—colloquially referred to as a “nose job”—is one of the most challenging cosmetic procedures today. A delicate blend of artistry and science, rhinoplasty requires a keen eye and a thorough knowledge of the physiology of the human body. Though rhinoplasty is one of the most common cosmetic procedures performed today, it is important to select a surgeon with sufficient experience and training to undertake such a demanding procedure. At our Atlanta office in Georgia, Dr. David Whiteman has been performing rhinoplasty procedures in Atlanta, GA for over 20 years, with many satisfied patients.
Patients can elect to have rhinoplasty for a number of reasons. For some it is a necessary surgery to alleviate breathing problems caused by a birth defect or an injury, and for others it is an elective procedure done to enhance the shape or size of the nose. Whatever the reason, rhinoplasty can drastically alter the appearance of the nose and, as a result, change the way a patient’s entire face is perceived.
The procedures that are involved in rhinoplasty surgeries for men are very similar to those for women, though the aesthetics of the male nose call for different sensibilities. Dr. Whiteman has been offering the Atlanta area rhinoplasty procedures for men for over a decade, and has a keen eye for the male nose, and the technical skill to make it a reality.
There are several different ways to perform nose surgery, and the location and size of the incisions, as well as how long the surgery will take and what the recovery time will be, depend largely on the individual patient. It is very important, during your consultation, to ask as many questions as possible, and be as honest as possible regarding your medical history. If you live in the Atlanta, Georgia area and are considering rhinoplasty, contact Dr. Whiteman today for more information.
