Orange County in Southern California has a reputation for sun, fun and beautiful people, and that includes Laguna Hills. However, finding natural beauty often requires more than maintaining good health because there is usually a feature or two that needs reshaping in order to correct a defect of deformity that nature bestowed. One of the most common plastic surgery procedures requested is the rhinoplasty. And when the time comes to find an expert surgeon, many residents of Laguna Hills head directly for the Newport Beach OC Cosmetic Surgery Clinique.
Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure in which the structure of the nose is changed in order to improve form and function. Form improvements include narrowing nostrils, reshaping the nose, reshaping the bridge and changing the shape of the tip of the nose, to name a few major reasons people choose Laguna Hills rhinoplasty surgery. Function improvements include reshaping the nose in order to improve breathing or to correct damage to the nose caused by an injury or cancer surgery. Function improvements also include correcting birth defects.
Common Laguna Hills rhinoplasty procedures usually take one-to-two hours. The process involves lifting the skin from the nose in order to reach cartilage and bone for surgical sculpting. However, more complicated surgeries take longer, especially if they involve grafting tissue from another section of the body. Though common, the surgery requires a high level of skill and experience because each person has a different nasal structure and skin type. In fact, no two cases are alike. That is another reason Laguna Hills residents drive the 18 miles to the Newport Beach OC Cosmetic Surgery Clinique to access the services of Board-Certified Dr. Tavoussi, who has over 20 years of experience performing rhinoplasty surgery.
