People in Huntington Beach often find themselves consider a nose job, or a rhinoplasty as it is called in the medical community, for many different reasons. Some people are not breathing well or sleeping well, and want to fix a deviated septum.
Other people simply want the focal point of their face to look the best it can. What many people don’t realize is that there are a lot of things to consider when deciding to have this cosmetic surgery done, including which approach the surgeon will use. More often than not, an expert surgeon will recommend having an open rhinoplasty performed.
Dr. Kevin Sadati is no exception. As a board certified facial plastic surgeon who specializes in the rhinoplasty procedure, Dr. Sadati knows that the open approach is usually the best way to complete this surgery.
It requires him to dismantle the nose and gives him the best vantage point for restructuring the bone and cartilage. The next step is to install cartilage grafts that will give the patient the support they need in order to have long lasting results following their surgery. Finally, the nose is put back together, and the surgery is complete.
This is a relatively complicated process, and; therefore, the surgery can take between two and three hours. While this is one of the disadvantages to the procedure, patients often find it is worth it because they will get the best results possible. It is important that patients do know, however, if this approach is used and a revision is required then the same approach will have to be used the next time. To find out more about this surgical approach and to decide if a rhinoplasty is right for you, call for a free consultation with Dr. Sadati. He will address any concerns or questions you might have.
