Rhinoplasty

Definition of Beauty

The beautiful nose

can be a diamond of the face. If it is too wide, curved disproportional it will undermine an otherwise attractive face. The perception of beauty is founded on the underlying principle of symmetry. Therefore the goal of the Rhinoplasty is to restore harmony between your nose and the face.

The Right Nose for you

Rhinoplasty surgery is a unique procedure because the nose can be sculptured in so many ways but only one will match with your dream. The surgeon needs to see your nose the same way as you, understand your problem and change it accordingly. Furthermore, besides the aesthetical part, the function needs assessing and if required improved upon.

That is why Dr Levente, your rhinoplasty surgeon with over 20 years, is able to manage both the aesthetic and the functional problem of your nose at the same time.

Form can not be without Function

Rhinoplasty surgery or better known as a nose job is a unique procedure as the surgeon needs to see your nose the same way as you, understand your problem and shape the nose accordingly.
Furthermore, besides the aesthetical part, the function of the nose needs assessing and if required improved upon. That is why Dr Levente, your rhinoplasty surgeon received the training to be able to manage both the aesthetic and the functional problem of your nose in the same time.

Open or Closed technique

The rhinoplasty can be performed either in open or closed technique depending on the complexity of the problems. The diffrences between these two approaches is small, only half centimeter skin cut in the bottom of your nose which is not visible at all. The swelling following the open procedure slightly longer, but the outcome is more predictable.

For minor tip refinement or smooth hump reduction the closed approach is advised, however better long-term results are achieved with the open technique, if you have prominent deformation, asymmetry or revision rhinoplasty.

If you believe your nose is not in harmony with your face, then you are a good candidate for rhinoplasty

Which technique would suit me best?

To achieve the desired outcome several different atraumatic approaches exist and based on the deformation problem the best one will lead to a predicted shape and provide long term outcome. You can see Dr Levente art work on our social media site.

We provide the following types of rhinoplasty method:

Open vs Closed Rhinoplasty
Dorsal preservation vs Structural rhinoplasty
Teo strut vs Septum Extension graft

Closed vs Open Rhinoplasty

The rhinoplasty can be performed as an open or closed technique, depending on the complexity of your case. The difference between these two approaches is small, only 5mm o skin cut in inverted V shape, which is not visible at all. The incision can be seen for almost 2-3 weeks, but the outcome is more predictable, defined. For minor tip refinement or smooth hump reduction the closed approach is advised, however for better long-term results ,the open technique is advised.

Dorsal preservation vs Functional or Structural Rhinoplasty

Dorsal preservation rhinoplasty is most commonly used when frontal view of the patient is normal, meaning the width of the dorsum is ideal. Slight deviation to the side also can be corrected. The problem is the dorsal hump, which can be seen in the lateral view. Here we are preserving the upper lateral cartilage and the septum connections. It can be combined with the push down method, when the bony pyramid is mobilized and the same form slides inside to eliminate the hump.

Functional or Structural Rhinoplasty is the gold standard method when after the correction of the shape deformation, like old trauma, all parts of the nose are reconstructed by using either septum or ear cartilage.

Teo strut vs Septum extension graft

The entire nose is a network of cartilage, ligament and skin, therefore a beautiful shape can be seen. One of the main problem after rhinoplasty is that the tip elevation is going down and when you look at your nose you wish it would be just a bit higher. Teo strut provides fix long term tip elevation, with relative tip mobility, however if the septum is short, we prefer to use of septum extension graft, which provides slight more rigid tip configuration.

Why we need to take extra Cartilage?

During rhinoplasty we are altering the supporting framework of your nose, which is built on the cartilage. To correct the deviation, we provide extra contour or fill up the empty space.

Ear or rib cartilage can be garneted. Dr Levente’s personal preference is the septum and ear cartilage because these cartilages have similar soft flexibility, however for revision rhinoplasty, when strong support is needed, rib would be the choice.

If you believe your nose is not in harmony with your face, then you are a good candidate for rhinoplasty.
