For people who’d like to have a smaller nose, reduction rhinoplasty reduces size or changes shape. This procedure involves cutting away excessive cartilage and bone then letting the natural skin envelope shrink down to the smaller framework.
Dr Barnouti’s main focus when performing this procedure is to create a smaller, natural-looking nose while maintaining good breathing capacity.
Its underlying cartilage and bony architecture produce the shape and size of your nose. Therefore, smaller noses can only be enlarged by the precise placement of grafts from your own tissue or implant materials such as silicone, Gortex or medpore. Our Asian clients most commonly request augmentation rhinoplasty and our focus is on creating a natural-looking nose.
Reshaping can address a wide range of issues and may focus on the shape of the tip, the bridge, or the root of the nose.
Depending on the exact issue and shape modification required, reshaping rhinoplasty can be addressed through simple non-invasive techniques. However, in some cases, a surgical procedure may be required.
Combined Rhinoplasty/Septoplasty/Turbinate reduction
Also known as Septorhinoplasty with Turbinectomy, this procedure balances the shape of the nose and improves breathing ability.
During surgery, care will be made to ensure both the front and side views of your new nose are equally appealing while breathing functionality is improved.
Dr Barnouti will consider your facial proportions, skin thickness, cartilaginous rigidity and bony formations.
While working on the appearance of your nose, the nasal septum and turbinates may also need attention to improve breathing.
Dr Barnouti will advise you on the best approach for your individual needs during your initial consultation.
