Many patients who come to the practice of Dr. Jeffrey J. Roth in Las Vegas, NV may have question about facial procedures that can be performed to improve their appearance. One of the most common requests is for the rhinoplasty surgery, also known as a “nose job.” The rhinoplasty procedure can address the function and appearance of the nose in different way. Dr. Jeffrey J. Roth has completed a list of “frequently asked question” regarding the rhinoplasty surgery he has heard from previous potential patients:
What can a rhinoplasty do?
The rhinoplasty procedure is used to correct a physical issue of the nose. It is often cosmetic, though patients with a deviated septum or other breathing obstruction may have the procedure done for medical reasons. The rhinoplasty procedure is often used to address:
- Deviated septum
- Overly wide nose bridge
- Mispositioned or malformed tip
- Overly large or unusually shaped nostrils
- Oversized nose
- Undesirable depressions or bumps
- Trauma or birth deformities
How successful are rhinoplasty procedures?
When performed by a skilled plastic surgeon, many patients will find the rhinoplasty procedure to be both successful and predictable. The success depends on the type of condition being treated, the skill of the doctor, and realistic expectations from the patient regarding what can be achieved with this procedure. This is all discussed during a consultation visit with Dr. Jeffrey J. Roth.
Hold old do you have to be to have a nose job?
Many of our procedures are performed on adult patients. However, children and teenagers may be treated, especially if there is a medical concern such as obstructed breathing, deviated septum, or a birth deformity. A consultation appointment is the best way to find out if a patient is a good fit for treatment.
