Rhinoplasty in Buffalo, NY

The Natural Face™ Clinics in Buffalo, NY, led by Dr. Sang W. Kim, a double board-certified facial plastic surgeon, specialize in rhinoplasty.

What Is Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty is the medical term for what is better known as a nose job or nose surgery. The nose is surgically altered to improve its appearance and/or functionality. When a person’s nose deviates from an ideal symmetry and design, this can have a radical effect on the overall appearance of one’s face as the nose is the focal point. Rhinoplasty can benefit individuals by refining the appearance of their nose, providing a better balance and symmetry to their face. Some of the reasons why people choose rhinoplasty include:

  • To correct a disfigurement or injury.
  • To enhance a person’s look and overall attractiveness.
  • To correct issues relating to breathing difficulties.

How Is Rhinoplasty Performed?

In some cases, nose surgeries can be performed with mild sedation and local anesthesia. In other cases, general (full) anesthesia and “twilight” sedation will be required to perform rhinoplasty.

Closed or Open Rhinoplasty Approach

Depending on the patient’s needs and condition, Dr. Kim will perform the nose surgery procedure by either what’s called an endonasal (closed) or an open approach. The open approach procedure is used when it is necessary to remove the outer layer of skin on the nose to make the necessary corrections. Many surgeons decide to use this technique, especially for patients who have a strongly disfigured or misaligned nose, or for individuals receiving a revision rhinoplasty procedure. The endo (closed) approach technique differs in that no incisions are made outside the nose, and all of the work that is done is performed via the inside.

Dr. Kim of the Natural Face™ Clinics specialize in cosmetic and aesthetic improvements to the face, head, and neck for residents of the greater Buffalo, NY, area. To find out more about how rhinoplasty can benefit you, do not hesitate to schedule your consultation today.

I was working in Central New York and had an upcoming event and needed to get 2 areas of Dystport done. They were able to accommodate my schedule( as it was short notice) Dr. Kim’s entire staff was so friendly and welcoming!! During the procedure , even Nurse Dan held my hand and kept me smiling the whole time!! I was incredibly impressed with Dr Kim as he made sure he took the time to explain the process as well as not “ being rushed” something I have experienced with previous Doctors. I live in Florida but will be seeing Dr Kim from now on, and will be recommending their office to my fellow New Yorkers! It’s been almost 2 weeks since my appointment and the results are amazing!!! So happy! Thank you so much Dr Kim, Mary and the rest of the staff !

Dr. Kim is a world-class facial plastic surgeon. I’ve been to the top surgeons in the country from Beverly Hills to Miami and I found Dr. Kim to be superior. His face and neck lift were flawless and so natural that no one could tell I had anything done, but everyone said I looked ten years younger. As Syracuse is a discreet location, I would highly recommend anyone who wants a top notch face and neck lift to fly in. His bedside manner is as fantastic as his work. I can’t recommend Dr. Kim enough. I think he is the best Facial plastic surgeon in the country.

I am very happy with Dr. Kim and all of his staff. Not only did I have a surgical procedure done but I also go there every week for allergy shots and they couldn't be nicer. And Dr. Kim is awesome - - great bedside manner! I highly recommend them!!!

57 years old and wanted to start my new path in life retired...not looking tired! I did extensive research and sought out 5 surgeon recommendations. I was extremely impressed with Dr. Sang Kim for several reasons: 1 - He specialized in and only performs /neck surgeries, 2 - Dr. Kim is younger and probably more newly established, but there was no doubt that he is a perfectionist and a professional in his field, 3 - He is patient and really listens. I felt confident and trusted that he was giving me his best recommendation for my concerns, 4 - He didn't try to push unnecessary or extra procedures, 5 - I was impressed by how obvious it was that Dr. Kim's administrative and medical staff liked him and respected his work. But most of all, I am extremely satisfied with the results of my face lift!

I can't say enough good things about Dr. Kim. He is the most patient, professional, and personable physician I have ever had the pleasure of seeing. Instead of being rushed through the practice, every member of his staff made me feel welcome and important from the moment I walked through the door. He wouldn't perform a single procedure on me until he fully answered every minute question I had (all of which he eloquently and candidly answered); you can tell that his formal training was exceptional. His bedside manner and skilled technique easily make him one of the best kept secrets in Syracuse. I have referred numerous friends to him who have also, in turn, referred their friends. Make the consult and see for yourself... you won't be disappointed!

Dr. Kim and his staff were incredible. I had a face lift done this past summer and I was treated with dignity and respect by everyone. Dr. Kim is an exceptional surgeon and one of the nicest and kindest doctors I have ever met. I had a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend Dr. Kim and his entire staff. I recently went back to Dr. Kim for injections. Again my experience was wonderful. He explains everything he is going to do and what to expect. I didn't bruise and I love the fact that he doesn't overdo. He and his staff are just incredible. If I could give more than 5 stars I would.
