A rhinoplasty, more commonly known as a “nose job,” can create a beautifully contoured nose that will complement your other facial features. Dr. David Passaretti, M.D., F.A.C.S., offers several types of rhinoplasty at his Darien, CT, practice.

Reduction rhinoplasty and augmentation rhinoplasty are the two most common variations of this procedure: Dr. Passaretti can eliminate or add tissue to improve the appearance and health of your nose. He also offers post-traumatic and reconstructive rhinoplasty to restore your appearance after an injury or illness. An expert cosmetic surgeon, the doctor works with patients of all different ethnicities, and he can achieve beautifully natural results to balance facial proportions.

Reduction Rhinoplasty

Reduction rhinoplasty is one of the most popular types of nose job. If you want to improve any of the following cosmetic issues, reduction rhinoplasty may be right for you:

  • A bump on the bridge of your nose
  • Flared nostrils
  • A long or bulbous tip

To perform this treatment, Dr. Passaretti will remove small amounts of bone tissue or cartilage. Often, he can do this through closed incisions inside the nose. In other cases, he may perform open surgery, creating a small incision between the nostrils.

If you would like to reduce the size of your nostrils, Dr. Passaretti may perform an alar base reduction. This technique involves the removal of tissue from the area where the nose meets the cheeks. Resulting scars will be virtually undetectable.

Augmentation Rhinoplasty

If you feel that your nose is proportionately small, or you have an indentation on the bridge of your nose, you may be a candidate for an augmentation rhinoplasty. Like reduction rhinoplasty, augmentation may be an open or a closed procedure. Dr. Passaretti will often graft your own bone tissue, taken from the ear, rib, septum, or another part of your body. In other cases, he may use a synthetic substitute to build up the nose.

Revision Rhinoplasty

Are you unhappy with the results of a past surgery? Dr. Passaretti can improve your appearance with a revision rhinoplasty. This treatment may also benefit you if significant scar tissue has developed since your original procedure. Revision rhinoplasty may involve both reduction and augmentation, and may be performed as an open or closed surgery.

Post-traumatic Rhinoplasty

Post-traumatic rhinoplasty can improve both your appearance and nasal function after an injury. Dr. Passaretti most commonly performs this treatment for patients who have broken their noses. Often, he can straighten a crooked nose or correct a deviated septum. In some cases, he may need to re-break and set the nose before performing surgery.
