If the surgeon you are meeting with uses simulation during your consultation, here are some key points to keep in mind ...
Surprisingly, the fastest growing demographic for injectables is men, particularly in uber-competitive environments such as New York City. When you think about it, it makes sense. Wanting to look and feel your best is not a desire held exclusively by women. Common reasons that men are seeking out these treatments include the desire to look less tired, or less angry (from having low/furrowed brows), and wanting to appear rejuvenated without a feminine or un-natural look.
You may be thinking about getting a chin implant to compliment your rhinoplasty. This is a good idea, and they work well together. An under-projected (small) chin, for instance, can make your nose appear larger. It can also make the angle between your jaw and neck appear undefined. By treating yourself to a chin implant, you’ll be complimenting your rhinoplasty by adding balance to your profile and providing yourself with optimal facial harmony.
Thank you for your inquiry; and yes, I’m happy to share some facts you should know if you’re considering being treated:
Traditional fillers replace lost volume (one of the by-products of aging). One great thing about Voluma® is that it can actually lift those sagging cheeks (you know, the ones that make your midface appear hollow and cause those deep laugh lines)
Fillers are products used to replace the volume we lose in our faces as we age. If done carefully and with a good aesthetic sense, you will look rejuvenated and natural.
Certainly, if too much filler is placed, or it is placed into the wrong location, it can look unnatural. For best results, we recommend seeking out a specialist who has expertise in using fillers in the face.
In the realm of facial plastic surgery, the most complex and detail-oriented operation is rhinoplasty. Therefore, it’s best to seek out a facial plastic surgeon who specializes in rhinoplasties and performs them frequently.
A surgeon with a strong background in rhinoplastic surgery will have expertise in the anatomy and functionality of the nose, ensuring both a fabulous looking nose, and the ability to breathe well after your surgery.
My nose will need to be packed and the packing removal is very uncomfortable.
In the past, many sinus doctors would pack the patients’ noses with gauze and remove the packing a day or days later. Ask anyone who has had nasal surgery with packing, and they will remark about how uncomfortable it was even years later! Fortunately, packing is not required at all. Newer technologies have obviated the need for it. Whether having traditional sinus surgery or in-office Balloon Sinuplasty, nasal packing is no longer required. It’s a good idea to seek a sinus surgeon who does not use nasal packing regularly.
Ultherapy is the only FDA-approved non-invasive procedure to lift skin on the Neck, Chin and Brow. Dr. Joshua Zimm Manhattan, NY Facial Plastic Surgeon discusses the top 5 myths about Utherapy treatment.
By Dr. Joshua Zimm
Rhinoplasty is the most complex and challenging operation in all of plastic surgery. Not only must the nose match the face, but also each section of the nose must be harmonious with all the others. For example, removing a bump without changing the tip in many cases can make the tip appear like it’s sticking out too far from the face. Conversely, changing the tip alone without addressing the bridge can make a bridge appear too high or too wide. A rhinoplasty surgeon must have great attention to detail and have an appreciation for all the nuances of nasal and facial harmony.
