The Latest in Rhinoplasty & Chin Implants with Philadelphia Plastic Surgeon Timothy Greco, MD
Randy Alvarez, host of The Wellness Hour, interviews Board Certified Plastic Surgeon Timothy M. Greco, MD about the latest advancements in rhinoplasty & chin implants.
Nasal aesthetic surgery is a procedure where form and function are of equal importance. The rhinoplasty procedure should provide the patient with a pleasing appearance and improved breathing. When his New Jersey and Philadelphia rhinoplasty patients complain of difficulty with breathing in addition to an obvious aesthetic deformity, Dr. Timothy Greco can make corrections during the cosmetic procedure to treat both issues. He often performs septoplasty, which straightens the nasal septum, internal and/or external nasal valve malfunction, and enlarged turbinates to correct nasal obstructions.
How Does Rhinoplasty Work?
Most nasal surgeries are performed by making small incisions in the nose and a small incision across the skin between the nostrils. This technique is known as an open rhinoplasty. At times the procedure may be performed without the incision between the nostrils (closed rhinoplasty). Sometimes it is necessary to make small incisions at the base of the nostrils to help narrow the nose.
What If I’m Not Happy With My Rhinoplasty Procedure?
If you’re not happy with the results of a rhinoplasty procedure performed previously, schedule a consultation with Dr. Greco about revision rhinoplasty. Because he’s double board certified in otolaryngology (ENT) and facial plastic surgery, he possesses a unique skill set to perform revision rhinoplasty. He may perform a rib-harvest technique to correct structural deformities. This technique significantly improves results for his patients with severely deformed noses secondary to previous surgery or trauma and who lack sufficient ear or septal cartilage that is necessary to provide structural support frequently needed in these types of noses.
