Candidates for Rhinoplasty

Dr. Richard Arabitg,MD - Saturday, March 28, 2015

Rhinoplasty, also popularly referred to as a nose job, is a procedure performed by a plastic surgeon to correct and reconstruct the shape and physical appearance of the nose, as well as to correct the anatomy and structures of the nose, and restore function lost due to respiratory impediments, such as a deviated septum. Although in the past cosmetic surgery was seen as taboo or expensive, it is now widely accepted as a popular method to improve appearance at a reasonable cost. A nose job can fix physical deformities due to physical trauma, congenital defects, or even a previously unsuccessful plastic surgery procedure. The two main types of nose jobs are closed rhinoplasty and open rhinoplasty; the best procedure for you can be determined by a qualified plastic surgeon, otolaryngologist (ear, nose, and throat doctor or ENT), or maxillofacial surgeon. 

 

During surgery, the nasal skin and soft tissue is removed, and a more aesthetically pleasing and functional nose is created. The incisions are then sutured, and a stent or package is applied to prevent movement and improper healing. A non-surgical method of performing a nose job involves injection of facial fillers to correct or modify slight defects. To determine whether or not someone is a candidate for rhinoplasty, a surgeon will evaluate their medical history, including their physical and psychological health history. Additionally, the surgeon will ask about their symptoms in the case of a nose job to restore function, past surgeries, drug use, and any allergies they may have. Psychological health history is important because it allows an Orlando plastic surgeon to know if a patient will respond and adjust well to their procedure.

Breast Lift Surgery

Dr. Richard Arabitg,MD - Thursday, February 26, 2015

If you are considering having a breast lift procedure done, be sure to consult with an Orlando cosmetic surgeon. You will want to ensure that your desired goal is clearly explained to your surgeon. During this initial consultation, all of your previous health information, as well as other important background history, is collected. Between your previous history and your desired goals, your plastic surgeon will explain to you how he/she will help you reach satisfaction.  He/she should also explicitly explain what will happen during the breast lift procedure. It is important that you are educated and very comfortable with the whole process.

 

The breast lift procedure itself is fairly quick—it typically only takes about three hours to perform. Breast lifts are performed either in a hospital, an outpatient surgery center, or a doctor’s personal operating room. During the breast lift surgery, the plastic surgeon will reposition the nipple to a higher location. In order to do so, the surgeon marks the appropriate location beforehand. The doctor will make an incision in one of three areas: around the areola, around the areola and vertically down to the breast crease, or around the areola, down the breast crease, and horizontally along the breast crease. The type of incision made is determined by the results you desire. After the incision, the breast tissue is lifted, the nipple and areola are repositioned, and any excess skin is removed.

 

Once the procedure is finished, your plastic surgeon will close your incision and proceed with post-operation care. The size of the scar from the incision truly varies from person to person. During your initial consultation with your surgeon, they will recommend the incisions that best fit your anatomy. Some of the incision lines from the breast lift will be hidden naturally by the shape of your breasts, but others may still be visible. All of this will be discussed with you beforehand to ensure you are pleased with the results.
