Nose Reshaping Before & Afters Case #10724
This 55-year-old man wanted to correct his drooping nasal tip but avoid the kind of dramatic changes that would alter the shape of his nose too obviously. Like most patients, he wanted results that would look natural for his features, but when he met with his rhinoplasty specialist in Los Angeles, he expressed a particularly strong desire to keep his results subtle. His surgeon talked with him about his options and discussed how they could make these changes practically, and after they settled on a surgical approach he gave him clear information on how to prepare for his surgical procedure.
At Marina Plastic Surgery Associates, the board-certified plastic surgeons offer a number of different rhinoplasty techniques to accomplish goals ranging from minor cosmetic enhancements to more complex corrections of the inner structure and function of the nose. Very minor procedures can sometimes be accomplished with injectable fillers alone, but for reduction rhinoplasty (even moderate reduction like this patient wanted), surgery is necessary to reduce the excess cartilage and bone that give the nasal bridge a larger, "humped" appearance.
As a result of his Los Angeles rhinoplasty, this patient's nose is showing noticeable improvements. At the same time, his photos also show very clearly that his results look subtle and very natural, and not at all "overdone." Instead of drooping and detracting from his appearance, his new nose complements his angular, defined facial structure very well. His surgery has given him the natural-looking, subtle changes he desired, and he is pleased with his results.
