Rhinoplasty (Nose Surgery)
A beautiful nose doesn’t draw attention to itself. It should simply be in balance with the structure of the face, taking a back seat to the beauty of your eyes and your smile. Rhinoplasty can reduce, enlarge or reshape your nose to improve both it’s appearance and function. Your choice of surgeon is important. Your surgeon’s skill and esthetic talents will determine how your face will look—and how you feel about yourself—for the rest of your life. That’s why discriminating patients so often turn to the experience and expertise of Dr. Richard D. Zeph. He can beautifully sculpt your nose for both form and function. Dr. Zeph has the advanced surgical training and experience needed to achieve impeccable results. Through his well-honed rhinoplasty techniques, he can balance features and give you the stunning results you seek.
What are the latest options?
If your desire is to make a significant change to your nose or if you’ve had nasal surgery before, a procedure called “open rhinoplasty” may be an option for you. Open rhinoplasty allows for a higher degree of precision and more predictable outcomes. Dr. Zeph was a fellow with the renowned, innovative rhinoplasty surgeon Dr. Calvin Johnson in New Orleans, Louisiana. When studying with Dr. Johnson, Dr. Zeph learned specialized nasal surgery techniques that allow one’s nose to be precisely reshaped. The procedure is performed under general anesthesia or sedation anesthesia. Some bruising and swelling will probably occur, but the minimal pain and discomfort that accompany open rhinoplasty is relatively easy to control with medication (no packing is used).
Your nose is unique.
Because each patient’s nose is different and each patient has different medical requirements and desired results in mind, Dr. Zeph spends a good deal of time designing your personal treatment plan. He’ll take the time to listen to your concerns and to answer any questions you may have in advance of his reshaping your nose.
Gentle techniques for smoother recoveries.
Dr. Zeph uses gentle, advanced techniques that minimize bruising and discomfort often associated with nasal surgeries so that you can get back to your normal routine as quickly as possible. And after a nose-reshaping procedure by Dr. Zeph, patients often say their noses not only look better, but they work better too.
