Question
Answer Header & Date
Answer Snippet
Is a lower blepharoplasty my only option?
Is a lower blepharoplasty my only option?
Jul 13, 2020
 The primary goal for a lower blepharoplasty procedure is to remove the fat bags creating the puffiness look in the lower lids. A trans-conjunctival approach can accomplish removal of those fat bags through an incision on the inside of the eyelids.  No external incision is required.  At age 45, there's probably very little skin there needs to be removed.
Is liquid rhinoplasty a good option for reducing a wide nose after rhinoplasty?
Is liquid rhinoplasty a good option for reducing a wide nose after rhinoplasty?
Jul 12, 2020
 No, placement of fillers in the nose is only temporary, will make the nose bigger, is not FDA approved for that application, and can have significant complications such as skin necrosis. There appears to be an open roof deformity from rasping the bridge.  Medial and lateral osteotomies placed in the nasal bones are going to be required to narrow the entire bridge line and close the flat-top, open roof deformity.

What kind of rhinoplasty do I need?
Jul 12, 2020
 A Closed rhinoplasty approach can accomplish your goals by narrowing the bridgeline, narrowing the nasal tip and shaving down the dorsal hump. Rhinoplasty is a very difficult endeavor, so choose your surgeon wisely based on extensive experience. It's impossible to give you a celebrity nose, so digital computer imaging of your nose upon your facial features would be helpful to understand what can be accomplished with the procedure
Lipo of the chin or Lower Facelift, suggestions?
Liposuction on the chin or lower facelift, suggestions?
Jul 12, 2020
 Much more information is needed such as a full set of facial photographs from all angles to make a determination about what is really going on here. Those photographs need to be in a chin neutral position.  The goal of a lower face and neck lift is to tighten loose facial and neck skin, tighten loose facial and neck muscles, lift the jowls, and remove any fatty deposits in the neck above and below the platysma muscle which also includes a platysma plasty which significantly improves the j...
Am I a good nose job candidate to fix my bulbous tip?
Am I a good nose job candidate to fix my bulbous tip?
Jul 12, 2020
 The bulbous tip can be caused from either wide cartilages, or thick skin. If you have thick-skin in the nasal tip, this is going to prevent refinement  in that area, and it may not be worthwhile. If the bulbous tip is related to wide cartilages, a conservative  cartilage removal and suture techniques can accomplish refinement. A closed rhinoplasty approach can accomplish your goals with placement of all of the incisions on the inside of the nose. No external incisions are required, and no...

How to correct asymmetry with revision rhinoplasty?
Jul 11, 2020
 Much more information is needed, such as a full set of facial photographs from all angles and a copy of your operative report. It's also important to have realistic expectations, since there is no perfect nose. The hanging columella can be reduced by removal of  excess skin and cartilage in that area.
My right nostril is indented inward. I have never had facial surgery or fillers. Can that be corre
My nostril is indented inward, can be corrected with filler?
Jul 11, 2020
 No, fillers would not be recommended to be placed in the nasal tip because it's only temporary, not FDA approved that application, and can have significant complications such as skin  necrosis, especially in the nasal tip. You have an inverted lower lateral cartilage in your nasal tip that will require closed rhinoplasty to harvest cartilage from inside the nose, and fill that  depression in  with a cartilage graft. All of these incisions are placed on the inside of the nose.

I want to fix my wide nose and slim down the tip
Jul 11, 2020
A closed rhinoplasty approach can accomplish narrowing the bridge line and narrowing the nasal tip cartilages. To narrow the bridge line requires osteotomies placed in the nasal bones to narrow the upper two thirds of the nose. To narrow the tip requires removal of excess wide cartilages in the nasal to area. Thick skin in the tip of the nose prevents refinement in that area, so it's important to have realistic expectations. It's impossible to bring the nostrils down, however they can be...
Am I a good candidate for a rhinoplasty and a chin implant?
Am I a good candidate for a rhinoplasty and a chin implant
Jul 11, 2020
 Yes, the side profile photographs demonstrate an overly projecting nose, and an under projecting chin. Consider a closed rhinoplasty approach to accomplish decreasing the overall projection of the nose, shaving down the dorsal hump, refining the nasal tip and narrowing the bridge line with all of the incisions placed on the inside of the nose.  No external incisions are required and no painful packing is required either. Consider placement of a chin implant  to augment the chin forward fo...

How long does Kybella stay in your system?
Jul 11, 2020
 In our practice, we do not recommend Kybella because is not very effective. It must be repeated multiple times  and patients become significantly swollen for several weeks after each procedure. Much more information is needed to make a determination about the best procedure for you, so a full set of facial and neck photographs will be required. Liposuction can accomplish removal of fat deposits above the platysma muscle in the neck, while a surgical necklift is required to remove fat d...
Inquiring about bulbous/wide/ethnic rhinoplasty, how much reduction and refinement can be achieved
Inquiring about bulbous/wide/ethnic rhinoplasty, how much reduction and refinement can be achieved realistically?
Jul 10, 2020
 A Closed rhinoplasty procedure can accomplish narrowing the bridge line, and refining the nasal tip cartilages with all incisions placed on the inside of the nose. An alar-plasty accomplishes narrowing wide nostrils with an incision placed at the base of the nostrils after removing a wedge of skin in that area to narrow them.  Thick skin in the tip of the nose prevents refinement in that area, so it's important to have realistic expectations. When patients have thick skin, a series of s...

How can I fix the appearance of my nose and chin
Jul 10, 2020
 When patients have a recessive chin profile, placement of a chin implant can accomplish augmenting the chin forward for better facial balance and  proportions, especially with respect to the  overly projecting nose from the side profile. A closed rhinoplasty approach can accomplish  shaving down the dorsal hump, narrowing the bridge line, decreasing the overall projection of the nose, and filling in the area between the two  nasal tip cartilages where there's cleavage. All incisions are ...

What deformities are present? Want to have smooth dorsal aesthetic lines and nice proportions
Jul 10, 2020
 The photographs demonstrate wide nasal bones, inverted and concave upper-level cartilages in the midportion of the nose and a residual dorsal hump. A closed revision rhinoplasty can accomplish narrowing the nasal bones with osteotomies, insertion of cartilage spreader grafts to widen the upper lateral cartilages  which will improve the dorsal aesthetic lines. The dorsal hump can be shaved down as well. Revision rhinoplasty is a very complicated surgery, so it's important  to choose your su...
What do I need? Chin lipo, jaw filler or implant?
What do I need, chin liposuction or chin implant?
Jul 10, 2020
The  side profile photographs demonstrate fat deposits in the neck and recessive chin profile. Liposuction can remove the fatty deposits in your neck, and chin implant can be inserted to augment the chin forward for better facial bones and proportions in addition to better  structural support for the soft tissues in the neck. Both procedures can be performed together under local or general anesthesia.

I'm 52 years old with a saggy neck.
Jul 10, 2020
 The photographs of your neck demonstrate three issues that will need to be addressed with a lower base and lift procedure. These include that posits above and below the platysma muscle in the neck, platysma muscle cords, and significant loose and inelastic skin in the neck. Any type of liposuction performed in the neck will only make the skintone worse by deflating the neck.
