DARIEN, CT--(Marketwire - Mar 13, 2013) - Dr. Fredric Newman, a board-certified plastic surgeon in Fairfield, CT, believes that a nose can do as much for a person's facial beauty as any single feature. According to Dr. Newman, a nose can lend harmony and balance to a face in ways that others perceive but can find difficult to articulate. He tells his rhinoplasty patients that when a nose is proportioned to complement the other features of the face, even a subtle change is effective.
Rhinoplasty, or nasal surgery, reshapes the nose to achieve a more aesthetically-pleasing and proportionate look. At The Aesthetic Surgery Center, Dr. Newman's private practice, he utilizes a wide range of techniques to alter the shape, size, or general appearance of the nose and create a more harmonious balance with the patient's other facial features.
According to Dr. Newman, many of his rhinoplasty patients approach him because they are unhappy with the size or shape of their nose. For these patients, their nose impacts their impression of their overall appearance as well as their confidence and self-esteem. In addition to the benefit of enhancing the patient's appearance with a natural looking nose that fits the patient's face and enhances their features, Dr. Newman says that nasal surgery can significantly improve a person's breathing.
Any patient who has experienced damage to the nose or patients who have an asymmetrical nose are ideal rhinoplasty candidates, says Dr. Newman. The Fairfield plastic surgeon works with his patients during the consultation process to ensure they have realistic expectations about the process, the results, and any potential limitations. He also notes that the ideal candidate is one who is self-aware and has put a significant amount of thought into their rhinoplasty decision.
After a patient's initial consultation with Dr. Newman, a patient coordinator will schedule a pre-operative visit with a nurse and Dr. Newman for the patient to review pre and post-operative instructions. Rhinoplasty surgeries are performed on-site at The Aesthetic Surgery Center where patients are in the care of five to six medical professionals.
In the days immediately following surgery, Dr. Newman says his patients generally do not experience much discomfort. Additionally, he recommends the use of humidifiers to assist the healing process by keeping the inside of the nose moist. Following their rhinoplasty procedures, Dr. Newman typically continues to see his Fairfield plastic surgery patients at the 3-week, 6-week, 3-month, 6-month and one-year marks to ensure each patient's nose is healing properly.
