Rhinoplasty, also known as nasal reshaping, nose job, or nose surgery, is one of the top 5 cosmetic procedures performed in America. Year after year, more people opt to change the most prominent feature of their face to align with their personal image goals. Not surprisingly, there has been a large increase in advertising aimed at people who would like to change the size or shape of their nose.
While this in itself is not bad, Dr. Joshua Lampert, a board certified plastic surgeon, cautions consumers to look farther than the promises and price tags offered by corporately owned and volume based clinics. Rhinoplasty is considered by surgeons to be one of the most challenging procedures in plastic surgery. Not every surgeon has the experience, technical skill and artistic intuition to produce the aesthetic results desired with rhinoplasty. With board certification and vast experience in cranial surgery, Dr. Lampert delivers among the best nose surgery Miami has available.
Benefits of Rhinoplasty
Cosmetic rhinoplasty is the process of bringing the nose into harmony with the rest of the face. The nose is the most prominent feature of the face and is impossible to camouflage. Rhinoplasty can correct any of the following issues:
- Nose is too large or too small
- Nose is too short or too long
- Nose is too wide or too narrow
- Hooked or “plunging” tip and a hanging columella (junction of the upper lip and nose)
- Prominent dorsal hump, or a large bump or hump on the nasal bridge
- Crooked, deviated or asymmetric nose
- Bulbous tip or thick nasal tip
- Overly flared nostrils or wide nostril base
- Flat bridge or wide nasal bridge
- Protrusion – too much or too little
Many patients of various ethnic descent would like certain features softened or minimized. In the case of ethnic rhinoplasty, Dr. Lampert ensures that the nose is brought into balance without masking the patient’s ethnic heritage and identity.
Before & Afters
All plastic surgeons should be judged on the aesthetic merits of their work. Review Dr. Lampert’s before and after gallery to see what he has accomplished.
During a rhinoplasty consultation, Dr. Lampert occasionally finds an undetected or ignored functional problem. A restricted nasal airway can be caused by a deviated septum – the thin wall of cartilage that divides the nostrils. A deviated septum, as well as other obstructions in the nasal passages, can often be corrected during cosmetic rhinoplasty. This gives patients the best possible outcome—a nose that is both aesthetically pleasing and fully functioning with nasal breathing.
The best chance at a fully successful and life changing rhinoplasty is to trust your procedure only to a board certified plastic surgeon with extensive experience in facial cosmetic procedures. Dr. Lampert spent over 6 years performing thousands of surgeries at the prestigious Mr. Sinai Hospital in New York City before establishing his private practice in Miami. His surgical training has been focused only on plastic surgery, giving him the ability to perform one of the best Miami rhinoplasty procedures available on the East Coast.
He is fully proficient and experienced both as a surgeon and a classically trained sculptor. Correcting complicated nasal structure while ensuring function is maintained or improved is a skill that few surgeons have. It not only takes years of experience and specialized training, but also an artistic eye for the aesthetic. Dr. Lampert’s artistic sense is second to none as evidenced by the aesthetic, natural result he produces.
At Dr. Lampert's practice in Miami, rhinoplasty is used to make very small changes that result in a profound difference in appearance. Much of the skill of a rhinoplasty surgeon is in knowing when to stop. Rhinoplasty surgery is “a game of millimeters.” Reshaping noses to bring them into harmony with his patients’ overall appearance is Dr. Lampert’s passion.
