The Art And Science Of Rhinoplasty

July 26, 2016

The nose is your most defining facial feature. So, when considering a Rhinoplasty, it’s important to choose a board certified facial plastic surgeon who performs many of these on a regular basis and understands that this procedure truly is “part science and part artistry”. This is one of the most challenging facial plastic surgery procedures to perform. Patients come to Dr. Stephen Perkins because they want to change the look of their nose.

They may have inherited features to their nose that do not fit their face, or are not in harmony with the rest of the face. There are a multitude of reasons, and Dr. Perkins’ patients range from teenagers to mature adults. Understand that Rhinoplasty is not a “cookie cutter” procedure. Every patient has very unique needs.

Dr. Perkins performs a large number of rhinoplasties on a regular basis in his practice. He uses multiple advanced techniques that he teaches other doctors performing rhinoplasty both nationally and around the world. It is his ability to technically perform the delicate maneuvers that can achieve an aesthetically pleasing appearance to the nose. It’s the aesthetic sense he has that enables him to achieve the result that he can “visualize” artistically.

Here is a video and article from the Plastic Surgery Channel that explains a little more about the “art and science” of Rhinoplasty.
