Nose surgery can be life altering. It can enhance confidence and self-esteem and often improves breathing and sinus problems.
For people who have a nose they don’t feel comfortable with or who have injured their nose at sport or through an accident, cosmetic and functional nose surgery is a great solution.
The nose is the centre and major feature of the face. Abnormalities of the nose tend to attract attention away from other features of the face such as the eyes or cheeks. The nose should be in harmony with other features to create balance in the face.
Disproportionate features such as a large bump, a bulbous or droopy tip, a crooked nose or nostrils that point upward can make the whole face look unbalanced. Correcting these unwanted features takes the focus away from the nose and restores harmony to the face.
People of different ethnic origins often have varying concerns about having nose surgery. Dr Marcells commonly sees patients from all ethnic backgrounds including those with so-called Grecian or Roman noses, as well as people with Asian noses. He is a recognised expert in what could be called ethnic rhinoplasty.
Dr Marcells trained as both an ENT surgeon and a facial plastic surgeon. He is highly qualified and experienced in dealing with both functional breathing problems and the aesthetic appearance of the nose.
Dr Marcells uses techniques based on open-structure rhinoplasty. These techniques take longer to perform than other methods, but he believes they help keep the basic foundation of the nasal structure strong. They ensure a predictable shape to the nose after surgery that will resist collapse, maintain a natural shape and improve breathing.
Dr Marcells and his staff provide a comprehensive consultation, including a thorough history and examination of the nose. Computer imaging technology is used to help design the new nose, so it is in harmony with the rest of the face. Computer imaging can also show how the final result will look.
Patient education is of paramount importance. In the first consultation you will be fully informed about your surgery, your recovery and the potential risks and complications.
A patient’s greatest fear after rhinoplasty surgery is that their nose will collapse or look artificial. Dr Marcells believes that with meticulous planning and assessment, and with techniques based on open-structure rhinoplasty, these fears can be put to rest.
