Rhinoplasty, is a surgical procedure meant to improve the appearance and function of the nose. It is considered by many to be the most challenging procedure in cosmetic surgery.
There are an unlimited number of ways the nose can be modified with a rhinoplasty. The overall size of the nose can be reduced or increased, a hump can be removed or the bridge built up, the angle between the nose and the upper lip can be changed, a multitude of changes can be done to the tip, the nostrils can be narrowed, and so on. Rhinoplasty can also correct many types of breathing problems related to the nasal structure.
Nasal surgery on a patient that has never undergone this type of surgery is called primary rhinoplasty. Primary rhinoplasty is the best opportunity to deliver optimal results because the anatomy is undisturbed and there is no scar tissue or missing cartilage. Careful planning and excellent execution can deliver gorgeous outcomes with fewer limitations than those which occasionally accompany secondary cases. While many surgeons like to perform primary nose jobs, few take the time to analyse and attend to every detail, so that the outcome will be nuanced, balanced, and provide a pretty nose that no one ever suspects of being “done.”
Revision rhinoplasty is a very unique and specialized facial plastic reconstructive surgery, which is geared toward correcting inferior results resulting from one or more earlier rhinoplasties. Few plastic surgeons have the discipline, skill, training and passion required for a practice involving a constant flow of complicated revision rhinoplasty cases. Dr. Frankel prides himself on these types of cases, and feels a great sense of satisfaction when he successfully restores someone’s nose after that person has suffered a devastating prior experience. Dr. Frankel is renowned among the medical community for his revision rhinoplasty expertise.

As a facial plastic specialist, Dr. Frankel is also a master of nearly every commonly requested facial cosmetic operation, including face lifts, mid face lifts, eyelid surgery, brow lifts, surgery to change the shape of the ears, lip lifts, chin and neck surgery, and hair restoration. Skin cancer surgery, as well as scar revisions, are also among the many more procedures he deals with regularly.
While rhinoplasty surgery is often the only way to create the changes that someone wants, there are several non-surgical procedures that Dr. Frankel commonly employs to achieve a patient’s goals. The nasal shape, soft tissue, color and even functional aspects might all lend themselves to non-surgical modification. Dr. Frankel was a pioneer with these techniques, and his years of experience will help him to determine whether these are proper options for you.
