One of the most common cosmetic procedures, rhinoplasty is also known as a “nose job.” This surgery reshapes the nose, altering its size, shape, or projection.
In an open rhinoplasty, an incision is made on the bottom of the nose between the nostrils so that the cartilage and bone are exposed. This allows for more extensive changes to be made to the nose.
A closed rhinoplasty is also known as a “scarless rhinoplasty” and is performed through incisions made within the nostrils. This is an effective procedure for patients seeking smaller changes to their nose.
If a previous rhinoplasty leads to unsatisfactory results, a second rhinoplasty can be performed. This is known as a revision rhinoplasty.
For patients of non-Caucasian backgrounds, special considerations can be taken to ensure that their results appear natural and harmonious with their features. Dr. Ransom understands the specific considerations for ethnic rhinoplasty so that each patient reaches natural-looking, beautiful results.
