Board-certified surgeon Dr. Sang W. Kim of the Natural Face™ Clinics feature rhinoplasty for patients residing in Cheektowaga, NY.
What is Rhinoplasty?
Generally referred to as a nose job, rhinoplasty is a corrective surgical procedure for improving the function of the nose. Additionally, the procedure addresses and treats aesthetic concerns. Considering your nose is a facial feature serving to compose your ideal of a perfect profile, visible deviations affect your appearance. Therefore, the refining goal of rhinoplasty is to shape and produce a nose in harmony with the rest of your facial features. Whether you suffer from a nose disfigurement or wish to improve its appearance, cosmetic rhinoplasty corrects your individual concerns. The same applies for those suffering from discomfort due to breathing difficulties since rhinoplasty provides functional corrections of the nose as well.
How Is Rhinoplasty Performed?
For minor nasal corrections, the rhinoplasty procedure is performed under local anesthesia and mild sedation. Yet, many cases require general anesthesia or twilight sedation.
As for the procedure, Dr. Kim perform the rhinoplasty procedure under an open or endonasal “closed” approach. Choosing the right approach will be determined by the patient’s individual case.
Recently, a trend among surgeons favors the open approach to rhinoplasty. This approach requires the elevation of the nose’s skin tissue off the nose. It’s an approach that grants the surgeon wider exposure its interior. Dr. Kim suggest and recommend the open approach to rhinoplasty. In particular, for patients with severe nose disfigurements or in need of revisions. However, for the straightforward rhinoplasty cases, the endonasal–or “closed”–approach is performed. This approach requires no incisions outside of the nose.
Much like your entire appearance, your nose undergoes changes with age. Therefore, Dr. Kim maintain and preserve the structural integrity of the nose. For long-term care and optimization, this is critical within the procedure.
