Cutting-edge (with less cutting)

The quest for the perfect nose can be a difficult one. Every year, thousands of people undergo surgery and recovery from nose jobs. But what if you could get outstanding results with less discomfort and downtime? What if there was a technique that was more precise than conventional surgery with less chance of complications?

It’s possible with preservation rhinoplasty. Dr. Mike Roskies combined years of experience and study to develop this cutting-edge method of rhinoplasty in Toronto for his patients. He dedicated his career to helping people look and feel their absolute best and is ready to help you get the nose you’ve always wanted for yourself.

What is Preservation Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty is a common cosmetic surgery, often known as a “nose job.” Thousands are performed every day, and variations of the procedure have been practiced since ancient Egypt. Developments over the millennia have made this surgery safer, more precise, and more effective, so much so that it’s one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures today.

Preservation rhinoplasty is the latest development in this long line of progress. It is now possible to get your nose closer to perfect with less discomfort than ever before. It provides lasting, optimal results with a faster recovery than conventional methods. Preservation rhinoplasty achieves this by preserving as much of the cartilage and bone in the nose as possible and using targeted interventions to alter the shape of the nose with less tissue removal; hence, preservation rhinoplasty.

The nose is the centerpiece of the face. When it’s crooked, misshapen, or unaligned, it can be a huge distraction from your face’s overall beauty. Whether its adverse condition results from an accident, time, or simple genetics, fixing your nose can be a crucial step toward achieving the look you want.

Preservation Rhinoplasty vs. Subtractive Rhinoplasty

Traditional approaches to rhinoplasty tend to be subtractive and structural. This means they focus on removing tissue and reinforcing the structure. These techniques tend to increase the instability of the nasal tissues and/or create results that are immobile and unnatural.

Their biggest weakness is in how the reconstructed nose adapts as time goes on. Because they’ve removed or reinforced bones, ligaments, cartilage, and skin, traditional methods tend to be inelastic and unable to properly adjust as your face naturally changes. This means that reconstructive procedures are inevitable.

Preservation rhinoplasty differs in that it seeks to reshape & repurpose existing tissues instead of removing or reformatting them. Toronto preservation rhinoplasty expert Dr. Mike Roskies improves on traditional methods by reshaping the nose without compromising your body’s natural resilience and flexibility. Like a highly-skilled sculptor, this technique allows Dr. Roskies to reposition your nose and its features in a way that looks natural and will last a lifetime. The results: less trauma to your face, less swelling and bruising, a shorter recovery, and long-lasting beauty without long-term nose job complications.

How do I know if Preservation Rhinoplasty is right for me?

—Mike Roskies, MD, MSc, FRCSC

Nasal reshaping can help address various concerns with the appearance of your nose. These can include:

  • Size
  • Width of the bridge
  • Size and position of the nostrils
  • Profile contours
  • Tip of the nose
  • Asymmetry

Because it relies on reshaping and repositioning existing tissue, it’s important that you have enough healthy tissue for the preservation rhinoplasty technique. This means that the technique is not suitable for those who have had nasal surgery (cosmetic rhinoplasty or septoplasty) or those who have had significant prior trauma to the nose. Additionally, the ideal candidate’s face has completed its growth process, and they are healthy overall. It’s also important that they have realistic goals and a positive outlook for their results. During your consultation for a preservation rhinoplasty Toronto Facial Plastic Surgeon Dr. Mike Roskies will review your goals with you and help you determine if this is the correct method to help you reach your goals.

Preservation Rhinoplasty Frequently Asked Questions

The risks associated with preservation rhinoplasty are similar to those for other procedures. While we will cover the risks thoroughly during your consultation, they can include:

  • Complications from anesthesia
  • Infection
  • Scarring
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Numbness
  • Suboptimal results

During your procedure, you can expect to be fully sedated. While under sedation anesthesia, you will not feel any pain or be awake or aware during your surgery. However, recovery can be painful for several weeks, so Dr. Roskies will prescribe you any necessary medication to help relieve your discomfort.

Yes, you do. Preservation rhinoplasty procedures usually call for sedation anesthesia, and the effects can take several hours to wear off. Further, you may be required to use powerful pain medication for the first few days after your procedure, so it is recommended that you have someone available to care for you during this time as well.

Because every patient’s case is unique, the costs of a preservation rhinoplasty can vary greatly. A number of factors impact the overall cost, like the extent of surgery required (including supplemental procedures), the technique employed, and your surgeon’s expertise.
