Dustin Hoffman’s 1967 movie The Graduate resulted in not only the start of a long and storied career of a Hollywood icon, but also the coining of a number of quotes that are used frequently to this day. None is more quoted than the career advice a young Hoffman receives from a family friend that “There’s a great future in plastics.”
But plastic surgery has nothing to do with plastic. The term, like many things in medicine, comes to us from the ancient Greeks and their word plastikos, meaning to form. Regrettably this doesn’t stop some patients and doctors from opting for a procedure, or procedures, that leaves an entirely artificial or plastic result.
Dr. Shervin Naderi is among a handful of plastic surgeons in the United States who focus specifically on nasal surgery (rhinoplasty). Rhinoplasty, along with revision rhinoplasty, makes up over 90 percent of his practice.
Revision rhinoplasty is also referred to as secondary rhinoplasty. It is a corrective procedure to restore aesthetic or functional issues and complications resulting from a previous surgery to the nose. About five to 10 percent of the time a revision may only be required to promote healing due to minor issues that may occur. But the rest of the time, the reason for a revision is either due to surgeon error, poor doctor/patient dialogue leading to differing expectations, or patients with unrealistic expectations.
Most reputable cosmetic surgeons believe that a conservative approach is always best. Less is more in plastic surgery. The ideal result is always an individualized natural look that works to harmonize with all the patient’s features.
