Case 71: Tip and nostril width and overall nasal projection made the nose feel dominant for this young woman. Rhinoplasty involved making her whole nose smaller by deprojecting, refining the tip, and removing some nostril flare. At the same time, a nasal fracture and breathing concerns were addressed. Neck Liposuction also helped to define and re-balance her jawline to create the improved facial proportions that she desired.
The patient receiving the Botox injections must stop taking blood-thinning medication at least a week prior to Botox injections. Avoid Aspirin, Advil, Excedrin, Vitamin E supplements and natural sources such as Fish oil, Ginseng and Gingko Bilbao. This helps prevent any bruising after the Botox treatment. All pain medications are to be avoided except Tylenol.
When you choose a surgeon with his/her relevant specialty and academic authenticity, it becomes more difficult. Even academic education passed in the best universities does not provide guarantees of surgeon’s skill. In fact, A and B points are necessary conditions but not sufficient. In our country, little attention is paid to scientific know-how of students before selection, and this results in the graduation of surgeons with higher scientific level but lower surgery skill and art. Now, how can we access to this information?!
Unfortunately, despite a surgeon's best efforts, in some cases a patient may be unhappy with the results of his or her surgery. This can result from numerous causes, including surgical error or unrealistic expectations on the patient's part. Because the final results of rhinoplasty can take up to a year to develop, patients should not panic if their noses have not taken their ideal shape in the first few months. If a patient is unhappy with the nose even after the final shape has stabilized, there are options for treatment and correction. Depending on the extent of changes that need to be made, a surgeon may recommend non-surgical nose reshaping or secondary (revision) rhinoplasty.
Case 75: Getting a severely crooked nose as close to perfectly straight as possible is one of the hardest things to accomplish in rhinoplasty. Our extensive experience at Profiles with traumatic noses has us well positioned to treat these difficult cases and achieve a nasal contour that is no longer a focal point but now blends with the rest of her features.
Rhinoplasty surgery is one of the most common plastic surgeries performed each year. This procedure allows surgeons to make a number of changes to the structure of the nose, drastically altering a patient's appearance. However, as with any other surgical procedure, it is important for individuals to understand all possible outcomes and set realistic expectations before undergoing rhinoplasty.
Rhinoplasty surgery, also known as nose reshaping surgery, can be used to correct a number of aesthetic flaws. The surgery can result in a greater balance of facial features, the elimination of bumps or unevenness, and a noticeable change in the size of the nose. In order to achieve ideal results, however, it is important for patients to be completely candid with their surgeon prior to surgery.
Case 37: Achieving a beautiful, natural change in an already beautiful woman is one of the great challenges we love in rhinoplasty. In front view you see a beautifully defined, natural change that simply looks great. Then on profile and 3/4 views, you see an elegant change where the tip is deprojected (made smaller) but retains a beautiful, natural aesthetic- this is finesse rhinoplasty.
She advises me that there are many conspiracies around botox- staying up right for more than two hours, is false for starters. ‘The solution takes 20 minutes to settle in your muscles, so I do advise you to stay upright for then, any longer wont make a difference’. She does however advise me not to undertake exercise that’s too strenuous or hot following the treatment (fine by me) and to carefully wash my face when I get home, not scrubbing or rubbing too hard.
When interviewing doctors, prospective patients should ask them about their approach to rhinoplasty. It is important to choose a doctor who addresses the airways, as well as the external structure of the nose. Even if a patient is undergoing the procedure for purely cosmetic reasons, the doctor should work to protect the nasal passages so that the patient can maintain normal breathing patterns.
The minimum age for rhinoplasty depends on both physical and emotional maturity. It's important to wait until your facial growth is complete, which is approximately at age 14 or 15 for women and in the late teens for men. There is no upper age limit for rhinoplasty, as long as you are in good general health. Many women and men come to Dr. Rival for nose surgery in their 40s and 50s.
