I do not think the residents and tourists of Beverly Hills can ever miss seeing the office of Dr.Andrew Frankel which is also popularly known as the place for Los Angeles nose job, (also located in South Lasky Drive) where the bold and the beautiful can be seen coming out smiling confidently after getting their damaged nose fixed to their satisfaction.
Don’t worry if you can never remember ‘Rhinoplasty’, no one will be offended if you keep referring to it as ‘nose job’.
Rhinoplasty is among the most difficult of all plastic surgery operations and as a result there is a large need for secondary surgeries.
The need for rhinoplasty (I am sorry, need for nose job) arises due to deformation caused by accident, disease, or sometimes to enhance facial feature.
Invariably rhinoplasty is carried out under local anesthesia. But if a patient requires an open rhinoplasty that is done when major rectifications are needed, then the patient will go under general anesthesia.
The closed rhinoplasty is performed when the errors to be rectified are minor. In this type of surgery, no external incision is made but only to the internal part of the nose.
Because rhinoplasty is one of the most difficult of all plastic surgery procedures, there is a large need for secondary surgeries and it is called Revision Rhinoplasty. Many people have difficulty breathing from their nose or are dissatisfied with the cosmetic appearance of their nose as a result of a prior nasal surgery.
Further, this procedure tends to be even more complicated procedure than primary rhinoplasty, making it essential that patients find a sufficiently qualified and experienced surgeon.
Hence it is absolutely essential that before going for a rhinoplasty, be it a major surgery or a minor one , it is always safe to approach a surgeon who has been board certified in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, as well as Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery (Ear, Nose and Throat) like Dr. Andrew Frankel.
