Dr. Zhuravsky, a rhinoplasty expert, discusses the important keys to achieving great rhinoplasty results. As an expert surgeon who performs both primary and revision surgeries, Dr. Z has determined that there are several key aspects that are of critical importance, and if not respected can lead to poor results.
Dr. Zhuravsky explains why the consultation is one of the most important parts of the rhinoplasty and what patients should expect from a good quality surgeon. The consultation is the only time that patients can really have any influence on their outcomes. This is when they can discuss their changes with the surgeon and see if they are truly understood. They can also assess whether the surgeon seems to know how to achieve their desired results, and if they are willing to dedicate the effort.
Dr. Z discusses the most common fears that seem to hold back patients from proceeding with Rhinoplasty, and why they regret letting these fears hold them back once they actually go through with surgery.
Patient are afraid of 3 main issues:
Dr. Zhuravsky, a rhinoplasty expert, explains why the concept of “breaking” the noses is misleading.
The entire nose is NOT being broken in the common understanding of the words. In realty, we are making small and precise cuts in the bones in order to adjust their appearance.
The nasal bones are a small part of the nose overall, making up only the upper 1/3rd of the nose. Most of the hard work in rhinoplasty involves cartilage, which does not have to be broken. The nasal bones are thin but like all bone they are ridge. We make these fine cuts in order to preform the necessary adjustments, usually moving the nasal bones inward. An important point of caution is to avoid collapsing the nasal bones too far inward, resulting a very unnaturally thin upper nose.
Dr. Zhuravsky, a rhinoplasty expert, explains why we have to break the nasal bones when performing rhinoplasty surgery.
The “bone breaking” part of rhinoplasty is what patients seem to fear the most from rhinoplasty surgery. HOWEVER, it is not exactly what you may imagine it to be. What really happens, is that precise CUTS are made along the edges of the bones, in order to shape them. The purpose of this is to move the bones into a cosmetically favorable position that will make the nose look great as a whole.
