Nose Reduction and Reshaping
If you would like to improve your appearance by altering the shape and/or size of your nose, you need to consult Dr. Michael Eisemann, a Triple Board Certified Plastic Surgeon in Houston. One of his Board Certifications is Otolaryngology (Ear, Nose, and Throat) which makes him uniquely qualified to perform nasal surgery, both functionally (Septoplasty) and cosmetically (Rhinoplasty).
At the Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center in Houston, Dr. Eisemann offers more than 20 years of experience in Nasal surgery as well as many other facial procedures that can be combined with the Rhinoplasty surgery. Many patients also choose to augment their chin with either a Chin Implant or by having a bone advancement procedure (Osseous Genioplasty) to add more balance to their face.
Before choosing to undergo Rhinoplasty surgery, Dr. Eisemann will evaluate your facial structure. Ideal candidates for this surgery must have developed mature nasal structures, good health (physically and psychologically), and have realistic goals and expectations. In girls the nose is fully mature at 14 to 15 years of age, and in boys at 16 to 17. At these ages it is safe and appropriate for young adolescents to have Rhinoplasty.
Dr. Eisemann was recently featured on the BestDocs Network for his experience in Rhinoplasty surgery.
Nose surgery is one of the cosmetic procedures that can most greatly improve your overall appearance. It is appropriate for adults, as well as teens, as long as they are about 16 years old and their facial growth is complete. Our patients choose rhinoplasty in Houston for their own personal reasons that often include:
- Enhancing the size or shape of the nose
- Repairing damage caused by an injury
- Improving or restoring breathing
- Complementing another facial sculpting procedures, such as eyelid surgery or a face lift.
The procedure takes about 1 to 2 hours, although more complicated procedures can take longer to complete. Most incisions are concealed inside the nose or along its natural creases, eventually leaving no noticeable evidence of the surgery.
One of the most common requests for Rhinoplasty is the reduction of certain or all parts of the nose. After having Rhinoplasty patients experience an overall feeling of improved self-confidence and self esteem.
Secondary or Revision Rhinoplasty in Houston
For individuals who have undergone a rhinoplasty procedure, but are unsatisfied or upset with the results, revision rhinoplasty in Houston is the most viable option for restoring beauty to the face. A revision rhinoplasty procedure involves resculpting the nose tissue to better fit the facial features. In the case of a less than desirable rhinoplasty, the patient may feel that their nose looks “weird” or different on their face, and this can lead to low self-esteem and even depression. However, Dr. Eisemann’s expertise as a Houston revision rhinoplasty surgeon allows patients to look as beautiful as they had originally hoped to in most cases.
At your cosmetic consultation Dr. Eisemann will perform a comprehensive examination of your nose to determine if you have any functional airway problems. He will also take photographs of your face with the latest technology. Video imaging will show you a morphed image of what you will generally look like after surgery. Rhinoplasty not only improves the appearance of your nose for cosmetic reasons but can improve function as well. Dr. Eisemann can decrease or increase the size of the nose, remove dorsal humps, improve nasal tip projection, lengthen or shorten the nose, utilize cartilage grafts for support and definition, reduce thick sides of the nasal walls. In many instances the functional portion of the surgery may be covered by insurance
Dr. Eisemann is triple board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS), the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (ABFPRS), and the American Board of Otolaryngology (ABOto). He also lectures, publishes articles, and educates residents on various aspects of plastic surgery.
