Different Types of Rhinoplasty
Everyone's nose is different, and so is every rhinoplasty procedure. For a primary rhinoplasty procedure, the skin is easily lifted with hidden incisions and the cartilage is sculpted, before the skin is redraped and your incisions are carefully closed. We also offer other types of rhinoplasty, depending on your individual needs
When your surgery with another surgeon did not produce satisfactory results. Scar tissue from your first surgery makes revision rhinoplasty more difficult. Dr. Miller and Dr. Heller may need to correct the removal of too much cartilage to give your nose a natural appearance instead of one that looks "operated on."
Open or Closed Rhinoplasty
Open rhinoplasty allows Dr. Miller and Dr. Heller to make a small incision between the nostrils, instead of just inside the nose as with closed rhinoplasty. The open technique allows for more visibility and precision during surgery. The small scar from the incision disappears over time.
Rhinoplasty with Sinus Surgery or Septoplasty
Surgery to correct chronic sinus conditions or breathing issues can be combined with rhinoplasty to enhance the appearance of your nose at the same time. Dr. Miller specializes in surgery on the inside and outside of the nose and performs this combination regularly. Insurance may even cover the sinus surgery.
Non Surgical Rhinoplasty
Although surgery will give you the best results, we recognize that some patients are not ready for plastic surgery. You can achieve some enhancements with the dermal filler Radiesse®, which can be used to give your nose a smoother profile. Radiesse® treatments generally last nine to 12 months.
