Most Orange County patients who are considering the rhinoplasty procedure are very concerned about the presence of scars after the operation. There exists two types of rhinoplasty procedures: open and close rhinoplasty. Dr. Kevin Sadati has found that patients often request the closed rhinoplasty approach, largely because they have heard there is hardly any scarring after the operation. However, Newport Beach patients who work with Dr. Sadati will find that either procedure will have minimal scarring. Dr. Sadati uses the open approach for their surgery in order to achieve optimum results and assures an absolutely natural look.
The Open Approach and Scars
A trans-columellar incision is used in the open approach. This incision is placed in between the two nostrils, allowing Dr. Sadati to fold up the nasal skin as if it were a car hood. This gives the surgeon the best vantage point while at the same time offering unparalleled access to the nasal structure. Ultimately, this allows Dr. Sadati to improve his precision and perform the most subtle changes to the nose.
The trans-columellar incision is shaped like an inverted letter V, and it heals remarkably well. The incision is hidden underneath the tip of the nose, people would not be able to see it. However, this delicate incision almost always heals completely, leaving virtually no scar tissue behind. Patients are amazed at the fact that they can have a major cosmetic surgery procedure and literally show no sign of it. It’s important to remember that not every surgeon can achieve these scar-less results. Only the best experts in the field have the ability to perform an open rhinoplasty with the care and precision required to avoid scarring completely.
Patients who have significant structural issues in their nose as well as disfigurement will find that the open rhinoplasty approach is the best choice for them. In fact, Dr. Sadati uses this surgical technique with the majority of his patients. After many years of practice, Dr. Sadati has found that the closed approach is not as beneficial as experts once believed. He prefers to be able to have this ideal vantage point of the nose while operating, and he enjoys providing his patients with impeccable results without any scarring. About 85 percent of the rhinoplasty procedures performed by Dr. Sadati will require the open approach.
You might want to shout it from the roof tops that you had a nose job done. However, other individuals are embarrassed with people knowing they have had work done. Either way, Dr. Sadati can ensure that either way you don’t have any scars as proof of your procedure. He understands that most people want to improve the structure and appearance of their nose without making it appear entirely noticeable. He has earned a reputation in the community for providing the most natural-looking rhinoplasty results, and he knows what needs to be done in order for the nose to complement the rest of the facial features.
