When it comes to deciding whether or not to have a rhinoplasty procedure performed, patients have to consider several different factors. In addition to considering their age, stage of life, their mental health and their physical health, patients also have to take note of the different approaches that are used for this procedure.
Expert surgeons who specialize in rhinoplasty procedures will often tell patients that the open rhinoplasty is the best way to have this surgery performed. Dr. Kevin Sadati, who performs this surgery on patients in the Laguna Beach area, agrees with other experts in his field.
There are several advantages and disadvantages to this surgical approach which involves dismantling the nose and in turn reassembling it with restructured and reduced cartilage and bone.
One of the main advantages to this approach is that it provides the surgeon the best possible vantage point for completing the surgery, ensuring that all the work done is done correctly and will provide the results the patient is after. It also is a highly successful approach that provides long lasting results for patients. Some disadvantages include the lengthy surgery time, which can range from 2-3 hours, and the fact that there is always a risk for revision. As this is a risk with any cosmetic procedure, Dr. Sadati does take pride in the fact that his personal revision rate is quite low.
In addition to researching before and after pictures of rhinoplasty procedures, and deciding what aspects of their nose they would like to fix, patients should put a considerable amount of time into finding the best surgeon possible. When a patient utilizes an expert surgeon, they will get the best results.
