Rhinoplasty (Nose) Surgery: Our Approach 

Reshaping the nose is one of the most common cosmetic facial procedures done in the USA.  While the general technique is somewhat standard in principle, there are many, significant differences in specific techniques by individual surgeons. 

Hence, the importance of the selection of a surgeon.  Rhinoplasty surgery is done by both ear, nose and throat specialists (otolaryngologists) and Plastic Surgeons.  (See credentials »)

At North Dallas Plastic Surgery, the approach to each patient is individualized, beginning with the consultation, computer imaging and planning and, of course, surgery.  We do rhinoplasty comfortably and safely under local anesthesia with twilight sleep (IV sedation).  Most of these procedures can be done in our accredited office operating room (see anesthesia » and office surgery »)

In our consultations, an in depth discussion of specifics of procedure, projected results, possible complications and recovery is carried out by the surgeon, not an assistant.  Computer imaging is used in discussing the patients goals and surgeons opinions and projected results.  (see computer imaging »)

A cosmetic rhinoplasty is not covered by insurance, however, any additional functional procedure may be covered. In other words, a correction of a deviated septum causing nasal airway obstruction is considered medically indicated and is usually reimbursed by insurance companies.

As with any other cosmetic procedure, the best way to obtain specific information is in a personal consultation with one or more surgeons certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.

Chin Enlargement (augmentation)

This is a relatively minor procedure in which the prominence of an underdeveloped jaw is accomplished with a solid silicone implant.  Chin Augmentation is often done in conjunction with a rhinoplasty, since a balance between the nose and chin are important to facial beauty.
