Featured Patient: Rhinoplasty (actual patient of Dr. Sandel)

Rhinoplasty or “nose surgery” is one of the most requested surgical procedures of teenagers. Reshaping the nose can give new confi dence to patients by removing a hump, reducing the size of the tip and making the nose smaller and less noticeable. In many cases, not only are refi nements made to the shape but also to its function. Both aspects can be addressed to give patients a natural, soft er appearing nose that breathes and functions well.

Th e Sandel Center participates with most health insurance plans to treat patients with nasal breathing disorders, skin cancer, facial trauma, and scar revision.

“For many people, there is an association of plastic surgery with just cosmetic surgery,” says Dr. Sandel. “While we certainly excel in these procedures, many of our patients visit us because they need reconstructive procedures to fi x nasal breathing disorders, issues left behind in the wake of diseases or accidents, or skin cancer diagnosis and repair. Whether a patient comes to us for cosmetic purposes or for reconstruction, the overall goal is a quality, natural result. For that, patients can really benefi t from a plastic surgeon with specialized training in facial procedures.”

Q: Short of surgery, are there things that can be done for the sagging skin on my face?

A: There are numerous treatment options available for this common concern, both surgical and nonsurgical. While surgery is the only real option for removing and lift ing redundant skin, it usually doesn’t require a full facelift procedure. If improving skin texture and fi rmness is your goal, there are nonsurgical treatment options. Th e Lumenis fractionated CO2 laser skin rejuvenation procedure is the treatment of choice. Th is procedure provides exceptional, consistent results with only one treatment. Sagging skin can create folds and wrinkles around the mouth and cheeks. Th ese folds can be reduced by using injectable fi llers such as Perlane, Restylane and Juvederm. Radiesse is another injectable fi ller that works best to provide volume to the midface and is sometimes termed or referred to as a “liquid facelift .”
