Rhinoplasty – Improve The Proportion And Appearance Of Your Nose
Rhinoplasty, also known as nose job or nasal reshaping, is the process of enhancing the nasal contour with the help of plastic surgery. People may go in for rhinoplasty for cosmetic reasons or for functional reasons. Irrespective of the reason, the process involves reshaping the nasal cartilage or nasal bone in order to produce a natural nasal contour that not only beautifies the face, but also enhances the nasal functionality. The surgery is performed under general anesthesia, and patients may resume work within 7-10 days of the surgery, however, full physical activity can be resumed after a month or so.
The surgeon should have complete understanding of the facial anatomy as well as aesthetic sense to achieve a nose that is better proportioned and has a more pleasing contour. The surgeon has to work quite skillfully and artistically to remove the cosmetically unnecessary skeletal tissues and apply structural grafts or implants. There are a few anatomic considerations that might limit the extent of cosmetic change, and these considerations include skin thickness, skeletal size, and available blood supply, in addition to functional limitations and long term durability. The surgeon must have surgical understanding of rhinoplasty and mastery on the techniques too.
A patient who has complaints with nasal appearance or breathing and has realistic expectations from the treatment is a good candidate for rhinoplasty. An expert surgeon would listen to all concerns of the patient and educate him/her and give a feel of what he/she would be going through. A rhinoplasty specialist would endeavor to create a natural and improved nose, rather than creating the perfect nose. One may ask the surgeon for before and after photographs of previous patients as this can help in getting an idea of what the surgeon is capable of.
A reputed rhinoplasty surgeon would perform the surgery in the state-of-the-art plastic surgery center. After the procedure, some patients may express some discomfort; It is mainly due to the obstruction from gauze wicks in each nostril, but then, these are removed the following day of the surgery, and so, this problem is resolved.
As far as the cost of the procedure is concerned, the total cost depends on the work that needs to be done, although, it is not recommended to emphasize on cost savings when dealing with one’s own face. Before one schedules his/her rhinoplasty, it is advisable to contact the health insurer and discuss the possibilities of the procedure being covered.

Women choose to have breast augmentation for different reasons. Some desire larger breasts. Others want to replace breast contour that is often lost during pregnancy. In the procedure, an implant is placed underneath the breast tissue. Sometimes it is placed under the chest muscles. The choice of implant position is based on the shape of your current breasts, the amount of breast tissue, and overall body size. Incisions are made in one of three locations: Under the nipple, under the breast or in the underarm. Again, the choice of incision position is based on current body and breast shape. Dr. Kim is very comfortable will all incisions and patients will come from the south ( Newport Beach / San Diego ) or from the North ( San Francisco / San Jose ) to get their breasts done by him
Breast augmentation can enhance your appearance and your self-confidence, but it won’t necessarily change your looks to match your ideal, or cause other people to treat you differently. Before you decide to have surgery, think carefully about your expectations and discuss them with your plastic surgeon. The best candidates for breast augmentation are women who are looking for improvement, not perfection, in the way they look. If you’re physically healthy and realistic in your expectations, you may be a very good candidate for breast augmentation.
During your consultation we will discuss your goals and expectations for the procedure and what your desired outcome would be. We will discuss many topics such as desired size, shape, implant type and incision site. You may also be asked about medical conditions, drug allergies, current medication use, previous surgeries, family history of breast cancer and results of any mammograms or previous biopsies. Dr. Kim will discuss what procedure will most likely get your desired result and will show photos representing these procedures.
