During his notable surgical career, leading San Diego plastic surgery specialist, Dr. Kincaid, has performed numerous nose surgery procedures that have helped his patients improve both their appearance and self-confidence. Please read on to learn more about the aesthetic issues nose surgery helps correct and about the rhinoplasty techniques employed by Dr. Kincaid.
Rhinoplasty in San Diego: Am I a Candidate?
Rhinoplasty is a sophisticated plastic surgery procedure used to reshape the nose. The goal of this treatment is to bring the nose in better harmony with the rest of the facial features, such as the chin and the cheeks. While San Diego rhinoplasty patients pursue this procedure due to various medical and cosmetic reasons, some of the aesthetic issues Dr. Kincaid addresses more often include:
- Correct a deviated septum
- Reshape the tip of the nose
- Narrow the nostrils
- Change the distance between the nose and the upper lip
- Alter the size and/or shape of the nasal bridge
- Remove a prominent nasal hump
Rhinoplasty: Open and Closed
Depending on the unique cosmetic needs and desires of each patient, Dr. Kincaid selects the most appropriate surgical techniques to be used during rhinoplasty surgery. He has extensive experience performing both the open and the closed forms of rhinoplasty. He usually recommends the closed rhinoplasty for San Diego nose surgery patients in need of a relatively minor nose reshaping. For individuals who desire a pronounced change of their nasal appearance, Dr. Kincaid typically recommends and performs the open rhinoplasty. During this procedure, the incision is placed in between the nostrils, allowing Dr. Kincaid to thoroughly alter the alignment of the nasal structures. While the open rhinoplasty is a more comprehensive surgery, the incisions are well hidden in the natural creases of the skin and become virtually unnoticeable once the patient has fully recovered.
Nose Surgery: Important Considerations
While rhinoplasty can greatly enhance one's appearance and self-esteem, this surgery cannot change one's life. This is why Dr. Kincaid recommends that only individuals with a healthy self-esteem and realistic expectations undergo nose surgery in San Diego / La Jolla. For these patients, rhinoplasty can deliver highly rewarding results as it can enhance the overall appearance of the face, making it more aesthetically pleasing. To help patients understand how they will look and feel after rhinoplasty surgery, Dr. Kincaid conducts thorough pre-surgical consultations, during which time he discusses not only the physiological but also the psychological aspects of nose surgery.
