Your appearance is important to you. If you’ve made the decision to have facial plastic surgery, you need to select a surgeon who is an accomplished and respected artist in the field. At Marcus Medical, our founder, Dr. Keith Marcus, is Board Certified in both Otolaryngology (Head and Neck Surgery) and Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.
Your nose is one of most defining characteristics on your face. Unfortunately, many people are unhappy with the noses they were born with. Some patients feel that aging has altered the appearance of the nose. In some cases, an injury may have impacted its look or function. Rhinoplasty, commonly known as a nose job, can greatly improve a person’s appearance, self-esteem or resolve breathing issues. A consultation with Dr. Marcus will evaluate your condition to determine whether a Long Beach rhinoplasty is the best procedure for you. When you and the doctor make a joint decision to proceed, photographs of your face will be used to determine the most attractive shape, size, and placement.
The doctor will explain how nasal structures (such as bone and cartilage) can be surgically sculpted to reshape your nose. The word “rhinoplasty” literally means “shaping the nose.” In the procedure, incisions are made so that our surgeon can remove, add to, or rearrange bone and cartilage in the nose to create a newly-shaped underlying structure. Tissues are then draped over this structure and incisions are closed. Then, a splint is applied to the outside of the nose to help it retain the new shape while healing. A successful facial plastic surgery involves having realistic expectations about the outcome. This starts with excellent rapport between doctor and patient.
Dr. Marcus has performed many, many rhinoplasty procedures, and always sets aside enough time to completely answer every question and concern. Based on your vision about how you want your face and nose to appear, a custom treatment plan will be created to improve the aesthetics of your nose and bring balance and harmony to your unique facial structure. Your age, skin type, and ethnic background are all considered when planning a rhinoplasty procedure. Before making a decision about a rhinoplasty in Long Beach, Dr. Marcus can discuss any additional surgeries (such as a facelift) you may want performed in conjunction with rhinoplasty.
