Patient Info

Dr. Inessa Fishman


This 23-year-old woman wanted to improve the appearance of her nose; she was bothered by a small hump on her nose bridge, and wanted the nasal tip to be less droopy.  Our facial plastic surgeon Dr. Inessa Fishman treated her with preservation rhinoplasty, a surgical technique that focuses on keeping intact as much of the natural nose anatomy (bone, cartilage, ligaments) as possible. Dr. Fishman performed the patient’s rhinoplasty to include smoothing of the nasal bridge bump, correcting nasal asymmetry; and refining and lifting the nasal tip. Incisions were hidden inside the nostrils for a closed rhinoplasty approach. The patient shown 6 weeks after treatment, with. great outcome and excellent healing.  Her nasal appearance will become more refined and the nasal tip less swollen over the next 10-12 months.

Rhinoplasty is surgical reshaping of the nose to improve its appearance and sometimes function, like breathing.  Dr. Fishman uses preservation rhinoplasty, piezo or ultrasonic rhinoplasty, and traditional rhinoplasty techniques to give you the most natural and elegant treatment results.  Because every patient has individually different anatomy and treatment goals, Dr. Fishman customizes her rhinoplasty approach to each person, and no two surgeries are exactly the same.


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.
