Teenage Rhinoplasty San Diego

This is a great example of teenage rhinoplasty in this young, ethnic female patient who desired a nose that looked smaller and more defined overall. Her nose was rather broad as seen from the frontal view. On her oblique and side views, you can see how the bridge height was a bit excessive with poor shape. In addition, you can see how her nasal tip was a bit ptotic - also called a droopy nasal... Continue Reading

Reshaping A Hanging Columella

This is a great case example of how rhinoplasty can help in reshaping a hanging columella. A hanging columella refers to an overly prominent columella - the column of tissue that sits between the two nostril openings. This ethnic, female patient from San Diego desired to have her heavy columella reshaped at the same time as her bridge was made straighter and her tip was defined. If you look at her preoperative photo, you can... Continue Reading

Classic Hump/Bump Reduction

If there were ever a classic rhinoplasty case - it would be reduction of a dorsal hump/bump deformity. Many patients erroneously think that it is super simple to remove a bump off a nasal bridge. In reality, shaving a bump down is fairly easy in terms of the surgical technique. The real challenge is making that nose look good long-term without creating a number of other cosmetic issues once the bump has been removed.  This... Continue Reading

Bridge, Tip and Base Narrowing

This is a great case example of how an ethnic, female nose can be narrowed throughout - meaning the nasal bridge, tip and base - while maintaining a natural appearance. I saw this female patient for rhinoplasty consultation on several different occasions - mostly because we both wanted to be very open and in agreement with the intended goal in terms of cosmetic nose reshaping. One of the most important factors in her case -... Continue Reading

Teenage Ethnic Rhinoplasty

Over the past decade (and even more so in the last 5 years), my practice has seen a steady rise in the number of teenage patients seeking cosmetic nose job, or rhinoplasty, surgery. This observation is backed up by a number of recent studies that have confirmed the increasing number of teenage patients seeking cosmetic nose reshaping surgery. Such a trend is really not surprising, though, given the rapid growth of various social media platforms,... Continue Reading

Droopy Nasal Tip Rhinoplasty

Droopy Nasal Tip Rhinoplasty This is a great case example of how rhinoplasty surgery can help to address a ptotic nasal tip. The term 'ptosis' means 'drooping' of the nasal tip region. These type of noses are also commonly referred to as drooping noses and hook noses. When you see a ptotic nasal tip, you really do notice it because one can easily appreciate how the tip of the nose appears to drop off from... Continue Reading

Persian Middle Eastern Rhinoplasty

Persian (Iranian) rhinoplasty is a very common type of Middle Eastern cosmetic nose surgery performed in my practice. In fact, I would say that Persian (Iranian) patients make up a significant portion of my ethnic rhinoplasty patient population. This should not really be surprising, however, since Iran is widely considered by many insiders to be the rhinoplasty capital of the world - making nose job surgery quite acceptable within the Persian culture. Presented here is an excellent example of cosmetic... Continue Reading

She then schedule a consultation with my office to determine whether or not cosmetic nose surgery was an appropriate choice for her. African-American Rhinoplasty Presentation On presentation, her main desire was to have... Continue Reading

This very pleasant young lady consulted with me to discuss options for her bulbous appearing nasal tip. Although she also desired to address a bump on her nasal bridge, the bulbous nasal tip was considered a priority for her. Bulbous Wide Nasal Tip Consult During her examination in the office, we discussed in detail the desired changes to... Continue Reading

Rhinoplasty Transformation

In some cases of cosmetic rhinoplasty, the changes made to the shape of the nose can have a much more dramatic impact on the overall facial appearance. This is a great example of such a case. This young lady from San Diego consulted with me in the hopes of having cosmetic nose reshaping surgery. More specifically, she did not like the bump on the bridge and the wide appearance as seen from the frontal view. In... Continue Reading

Hispanic Rhinoplasty Case

This is a great example of cosmetic nose surgery in an ethnic Hispanic rhinoplasty patient. This young lady came to my office desiring reshaping of her nose. Having a practice based relatively near the border of Mexico, I happen to see a large number of ethnic rhinoplasty patients who have Hispanic roots. Consequently, Hispanic cosmetic nose surgery has become a significant part of my ethnic rhinoplasty practice over the years. In this particular Hispanic rhinoplasty... Continue Reading

Finesse Female Ethnic Rhinoplasty

One of my favorite operations to perform is ethnic rhinoplasty. I love this procedure because it requires so much preoperative consideration as well as technical execution in the operating room. I thought this was a particularly notable case example of a young, ethnic female rhinoplasty patient who desired reshaping of her nose. Specifically, she desired to have a more narrow bridge contour in addition to lifting and refining the nasal tip region. All the while,... Continue Reading
