There are good reasons and not so good reasons to want a new nose. Given that rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure with significant downtime and long lasting effects, patients need to be very clear and totally prepared for what can be a life-changing experience. Part of that, is understanding the anatomy of the nose and what the possibilities are to re-style it according to your wishes. As it happens, Dr. Naderi has a great series of four diagrams on his website that show the alterations that can be made, and the function of the components that make up your nose. These include: – nostrils – bridge – septum – tip – nasal bone All of these can be changed in some way during a rhinoplasty procedure, depending on the wishes of the patient, and with the agreement of the surgeon.
Avoiding Revision Rhinoplasty: Choosing Your New Nose
While Dr. Naderi is extremely skilled in the revision rhinoplasty, it is something best avoided by making the correct decisions at the initial consultation. A revision is a secondary surgical procedure that usually implies some form of correction of the primary surgery. In some cases it may be functional surgery, used to correct some function of the nose that has become impaired by a primary rhinoplasty, either through failure or design. This is hard to avoid – all surgery carries some element of risk for the long term – but what is easier to avoid is an ill-advised re-shaping of the nose with respect to the facial features and ethnicity of the patient. This is an issue that has recently been highlighted by the NY Daily News website, where it reported that researchers question the effect on the self-esteem of Venezuelan women who choose rhinoplasties to make themselves look ‘more white’. Although an extreme example, there have also been celebrities who have been lampooned in the press for their nose jobs, and even the occasional brave soul who has admitted that their nose job was a mistake. By contrast, Lisa Kudrow (star of the hit sitcom Friends) called her nose job at age 16 life-changing and or the better. And that’s the kind of new nose you want; one that makes you ecstatically happy!
Use Technology to Help Plan Your Rhinoplasty
Choosing a reputable surgeon like Dr. Naderi has two benefits. You will get a skilled surgeon with a gift for the aesthetic nature of cosmetic surgery, as well as access to the best tools and technologies to help envisage the changes Advanced digital imaging used at the initial consultation helps the patient see exactly how they could look after the nose job has been performed. It gives the surgeon the chance to explain why they won’t do certain things, and ask the patient why they feel they need additional work. Although it helps if you can look in a mirror and point to what you don’t like – and that’s often the starting point! – Dr. Naderi can also see your nose from an outsider’s point of view, and one that comes with anatomical knowledge of where changes can be made. This means that he can suggest changes that might not seem feasible, and which take into account the symmetry of the whole face. After all – as patients we can get hooked on the one thing we’re interested in, and forget about our own ethnicity and overall facial structure and how these things impact our appearance. The aim of a cosmetic surgeon should be to make the result as natural as possible. To see what that means in practice, Dr. Naderi has posted hundreds of rhinoplasty before and after photos so that future clients can get a feel for his world leading approach.
