Rhinoplasty, which comes from the Greek word to shape the nose, is a plastic surgery procedure aimed to correct a nasal deformity that is congenital or acquired.
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, in their cosmetic national data bank statistic reports of 2010, nose reshaping (rhinoplasty) was performed in 252,261 patients that year. That is a 1% decrease from 2009 and a 35% decrease from 2000.
Dr. Roudner’s surgical goal is to restore the form and function of the nose in reconstructive rhinoplasty such as: after nasal trauma, secondary rhinoplasty, respiratory compromise or congenital deformity. In cosmetic rhinoplasty cases his goal is to correct the nasal deformity and aesthetically enhance the appearance of the nose according to the patient’s desire.
Dr. Roudner may perform either a closed rhinoplasty or open rhinoplasty to achieve the pre-operative goals. By separating the nasal skin and soft tissues from their underlying skeletal support and reshaping the bones and nasal cartilages Dr. Roudner creates a functional and facially proportionate nose.
