Nose surgery (also called rhinoplasty) refines the shape of the nose. Dr. Freund can use three different techniques for nose surgery depending on the patient. Dr. Freund doesn’t take a cookie-cutter approach to rhinoplasty. Each procedure is tailored to the individual to achieve their goals without losing their unique features.
The goals for rhinoplasty surgery differ from patient to patient. If you have a large nose, a bump, a bulbous tip, or a wide nose, reduction may be in order. If you have a small nose or a nasal depression, or you need support to create an aesthetically pleasing nose, then augmentation using cartilage grafts or some other compound such as silicone or Porex may be the best option. Whatever your individual needs and goals, the primary objective of surgery will be to find the right key to unlock the right solution. Each procedure will be tailored to your needs and desires. No two noses are alike, and the surgical techniques will differ based on requirements.
Nose reconstructive surgery is typically performed from inside your nose. Dr. Robert Freund sedates his patients using local or general anesthesia, then makes incisions inside the nostrils, sometimes incising the septum between the nostrils. By separating the skin from the underlying cartilage and bone, Dr. Freund can significantly improve the shape of the nasal bones and cartilage for a more desirable shape.
