Nose Procedures at Beverly Hills Profiles
Also referred to as a primary nose job, rhinoplasty is a surgery that is performed to improve or correct the form and/or function of the nose. At our Beverly Hills practice, we hear a number of common motivations for rhinoplasty. These include dissatisfaction with the nasal bridge, the presence of a large or crooked nasal hump, a bulbous nasal tip, nostril asymmetry, and difficulty breathing through the nose. Some patients are born with a nose they feel is not in harmony with the rest of their face. Other patients have suffered from an accident or sports injury that has resulted in aesthetic and functional deformations. Drs. Litner and Solieman are able to address a wide variety of nasal concerns through rhinoplasty with one of the highest patient satisfaction rates in the country. Drs. Solieman and Litner will improve the appearance and in some case the functionality of the nose, striving to achieve a natural look that restores facial harmony.
Drs. Litner and Solieman are among the most experienced plastic surgeons in the U.S. in this procedure. A septal perforation is a hole that forms in the nasal septum. If you suffer from whistling when breathing through your nose, bloody discharge, breathing problems, and nasal pressure, schedule an appointment and our doctors will see if a surgery can help.
Our experienced and skilled facial plastic surgeons Drs. Solieman and Litner have developed over the years a specialty in nasal procedures, operating together as a team on each of their patients - residents of the Los Angeles metropolitan area as well as patients who come from other parts of California, other states as well as from overseas. The most common nose surgery options are listed below:
Every face is distinct, contributing to the beauty of the world. For most individuals considering rhinoplasty, achieving a natural-looking result is a priority. And for those coming from different ethnic backgrounds, finding a surgeon who has a solid track record working with a range of facial features can be essential. Our doctors serve ethnic patients daily and offer them a highly individualized approach to restructure their noses. Attuned to the aesthetic concerns and preferences of patients from non-Caucasian backgrounds, particularly African American patients, our doctors will patiently listen and understand your aesthetic goals and will not overbuild the nose in surgery. After the procedure, you can look forward to a more refined nose without losing your ethnic identity.
Patients who suffer from a deviated septum often report breathing difficulties, snoring, sleep problems, nosebleeds, and sinus infections. Drs. Solieman and Litner are double board certified - in facial plastic surgery and in Otolaryngology, providing them a unique understanding of the internal structures of the nose and how functional improvements made by straightening the nasal septum (the wall that separates the nostrils) can be combined with rhinoplasty or other nasal surgery to also affect the nose's appearance.
We welcome the challenge of helping those of you who are seeking revision rhinoplasty and correction of irregularities that you have experienced after your previous surgery. Revision rhinoplasty makes up a large proportion of our practice. Although revision nasal surgery is difficult, there is good news: our doctors have found through extensive experience that, by using assiduous care and judgment, they can achieve great results. Our modern techniques have made the operation more exacting, allowing for better results than in the past. Drs. Litner and Solieman maintain one of the lowest revision rates on their primary rhinoplasty surgeries and are often sought by patients who travel to L.A. to perform a third or fourth surgery to correct aesthetic and breathing problems made by other surgeons.
