You may feel your nose isn’t quite right, whether too large, too wide, crooked, or for several other reasons. As the central feature of your face, any issues regarding nose size, shape, symmetry, rotation, or projection will affect the harmonious balance of your facial features
Your Journey, Step by Step
Once it is established that you are healthy and safe to undergo surgery, your date for the procedure will be set. On the actual day of your surgery, you will arrive at the surgery center where you will be prepped for surgery. Once you are in the operating room, general anesthesia will be administered by a certified anesthesiologist, who will be monitoring you throughout the procedure. Every nose reshaping surgery is different, and there is no “cookie-cutter” approach to this procedure. Dr. Sulyman-Scott is one of the very few plastic surgeons in the country that is trained in both closed and open rhinoplasty techniques.
- Closed Rhinoplasty: This approach is feasible for a large number of rhinoplasty patients. The incisions are placed within the nostrils with no external scars.
- Open Rhinoplasty: This approach involves placing an incision at the base of the columella – the strip of tissue between your nostrils. This allows for total access to the nose structure, which is necessary for most complex nose reshaping surgeries.
Based on the changes you need, tissue, cartilage, or bone will be altered to bring your nose into balance with your other features. When performed by Dr. Sulyman-Scott, this procedure is executed with meticulous attention to detail, employing the latest surgical techniques to bring about a beautiful, natural-looking result.
