Nose Surgery in Beverly Hills
Of all the operations in the field of plastic surgery, rhinoplasty is considered the most difficult. It’s not that the of a nose job involves more bleeding, dissection or physical exertion; it’s that rhinoplasty is exacting and unforgiving. The precise configuration of the tip cartilages is not always known until the tissues are freed up and decisions must be made on the spot. Any change in the amount or shape of the cartilage initiates a process that causes further changes to take place long after the operation is over. And because the nose is in the center of the face small imperfections can have large consequences.
Many people seeking rhinoplasty or revision rhinoplasty in Beverly Hills have significant problems breathing through the nose. Additionally, any aesthetic changes might effect the function of the nose. It is for this reason that the rhinoplasty surgeon be well versed at functional surgery of the nose. I am board certified in both ENT (Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery) and Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and have over 20 years experience fixing nasal airways with septoplasties, turbinate reductions, perforation repairs, nasal valve adjustments and various other nose job methods. Many surgeons do not want to perform rhinoplasty except for the most simple of cases such as reducing a dorsal hump. In contrast, I welcome the challenge that nasal surgery poses and have developed a passion for it. Over the years I have performed thousands of rhinoplasties in Beverly Hills and I still find each case unique and educational. By critically analyzing my results I am constantly improving on the way I approach things. My patients in Beverly Hills have become more discerning and specific about what they hope to achieve and their expectations are higher than ever. While unrealistic expectations are certainly a source for concern, reasonable goals from sophisticated patients motivate me to “raise the bar”.
