Every one’s anatomical structure and genetic makeup are different. That means that every rhinoplasty procedure must be approached in a customized, unique way. Dr. Kevin Sadati notes that each person who is interested in a nose job has different goals and ultimately one’s own perception on what would make them look better. It’s important that Orange County patients recognize that they should work with Dr. Sadati and that he will create a rhinoplasty plan that highlights their natural features and improves facial harmony, rather than try to create a nose that is a specific shape and size. Newport Beach patients with a wide nasal bridge will find that Dr. Sadati uses expert surgical skills and techniques to give them the rhinoplasty results they want.
Facts About a Wide Bridge Nose Job
There are three different surgical techniques that can be used to complete a rhinoplasty on a patient who has a wide nasal bridge. In some cases, Dr. Sadati will break the bones in the nasal structure in order to move the bridge closer together. In other situations, Dr. Sadati will use cartilage grafts to enhance the definition of the nasal bridge, allowing it to look slimmer and more narrow than before. The third surgical technique involves combining these two approaches in order to provide the patient with the best results possible.
Cartilage grafts help to provide the patient with better long-term results as opposed to using synthetic materials. Most surgeons will harvest cartilage from the patient’s own body. The most common options include taking cartilage from the ribs or simply using the nasal cartilage that is already present. Using natural body cartilage helps patients to avoid infections and adverse reactions to synthetic materials.
Specific factors such as the thickness of the nasal skin can impact how dramatic the rhinoplasty results will be in the end. When a patient has extremely thick skin on their nose, it can limit the amount of work that Dr. Sadati can do during the rhinoplasty operation. Dr. Sadati will discuss these specific factors with the patient during their consultation appointment. He then uses state-of-the-art imaging software to provide patients with an approximation of what they will look like after their surgery is complete and they have recovered from the operation. This helps patients to have a realistic expectation of the procedure.
When it comes to working with patients who have a wide nasal bridge and need to reduce the size of the nose, Dr. Sadati prefers to try to provide greater facial harmony rather than fit the nose to specifications arbitrarily decided on by the patient. The goal is for all patient to have a naturally improved appearance, rather than look like a completely different person.
