Dr. Theunissen’s Approach

TOP IN RHINOPLASTY TECHNIQUES

Dr. Taylor Theunissen brings the latest rhinoplasty treatment options to his New Orleans and Metairie patients. Depending on the condition of the patient’s nose, and what they are looking to achieve, Dr. Theunissen may utilize one of the following treatment techniques:

CLOSED RHINOPLASTY

During closed rhinoplasty, the incision is made inside of the nose from the entrance of the nostrils. This procedure is a very common rhinoplasty technique that can yields the desired result when minor reshaping is all that is needed. There are no visibles scars that are visible due to the incision entrance point being within the nostrils. This makes closed rhinoplasty often the best approach for an optimal nose job surgery. For more severe cases, sometimes an open nose job is recommended. 

OPEN RHINOPLASTY

Open rhinoplasty requires Dr. Theunissen to make an incision at the tissue between the nostrils. This allows for wider access to the confines to the nose and makes it easier for the nose job surgeon to manipulate the bone and cartilage. The skin will be pulled back to reveal the nose’s internal structure, and then redraped once reshaping is complete. Scars associated with this surgical technique are usually very tiny (typically less than 5mm) and hardly noticeable after recovery.

NON SURGICAL NOSE JOB NEW ORLEANS

New Orleans and Metairie patients who are looking for minor nose reshaping may benefit from non surgical nose job in New Orleans by use of  injectable fillers. This entails a variety of liquid-based substances that are injected into the nasal region to add volume and hide small deformities. In some cases, the rhinoplasty surgeon will transfer fat from other parts of the body into the nose region to achieve the desired and more permanent cosmetic results.
