What happens during my rhinoplasty consultation?
Achieving a natural-appearing nose without any evidence of surgery is one of Dr. Sanders’ favorite procedures and specialties. In addition to ensuring your nose appears natural, your rhinoplasty must meet your expectations. That’s one of the top goals during your consultation.
Dr. Sanders talks with you about the changes you want to make and how you envision your new nose. He evaluates your nose and overall facial structure, considers the improvements you want, and determines if they’re realistic. Dr. Sanders considers if the new shape or size is in proportion to your face and whether your facial architecture can support the changes you want. He talks with you about any potential concerns so you can work with him to create your perfect rhinoplasty results. We use 3D photography and 3D morphing software by Vectra and we have 3D prints made by Mirror Me 3D. The 3D capabilities and the 3D prints allow unprecedented accuracy and precision in all measurements used during rhinoplasty planning and execution.

When men come to see Dr. Sanders of Kenneth Sanders Facial Plastic Surgery, it's because they're unhappy with the size, shape, and/or function of their nose. Nose surgery (rhinoplasty) is the procedure that Dr. Sanders uses to re-shape a man's nose so that it is the best size and shape for his face.
Revision rhinoplasty is exactly what it sounds like—a second rhinoplasty, or commonly known as a "nose job." Revision surgery is more about correction of a poor outcome from a previous surgery somewhere. Dr. Sanders has many people referred to him because of his vast experience in operating on "difficult noses."
This is a corrective procedure known as a functional rhinoplasty that usually includes a septoplasty. Functional rhinoplasty is all about the "function" of the nose. It's about the airflow and removing blockages. Sometimes the shape of the nose is part of the problem.
Non-surgical rhinoplasty utilizes hyaluronic acid fillers to reshape nose structure. Fillers are injected into the nose to alter shape and produce an even, symmetrical appearance. Dips or bumps in the bridge of the nose can be corrected through the use of fillers to create a smoother look. The treatment is also effective in correcting a drooping tip, flat nose bridge, or uneven nose structure.
