ETHNIC RHINOPLASTY IN ATLANTA
Dr. Jones received specific training in ethnic rhinoplasty procedures from two renowned plastic surgeons in Beverly Hills, California, and Dr. Lovell had the opportunity to study under acclaimed facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Bahman Guyuron. Ethnic rhinoplasty (nasal reshaping) is a niche area within the field of facial plastic surgery that provides specialized nasal reshaping services for patients who would like to preserve their distinct ethnic facial features, while simultaneously enhancing their overall facial aesthetics and/or repairing a health-related condition, such as a deviated septum. Ethnic rhinoplasty requires a comprehensive understanding of the patient’s delicate facial anatomy, and how to make significant cosmetic changes and improvements without compromising the integral aspects of the patient’s ethnic heritage.
At Muse Plastic Surgery, located in Atlanta, Georgia, Dr. Wright A. Jones and Dr. Sabine Lovell have a special interest in performing ethnic rhinoplasty procedures, and are able to offer patients dramatic rhinoplasty results while maintaining a harmonious balance between the nose and the rest of the face. Dr. Jones and Dr. Lovell employ meticulously nuanced surgical techniques to address and correct any aesthetic or cosmetic concerns expressed by their patients, without changing their unique facial features. The surgeons takes great care not to erase or distort their patients’ ethnic heritage or overall facial structure, instead using their surgical skills to enhance and perfect the facial features, while ensuring that the nasal reshaping results blend seamlessly with the rest of the face.
Dr. Jones and Dr. Lovell have expertise treating patients of all ethnicities and have performed ethnic rhinoplasty procedures for patients of Middle Eastern, Asian, African American, and Hispanic descent. They understand that the creation of a natural nasal appearance is far more complex than simply removing a bump or correcting asymmetry, which is why they customize each surgery to address the specific concerns and facial structure of the patient to produce beautifully natural ethnic rhinoplasty results.
ETHNIC RHINOPLASTY PROCEDURAL DETAILS
Ethnic nasal reshaping surgery is performed on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia or twilight (IV) sedation, and involves either an open or closed incision technique:
- Open Rhinoplasty: During this procedure, which is ideally suited for patients who require more comprehensive nasal reshaping, Dr. Jones or Dr. Lovell will make a small incision across the columella (the external end of the nasal septum)
- Closed Rhinoplasty: for this technique, which is better suited for patients needing only minor nasal modifications, Dr. Jones or Dr. Lovell will conceal the incisions within the nose
For both open and closed procedures, Dr. Jones and Dr. Lovell will construct a more proportionally balanced and aesthetically pleasing nose by utilizing pieces of cartilage from the septum (the partition dividing the left and right airways of the nose) to fortify and augment the pre-existing nasal structures.
Following your ethnic rhinoplasty procedure, you can expect to experience some degree of post-operative bruising and swelling around your eyes and cheeks, which should dissipate within 7-21 days. Dr. Jones or Dr. Lovell will place temporary nasal splints and external casts to support the nose and facilitate proper healing and will provide you with instructions as to the steps you can take to ensure a safe and successful recovery period.
