Am I a Candidate for Scarless Rhinoplasty?

Surgeons who primarily use the “open” technique for rhinoplasty often refer to the advantages of better visibility. However, the scar that is left behind may be notched, malpositioned, red for a prolonged period, or otherwise noticeable. Scarless rhinoplasty, also known as “closed rhinoplasty,” is performed through small incisions inside the nose. Excellent results can be […]

Things to Consider Before Revision Rhinoplasty

When it comes to choosing a surgeon for your revision rhinoplasty, you must be careful to select an expert in the procedure. Revision rhinoplasty is not the same as primary rhinoplasty; revision rhinoplasty is much more complicated, and there are many factors involved that determine the best result.

Loophole in Law

Hello. I have been away too long from this blog and have experimented with a local radio show that was interesting but I’ve tired of that and will now try to be a better blogger! There is a loophole in the law that allows doctors with only an MD but perhaps no surgical training to […]

Prevelle silk is another HA product that evidently is less painful to inject the wrinkle and […]
