Can Our Favorite Gadgets Be Making Us Look Older?
The goal of aesthetic nasal surgery, nose job, or Rhinoplasty is to achieve a result that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing. The nose should be sculpted to harmonize with remaining facial features and restore balance to the face, often accentuating a patient’s other attractive facial features. Newer surgical techniques allow the elimination of nasal packing and reduction of postoperative swelling and discoloration. As a result of these new techniques, the postoperative recovery period has been reduced.
It is often possible to utilize the patient’s own tissue when areas of deficiency are noted preoperatively or in cases where revisional surgery is indicated to create a more natural look. The ideal Rhinoplasty result should be natural in outcome, avoiding a cosmetic or operated upon appearance. Plastic surgeons who have the dual surgical training in both Plastic Surgery and Otolaryngology — Head & Neck Surgery bring a unique perspective and experience to this operation with special insight into the functional and aesthetic challenges of this operation.
