If you are considering nose surgery, Dr. David Passaretti can explain the many benefits of rhinoplasty at his Darien, CT, practice. These benefits may include correcting asymmetry, a bump on the bridge, or a bulbous tip. Dr. Passaretti can also perform rhinoplasty to correct congenital defects and to improve breathing. Working out of a private, state-of-the-art facility, he often uses internal incisions that can leave you without any visible scarring, improving your sense of confidence. In order to experience all the benefits that this procedure can offer, it is important to choose a surgeon who has in-depth training in facial plastic surgery.
The cosmetic effects of rhinoplasty are some of the procedure's most noticeable benefits. Dr. Passaretti can correct an array of facial aesthetic concerns, including:
Rhinoplasty will not simply enhance your nose, but give your whole face greater balance and symmetry. Depending on your unique needs, we can also perform an ethnic rhinoplasty to maintain your unique facial contours and characteristics. This procedure can also draw attention to your other features, such as your eyes or your smile.
There are several ways to perform the treatment. Closed rhinoplasty involves incisions on the insides of your nostrils, a technique that produces no visible scarring. During an open surgery, your doctor will make an incision across your columella (the cartilage between your nostrils). Whenever possible, Dr. Passaretti performs closed rhinoplasty but if your condition calls for an open technique, he will skillfully minimize the appearance of any incisions.
While there are certainly cosmetic benefits of rhinoplasty, nose jobs can also have functional benefits. Rhinoplasty surgery can also greatly improve your health. For example, if you have a deviated septum, the wall of tissue can block one of your nostrils and impair breathing. This defect can also disrupt your sleep, causing loud snoring. In some cases, you may even wake up many times each night.
While there are certainly cosmetic benefits of rhinoplasty, nose jobs can also have functional benefits.
Dr. Passaretti is also very experienced in reconstructive surgery. If you have suffered serious physical trauma, such as a car accident or sports injury, you may believe that your appearance has been permanently altered. Similarly, you may have lost part of your nose to skin cancer or another grave illness. During reconstructive rhinoplasty, Dr. Passaretti can rebuild your nose using soft tissue and bone grafts. In cases such as these, insurance companies may cover a portion of the cost of the procedure. Our staff can help you navigate insurance claims and assist with any paperwork.
Accompanying the cosmetic and functional benefits of rhinoplasty, you could enjoy a tremendous boost of self-esteem. Like many patients, you may have felt self-conscious about your nose for your whole life. Therefore, surgery can eliminate deep-seated insecurities. In turn, it can change the way you carry yourself and the way that you interact with others.
Rhinoplasty can truly enhance your quality of life. Call our office at (203) 405-2984 or contact us online to learn more about this treatment and to find out if it is appropriate for you.
