When it comes to plastic surgery of the face, there are a number of treatments that can be performed for patients. It is important that patients consult with a professional with experience to learn about the ways in which the face can be altered for aesthetic purposes. Dr. Armen Serebrakian and his team at the Bay Area Laser Cosmetic Surgery Center is excited to offer facial procedures such as the rhinoplasty to help patients look and feel their best.
What is the rhinoplasty procedure?
A rhinoplasty, sometimes referred to as a “nose job,” is a cosmetic or medical surgery performed to change the shape of the nose, correct breathing issues, or address birth defects. The procedure varies greatly from patient to patient based on the unique needs of an individual and the method of surgery performed. Dr. Armen Serebrakian encourages women considering rhinoplasty procedures to book a consultation appointment with him to discuss their needs. A treatment plan can be developed and patients can learn more about what to expect from the procedure itself.
Why might a patient consider rhinoplasty surgery?
There are several common reasons why patients seek the assistance of a plastic surgeon to undergo rhinoplasty surgery. Patients might think about a rhinoplasty procedure to:
- Change the shape or size of the nose with the modification of bone and cartilage
- Repair the nose following an injury or disfigurement
- Correct breathing problems
- Correct a birth defect
What happens during the rhinoplasty procedure?
The steps required for a rhinoplasty are unique to the patient themselves. Not everyone will achieve results in the same way. During the consultation visit, our plastic surgeon will ask the patient what they would like to achieve with the procedure and then explain to the patient what will be done to achieve those results.
