Rhinoplasty in Seattle, WA is growing as a specialty. The number of professionals that are trained to perform the procedure in the greater Seattle area has increased over the past two decades, and demand for qualified surgeons is not going to decrease anytime soon.
It's no secret that Ms. is a perfect example of the beauty of rhinoplasty.
Dr. Toonen performed her rhinoplasty after discovering she had a tumor lodged in her male sex organ. Ms. was a male who had not undergone any fertility treatments for several years, so to remove the malady, he decided to tackle it with rhinoplasty.
The successful outcome was immediate, as Ms. experienced her first menstrual cycle two months after the surgery. While waiting for the bad-boy malady to go away, she discovered she had a unique asset that many women don't.
A combination of hormonal therapy and removal of estrogen-dependent growths from her body resulted in a face-lengthening effect. The surgery went well and the patient is very happy, but she's also pleased with her "new" look.
Rhinoplasty in Seattle is most commonly done on females, with male candidates being considered by some surgeons. Men with issues with their penis are often asked to participate in a penile stretching program before the procedure is performed. The stretching and other procedures are then utilized to reduce the size of the penis, if needed.
Male patients will also undergo laser surgery to smooth out the penis as well as remove fatty deposits. Patients that do not wish to have atesticular torsion may be willing to wait for a few weeks to allow the torsion to heal. In addition, non-metric cages may be preferred in patients who wish to maintain their natural height.
Many men choose this treatment because of simple reasons such as their appearance or the desire to end a medical condition. Once the condition is resolved, they no longer have a need for rhinoplasty. Some men find rhinoplasty to be a "slap on the wrist" that restores the confidence they lost because of physical or psychological causes.
Men who need rhinoplasty must first be evaluated by a board-certified plastic surgeon to determine if they are suitable candidates. This evaluation may include an ultrasound, X-rays and a physical exam. The doctor will also check for any malformations that are not related to fertility.
After the initial surgery, the patient may be required to take medication. During this time, the patient's growth will slow, and the new nose and chin will need to be fitted properly. After recovery, the patient may need some time to acclimate their ears and nose, as well as getting used to a new nose.
Rhinoplasty in Seattle requires only a local anesthetic and a small incision at the base of the nose. It is also completed without pain medication or stitches. After the surgical incision heals, the patient may want to wear a custom-made face mask that will help the nose to get its shape as the skin grows in.
It is important for patients to make sure they have every precaution taken prior to having rhinoplasty, including following a prescribed pain management program and sticking to a strict diet plan. A good plastic surgeon will make certain that the patient can get the operation done without complication, including a complication-free surgery.
