Dr Tavakoli's Philosophy on Rhinoplasty
The trend in rhinoplasty surgery is all about the “natural” look away from the 80′s “operated look” seen in so many Hollywood stars. Surgery of the nose is one of the most common of all plastic and cosmetic surgery procedures. The best candidates for a rhinoplasty are those people who are looking for an improvement in the way they look, not those searching for perfection. Rhinoplasty can be performed on its own, or commonly combined with breast augmentation in younger patients or Facelift/eyelift surgery in more mature patients.
Dr Tavakoli is a Renowned Specialist Plastic Surgeon with an interest in Rhinoplasty for cosmetic and functional purposes. He has performed around 750 cosmetic Rhinoplasty cases. Dr Tavakoli performs both cosmetic Rhinoplasty and also functional Septoplasty and Turbinoplasty for breathing problems.
The ideal age for Rhinoplasty is between 20-40. Between the ages of 16-20 the surgeon needs to make an assessment based on physical and psychological maturity. After the age of 40 the Rhinoplasty surgeon needs to take the patients skin quality into account as the cosmetic result can be affected by excess nasal tip swelling especially if the patient has very thick, oily and sebaceous skin.
Rhinoplasty / Nose Surgery: Modern Approach
Rhinoplasty: (Greek: Rhinos, “Nose” + Plassein, “to shape”) or “nose job” is cosmetic surgery of the nose and one of the most common of all plastic surgery operations. In fact Rhinoplasty is amongst the first cosmetic plastic surgery operations ever performed way back in 1898.
The current Australian trend in Rhinoplasty is all about the “natural” look and NOT the upturned and “pixie” look of the 1980s. However, if you wish for a cute or Hollywood or “sculpted” nose, please discuss your desires clearly with Dr Tavakoli at the time of your nose surgery consultation.
Rhinoplasty / Nose Job Surgery
1. Remove the hump or the bump over the bridge of the nose.
2. Improve the crooked nose by re-aligning the nasal bones. Improve the angle between the nose and the upper lip.
3. Shorten or lengthen the length of the nose.
4. Increase or decrease nasal tip projection.
5. Narrow the nostrils if required. Straighten the deviated septum hence improving breathing.
6. Reduce the bulk of air filters (turbinates) hence improving breathing even further.
Septoplasty & Turbinoplasty
Straighten the deviated septum hence improving breathing. Reduce the bulk of air
filters (turbinates) hence improving breathing even further.
