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

What is rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty, commonly referred to as a nose job, is a type of cosmetic surgery designed to help improve the function and/or appearance of the nose. Because the nose is the center of the face, many argue that it is the focal point, and any issue with the nose can affect the overall appearance of your face. One of the main purposes of rhinoplasty is to help people obtain the ideal nose shape to create harmony of all their facial features. Common reasons why people choose to undergo rhinoplasty is to correct a disfigurement, improve breathing difficulties or simply because they themselves have an issue with the size or shape of their nose and wish to have it altered to suit their personal tastes.

How is rhinoplasty performed?

A certain degree of anesthesia is required in order to perform rhinoplasty. Although some cases of rhinoplasty only require local anesthesia and mild sedation, most cases require general anesthesia or twilight sedation. The type of sedation that you need depends on the degree of nasal corrections you’re getting, whether they are minor or major.

Dr. Kim use one of two approaches to perform rhinoplasty: the open approach or the endonasal, also known as the “closed” approach. The type of approach used depends on each patient’s individual case. In the open approach, the entire skin tissue is pulled up off the nose to allow for maximum exposure. This is the approach that most surgeons tend to prefer. The closed approach, on the other hand, doesn’t require any incisions to be made outside of the nose. This approach is most frequently used for people who have severely crooked noses or are getting rhinoplasty for revision purposes.

The nose undergoes changes as you age, just as the rest of your face does. Preserving the structure of your nose during surgery is essential to getting the most favorable outcome in the long run.

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.
