Rhinoplasty in Clarence, NY

Board-certified surgeon Dr. Sang W. Kim of the Natural Face™ Clinics offer rhinoplasty for patients residing in Clarence, NY.

What Is Rhinoplasty?

The word rhinoplasty comes from the Greek roots of nose and to shape, and that is exactly what occurs during a nose job or nose surgery. The procedure was developed to improve the appearance of the nose and/or its function. Your nose plays a key role in the balance of your features, and since it’s positioned in the middle of your face, any minor deviation from your ideal profile affects the overall facial appearance. Rhinoplasty is performed to refine the appearance of the nose and to bring unique harmony to the rest of your face. The procedure can improve one’s physical appearance (cosmetic rhinoplasty), improve breathing difficulties (functional rhinoplasty) or correct a disfigurement.

How Is Rhinoplasty Performed?

If only minor corrections are needed, rhinoplasty is performed under local anesthesia and mild sedation, but in most cases, twilight sedation or general anesthesia is the rule of thumb.

Dr. Kim perform rhinoplasty procedures using both the open approach and the endonasal “closed” approach depending on the patient’s specific needs. The favored trend among plastic surgeons is the open approach rhinoplasty in which the entire skin tissue is elevated off of the nose for wide exposure. Dr. Kim believe, however, that such substantial manipulation is not required for every patient. For those with a severely crooked nose or undergoing revision rhinoplasty, open approach rhinoplasty is preferred. Otherwise, for straightforward primary rhinoplasties where there are no incisions made outside the nose, an endonasal “closed” approach is best.

Your nose, like the rest of your features, will undergo changes with age. Preservation of the nose’s structural integrity during surgery is essential for optimal long-term success.
