Cosmetic Surgeon, Rhinoplasty, Facial Plastic Surgery
Whether you are considering changing the shape of your nose for appearance, or because of breathing problems, or perhaps both, you want to be confident you select a surgeon who has the experience and knowledge to appreciate how important the role is between nasal function and form. Facial plastic surgeons excel in this procedure, having performed hundreds of nasal surgeries even before they complete their training. Truly an art form, rhinoplasty requires career-long dedication for complete mastery, and Philadelphia surgeon Dr. Hove has attained this distinction. He fully understands the balance between the outward appearance of the nose and the breathing function. Novice surgeons may not recognize subtle anatomic features that have a profound impact on how well breathing will be after surgery, or they may miss an underlying diagnosis of nasal polyps or sinusitis. This is especially true if their training is limited to just the outside of the nose.
Surgeons’ approach to the nose has changed dramatically in the past three decades. Techniques that originally gave excellent immediate results in the 1980’s have led to some long-term problems with structure and function. Dr. Hove often performs reconstructive rhinoplasty on patients with these problems. For first-time cosmetic rhinoplasty, surgery today is usually not so aggressive, and less invasive techniques are used to achieve natural aesthetic results while preserving the critical function and support structures.
