The rhinoplasty and chin implant procedure will be performed on the same day. In most cases, both surgeries will be performed under general anesthesia.
Dr. Sedgh places the highest importance on creating a natural yet symmetrical look that fulfills the patient’s cosmetic and functional needs. For this to be achieved, he will choose the best incision approach (either open or closed) and the most suitable rhinoplasty techniques that will enable him to perform precise adjustments and ensure the overall success of the surgery.
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.
