Most commonly known as “nose surgery,” rhinoplasty is one of the leading plastic surgery procedures performed in the United States. It can greatly improve the appearance of your face by reducing or increasing the size, changing the shape of the tip or bridge, narrow the span of the notrils, or even change the angle between the nose and upper lip. Many times, patients seek the expertise of Newport Beach plastic surgeon Dr. Dubrow for rhinoplasty in order to correct a birth defect or injury, or even to help relieve breathing problems. This procedure may raise your self-confidence and not only improve the size and projection of your nose, but complement other features of your face as well. Younger patients seeking nose surgery, such as teenagers around the age of 14 or 15, may not be considered ideal candidates for rhinoplasty because they are still in the midst of their growth spurt. Many surgeons will also take their social and emotional maturity into consideration as well; making sure that their decision is not a reflection of their parents’ feelings.
At the practice of Orange County rhinoplasty surgeon Dr. Dubrow, the methods used for rhinoplasty depend on a patient’s condition. If you’re considering nose surgery as the route towards facial rejuvenation, you may undergo an “open” or “closed” procedure. The surgery can take anywhere from one to two hours, and is known to offer permanent results. The initial consultation is a great time to learn of your options, look at before-and-after photos, and ask the surgeon any questions you may have. In turn, your concerns will be addressed.
Rhinoplasty is a delicate plastic surgery procedure and should be performed by a doctor with extensive training and years of experience. As a leading physician in his field who is highly regarded by peers and patients alike, our doctor looks forward to learning of your goals with nose surgery.
