- Dr. Inessa Fishman
This 19-year-old woman was bothered by her nose’s bridge bump and a tip which drooped with smiling. She had tried a non-surgical rhinoplasty in the past, and felt it did not give the aesthetic results she was seeking. This patient decided to proceed with surgical nose reshaping; and facial plastic surgeon Dr. Inessa Fishman performed her surgery using preservation rhinoplasty techniques, which provide a more natural-appearing result and a shorter recovery. The patient is shown 1 week after nose surgery, with a great result and mild resolving swelling. She is thrilled with her surgery outcome, and her nose will continue to refine in shape over the next few months.
About Rhinoplasty Procedure
Rhinoplasty is surgical reshaping of the nose, a treatment which permanently improves the nasal contours. Concerns treated with rhinoplasty include an overly long or too-short nose, a bridge hump and a too-low nasal bridge, and a droopy or overly full or “ball-like” nasal tip. A crooked nose or a nose with unsatisfactory changes after previous trauma or nose surgery is also treated with rhinoplasty. Our facial plastic surgeon Dr. Inessa Fishman specializes in both preservation and piezo rhinoplasty, which both utilize advanced techniques for less post-operative bruising and swelling as well as natural, long-lasting results. Dr. Fishman also performs traditional and revision rhinoplasty. She commonly performs rhinoplasty surgery as a standalone procedure or in combination with a septoplasty or blepharoplasty.
