Rhinoplasty in Ithaca, NY

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

What is Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty, or what is more commonly known as nose surgery or a nose job, is designed to improve the appearance and/or function of the nose. Any small deviation from your ideal profile affects the overall look of your face since your nose is the focal point of your face. The goal of rhinoplasty is the refined appearance of your nose, which balances the overall look of your face. The reasons why this procedure is performed include:

  • Improve breathing difficulties.
  • Improve one’s appearance cosmetically.
  • Correct a disfigurement.

How is Rhinoplasty performed?

Most cases are performed under twilight sedation or general anesthesia while rhinoplasty may also be performed under local anesthesia and mild sedation.

Closed or Open Rhinoplasty Approach

Depending on the case, Dr. Kim may perform the rhinoplasty procedures using the endonasal (“closed” approach) or the open approach. Open approach rhinoplasty occurs when the entire skin tissue is taken off of the nose for wide exposure. This has recently been a trend among some surgeons. Open approach rhinoplasty is performed for patients who have a severely crooked nose or who are undergoing revision rhinoplasty. The endonasal approach rhinoplasty is performed without any incision outside the nose for those who undergo straightforward rhinoplasty.

Like the rest of your face, your nose undergoes changes with age. Preservation of structural integrity during the surgery is critical to the optimal long-term outcome.
