Dr Kourosh Tavakoli: Rhinoplasty
Many people are dissatisfied with their nose either because of the appearance, breathing difficulty or both.
The best candidates for a rhinoplasty are those who are looking for an improvement in the way they look, not those searching for perfection.
Today, the trend in rhinoplasty is all about the ‘natural’ look away from the operated look from the 80’s seen on so many Hollywood stars.
The ideal age for Rhinoplasty is between 20-40. Between the ages of 16-20 the surgeon needs to make an assessment based on physical and psychological maturity. After the age of 40 the Rhinoplasty surgeon needs to take the patients skin quality into account as the cosmetic result can be affected by excess nasal tip swelling especially if the patient has very thick, oily and sebaceous skin.
*Dr Tavakoli is a specialist Plastic Surgeon with an interest in Rhinoplasty for cosmetic and functional purposes. He has performed around 750 cosmetic Rhinoplasty cases. Dr Tavakoli performs both cosmetic Rhinoplasty and also functional Septoplasty and Turbinoplasty for breathing problems.
