What is Preservation Rhinoplasty?

Preservation rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure designed to preserve the natural structures of the nose while enhancing its appearance. Unlike traditional rhinoplasty, which involves removing cartilage and bone from the nose, preservation rhinoplasty focuses on reshaping the existing structures to achieve a more aesthetically pleasing result.

During a preservation rhinoplasty procedure, Dr. Chasan will carefully manipulate the cartilage and bone of the nose to achieve the desired shape and size. This may involve adding or removing small amounts of tissue or reshaping the existing structures to create a more harmonious appearance.

Benefits of Preservation Rhinoplasty

One of the procedure’s most significant benefits is that it is minimally invasive and uses small incisions inside the nostrils or along the nose's natural creases. This means that there is little to no visible scarring after the surgery. Unlike traditional rhinoplasty, which often requires an external incision, preservation rhinoplasty leaves no visible scars, making it an ideal choice for those concerned about scarring.

Because preservation rhinoplasty is a less invasive procedure, it typically results in a faster recovery than traditional rhinoplasty. Most patients can return to work and other activities within a week or two after the surgery. Additionally, because there is less trauma to the nose during preservation rhinoplasty, there is less swelling and bruising, which can further speed up the recovery process.

Other benefits of preservation rhinoplasty include:

  • More natural-looking results
  • Reduced risk of complications
  • Improved breathing
  • Fewer post-operative visits to your surgeon

Preservation Rhinoplasty Vs. Traditional Rhinoplasty

Preserving the Bridge

Preservation rhinoplasty focuses on preserving the natural shape and structure of the nose, particularly the bridge. This approach involves making small, precise incisions and carefully reshaping the nasal bones to maintain the natural contour of the nose. In contrast, traditional rhinoplasty often involves breaking and resetting the nasal bones, which can result in a more dramatic change to the shape of the nose.

Preserving Nasal Soft Tissue

Another critical difference between preservation and traditional rhinoplasty is the approach to preserving nasal soft tissue. Preservation rhinoplasty focuses on keeping as much of the natural soft tissue as possible, which can help maintain the natural shape and contour of the nose. Traditional rhinoplasty often involves removing and reshaping nasal soft tissue, which can dramatically change the nose's appearance.

Preserving the Alar Cartilage

Preservation rhinoplasty also strongly emphasizes preserving the alar cartilages, which are the cartilages that form the lower part of the nose. These cartilages play an essential role in maintaining the shape and support of the nose, and preserving them can help keep the natural appearance of the nose. In contrast, traditional rhinoplasty often involves removing or reshaping the alar cartilage, which can result in a more significant change to the shape of the nose.

Am I a Good Candidate
For Revision Rhinoplasty?

When determining whether you are a good candidate for the procedure, here are some factors to consider:

Healing time: It is essential to wait at least a year after your initial rhinoplasty to allow for proper healing before considering revision surgery.

Realistic expectations: Revision rhinoplasty can improve the appearance of your nose, but it may not be able to achieve perfection. It is important to have realistic expectations and understand the procedure's limitations.

Overall health: You should be in good general health before surgery. If you have any medical conditions or take any medications, you should discuss them with your surgeon to ensure they will not interfere with the procedure.

Emotional stability: Revision rhinoplasty can be emotionally challenging, as it involves revisiting a previous surgery and potentially facing disappointment if the results are not what you hoped for. It is important to be emotionally stable and prepared for the process.

Clear goals: Having clear goals for your revision rhinoplasty is essential. You should be able to articulate what you hope to achieve with the procedure and understand what is possible.

If you meet these candidacy factors and are considering revision rhinoplasty, it’s time to schedule a consultation with Dr. Chasan. During this appointment, he will examine your nose and facial structure and review your medical history. With this information, Dr. Chasan will determine the best path toward providing beautiful results and achieving your aesthetic goals.

Preservation Rhinoplasty Procedure

Before the surgery, Dr. Chasan will give you specific instructions on how to prepare for the surgery, including avoiding certain medications and stopping smoking. Follow these instructions carefully to ensure a successful surgery.

During the surgery, you will be given anesthesia to ensure that you are comfortable and pain-free. Dr. Chasan will make incisions inside your nose, allowing him to access your nose's bone and cartilage structure.

Dr. Chasan will reshape and reposition the bone and cartilage using specialized surgical instruments to achieve the desired aesthetic result. This technique ensures that the natural structure of your nose is preserved, which can result in a quicker and easier recovery.
