Denver Rhinoplasty in Colorado
The nose may be the most important feature on the face. An appropriate nose balances and harmonizes all of the other features on the face. It often amazes me how much different my Denver rhinoplasty patients' eyes, lips, and skin look after their surgery. A nose that is too large, long, wide, or round does not allow the other features on the face to shine. By changing the shape of the nose - sometimes subtly, sometimes dramatically - the entire appearance of the face is improved. Rhinoplasty is typically performed to:
- Shorten an elongated nose
- Narrow the bridge and/or tip of a wide nose
- Reduce the size of the nostrils
- Correct a prominent hump or hook
Retaining Character and Function
An important consideration when planning for a rhinoplasty procedure is the fact that the nose also adds some uniqueness to your appearance. In part, it is what makes you...well...you. This cannot be forgotten when we are doing nasal surgery. I have performed revision rhinoplasty in Denver on many unhappy rhinoplasty patients - whose surgery was performed elsewhere - who ended up with a nose that would look great if it were on someone else's face. We have to be absolutely sure that the end result fits your face. This is where our years of experience with computer imaging really come into play. We can use this powerful communication tool to envision the appropriate nose for you, and assure that you will be satisfied with your results.
We also have to be sure that the nose not only looks great, but also works well. Again, I have seen many unhappy patients whose attractive nose is so stuffy that they are miserable. Breathing well and smelling normally are also important features of a well-done rhinoplasty.
While most people are very happy with the new look of their nose after surgery, the fact remains that among cosmetic surgery procedures, rhinoplasty has one of the highest rates of patient dissatisfaction. In part, this may be due to poor communication between surgeon and patient during the consultation and planning process. Regardless, Dr. Menachof is highly experienced in refining the outcome of other surgeons' work. As a facial plastic surgery specialist with a strong aesthetic sense, he is trusted to create excellent results that are more in line with a patient's initial expectations.
If you are not happy with the result of a prior nose surgery, Dr. Menachof is happy to evaluate your nose and offer recommendations for how you can achieve your desired appearance. He can also suggest complementary procedures like facelift surgery in Denver for individuals who want to treat multiple conditions.
Your Denver Rhinoplasty Procedure
Most of the surgery is accomplished inside the nose. Occasionally a very small incision across the bottom of the nose is needed. Also, if the nostrils need to be narrowed there may be incisions at the nostril edges. All outside incisions heal beautifully and are virtually invisible in a short period of time.
