Your facial appearance is greatly influenced by the size and shape of your nose. The slightest alterations to your most prominent facial feature can make a vast improvement to your overall look, making rhinoplasty one of the most sought-after procedures in plastic surgery today.

Rhinoplasty Techniques

Dr. Diamond specializes in both the closed and open rhinoplasty techniques and will perform whichever method is most appropriate for you. Dr. Diamond can give women the classic, attractive and elegant conservative nose or the “California Cute” nose, both of which require different techniques. “I make all decisions based on the patient’s desires with regard to what style of nose to give them,” says Dr. Diamond.

Dr. Diamond also treats many men who desire rhinoplasty, and over the years has developed techniques that create the perfect masculine nose. “I want my male patients to look natural and masculine such that after surgery people know that they look great but don’t know why.”

Dr. Diamond also fixes breathing abnormalities for every rhinoplasty patient. He is a nasal function specialist and believes that giving people the ability to breathe through their nose tremendously adds to their quality of life. Dr. Diamond has performed rhinoplasty on people of every race and color and has extensive experience with every type of anatomical variation, including Caucasians, Latinos, Middle Easterners, Asians, and African Americans.

What can I achieve with a rhinoplasty procedure?

Rhinoplasty, or a “nose job,” is a surgical procedure that is used to improve upon various aspects of the nose. During this procedure, enhancements can be made to change the shape, size, and projection of the nose. Rhinoplasty can also relieve breathing difficulties and reduce or eliminate snoring.

Utilizing his aesthetic and technical skills, our Los Angeles rhinoplasty professional can make the following improvements to your nasal structure:

  • Widen or decrease the size of the nostrils
  • Smooth out bumps and/or rises
  • Straighten the septum to correct breathing obstructions
  • Change the angle between the nose and upper lip
  • Change the shape of the tip of bridge

Dr. Diamond has lectured to his colleagues and peers and has written extensively on his innovative rhinoplasty techniques. You can see his extensive article on “The Art of Natural Rhinoplasty” on the Make Me Heal website.

Dr. Diamond’s renowned reputation has brought demand for his rhinoplasty skill from people all over the world, and this high demand has led him to open up an office in NYC. Dr. Diamond has performed rhinoplasty on countless Hollywood celebrities who make a living with their looks, as well as many of the rich and famous from around the world, including the families of several presidents’ and kings from foreign countries.

During a consultation at either his Beverly Hills or NYC office, Dr. Diamond will put your image on the computer and make the changes so that you can see what your nose will look like after surgery. “Rhinoplasty is one of my favorite procedures to perform, and I am absolutely passionate about the procedure itself as well as my patients. I give every patient 100 percent of myself to give them as perfect a nose as possible.”

Rhinoplasty Procedure

Rhinoplasty surgery is performed on an outpatient basis using local or general anesthesia, depending on the patient and extent of the procedure. To access the nasal bone and cartilage, Dr. Diamond makes the necessary incisions inside of the nose where they cannot be seen and proceeds to reshape or resize your nose according to your goals and desired look.

To perform your procedure, Dr. Diamond begins by making the necessary incisions inside of the nose where they are successfully hidden from sight. Then in accordance with your cosmetic goals, Dr. Diamond resizes or reshapes your nose by modifying the nasal bone and cartilage.

Dr. Diamond has the skills and eye for detail that can effectively enhance the appearance and/or the functionality of the nose. We most often use the patients’ own cartilage to provide support to the nose that has previously been weakened by surgery. Cartilage grafts help to rebuild areas of weakness that led to a poor distorted appearance and/or a decreased ability to breathe. Most often we use cartilage from the patient’s septum based on the ease of use and the appropriate strength of the cartilage. When that is not available we may use the patient’s ear cartilage which is not ideal for many uses in the nose because of the inherent curvature of the ear cartilage. The patient’s rib cartilage may also be used, but this too is not ideal based on the need to operate on the chest.

“Every patient is different, and the procedure has to be perfectly tailored to each person. Some people don’t like the idea of cutting on their chest or ears to harvest cartilage, and therefore I may use a synthetic material that performs the same function as cartilage. Other people wish to avoid any man-made material being used in their nose, and for them I use their own cartilage,” says Dr. Diamond.

Medpor® is a synthetic material that has been used in facial reconstruction for many years. This material now allows us to reconstruct a nose without the need to harvest cartilage from the ear or rib, thereby decreasing surgical time and decreasing the morbidity of the procedure. Medpor integrates with the surrounding tissue and has no potential for rejection. This is a very strong and lightweight material that provides excellent support to the nose in those areas that require support.

Using ear or rib cartilage is well tolerated by patients, but any time we can avoid creating extra incisions on the body and performing extra dissections on the body, the patient benefits. Therefore, Medpor provides an excellent grafting material for revision rhinoplasty when septal cartilage is unavailable and it will certainly become more mainstream in the future as more and more literature is published.

Revision Rhinoplasty

Sometimes plastic surgery doesn’t end up exactly as you had hoped for. You must remember, however, that surgery isn’t a means of achieving perfection. However, if you are unhappy with the results that you received from a previous rhinoplasty surgery, Dr. Diamond offers rhinoplasty revision. With his assistance, you can look forward to the nose that you had hoped for the first time around.

When evaluating a revision rhinoplasty patient at his Beverly Hills office, Dr. Diamond will review in great detail your previous procedure to determine exactly what has been done and what went wrong so that he can fix the underlying mistakes. This procedure usually requires strengthening the weakened underlying cartilage structure, and Dr. Diamond uses many different techniques to achieve this goal.

A majority of revision rhinoplasty procedures are performed using the open rhinoplasty technique. However, there are some that Dr. Diamond will do using the closed technique, depending on the individual’s anatomy and specific problems. Dr. Diamond is an expert at strengthening the weakened underlying structure of the nose to make the nose look great, and to make it function well. Dr. Diamond says, “The best-looking noses often have strong and sculpted cartilages that exert enough pressure on the overlying skin to give a very elegant appearance, and this strength is often lost when a rhinoplasty was not performed correctly. A majority of the time those noses that look the best also work the best for breathing purposes.”

Dr. Diamond is highly experienced in using every form of grafting including columella struts, lateral crural strut grafts, caudal septal extension grafts, spreader grafts, tip grafts, dorsal grafts, and alar rim grafts. “Some people require one or some of the above- mentioned grafts, others require all of the above, depending on their particular situation,” says Dr. Diamond.

Rhinoplasty and revision rhinoplasty require an advanced understanding of the nasal anatomy and functionality, and a very high level of surgical skill is required to perform these procedures. Dr. Diamond says, “Most importantly, these procedures require a certain sense of artistry that is unique to rhinoplasty, and that is probably the biggest reason why I am so passionate about and truly love performing these procedures.”

Am I good candidate for nasal augmentation / rhinoplasty?

During a consultation with Dr. Diamond, he will evaluate your nose, discuss your expectations and goals, and review your medical history. From there, our Hollywood revision rhinoplasty specialist will help decide if nose surgery is right for you.

Rhinoplasty is one of the most complex procedures in all of cosmetic surgery, which is mainly due to the most delicate nature of the nasal anatomy. Every maneuver made in rhinoplasty will not only have an effect on that particular area, but will also create changes in other areas of the nose. Revision rhinoplasty is even more complex then primary rhinoplasty. Therefore, the rhinoplasty surgeon must be an expert in nasal function and anatomy, and have a complex knowledge of the intricate relationship that all of the nasal components have with one another.

For optimal results, Dr. Diamond may also suggest complementary facial cosmetic surgery procedures, such as:

  • Chin implant surgery
  • Facelift surgery
  • Eyelid surgery
  • Neck lift surgery

If you think nasal surgery is right for you, please schedule a consultation with our rhinoplasty specialist of Beverly Hills and Los Angeles.
