Rhinoplasty Oklahoma City
Although the nose may often be overshadowed by the attractiveness of other features such as the eyes or smile, it can nonetheless play a very significant role in facial aesthetics. The nose can either enhance the harmony of other facial features or detract from their beauty. If you are unhappy with the size or shape of your nose, Dr. Paul Silverstein has over 30 years of experience creating shapely nasal contours that are proportionate and meet each of his patients’ unique needs. Rhinoplasty is offered at our Oklahoma City practice to individuals from Tulsa, Norman, and various other locations throughout the state.
In addition to offering patients cosmetic improvement and enhanced self-confidence, rhinoplasty can also be performed to correct breathing or other functional problems. Most men and women who are interested in rhinoplasty are excellent candidates for the procedure. Teenagers who desire treatment for cosmetic reasons may not be suitable candidates for the procedure until later in adolescence when their nasal contours have stopped changing. To learn how your individual concerns can be addressed, whether cosmetic or functional, please schedule a rhinoplasty consultation at our Oklahoma City practice today.
The Rhinoplasty Procedure
Rhinoplasty is performed either at our on-site, nationally accredited surgicenter or at one of the two hospitals where Dr. Silverstein has surgical privileges. The procedure is completed while the patient is under either general or local anesthesia and generally lasts one to two hours. If rhinoplasty is combined with other procedures such as facelift, brow lift, or eyelid surgery, it may take longer to perform.
Dr. Silverstein will perform either open or closed rhinoplasty, depending on the patient’s needs. In closed rhinoplasty, an incision is made inside the nostrils. Open rhinoplasty is performed after an incision is made outside the nose along the tissue that separates the nostrils. After making the incision and temporarily separating the nasal skin to have access to the underlying cartilage and bone, Dr. Silverstein will sculpt the nose to the desired shape and size. The procedure requires the surgical precision and artistry that only an experienced cosmetic surgeon like Dr. Silverstein is able to achieve. Many of our rhinoplasty patients have traveled from Tulsa and other parts of Oklahoma in order to receive safe, effective treatment from a surgeon with a long history of creating beautiful results.
