Sometimes, a person might be suffering from sleep loss or having trouble breathing, and he might decide the time has come to consider a rhinoplasty procedure. Another person might be feeling a lack of self confidence and suffering from a negative body image due to the size or shape of their nose, and she might be thinking that a nose job might be for her. No matter what reason a patient might have for considering a rhinoplasty, it is important that they know most surgeons will want to perform an open rhinoplasty.
This is often true for Dr. Kevin Sadati a board certified facial plastic surgeon, who services the Costa Mesa area. During the course of several decades, Dr. Sadati has performed this surgery more times than he can count.
Most patients he sees require an open approach and there are several reasons for that. This approach to a nose job essentially means that the surgeon will be dismantling a person’s nose, restructuring the cartilage and bone to make it function better and look better, and subsequently put it back together again. It may take more time than a standard procedure, but most patients find the two or three hour surgery to be worth the long term results they receive in the end.
One of the reasons this approach to this particular cosmetic surgery is so successful is because of the cartilage grafts that are placed in the nose. These provide the structural support to ensure that the work done during the surgery lasts for a long time. While there is always a possibility that a revision surgery might be needed, Dr. Sadati’s personal revision rate is very low.
