Rhinoplasty, a nose job, surgically enhances the nose for a more balanced facial aesthetic. Dr. Frankel loves using his training and expertise to personalize the surgery for a specific individual’s nose by reducing its size or resculpting its shape.
Cleveland Rhinoplasty Procedure Details
Dr. Frankel has multiple advanced techniques at his disposal when it comes to rhinoplasty and he will choose the best approach for each specific patient. Closed rhinoplasty involves making incisions within the nostrils where scarring will later be hidden from view. This approach can benefit those who need more subtle changes in the bridge, tip, and nostrils.
Open rhinoplasty involves a small incision across the columella at the base of the nose. Scarring in this area is virtually undetectable after surgery. This incision allows the surgeon to lift up the skin and tissue in order to gain full access to the internal nasal structures. Thus, this approach is ideal for those requiring more in-depth changes to the nose.
Dr. Frankel may also choose to employ cartilage grafting and other advanced techniques during your surgery. Once Dr. Frankel has addressed your concerns, the incisions are closed using fine sutures. Surgery typically takes 2-3 hours in total and is performed under general anesthesia.
In all cases, he will use his artistry and expertise to craft a natural-looking outcome that is balanced with your other features and that fulfills your unique vision for your appearance.
