalayrngologist who of course also works to create an attractive nose but also focuses on function so that your breathing is not impaired, or, if necessary, is improved during your procedure.
During your consultation at Rodeo Drive Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills – Los Angeles Ca, your plastic surgeon will examine you and discuss recommendations for the best type of procedure to yield the best results. The procedure is usually done as an outpatient, under general anesthesia or local anesthesia and sedation administered by a physician anesthesiologist to minimize discomfort during the procedure. Most patients have very little pain following the surgery as well because long-acting local anesthetic is administered as part of the procedure. Following the procedure, the nose may be packed with gauze for several days to help mold it into the new shape sculpted during surgery. Most patients return to work about a week after surgery. There may be some bruising for a week or so and some swelling for a few weeks following surgery.
