This Rhinoplasty patient wanted a procedure that is often called Asian Rhinoplasty. She had been researching the procedure, and had been wanting to change what she considered a flat nasal bridge, as well as a lack of projection of the tip of her nose.
She doesn't want a drastic change of her facial features, but wants to change an area she feels needs correction. The Rhinoplasty surgery she chose to have, included placement of a Voloshin dorsal columella implant, on the bridge of her nose. There are a variety of sizes of this type of implant, and she was able to choose the type and size she felt would be best for her. Dr. Lepore works closely with his patients to determine what will best fit their facial features, and their goals.
Another of our patients who came to see Dr. Lepore for San Jose Rhinoplasty, or nasal surgery. This young woman had been bothered by what she considered flatness of her nasal bridge. She was interested in rhinoplasty, to increase both her nasal bridge, and the projection of her nasal tip. She discussed various options for surgery with Dr. Lepore, and had the opportunity to examine samples of different implants, and pictures of other patients' results. She chose to proceed with rhinoplasty, with a nasal implant; specifically, a Voloshin dorsal columellar Silastic implant. The surgery was performed in our fully-accredited operating suite, without complication.
The patient is very pleased the outcome, and the natural appearance of her new profile.
This is an example of a patient who wished to refine and enhance her own natural beauty. She felt that her nose was too broad, and also wished to have her chin slightly augmented. After discussing her concerns with Dr. Lepore, she elected to proceed with Rhinoplasty and a Chin Implant in San Jose, for further enhancement. (Chin Implant surgery is becoming a more popular way of altering facial contours. Many patients are also exploring fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm, to temporarily augment the chin, or make alterations in facial structure.) In this patient's case, she selected a surgical chin implant. It was also determined that she would be best served with a nasal implant, to preserve a natural appearance, while giving her the definition she wanted. The procedures were performed in one session in our outpatient surgical suite. The patient is very happy with her results, and her new look.
Natural Rhinoplasty results- This 26 yo patient came to us requesting a change to the shape of her nose. She wanted to remove the prominent “hump", but did not want to drastically change the shape and cultural feature of her face. We performed an open rhinoplasty to achieve these goals. We used 3d imaging software to approximate changes that she liked. These images were used during surgery to fine tune the result to her liking. Here she is 6 weeks postop already happy with her results.
