The nose is a prominent feature at the center of your face, but most people don’t want all the attention focused on it. Rhinoplasty – also known as nose surgery or a nose job – in Roseville can balance your nose to look proportional to the rest of your facial features.
Dr. Sykes carefully evaluates your face in its entirety to shape the nose in such a way that it blends more harmoniously with the rest of your features. He uses his eye for artistic excellence, considering the relationship between the nose and the chin and cheekbones while using advanced techniques to customize a nose that suits your individual needs.
Using the appropriate anesthesia or sedation to keep you comfortable, Dr. Sykes will perform either the open or closed approach, depending on your treatment plan. Closed rhinoplasty can be done through the nostrils entirely without requiring an external incision. This technique works best on less extensive cases and leaves no visible scarring.
Open rhinoplasty involves an incision along the columella, the skin between your nostrils. This technique allows for the greatest visibility and accessibility so Dr. Sykes can reshape the cartilage and bone structures. In cases where the nose has insufficient tissue, cartilage can be harvested from the ear or the ribs to rebuild the nasal structure for the desired look.
