For years, the nose job has been one of the most popular and well-known cosmetic surgery procedures, which has led many people to believe mistakenly that all rhinoplasty procedures are performed in the same way. However, this couldn’t be further from the truth. There are many different types of rhinoplasty procedures, each designed to provide patients with individual, natural-looking results.
The different types of rhinoplasty procedures include:
Primary Rhinoplasty — This rhinoplasty procedure is performed on patients who have never had a rhinoplasty procedure performed in the past. In some cases, patients opt to have an augmentation rhinoplasty where the features of the nose are enhanced or increased in order to improve facial harmony. In other situations, patients may have a reduction rhinoplasty in order to reduce the overall size of the nose.
Revision Rhinoplasty — This type of rhinoplasty is performed to correct any issues that have arisen as a result of a primary rhinoplasty procedure. The revision rhinoplasty is a more complex procedure with a longer, more arduous recovery period.
Ethnic Rhinoplasty — This rhinoplasty procedure is designed for patients in specific population groups. The goal of the ethnic rhinoplasty is to enhance the natural ethnic features on a person’s face without minimizing their culture or heritage.
“As each person is unique, I believe that each rhinoplasty procedure should be personalized in order to meet the needs of the individual patient,” said Dr. Kevin Sadati. “I create customized surgical plans that are designed to provide every patient with natural-looking results.“
Patients who would like more information about the rhinoplasty procedure are invited to set up a free cosmetic consultation with Dr. Kevin Sadati. At this appointment, the surgeon will determine if you are a qualified candidate for the rhinoplasty, and will help you decide on the type of surgery that is right for you.
