The Functional & Comestic Ins & Outs of a Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty - cosmetic, functional nose jobRhinoplasty (also known as a “nose job”) is one of the most common cosmetic procedures performed today and can make a dramatic difference in your appearance.  If you’ve always wanted to change the shape of your nose, rhinoplasty is a great option. What you may not know is that same procedure can  also correct birth defects, injuries caused by an accident, or some breathing problems that cause chronic stuffiness, post-nasal drip and even snoring.

In decades past, surgeons performed rhinoplasties mostly for appearance, with a secondary goal of preserving or restoring function. Today surgeons have come to realize the best results occur when we take form and function into consideration as one. Using the same approaches and incisions, I am able to straighten the septum, improve breathing, reduce a “bump” on the bridge and narrow the tip all at once! Not everyone needs all these corrections, of course, so I always have a very detailed discussion with my patients before delving into any surgery. Together, we develop a treatment plan to make sure your goals and desires are met and addressed.

I find rhinoplasty, both cosmetic and functional, to be one of the most rewarding and technically demanding surgeries I do. More than other type of facial plastic surgery, rhinoplasty requires not only an understanding of underlying anatomy, but a certain artistry. That’s why it’s one of my favorite cases!  Gone are the days of a “ski-slope” nose, the one-size-fits-all approach and narrowed airway. My priority is not only to make your nose fit the rest of your face, but to make it work even better than it did before.

If you have questions or concerns about a rhinoplasty procedure, I would love to meet with you and discuss your needs. To schedule an appointment, call the Emory Facial Center at 404 303-0101 or visit ww.emoryfacialcenter.org.
