Charlotte’s best rhinoplasty surgeon discusses rhinoplasty surgery
Rhinoplasty is a very popular facial plastic surgery procedure. There are several techniques balancing the facial appearance, including rhinoplasty and cheek or chin implants. Rhinoplasty is done to cosmetically alter the appearance of the nose. It may also be required to repair an injury or deformity.
The rhinoplasty procedure
Dr. M. Sean Freeman, Charlotte’s top rhinoplasty surgeon always meets with prospective rhinoplasty patients to discuss the procedure and educate them on what to expect. Dr. Freeman prefers to do internal rhinoplasty since this procedure has the stitches inside the nose where they are not visible. This procedure is typically used when there is not a great deal of modification or work to be done on the nose.
When Dr. Freeman uses the open or external procedure, he also makes some incisions inside the nose, but will also make a small incision under the tip of the nose. This allows Dr. Freeman better access to the internal structure of the nose where he can then make all necessary corrections. There may be a small scar under the nose, but it is usually well hidden and heals well.
Just because a patient is not happy with their nose does not mean they are a good candidate for rhinoplasty. Dr. Freeman will consult with each patient and provide them his analysis of their facial balance and his recommendations for improving their nose and other features. Dr. Freeman is the Charlotte NC expert in rhinoplasty and will be happy to meet with any patient to determine if this procedure is right for them.
