Ethnic Rhinoplasty in Harford County, MD
Dr. Ira D. Papel offers ethnic rhinoplasty to the female and male residents of Harford County, MD.
What is an Ethnic Rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty is plastic surgery designed to change the shape and size of the nose to make it more attractive. Ethnic rhinoplasty also considers the cultural background of a patient when making changes or repairs to the nose. Dr. Papel understands how to make repairs to a nose with a deviated septum or poorly formed sinus structure to improve breathing and reduce sinus infections. Individuals with a trauma injury or congenital defect can also visit our facility.
What are the Benefits of Ethnic Rhinoplasty?
Many individuals are unhappy with the appearance of their nose because it has a slightly crooked nasal bridge or unsightly bump. While some patients require an extensive rhinoplasty procedure, most only need to have slight changes to improve the way they look. An ethnic rhinoplasty can improve the way someone breathes to avoid snoring at night along or sleep apnea. Repairs to the internal structures of a nose can help patients avoid frequent sinus congestion. These changes can be made without taking away the patient’s own unique cultural identity.
How is Ethnic Rhinoplasty Performed?
Dr. Papel uses three-dimensional imaging to see a patient’s facial structure and determine if the requested changes to the nose are possible. He consults with patients to determine the types of changes they want to their nose. Patients can view before and after photographs to understand how subtle changes to the nose can affect the face’s appearance. Surgery is performed under general anesthesia to avoid discomfort from tiny incisions made to remove tissue inside the nose.
