The Different Types of Rhinoplasty Explained

Deciding on rhinoplasty is a big step. But to get the most out of the procedure, it helps to understand the different types available. Because every patient is different with their own unique anatomy and cosmetic goals, no two nose jobs are the same.

Rhinoplasty helps men and women address both aesthetic and functional concerns, centering on the most prominent facial feature. At Aesthetx, we offer various types of rhinoplasty and we are here to consult you on the best option for your cosmetic goals. For essential information on the various types of rhinoplasty, read on.

Primary Rhinoplasty

Primary rhinoplasty reshapes the nose and improves nasal proportions. It is an initial nose surgery performed to correct nasal asymmetry and enhance nasal function. Ultimately, the primary rhinoplasty goal is to help patients achieve a nose that complements their chin, cheek, and eyes. Then, they can enjoy a natural-looking facial presence as their facial features appear in harmony.

Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Berkowitz is a global leader for his rhinoplasty skills, has over 40 years of experience in the field, and most recently was appointed as president of the Rhinoplasty Society. He is at the forefront of cutting-edge rhinoplasty technology with his innovative use of Piezoelectric high-frequency tools. The technique provides amazing comfort and benefits to the patient, including:

  • Reshapes and thins cartilage easily
  • Precisely shapes nasal bones
  • Does not affect surrounding tissue
  • Reduces trauma and bruising
  • Speeds recovery

Dr. Berkowitz has been cited for developing power tools for his innovative rhinoplasty surgery and has lectured globally on his highly successful approach.

Revision Rhinoplasty

Revision rhinoplasty is necessary when the results of the initial nose surgery were not successful. Also referred to as secondary rhinoplasty, it corrects disappointing results from the primary rhinoplasty, whether cosmetic or functional. Dr. Berkowitz’s goal with revision rhinoplasty is to deliver natural-looking results, which don’t happen by accident. His extensive training and expertise will provide his patients with a beautiful nose that works as it should.

Ethnic Rhinoplasty

Dr. Berkowitz uses his ethnic rhinoplasty technique for his non-caucasian patients. The approach is a customized procedure adjusted to enhance the patient’s natural features appearance, without diminishing ethnic identity. To be proficient in ethnic rhinoplasty, the surgeon must be well-versed in various facial anatomies of different backgrounds.

Liquid Rhinoplasty

At Aesthetx, we also offer non-surgical rhinoplasty also known as a liquid rhinoplasty. We inject dermal fillers into the nose to alter its shape as an alternative to patients who don’t want to undergo surgery. Dermal filler can help correct isolated areas such as a dorsal hump or minor asymmetry.
