Whether you’re unhappy with the natural shape and projection of your nose, or you’ve suffered an accident which has left your nose misshapen, Dr Lisa Friederich can help you to refine the appearance of your nose.
Also often referred to as a ‘nose job’, rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure to reshape the nose. As one of the most defining features of your face, even a slight alteration to your nose’s projection or shape can provide an amazing outcome. Or, if you’ve suffered an injury which has left you with breathing difficulties, this surgery can return the function you once took for granted. Dr Lisa Friederich approaches each rhinoplasty with compassion and objectivity, helping you to achieve the outcome your desire and deserve.
Your rhinoplasty procedure
There is a range of reasons you may be considering rhinoplasty. These include cosmetic concerns, a nasal fracture, or a deviation of the septum, either through an injury or naturally-occurring from birth. All of these concerns may be easily addressed through rhinoplasty.
Concerns which may be addressed through nose surgery include:
- Refine the proportions of the nose
- Re-align a crooked nose
- Reduce a ‘hump’ on the bridge of the nose
- Increase the height of the bridge of the nose
- Refine or lift the top of the nose
Prior to your rhinoplasty procedure, Dr Lisa Friederich will consult extensively with you to allow her to fully understand your concerns and goals. Detailed examinations will be conducted, and Dr Lisa will discuss your options, ensuring you feel confident and comfortable with the procedure, and have a realistic expectation of its projected outcome.
Depending on your unique circumstances and goals, your rhinoplasty may be approached in different ways. Regardless of the approach, Dr Lisa Friederich will take care to ensure any scarring is kept to an absolute minimum, and hidden wherever it is possible. All of these factors will be discussed at length prior to your procedures taking place.
The time taken to complete your rhinoplasty surgery is dependent on your unique circumstances; Dr Lisa will be able to advise you of the approximate length of your surgery at your consultation.
