Rhinoplasty Procedures

If you are giving some thought to potentially getting a rhinoplasty done, it makes sense to go with the most trusted facial cosmetic surgeon possible. Having completed thousands of rhinoplasty surgeries in Toronto, we have helped countless patients re-shape their nose in order to correct deformities and/or make subtle aesthetic changes. Among the long list of surgical cosmetic procedures available in Canada, rhinoplasty (otherwise referred to as a ‘nose job’ or ‘nose surgery’) is one of the most popular, used by men and women young and old who are self-conscious about the appearance of their nose. No matter if the issue is something that the patient was born with, is the result of a facial injury, age-related changes, or is simply cosmetic, a rhinoplasty can help to provide balance and proportion to both your face and nose. Dr. Solomon has a wide array of expertise across various types of rhinoplasty surgeries including the following:

Primary Rhinoplasty

A ‘primary rhinoplasty’ is a term used for patients who have not had a previous nose surgery. A primary rhinoplasty is completed through the careful, subtle manipulation of existing nasal structures by resizing, reshaping, and/or augmenting the primary structures here. As one comes to find out in reading more about rhinoplasty, despite being one of the more popular cosmetic surgeries, it is also one of the most difficult perform simply because very nose is different. The exact anatomy of the nose differs in each patient, producing various sizes, skin types, shapes, ethnicities, nostril sizes, bridge sizes, and other finer details that a facial cosmetic surgeon has to contend with. As a cosmetic surgeon who specializes in rhinoplasty, Dr. Solomon has had experience and exposure to many different types of nasal anatomic structures, and is highly capable of effectively correcting any problems that may arise.

Revision Rhinoplasty

Revision Rhinoplasty

At times, we have had patients approach us about correcting issues that have arisen from a rhinoplasty performed by another cosmetic surgeon. ‘Revision rhinoplasty’, also sometimes referred to as ‘secondary rhinoplasty’, is a corrective surgery occurring following a previous rhinoplasty and is dedicated to solving problems that have developed or that were unresolved since the last surgery. In many cases, these types of issues are minor and simple to correct however in the case of a major problem, Dr. Solomon has been able to apply his years of experience and thorough expertise at addressing these more difficult issues. In the initial consultation stages, Dr. Solomon will speak with you and analyze the state of your nose, being able to provide you with options that are unique to you and your revision rhinoplasty. These types of procedures can be difficult as the repositioning and separating of bone and cartilage to reform the nose is working with what’s left from the previous surgery. A highly skilled, expert facial cosmetic surgeon such as Dr. Solomon is a requirement for such a procedure, ensuring that your revision rhinoplasty is a success and that the intended results are achieved using the appropriate techniques.

African-American Rhinoplasty

African American Rhinoplasty

The anatomy of an African-American nose is quite a bit different from other ethnicities. If you are undergoing an African-American rhinoplasty, you want a cosmetic surgeon who has the expertise with African-American facial anatomy to be able to achieve the results you want. For example, generally speaking, African-American noses tend to have thicker skin, wider nasal passages, flatter nasal bridges, and wider nasal bones, and sometimes with other subtle differences in facial features. The goal with an African-American rhinoplasty is to address the issues indicated and preferred by the patient, but while retaining the unique ethnic identity of this type of nose. The goal is never to ‘make a nose look Caucasian’. That is not the purpose. “While Caucasian patients may be looking to make their noses smaller, African-American patients may need to augment or enhance the height of their nasal bridge to give them the best-looking nose,” says Dr. Solomon. “It’s not all about reducing. It’s about reshaping.”

Asian Rhinoplasty

Asian Rhinoplasty

‘Asian rhinoplasty’ has a similar goal to other forms of ethnic rhinoplasty and that is to create harmony and balance among the facial features of an Asian face – not to create a ‘Caucasian nose’. The work that we have done under the guidance of Dr. Solomon has been to augment more aesthetically pleasing Asian facial proportions. If you seek an Asian rhinoplasty with a surgeon unfamiliar with the general nasal anatomy differences between Asians and Caucasians for example, a patient may end up with an uneven result that will need to be reshaped again at a later date. Dr. Solomon has done many rhinoplasty surgeries on Asian patients and has specialized in ethnicity-based rhinoplasty that ensures that one’s natural beauty is not being damaged. Through the initial consultation process, Dr. Solomon will discuss with you the goals of your Asian rhinoplasty and what is realistically achievable with regards to a patient’s own unique anatomy, effectively creating an individualized treatment plan that respects your natural heritage.

One of most important procedures to consider, a transgender rhinoplasty is an important part of forming a more feminine face for males transitioning to females. The nose being such a prominent feature no matter the gender of the face, a female nose is different from a male nose – having narrower nasal passages, a steeper nasal bridge, and narrower nasal bones.

Advanced Computer Imaging

Advanced Computer Imaging

To help our patients better visualize the outcome of their rhinoplasty surgery, advanced computer imaging is used during the consultation process to provide images of what a given nose may look like on the patient’s face and how the placement of that nose affects other facial features present. Taking professional photos of your nose from different angles, Dr. Solomon will use our clinic-exclusive morphing program to modify your nose, helping to review with you the different surgical options.

Generally, the imaging software is very close to the actual results in the majority of cases but is also used to ensure that a desired ideal aesthetic goal is identified.
