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.

At Natural Face™ Clinics, Dr. Kim specialize in the aesthetic enhancement of the face, head, and neck, exclusively for the residents of Ithaca, NY. Find out more by scheduling your personal rhinoplasty consultation today.

TESTIMONIALS
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.

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.
