Ethnic Rhinoplasty in Montreal

Rhinoplasty, also known as nose surgery, is a popular plastic surgery procedure in the United States and Canada. Those who are bothered by the size, shape or asymmetrical nature of their nose may be good candidates for nose surgery. Individuals with a "Roman" nose (a nose with a large arch), deviated septum or severe breathing problems may also be suitable rhinoplasty candidates.

Many people may not realize that ethnic rhinoplasty is also increasingly popular. Ethnic rhinoplasty is designed for patients of non-Caucasian ethnic descent. With ethnic nose surgery, the conscientious cosmetic surgeon corrects deviations of the nasal structure without completely eliminating ethnic-looking characteristics that make the patient unique and beautiful. The goal of ethnic rhinoplasty is not to westernize patients, but to make them look like a better version of themselves.

Open and Closed Rhinoplasty in Montreal

Well-trained nose surgeons utilize one of two rhinoplasty techniques: the open method or the closed method. With the open method, the Montreal nose surgery provider makes an incision on the columella, the strip of tissue that separates the nostrils. With the open approach, the highly skilled plastic surgeon can easily access the underlying nasal structure, giving the surgeon more control during nose surgery. However, recovery after open rhinoplasty typically takes longer than with the closed approach, and patients may have a slightly noticeable scar with this method.

On the other hand, the closed method leaves no visible scars, because the nose surgeon makes the needed incisions inside the nostrils. Recovery is quicker with the closed method, but this technique gives the plastic surgeon less visibility and control during the procedure. The plastic surgeon and the patient will discuss both techniques during consultation and will decide which is best for the patient, given his or her anatomy and surgical desires.

Other Options

Many nose surgery Montreal patients undergo a complementary cosmetic procedure during or after rhinoplasty. Practiced plastic surgeons use injectable soft-tissue fillers, such as Restylane or Juvederm, to improve the visible results of rhinoplasty. Injectable fillers can be used to add volume to the tip of the nose, or to replace lost volume in other regions of the face. Many additional cosmetic treatments are available to complement rhinoplasty. Patients should discuss all their options with their knowledgeable plastic surgeon.

Rhinoplasty patients can also enhance aesthetic results with adjunct facial plastic surgery procedures, including facelift, brow lift or eyelid surgery. Montreal blepharoplasty providers can sculpt the patient's nasal profile then lift the patient's sagging eyelids to provide the patient with comprehensive surgical results that rejuvenate the face while harmonizing facial features.
