Rhinoplasty surgery at Kaniff Cosmetic is as much artistic in nature as it is scientific and rarely are any two of our patients’ noses identical. Board certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Thomas Kaniff strives to make each individual’s nose fit hers or his face. Like faces, every nose is different; some noses are too long, some have large humps, some project too far from the face, and so on. See “Types of Rhinoplasty”
Prior to surgery, photographs are taken and computer imaging is done so Dr. Kaniff may study the characteristics of the nose and face. The types of rhinoplasty are planned in much the same way an architect plans a house; the goal is not only to improve the shape of the nose but also to have it enhance the appearance of the entire face. See “Why Have Rhinoplasty”
The alterations necessary will be determined by many factors, including one’s height, skin thickness, ethnic background and configuration of other features such as the forehead, eyes and chin. Dr. Kaniff creates a natural looking nose, rather than one which appears to have been operated upon. No patient really wants an assembly line “nose job”; they want a nose individually tailored to their own features. See “Rhinoplasty Before and After Photos”.
