Rhinoplasty, also known as a "nose job" is a procedure that can improve the appearance of your nose, as well as its structure and function. It can bring balance to the face and enhance patients’ lives by increasing their confidence and self-esteem. Rhinoplasty can also help relieve breathing problems.
Dr. Mirmanesh, can enhance the look of your nose in a variety of ways; he can reduce or increase your nose’s size, change the shape of the tip, narrow the nostrils’ width, remove a bump, or change the angle or distance between the nose and the upper lip.
In the majority of cases, Dr. Mirmanesh, uses the open rhinoplasty technique, in which the procedure is performed through a small incision made across the small strip of tissue between the nostrils. This approach is best suited for more extensive and complex rhinoplasty surgeries.
Less complicated nose surgeries can be performed using the closed rhinoplasty technique, which is performed from the inside of the nose through an incision made along the inside of the nostril.
While closed rhinoplasty offers a "scar-less" result, in that the scar will not be visible to others, the open rhinoplasty incision is so small and often heals so well that it becomes unnoticeable following full recovery. It’s also important to understand that to reshape the nose, cartilage grafts — using tissue harvested from the nose, ear, or another part of the body — are sometimes used.
