Learn About What Rhinoplasty Is On behalf of TVLesson.com, I’m Dr. Jeffrey Epstein. I’m a board certified facial plastic surgery who specializes in surgical hair restoration. Let’s talk a little bit about rhinoplasty. Rhinoplasty is one of my favorite procedures to perform if not my very favorite and that is because it’s a both challenging procedure but also a tremendously rewarding procedure. The most common group of patients on whom I perform rhinoplasty on are women in their early to mid 20s up to life in mid 30s but a number of men also undergo this cosmetic surgery procedure. It is significantly transformative and how relatively subtle changes to the nose can make a huge difference not only to the image in individual projects to the rest of the world but as importantly how the individual feels about him or herself. My approach towards rhinoplasty is to not completely redo the nose and essentially do a cookie cutter nose for every patient. I think that that’s a disservice and while that may have worked have been a mode or desired approach back in the 60’s and 70’s and maybe even 80’s, 1980’s it clearly in the year 2009, 2010 it’s not the way we approach rhinoplasty and most plastic surgery procedures. My approach to doing rhinoplasty is to basically find out from the patient what it is that he or she is bothered about, what features they don’t like. It’s a bump, crookedness, wide bridge, broad tip, tip that hangs down, a lot of different things that patients may express. Then my goal is to look at the individual’s face and to figure out what type of nose both in terms of it’s tip design, in terms of the bridge, everything else would fit that patient best and attempting to do the least amount of reconstructive work so that we are focusing on improving the features with which the individual is unhappy while at the same time leaving the nose as much as possible the way it used to look.
