What is Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure to correct unbalanced facial aesthetics; it may also improve the function of your nose. Dr Frati performs rhinoplasty to improve the shape of your nose as it relates to the symmetry of your face. The bridge of the nose is often a point of focus in a nose job. Dr Frati can smooth your profile by reducing bumps and improving depressions. These corrections will make the shape of the nose more defined.[1]

Perhaps you find the tip of your nose troublesome? Patients interested in a nose job are often bothered by a large, drooping, hooked or upturned nose. Dr Frati can easily correct these issues.

Dr Frati recognizes that everyone’s nose is different. He will work hard to create a treatment plan that addresses your concerns and achieves a beautiful result. Familiarize yourself with all the doctor’s wondrous procedures by reading our blog.

Whether you want a slight improvement or a complete transformation, Dr Frati can do it! He goes above and beyond to ensure your nose is artfully sculpted. In difficult cases, he uses the most advanced technique: cartilage graft. The graft delivers the best outcome possible for his patients.[2] 

There are two surgical approaches to the nose job, detailed below. 

Open Rhinoplasty

An external, or open rhinoplasty, implements a trans-columellar incision that connects the channel between the two nostrils. This incision allows the nasal skin to be folded back, allowing Dr Frati to view the natural setting of your nose’s framework. This view will allow Dr Frati to better understand your nose and make minor adjustments that will yield dramatic results.

Closed Rhinoplasty

In an endonasal rhinoplasty, or closed nose job, Dr Frati makes all his incisions within the nostrils. The technique avoids visible scarring on the nose’s exterior. Dr Frati must work slowly and carefully because the procedure is done through such narrow openings.

Dr Frati shall discuss both of these techniques in your private consultation.

Benefits

Your nose job will restore facial harmony and balance. Even a subtle correction of a bump along your nose’s bridge can have a huge impact on the symmetry of your face. The surgery also has the added benefit of improving your nose’s function. If you have a deviated septum or other nasal issues, a rhinoplasty will help you breathe with ease.

Candidates

If you are unhappy with the appearance of your nose and have been thinking about a nose job for a while, it is time to take the next step. Ideal candidates are healthy men and women who may have difficulty with clear and unimpeded breathing.
