Is This Your First Rhinoplasty?
About Rhinoplasty Surgery
Is this your very first rhinoplasty? If it is, please allow us to put you at ease. If there is no previous trauma to the nose and if you have not had any previous nose surgeries, a rhinoplasty essentially is a process by which existing nasal structures are resized, reshaped, and/or augmented in order to manipulate the appearance of the nose.
Rhinoplasty surgery is one of the more difficult facial plastic surgeries to perform, which is why it is all the more important that you are with a surgeon that you trust. Part of the reason why rhinoplasty is considered to be such a difficult surgery is due to the unique anatomy of each patient, varying in size and shape from nose to nose in addition to differences in skin type, ethnicity, nostril size, bridge size, and other details. If a rhinoplasty is completed without consideration of these details, a patient can end up with a very “uneven” nose. This is precisely why in your initial consultation, Dr. Solomon as your rhinoplasty surgeon will perform an accurate, complete analysis of the nose to determine its detailed aesthetic image and to identify any functional deformity that may or may not exist.
Get a glimpse at your new nose before every having surgery!
To help patients who want to know what a certain type of nose would look like on their face and to aid in determining the possible surgical outcomes, we utilize advanced computer imaging during consultations that allow a patient to see the look of different noses on their face. This is able to be done via Canfield Imaging software. Typically a patient will have their nose photographed from different angles professionally in their consultation, then having these photos morphed and modified accordingly by Dr. Solomon in this program to review the different surgical options.
Though this type of computer imaging cannot guarantee a given result and though we don’t offer a photo as a guarantee, it does provide a close, accurate map for what a certain type of nose might look like.
Are You Seeking A Revision Rhinoplasty in Toronto?
Correct Past Surgeries
If you have had a rhinoplasty performed by another surgeon that did not yield the results you thought, it is possible to seek what is called a “secondary rhinoplasty” or a “revision rhinoplasty”. Performing this surgery will allow an experienced cosmetic surgeon such as Dr. Solomon to do whatever he can to correct any problem that may have developed or that may be developing since your first rhinoplasty. Most of the cases that we have come across have been minor and easy to correct. If a major problem exists, it could prove to be challenging to repair damage done. This is due to the fact that the original anatomy that existed prior may no longer be in tact in addition to the scar tissue that now fills in the tissue planes that were there before.
No matter the extent of the damage, you do not need to worry. Dr. Solomon is an experienced surgeon, highly knowledgeable in a number of appropriate techniques to manipulate what is left of bone and cartilage to repair issues caused by past surgeries. It is our goal to ensure that a natural looking and properly functioning nose is achieved with all of our surgeries. Through an initial rhinoplasty consultation, we will work to diagnose the issue in detail and provide you with the options available to fix the problem.
Are You Seeking A Specialty Rhinoplasty?
Many of our patients come to us seeking a specialty rhinoplasty unique to their gender, ethnicity, and/or seeking a desired effect.
African-American Rhinoplasty : Generally African-Americans tend to require a specific type of rhinoplasty that is in tune with the characteristics and facial features unique to the ethnicity. For example, thicker skin, wider nasal passages, flatter nasal bridges, and wider nasal bones are highly common in African-Americans and performing any type of rhinoplasty must be done with the goal of enhancing and improving one’s facial aesthetics but without sacrificing the unique facial features that identifies an individual to their ethnicity.
Asian Rhinoplasty : Among the most multi-cultural cities in all of Canada, Toronto has a sizeable Asian population, most of whom have unique Asian-based facial characteristics that should not go unnoticed when undergoing a rhinoplasty. An expert in non-Caucasian rhinoplasty, Dr. Solomon specializes in reshaping techniques that specifically target Asian rhinoplasty patients including, but not limited to, the nasal tip lacking definition and projection; the limits of how high a nose bridge can be structured; reconstructing the nostrils; and setting realistic expectations for the results.
Persian Rhinoplasty : Among Dr. Solomon’s diverse patient roster, there are a number of Persian women who have come to the acclaimed surgeon, currently making up more than 30 percent of the patients carried at our practice. An expert in Persian rhinoplasty, it is Dr. Solomon’s pleasure to be able to contribute to the already-present natural beauty in a female Persian face. Some of the more common rhinoplasty work completed under the ‘Persian rhinoplasty’ banner is reducing the appearance of a dominant nose, achieving greater facial harmony, and to avoid creating a ‘Caucasian’ or ‘western’ nose. It is our intended commitment to maintain the facial features and look of the nose according to the ethnicity of the patient.
Transgender Rhinoplasty : If you have made the decision to undergo transgender surgery, your facial appearance is an oftentimes forgotten but equally important part of that transition. If you are seeking a gender-specific nose, why not book a transgender rhinoplasty consultation with Dr. Solomon? Having performed well over a thousand of these types of surgeries, we thoroughly understand the features that make a nose appear more feminine, such as narrower nasal passages, a steeper nasal bridge and narrower nasal bones. Give us the opportunity to complete a thorough analysis of your nose and provide you with the options available that will allow you to continue the transition process into the person you’ve always wanted to become.
Rhinoplasty For Men
Male Rhinoplasty is now common
Though cosmetic surgeons deal with far more women than men, there are more males coming forward today than ever before seeking high quality rhinoplasty work in Toronto. Many men typically come seeking aesthetic enhancements to the nose that would repair it from any number of injuries that may have incurred through sports or otherwise in addition to addressing issues such as snoring which is a highly common problem plaguing many men. No matter if it’s for subtle refinements to repair these types of issues or something more significant, our practice continues to accept men for male-specific rhinoplasty work that is sure to address the concerns of any of our male patients.
