What is Rhinoplasty Surgery?
Rhinoplasty, sometimes referred to as a “nose job” by patients, enhances facial harmony and the proportions of your nose. It can also correct impaired breathing caused by structural defects in the nasal cavity. Rhinoplasty or nose surgery that is done to improve an obstructed airway requires careful evaluation by the plastic surgeon of the nasal structure as it relates to airflow and breathing.
Dr. Roth’s Houston Rhinoplasty surgery exercises multiple techniques and measured incisions to enhance facial harmony with the proportions of your nose. Our renowned plastic surgeon, Dr. Roth applies defined symmetrical techniques to beautify your nose size in relation to your facial balance. The procedure is accomplished through a blend of carefully tailored mathematical measurements for each individual and scientifically proven methods to construct a proportional and ideal rhinoplasty.
Once the plastic surgeon has evaluated your facial structure and aesthetic goals he will use an advanced surgical technique to create insignificant incisions to your nose to access your cartilage. He will then reshape your cartilage, customizing the alterations to create a more natural position in dimension to your face.This scale will create a symmetrical ratio from the nasal height to the total facial height.
This precise method acquires two types of incisions-open rhinoplasty and endonasal rhinoplasty. Open rhinoplasty incisions are made outside the nose with a small access incision on the underside of the nasal area. Endonasal rhinoplasty incisions are made inside the nasal passages. The plastic surgeon will then add/remove bone and cartilage from the perimeter around the nose. After that, your soft tissues and skin will then remodel based on the shape made by the underlying structure created. Dr. Roth’s exemplary rhinoplasty techniques has had a very powerful, confidence-building impact on his patient’s’ self-esteem.
