Since your nose sits in the middle of your face, it’s not only one of the first things that people notice about you, but it helps create who you are to others. When it’s out of balance, it can throw off your entire facial proportion, making you feel unattractive and self-conscious. A rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure to fix the look, shape and size of your nose. Many plastic surgeons consider rhinoplasty surgery to be the most difficult cosmetic procedure to perform. Creating the perfect nose for your individual face requires extreme technical skill on the part of your surgeon as well as a keen aesthetic eye. In short, a rhinoplasty is at the crossroads where plastic surgery meets art.
Since rhinoplasty is a complicated and difficult surgery, even the most gifted plastic surgeons don’t always get it right the first time. Revision rhinoplasty is commonly performed on those patients who are unhappy with their prior results or whose nose has changed over time resulting in a loss of tip projection or rotation, visible deformities, or a collapse of the nasal bridge. Revision rhinoplasty surgery is a more technically demanding surgery than primary rhinoplasty so it’s paramount that you see a surgeon with extensive expertise in this procedure. Dr. David Sieber has completed advanced training in revision rhinoplasty from some of the most renown rhinoplasty surgeons in the world. It’s also one of his passions as it requires both technical skill and experience as well as an artistic eye.
While many people like the way their nose looks, they have difficulty breathing through it. This can not only be frustrating, but it may hinder your lifestyle choices by making it difficult to perform certain activities. Breathing difficulties are commonly the result of a deviation in the septal cartilage deep in the nose or from large turbinates which are ridges inside the nose that help warm the air as it passes through your nasal passages. When either the septum or turbinates are abnormal, the airway passage is narrowed which constricts air flow.
