Nose Surgery - Rhinoplasty
Historically rhinoplasty is known as one of the most demanding of operations in aesthetic surgery. The goal of a rhinoplasty is to both create an aesthetically pleasing nose, while at the same time improve the breathing function of the nose, if needed. It is Dr. Bain's philosophy that form and function be considered during the planning, operative and recovery phase of this procedure.
The shape of the face is the primary determinant of the subsequent shape of the nose that is created. The presence of nasal piercing can result in damage to the skin and the internal structure of the nose. This must be recognized and repaired. Additionally, if there is a problem with the ability to breathe through the nose this must be addressed.
Aesthetically, the nose must complement a face. Nobody wants to have a nose that people say, "Oh, she is so pretty except for her nose." The nose should be lost in the face; it should be a part of the whole. Remember, not every face is alike. Some surgeons create the same nose for every patient. Dr. Bain analyzes the facial structure of each patient independently and creates a nose that is individualized for each patient.
There are different techniques that are used for rhinoplasty; many with a specific indication. In following pages, you will see results complementing the patient's face with different techniques utilized.
