Patient: 504 Rhinoplasty
This 34-year-old man came to the office of Dr. David Sayah for nose and eyelid surgery. The patient felt his nose was too large and complained that a deviated septum caused him trouble breathing. He also hoped that during the surgery on his nose he could correct the heaviness in his upper eyelids and the glabellar frown lines between his eyes.
During his consultation, Dr. Sayah asked the patient to describe what his idea of a perfect nose would look like. The patient explained that he wanted a smaller and more refined nose. He felt that the frown lines aged him and the large nose drew attention to the heaviness of his brow and eyelids. Dr. Sayah suggested a rhinoplasty to reshape his nose a Blepharoplasty to remove the loose skin from his upper eyelids.
The challenge was to reduce the size of the patient's nose while still maintaining its masculine look. Dr. Sayah was careful to remove only the necessary amount of tissue and cartilage from the nose to give it a natural balance on the young man's face. The excess skin on the eyelids was also removed to create a younger more vibrant look. The patient is very happy with the results of his surgeries.
