Rhinoplasty Surgery

Whenever you try and draw a portrait, the most difficult part is the nose. This is because even a small imperfection can change the entire look of a face. A chiselled, straight nose not only adds to beauty, it also transforms the symmetry of the face. If you look in the mirror and feel as if your mis-aligned nose is taking away the charm from your face- then a rhinoplasty is the perfect solution.

An experienced cosmetic and plastic surgeon like Dr. Vivek Kumar has the expertise of a surgeon and the skill of an artist, to shape and align the nose in perfect sync with the rest of the face. This nose reshaping or nose-job is called Rhinoplasty surgery and it aims to provide functional as well as aesthetic results.

  • Closed rhinoplasty: This is known as ‘scarless rhinoplasty’, as all the incisions are under the skin. It is a complex procedure but offers quicker healing time.
  • Open rhinoplasty: This method provides the maximum accuracy in repositioning and reconstruction, allowing for the best aesthetics and functional results. The small scar also fades over time.
