Rhinoplasty in San Diego
Because many people feel that the size or shape of their nose doesn’t fit the rest of their faces, nasal refinement, also known as rhinoplasty, is one of the most common facial cosmetic procedures. An appealing facial profile, with a well-proportioned nose as its centerpiece, can greatly enhance a person’s self-image and self-confidence. The highly skilled San Diego rhinoplasty surgeons at the Umansky Medical Center for Plastic Surgery specialize in reducing or increasing the size of the nose, narrowing its width, or changing the profile of the bridge or tip to achieve each patient’s desired nasal appearance.
There are a number of variations of rhinoplasty, and the selection of the most suitable technique depends on each rhinoplasty San Diego patient’s unique needs and desires. Drs. William and Jeffrey Umansky perform personal consultations with all patients to help them decide which procedures can help achieve their goals.
The surgeons start rhinoplasty procedure with an incision inside the nose or across the vertical skin that separates the nostrils at the bottom of the nose. This allows separation of the skin from the bone and cartilage beneath, which is then sculpted to create the desired shape and size. The surgeons then close the incision with sutures. A rhinoplasty procedure at our La Jolla practice usually lasts from one to two hours, depending on the extent of changes, and is an outpatient procedure. Most of our La Jolla rhinoplasty patients recover within several weeks.
