REASONS TO UNDERGO THIS PROCEDURE
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
During your initial consultation, Dr. Sedgh will take the time to listen to your reasons for wanting to undergo the surgery and assess your facial proportions to determine the extent of the changes that need to be made. Taking these into consideration, the doctor will then recommend a surgical plan that fits your unique needs.
As part of the process, Dr. Sedgh will show you photographs of patients who have undergone the same procedure so you can have an idea of what to expect from the combined surgery. Your initial consultation will consist of the following:
RHINOPLASTY & CHIN IMPLANT PROCEDURE
Open rhinoplasty involves precise incisions along the partition between the nostrils to gain optimum access to the underlying nasal structure. This allows the surgeon to augment the nose with more precision, as it allows greater visibility of the nasal framework. Closed rhinoplasty, on the other hand, involves incisions that are confined inside the nostrils. This ensures that there will be no visible scarring, but it is usually recommended for less complex surgery.
Once Dr. Sedgh has made the necessary incisions to the nose, he will then sculpt the bone and cartilage to achieve the desired result. In cases where the nose lacks height, he may use an implant or grafted cartilage to improve the projection of the nose.
When the adjustments have been made, Dr. Sedgh will carefully replace the skin (if using the open approach) over the nasal framework before closing the incisions with strategically placed sutures.
For the chin implant procedure, Dr. Sedgh will make a small incision underneath your chin or inside the mouth between the gum and lower lip. The implant, which is made out of synthetic, biocompatible materials, will then be inserted and positioned in front of the jawbone using sutures or screws.
It may take up to a year for the swelling to completely disappear, but it should slowly start to dissipate over the next few weeks. In normal circumstances, you should be able to return to work seven days after the surgery.
Dr. Sedgh will continuously observe and evaluate your post-op progress starting from the first day after the surgery up to a year later. This allows him to monitor your recovery and ensure that you are on the right track to achieving your final cosmetic goal.
