Learn more about how rhinoplasty works
We perform nose surgeries in Northern California while the patient is under sedation, such as general anesthesia, most often as outpatient procedures. We offer different surgical methods depending on your concerns and problems. Dr. Canales and Dr. Furnas perform rhinoplasty using either an open or closed (endonasal) approach.
The objective during the procedure is to decrease or eliminate excess bone, cartilage, and tissue or to build and increase cartilage if necessary for reconstruction. The nasal features are repositioned, and the skin is draped over the newly structured framework. Stitches are positioned either on the inside portion of the nose or within the natural external fold.
Open vs closed rhinoplasty
Our skilled surgeons use open or closed rhinoplasty techniques. During consultations, we discuss all options available so patients understand exactly why one approach may work better for them over the other.
In open rhinoplasty, we create an incision along the width of the columella and lift the skin. This gives us better visibility for more precision when we need easier access to the surgery site. Generally, we use open rhinoplasty for cosmetic nose surgeries which require more significant reshaping or when we perform revision rhinoplasty.
Closed rhinoplasty is less invasive, meaning reduced healing times and less post-procedure swelling. Incisions are made within the nostril, eliminating the risk of visible scarring. Closed rhinoplasty is the ideal choice for those who are seeking minor reshaping of the nasal tip.
The best ethnic rhinoplasty in Northern California
Ethnic rhinoplasty alters the nose while still keeping your cultural identity. This is often a concern if you are Black, Asian, or Middle Eastern. Everyone is entitled to feel comfortable with their appearance and no one should have to compromise who they are to achieve that ideal.
The expert plastic surgeons performing rhinoplasty near you at Plastic Surgery Associates have spent years perfecting the craft of ethnic rhinoplasty. Not only are they knowledgeable about the unique ethnic features common to a variety of noses, they know to take special care when making incisions. Darker skin tones can be more prone to scarring, so we take the utmost care with incision and post-operative care placement.
In your consultation with Dr. Canales or Dr. Furnas, you can talk about what you want to keep and what you want to change. This will enable them to personalize your treatment plan to give you your best results.
