Rhinoplasty in San Diego: Is It For Me?
Patients may seek rhinoplasty surgery due to various reasons ranging from aesthetic concerns to impaired nasal function. As a highly experienced San Diego / La Jolla rhinoplasty specialist, Dr. Kincaid customizes each procedure to reflect the needs and desires of each patient and to deliver outstanding surgical results. Some of the aesthetic and functional problems Dr. Kincaid corrects more often include:
- Nasal asymmetry due to injury
- Prominent nasal hump
- Large nostrils
- Enlarged / thickened nasal tip
- Nose that is too large / small in relation to the face
- Deviated septum affecting breathing
Preparing for Rhinoplasty Surgery in San Diego
Recognizing that each individual has different aesthetic needs and desires, Dr. Kincaid personally meets with all patients prior to performing rhinoplasty procedure. During pre-surgical consultations, Dr. Kincaid learns about each patient's aesthetic dreams and aspirations, as well as evaluates his or her overall health and nasal structure. Dr. Kincaid uses this information to develop a highly individualized treatment plan geared towards creating a proportionate, beautiful nasal appearance.
During pre-surgical appointments, Dr. Kincaid also explains the precautions rhinoplasty San Diego / La Jolla patients should take prior to undergoing this procedure. For example, those individuals who smoke should quit at least one month before rhinoplasty treatment. Smoking cessation is very important as nicotine decreases oxygen supply in the blood, which can negatively affect the healing process. Patients should not smoke and should avoid heavy second-hand smoke for at least a month after their procedures in order to promote speedy, comfortable recovery. In addition to discussing smoking cessation, Dr. Kincaid also carefully reviews the list of medications and supplements each patient is taking. Because some prescription medications, over -the-counter pain relievers and herbal supplements can cause excessive bleeding, he might recommend that patients stop using them before undergoing rhinoplasty in San Diego.

During rhinoplasty surgery, Dr. Kincaid creates a small incision that allows him to access nasal cartilage and bone. Depending on the individual characteristics of each patient, Dr. Kincaid might recommend and perform either the closed form of rhinoplasty or open rhinoplasty. The closed rhinoplasty is typically used for less extensive nose reshaping. When performing this procedure, Dr. Kincaid creates incisions within the nose. However, for San Diego / La Jolla nose surgery patients in need of a more comprehensive nasal recontouring, he usually recommends the open rhinoplasty. During this procedure, the incision is located in the strip of skin separating the nostrils. This method allows Dr. Kincaid to better see the nasal anatomy and perform a more thorough nose reshaping.
This patient had rhinoplasty, facelift, brow lift, neck lift and eyelid surgery
