What is rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty, or a "nose job," is a surgical procedure to reshape or alter the structure of the nose for aesthetic or functional purposes, enhancing facial harmony and/or restoring healthy breathing. Dr. Liebertz has extensive training in advanced head and neck surgery. He performs rhinoplasty surgeries with meticulous attention to detail, promising results that are both functional and extremely aesthetically pleasing. 

What can rhinoplasty treat?

Rhinoplasty is most commonly performed for cosmetic reasons but may also be necessary for those with breathing issues, a broken nose, or who require nose reconstruction due to trauma or surgery. Dr. Liebertz is among the region's most talented nose surgeons, bringing artistry and the most advanced surgical techniques to every procedure.

Dr. Liebertz's approach: Refined nose reshaping surgery

Dr. Liebertz uses computer-generated images to assist patients in envisioning how changes to nose shape, size, or projection will affect facial appearance. Leveraging his specialized training, Dr. Liebertz excels at complex cases, including revision rhinoplasties and procedures addressing multiple issues. After obtaining his Doctor of Medicine from the top-tier Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, Dr. Liebertz dedicated a pivotal research year to understanding the immune response to head and neck cancer. He then honed his skills with a residency in Otolaryngology–Head & Neck Surgery at Wayne State University in Michigan. 

Dr. Liebertz was selected as one of just 46 surgeons globally for subspecialty fellowship training in Advanced Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at Emory University in Atlanta. This exclusive program, guided by luminaries in the field, including founders of the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, equipped Dr. Liebertz with unparalleled expertise in nose surgeries. His results in nose surgery are the result of his foundation of precision, dedication, and world-class training.

Are you a candidate for rhinoplasty?

If you're dissatisfied with the appearance or functionality of your nose, rhinoplasty could be your solution. Ideal candidates are healthy individuals with matured nasal structures, realistic expectations, and no contraindicating medical conditions.

It's also crucial for potential candidates to be non-smokers or willing to quit temporarily. 

Types of rhinoplasty surgeries at Liebertz Plastic Surgery at Yarrow Bay

Many plastic surgeons avoid performing rhinoplasty surgery altogether, as it is among the most complex surgical procedures and is prone to failure if the corrected nose structure is not correctly supported. Dr. Liebertz is a highly accomplished facial plastic surgeon who offers his patients superior results and the highest level of personalized care. The types of rhinoplasty surgeries performed at his private practice include:

Banner media

Cosmetic rhinoplasty

Primarily focuses on enhancing the nose's aesthetic appearance, addressing issues like humps, size, or asymmetry to achieve a desired look.

Reconstructive rhinoplasty

Tailored to correct structural defects or injuries, aiming to restore nasal function and a natural appearance, especially after trauma or prior surgery.

Ethnic rhinoplasty

Personalized approach that respects and maintains ethnic characteristics while making desired modifications, ensuring that the nose harmonizes with other facial features.

Male rhinoplasty

Designed to cater to the unique aesthetic desires and anatomical differences of male patients, emphasizing a more robust and sharper appearance.

Revision rhinoplasty

Also known as secondary rhinoplasty, this procedure corrects issues or irregularities from previous nose surgery, typically more complex due to the altered anatomy and scar tissue.

Female rhinoplasty

Concentrates on achieving a softer, refined appearance, often emphasizing subtle contours and a more delicate nasal tip.

Complementary procedures

To further enhance facial balance, consider combining rhinoplasty with chin augmentation or submental liposuction.

Male vs. female rhinoplasty

While techniques remain consistent, aesthetic goals can differ. A traditionally masculine nose might have a sharper bridge, and a more feminine nose might lean towards a softer bridge and slightly upturned tip. Dr. Liebertz has an artistic eye for nose correction, and his extensive experience allows him to create the ideal balance between the features of both men and women.
