Patients residing in Auburn, NY, need only turn to board-certified surgeon Dr. Sang W. Kim of the Natural Face™ Clinics when they are in need of rhinoplasty.
What is rhinoplasty?
Most people know rhinoplasty as a nose job. This type of cosmetic surgery is performed to either help improve the function of the nose or the appearance of it. People who have breathing problems might choose to undergo this surgery (functional rhinoplasty), and people who simply aren’t happy with the appearance of their noses might also choose to undergo it (cosmetic rhinoplasty).
How is rhinoplasty performed?
All rhinoplasty requires a certain amount of anesthesia, but the amount required depends on how extreme the corrections are going to be. For instance, people who are only getting minor changes done might be fine with mild sedation with local anesthesia whereas people having major changes might require twilight sedation with general anesthesia.
There are two different types of approaches to rhinoplasty: the open approach and the closed (endonasal). The open approach consists of completely lifting up the tissues from the nose so that the surgeon has maximum access to the bone structure beneath the skin of the nose. The closed approach, on the other hand, requires no incisions to be made on the outside of the nose.
Just as the rest of your face ages over time, so does your nose. When undergoing rhinoplasty, it’s important to ensure that the structural integrity of your nose is preserved if you want to receive optimum results.
