Beverly Hills Revision Rhinoplasty, also known as secondary rhinoplasty, is a more involved surgical procedure than primary rhinoplasty. The goal of revision rhinoplasty is to correct problems that persist after or have resulted from a prior rhinoplasty procedure. While some cases involve minor, easily corrected problems, more significant problems can be far more difficult to correct and require a greater level of expertise than a primary rhinoplasty procedure. In these cases, the surgery can be more cumbersome because the normal anatomy is no longer intact or because of excess scar tissue. Nevertheless, individuals left with an improperly functioning nose or one with an operated, unnatural appearance can feel confident that our doctors here at PROFILES will use the most modern but time proven techniques to allow you to achieve your goals and restore proper function to your nose.
Because every nose is different, there is no one correct rhinoplasty surgery technique for every patient. Additionally, concepts of beauty differ greatly, and what is a beautiful nose to one person may not be to another. For that reason, it is very important that in your consultation you discuss your concerns and expectations. In return, we will do all we can to understand those expectations and where possible exceed them.
Our primary goal for those of you undergoing a Profiles Beverly Hills revision rhinoplasty is to restore a natural appearance and proper function to your nose. We work very hard to restore or create the subtle characteristics that achieve balance and harmony between your nose and your individual facial aesthetics in order to make you happy with your nose.
During your PROFILES Beverly Hills revision rhinoplasty consultation, state of the art computer imaging is used to show you what we can do for you and to ascertain what your aesthetic goals are. There are limits secondary to previous surgery which must be taken into consideration, including the skin texture, scar tissue, and loss of cartilaginous and structural support, but there is good news. Both Dr. Solieman and Dr. Litner are Beverly Hills rhinoplasty surgery experts and they have extensive knowledge of the anatomical and physiologic functioning of your nose along with the necessary technical expertise. We are confident that we can make significant improvement in both form and function for those of you seeking revision rhinoplasty.
As the central feature on the human face, your nose holds a prominent position that can define the overall character of your facial appearance. When your nose is in proper balance and harmony with your other facial features, it recedes from view and allows other facial characteristics like your eyes and smile to become the focus. When your nose is even slightly distorted, it can draw too much attention and detract from an otherwise pleasant and attractive face.
A Profiles Beverly Hills Rhinoplasty is the surgical procedure to reshape the nose by reducing or increasing it in size, changing the shape of the tip or bridge, reducing the span of the nostrils, and/or changing the angle between the tip and upper lip. Though precision and delicacy are required of all plastic surgery procedures, this is particularly true when it comes to rhinoplasty given. As little as a millimeter can define the difference between a good or poor result. Because of this, rhinoplasty is often considered to be the most difficult of all aesthetic procedures.
Dr. Solieman and Dr. Litner are two of the top Los Angeles rhinoplasty specialists who are uniquely qualified to perform your surgery. They understand that the perfect nose must be specific to you and that form cannot supersede the importance of function. In other words, it does not make a lot of sense to have apretty nose that you cannot breathe through. With the use of our state of the art computer imaging, your doctors at PROFILES can combine your aesthetic desires with the underlying functional requirements necessary in order to create a common goal for your surgery. They are able to analyze the surface features of the nose of your nose and identify their related underlying internal structural components. At PROFILES, while we are very proud of all of our surgical offerings, rhinoplasty holds a special passion for us. OUR doctors have a vast knowledge and love of rhinoplasty that allows them to offer you the highest quality rhinoplasty surgery and its for this reason that they are considered the rhinoplasty and revision rhinoplasty experts.
The Profiles Beverly Hills Otoplasty, more commonly known as ear reshaping surgery, is a surgical procedure which returns prominent ears to their normal position and configuration. Protruding or prominent ears can be a difficult aesthetic deformity to live with, particularly for children who may suffer ridicule as a result.
There are two principle conditions of the ear which may occur separately or together. “Lop ear deformity” is characterized by the absence of the antihelical fold which is the naturally occurring fold in the ear cartilage. This results in an abnormal shape of the ear and a tendency to flop forward. “Cup ear deformity” refers to excessive cartilage near the ear canal which causes the ear to project outward. If you are considering ear surgery, be it for yourself or your child, at PROFILES we are happy to explain the otoplasty surgery to you including how otoplasty can help, how otoplasty is performed, and what you can expect for a result.
A balanced and well-proportioned chin is one of the prerequisites for beauty in Western aesthetics. Genioplasty, also known as chin augmentation, through the use of chin implants, is the surgical procedure which can improve the contour and proportion of the chin. While the definition of a “strong” chin will vary from person to person and between a man and a woman, it is well known that a strong chin is associated with confidence, strength, assertiveness, and beauty.
On the contrary, a receding chin often has negative connotations such as a lack of confidence or a weakness of character.

These fillers are meant to replace lost volume in order to restore a more youthful appearance to your skin by improving facial contours and smoothening lines and depressions. They can also be used to augment volume in an area where it may have always been deficient, such as for Lip Enhancement.
Non-permanent fillers, such as Restylane™ and Juvéderm™ can provide you with immediate results that can last anywhere from 6 to 12 months depending on your body, and the volume and area injected. Maintenance of favorable results can be achieved with regular treatments.
Many patients would like to achieve even longer lasting improvements and this can be done with newer semi-permanent fillers such as Radiesse and Artefill. These fillers can achieve remarkable enhancements in the right location. While they cannot replicate the results attainable with a surgical procedure for more advanced aging changes, they are often a good choice if you do not have the time to consider surgery.
