 Rhinoplasty Plastic Surgery (Nose)

closed eyesRhinoplasty ranks among the top five most sought-after cosmetic surgery procedures in the US. The procedure is primarily used for aesthetic enhancement, but sometimes functional concerns such as breathing problems can also be addressed. Leading plastic surgeon Dr. Hisham Seify provides rhinoplasty to his patients in Newport Beach, Orange County, CA, and surrounding communities.

Types of Rhinoplasty

The following are the common types of rhinoplasty plastic surgery procedures:

Reduction Rhinoplasty

This is one of the most popular types of nose surgery, which is designed to make the nose more proportionate to other facial features. It usually involves sharpening of the nasal tip, removal of bumps on the nasal bridge and reduction of flared nostrils. The procedure is also commonly performed on ethnic patients who are keen to have a more proportionately sized nose.

Augmentation Rhinoplasty

Patients with a smaller or undermined nose may choose augmentation rhinoplasty. The procedure will typically involve tissue or bone grafting to build up the nasal bridge or nasal tip. Cartilage from the patient’s nasal septum may be used for the grafting. Synthetic implants or rib bone may also be used in some cases.

Post-Traumatic Rhinoplasty

Following an injury to the nose, the patient may need post-traumatic rhinoplasty to restore both functionality and appearance of the nose. Nasal septum may need straightening, and in case of a broken nose, the surgeon may have to re-fracture and re-set the nose to provide natural looking results.

Reconstructive Rhinoplasty

If the patient has lost the nose partially or fully due to skin cancer, accident or another disease, reconstructive rhinoplasty may be performed to rebuild the nose. Flap techniques, skin grafting and other advanced procedures may be applied to create the best results. Dr. Seify is a leading cosmetic surgeon performing this complex procedure and other types of rhinoplasty for patients in Newport Beach, Orange County, CA, and nearby areas.

Ethnic Rhinoplasty

Ethnic nose surgery may be performed on candidates from African American, Asian, Middle Eastern, or Hispanic descent. Ethnic candidates may have peculiarities in terms of nasal shape, size and contours. Many patients are keen to achieve a more attractive nose without compromising their essential ethnic integrity of the face. A skillful surgeon with experience in ethnic rhinoplasty can perform these procedures with highly desirable results.

Rhinoplasty Costs

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average cost of rhinoplasty in the US in 2014 was $4,694. However, the ASPS clarified that this figure did not cover the costs of anesthesia, operating room, and related expenses such as prescription drugs, medical tests, surgical accessories, and post-op visits to the surgeon’s office.

The overall costs of rhinoplasty can range anywhere from $6,000 to $15,000, depending on a number of factors. If rhinoplasty is a medical necessity to correct breathing problems or such other issues, full or partial costs may be covered by insurance. Most patients will also have the option to get the procedure financed through professional medical finance firms or other sources.

Recovery

It will usually take about one to two weeks for the patient to resume their regular activities or return to the workplace. Mild swelling will take a longer time to subside, and the results will continue to firm up over several months.

Facelift Plastic Surgery 

Facelift Plastic Surgery Types of Lifts, Cost, Recovery Newport Beach | Orange CountyRhytidectomy, commonly known as facelift, is a cosmetic surgery procedure to reduce the facial signs of aging and enhancing the overall contours of the face and jaw. Subtle or dramatic results can be achieved with this procedure, as per the aesthetic needs of the patient.

Facelift Before & After Gallery

Dr. Hisham Seify is a board certified plastic surgeon providing facelift and various other procedures for the breast, body and face. Patients in Newport Beach, Orange County, CA, and surrounding communities have an opportunity to receive facelift surgery from Dr. Seify.

Suitable Candidates

Healthy adults who are unhappy with the appearance of wrinkles and lines on the face may consider facelift plastic surgery. Ideally, the candidate should have some amount of skin elasticity and suppleness to achieve optimal facial contours. The underlying bone structure should be strong and well-defined to support and contribute to successful results.

Types of Facelift

Facelift surgery can be categorized according to the type of technique used to perform the procedure:

Endoscopic Facelift

This is an advanced technique involving smaller incisions through which the surgeon will insert a tiny endoscope or microscopic camera. Once the surgeon has a clear view of the underlying facial structure on a monitor, it is possible to remove excess skin and redistribute fat in a more precise manner and restore a younger looking face.

Cutaneous Facelift

This is an old technique, which is limited only to the surgical removal of loose skin. It involves a longer incision along the hairline through which the surgeon will remove excess skin and re-drape the tightened skin smoothly. The underlying muscular structure is not affected with this procedure.

SMAS Facelift

This is a more popular, comprehensive facelift procedure that involves lifting and tightening of the underlying muscle structure to enhance facial contours. Excess skin will also be removed, and results can be more natural looking and substantive compared to older facelift techniques.

S-Lift

The procedure involves an S-shaped incision in front of the ears. The incisions are smaller as compared to a traditional facelift, leading to reduced risk, and shorter recovery period. Jaw and lower face are ideally treated with this technique.

Deep Plane Lift

If the patient needs a focused treatment in the mid face area, including prominent nasolabial folds, a deep plane lift may be used. The technique involves lifting of the entire facial structure as a single unit.

Facelift and Your Wallet

The cost of facelift surgery can vary from one patient to another or one practice to another, depending on several factors. As an experienced cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Seify will discuss all aspects, including costs, during initial consultation with his patients in Newport Beach, Orange County, CA, and nearby areas. The average cost in the US for facelift surgery is about $6,000, but excluding the costs of anesthesia, surgical facility costs, and related expenses.

Recovery and Results

Most patients can go back to work or resume their normal activities at home in about 10 to 14 days. Vigorous exercises should be avoided for about one month. Results will continue to establish over several months as swelling subsides gradually. On average, a facelift surgery can take five to 10 years off the patient’s face.
