Before and After Nasal Surgery
Shown here are before (left) and after (right) views of actual patients. Remember, every patient responds differently to surgery, and no one can be certain that he or she will get the results shown. However, these photos will illustrate the changes that are possible with these procedures. Click on the images to view them in a larger window.
RHINOPLASTY (NASAL SURGERY) Rhinoplasty is performed to establish a better balance between the nose and the rest of the face. Changes may be subtle or dramatic, and even slight changes can greatly enhance appearance. While nasal surgery can be combined with other procedures, it is frequently combined with chin or cheek augmentation.
Dr. Sclafani is frequently asked to correct other surgeons’ work. Often, he is called on to correct both the appearance of the nose as well as its function.
A well performed rhinoplasty should integrate the nose optimally into the facial appearance. Dr. Sclafani makes a point of respecting the patients’ aesthetic goals and his results are tailored to the individual patient.
Correction of congenital nasal deformities is a challenging field, but with proper analysis and technique, excellent results are possible.
