Rhinoplasty surgery also known as nose surgery is the most common procedure for African Americans today. Some patients are dissatisfied with the noses they were born with or with the way that aging has changed their nose. Other patients may be seeking an improvement in breathing or correction of an injury which has distorted the nose.
Regardless of the reason, nothing has greater impact on how a person looks than the size and shape of their nose. As the most defining characteristic of the face, even the slightest of alterations to the nose can greatly improve one’s appearance.
Dr. DeJoseph specializes in refining the nose so that it better flatters your face while keeping the feature looking natural to your ethnic background. Typically noses of African descent are wider and more flat looking. At Premier image we want to give you the look you desire by refining the nose and the tip to even out, “humps,” and make your nostrils narrower.
The nose can be surgically improved in a number of ways by reducing or increasing the overall size, removing an unwanted hump, changing the shape of the tip or the bridge, narrowing the width of the nostrils, or changing the angle between the nose and upper lip. Rhinoplasty can improve the balance between the nose and other facial features. At Premier Image, we take great pride in achieving a natural rhinoplasty result without that tell-tale “surgical” look.
If you’re considering rhinoplasty, you’ll want to know how the surgery is performed and how it can improve your looks, self-confidence, or health. During a consultation, Dr. DeJoseph can provide answers to many of the questions you may have.
Good rapport between the patient and surgeon is essential to a successful facial plastic surgery outcome. It is during the consulting stages prior to surgery that trust, based on realistic expectations and exacting medical expertise, develops. Dr. DeJoseph is an expert double-board certified facial plastic & reconstructive surgeons and can answer specific questions about your specific needs and concerns.
It is also critical that the patient understand nasal surgery. Because there is no ideal in nasal surgery, Dr DeJoseph strives to improve the nose aesthetically while also creating better harmony with the other facial features.
