Who Can Benefit From Nose Surgery (Rhinoplasty) in Des Moines?
This is the first of a 4-part blog series on nose surgery (rhinoplasty) in Des Moines and the Heartland.
Mercy Plastic Surgeons, Samuel Maurice, MD and Michael Carlisle, MD are known for their expertise in nose surgery (rhinoplasty). Patients who have plastic nose surgery in Des Moines often experience a boost in self-confidence after the procedure. Other patients choose plastic nose surgery for functional concerns (difficulty breathing). This is the first of four blog posts highlighting the unique aspects of nose surgery (rhinoplasty) in Des Moines by Mercy Plastic Surgery—serving patients in the Heartland.
The goal of each cosmetic rhinoplasty is to improve balance and facial harmony. This is done by taking into account your unique facial features and then sculpting the nose in a highly individualized way to bring facial harmony. Dr. Maurice and Dr. Carlisle say that a pleasing aesthetic balance to the face is the goal, rather than “cook-book” type surgeries that use the same techniques on all patients.
For patients who have difficulty breathing, or obstructed nasal air passages, plastic nose surgery (rhinoplasty) in Des Moines can restore lost function of the nose that has come from injury, birth defects, or facial development problems.
Some patients may have had an unsatisfactory rhinoplasty surgery elsewhere. For these patients, our plastic surgeons also specialize in revision rhinoplasty (aka, “secondary rhinoplasty”) in Des Moines to bring restoration to lost function or aesthetic balance that were not resolved by the previous surgery.
