Different Rhinoplasty Surgical Techniques and Procedures PSCStaff November 23, 2013 Rhinoplasty The rhinoplasty procedure is one of the most common cosmetic surgery procedures performed in Orange County. This is largely because of the fact that the nose is one of the biggest focal points on the face and because patients are able to customize this procedure in order to fit their needs. As an expert facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Mohsen Tavoussi uses a variety of different rhinoplasty techniques and approaches when working with Huntington Beach patients. Dr. Tavoussi works with the individual patient in order to determine which nose job technique will be best for them. What is the Closed Approach? The closed approach requires Dr. Tavoussi to create incisions inside the nostrils and complete the procedure. The closed approach is ideal for many patients because there is no visible scarring associated with this surgery. However, it limits the surgeon’s capabilities and restricts the results that can be achieved. What is the Open Approach? In the open approach, Dr. Tavoussi creates the incision in the small piece of skin between the two nostrils. This allows him to remove the skin from the top of the nose and take a bird’s eye approach to the surgery. There is minimal scarring associated with this procedure, and it allows Dr. Tavoussi to create dramatic results for the patient. What is the Ethnic Rhinoplasty? The ethnic rhinoplasty is a nose job designed for patients who want to improve their appearance without giving up their ethnic identity. Each ethnicity, race and nationality, has its own set of genetic traits that can be improved without being compromised during the surgery. What is the Male Rhinoplasty? The male rhinoplasty is the nose job procedure designed specifically for male patients. Men who want to improve the appearance of their nose without giving up their male features can do so when they opt to have this procedure completed. What is the Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty? This unique cosmetic procedure allows patients to improve the appearance of their nose without undergoing a major operation. Dermal fillers are injected into the nose, allowing Dr. Tavoussi to reshape and redefine the nasal tip and nasal bridge. Results are seen immediately, but they are only temporary. Non-surgical rhinoplasty results last for about 6-9 months. Irvine patients who are interested in approving their appearance and restoring facial harmony will likely be drawn to the rhinoplasty procedure. This cosmetic surgery is the perfect option for many people, largely because there are so many different techniques that can be used in order to achieve the most natural-looking results for any individual patient.
