Another great Realself.com answer from Dr. Goldberg! Today’s Realself answer pertains to advancements in rhinoplasty techniques and nose job surgery. Specifically a user wants to know what tools are available now to achieve the most natural looking results from rhinoplasty surgery. Toronto has a lot of options when it comes to plastic surgeons so its important to choose a doctor who knows the fundamentals for getting the natural looking nose you want.
Q: (sic) Advancements & tools made in the past 5 years for rhinoplasty to achieve better results – & a natural nose .I’m interested in finding out about new tools& camera’s to help Dr’s perform better.
A: 3-Dimensional imaging such as Vectra (Canfield) help surgeons to plan surgery and communicate anticipated results with patients. Some techniques have been refined, such as tip sutures and the use of supportive grafts to maintain long term results. However, the fundamentals of rhinoplasty are essentially unchanged over the past 20 years.
Rhinoplasty (Nose Surgery) is perhaps the most complex cosmetic operation as it involves complex anatomy, different types of tissues, a keen aesthetic judgement, and a balance with function. You would be wise to find a plastic surgeon with experience and an interest in Rhinoplasty who has consistent results, not the surgeon who promotes “new” or “advanced” techniques.
