Rhinoplasty (Nose)

In the hands of a skilled surgeon, Rhinoplasty brings a softer, elegantly balanced look to the face.

Rhinoplasty with Dr. Bensimon

When selecting a surgeon for nose surgery, study their before and after photos closely. All noses should definitely not look the same. The best result is balanced with one’s overall appearance for a soft natural look. The days of turned up, pinched or bobbed noses are long gone. Modern surgery concentrates on softening the aspects of the nose the patient finds troublesome. A typical example is a women with a harsher, more masculine nose that is out of balance with the more delicate, feminine features of her face. In this example, the surgical goal is not to create a new nose but rather to take emphasis away from the nose and let her eyes be the first thing people notice.

Dr. Bensimon is at the forefront of the new era in rhinoplasty. Unlike older techniques that shaped the nose by taking away large sections of cartilage and bone, Dr. Bensimon’s approach is to utilize the cartilage present and painstakingly reshape it with precise sutures. The result is a natural, sophisticated look and a nose that is in perfect balance with your overall appearance.

Rhinoplasty is a very common procedure for both men and women and young as well as older patients. Teenagers in particular can suffer greatly about their appearance and often see a rapid growth of their nose at the time of puberty. If it is obvious that aesthetic issues are evident during this sensitive time, it is perhaps better to intervene earlier rather than later.

More Comfortable Techniques
Rhinoplasty has a reputation for being painful. It doesn’t have to be. Painful rhinoplasty is not the result of the surgery but rather caused by the practice of placing packing inside the nose. This practice is entirely unnecessary. When we avoid packing the nose, rhinoplasty is a very comfortable surgery. Dr. Bensimon also uses special techniques that minimize bruising and result in a quicker recovery. The use of natural products (Arnica Montana and Bromelain) also help shorten the duration of post-operative bruising and swelling.
