Surgeon:
Dr. Inessa Fishman

Description

This patient is 44 year old woman bothered by asymmetry in her nostrils following a previous nasal surgery elsewhere. Facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Inessa Fishman, performed a reconstructive rhinoplasty using a cartilage graft from the patient’s ear. Dr. Fishman was able to perform the procedure in the office, removing the need for general anesthesia and allowing the patient an easier recovery. The patient healed very nicely and was back to her normal activities one month after the procedure. Here she is shown about three months post rhinoplasty. She is thrilled with her results!

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.
