Rhinoplasty surgeries are performed at our facility on an outpatient basis. The majority of procedures that our specialist performs enhance the aesthetic qualities of the nose while improving breathing. By skillfully removing and reshaping excess bone and cartilage within the nose, Dr. Keyes brings out the attractive features from within. Often, cartilage grafts are placed within the nose and secured to the existing anatomy. This new support allows for an improvement in appearance. Because Dr. Keyes prefers to perform a closed rhinoplasty, meaning the surgery is performed from within the nostrils instead of from the exterior of the nose, there are no external scars, a feature that many patients appreciate.
Nasal surgery to correct deviation to the internal partition of the nose, as the result of an injury or congenital development, provides relief of nasal obstruction. This facial plastic surgery procedure is commonly known as a septoplasty. While a rhinoplasty is performed for cosmetic improvement of the nose, a septoplasty is carried out to improve its functionality. Not only can a deviated septum hinder your ability to smell or breathe comfortably, it can affect the aesthetic appearance of your nose. A nose that has a deviated septum may appear crooked, humped, or even twisted. In some cases, the tip of the nose can curve or droop below the opening of the nostrils or appear rounded and swollen.
Tiplasty is a cosmetic procedure that alters the cartilage of the nasal tip. Reshaping the tip of your nose can help achieve a more pleasing profile and provide better balance to the face. For a more attractive shape and contour, cartilage can be harvested from the nasal septum and sometimes from your ear to add definition to the nasal tip. For instance, placing additional cartilage within the nasal tip can refine its appearance and provide a change in its projection. To achieve the desired results, cartilage may be removed and redistributed to the underlying framework of your nose for a more contoured, softer, and refined look.
Also referred to as secondary rhinoplasty, revision rhinoplasty is a form of nasal surgery that is used to correct and resolve an unsatisfactory result or persistent problems that develop following previous rhinoplasty surgery. Revision surgery requires methodical planning, analytics, and superior surgical skills, which are all qualities the dynamic facial plastic surgery specialist at our Los Angeles center in Beverly Hills possesses. For several decades, Dr. Keyes has been correcting the effects of previous surgeries, which were performed by other doctors. With a primary focus on rhinoplasty, Dr. Keyes has been able to restore thousands of patients’ ability to breathe and re-establish balance, symmetry, and beauty to patients’ faces for a renewed sense of confidence and elevated self-esteem.
