Rhinoplasty, Nose Job Surgery

The nose is the central feature of the face yet it should not be the defining feature. An attractive nose is balanced and symmetrical within the face, not overshadowing the cheekbones, chin, eyes, mouth and other features. Rhinoplasty is a cosmetic facial surgery that can be used to reshape the nose, creating a more attractive appearance for the individual.

A nose job surgery can be used to reduce prominently misshapen or sized nasal features. Common issues that are addressed during rhinoplasty include:

  • Reshape or narrow the tip of the nose (bulbous, hooked or overlong tips)
  • Remove lumps or bumps on the bridge of the nose
  • Reduce the overall size
  • Minimize a broad nostril region
  • Elevate the bridge on a flat nose
  • Correct thickened skin, crooked cartilage or other issues

Dr. Benjamin Stong has extensive education in the field of facial plastic surgery and reconstruction, including rhinoplasty. He has received two board certifications in separate plastic surgery specialties: facial plastic surgery and reconstructive surgery and otolaryngology head and neck surgery. His proven results in facial plastic surgery make him one of the leaders in his field in the Marietta and Atlanta area.

Understanding Nose Surgery Options

Rhinoplasty is usually only performed on adults who choose to change the shape of their nose for appearance and function. It is not recommended for children who are not through their growth period. Teens should be at least 15-17 years of age before it is considered. Nose jobs can be performed in two basic methods: open or closed. Closed rhinoplasty has a quicker recovery time and a hidden scar as the incision is made in the nostril. However, this method is not recommended for detailed reshaping of the tip or entire nose due to the limitations. It can be used for removing a nasal bridge hump or some other simpler procedures.

An open rhinoplasty is recommended for more involved nose reconstruction. Dr. Ben Stong is experienced in both open and closed methods, but the open technique is used more frequently. With this method, a small incision is made at the base of the nose. The scar is easily hidden as it is located near the bottom of the nostrils. This procedure allows Dr. Stong the visibility he needs to use his artistic surgical talents to change the shape of the tip, nostrils and other nasal components. It is this attention to the details that have allowed Dr. Stong to meet and exceed the visual expectations of his patients while caring for their safety and health.

Before deciding whether rhinoplasty is right for you, it is important to get all the information you need to make this important decision. A consultation with Dr. Stong at our office in Atlanta can begin your journey toward a reshaped or resized nose. Dr. Stong will listen to your wishes and expectations then explain the procedure in detail. He will answer all your questions and review visual options using digital morphing software that can show how your new nose will look. The consultation and planning stage is an integral part of the process to ensure you get the results you desire.

Dr Stong is the ONLY Plastic Surgeon you should see, if you want the look that you have always dreamed of. I came to Dr Stong highly dissatisfied from a previous Rhinoplasty, and I was in need of a revision surgery to enhance my facial structure. From the first day I met Dr Stong he LISTENED to what I wanted and helped to design the perfect nose for me. His kind clinical team walked me through every step leading up to my surgery. The surgery and recovery went easy and I was back to my normal activities after a few weeks. It has only been a few months but I look and feel amazing. I get compliments all the time!!!! People stop me on the street to comment on how wonderful I look, and I am not ashamed to say that it's all because of Dr Stong. Dr stong didn't just enhance my looks-he changed my LIFE. Please call his office for an appointment today. You won't regret it!

I was very nervous at the thought of rhinoplasty. So nervous that it took me over 20 years to finally go through with it. When I finally decided to undergo the procedure I wanted the best doctor for this job. I am so glad I found Dr. Stong. His specialty is facial surgery and Dr.Stong is up to date on the latest surgery techniques. He and his staff are kind and genuinely concerned. My calls are always answered by one of his staff and Dr. Stong is seeing me regularly for months to come to ensure that I am healing as expected. My nose looks very natural and I couldn't be happier with the results. I would highly recommend Dr. Stong to anyone that is considering facial surgery.

I went today to get non-surgical rhinoplasty. Dr. stong did a great job. I also had a consultation about a surgical rhinoplasty, he showed me how it would look like the before and after and I plan on getting it done by him when the juvederm in my nose is gone completely. The moment you walk in everyone is very nice and welcoming. I've been to other places for lip injections but I think Kalos is going to be my go to from now on.

Dr. Stong delivered exactly what I was looking for with my blepharoplasty. The results were suttle yet significant. People no longer ask me if I'm tired. Mission accomplished.

I was really nervous even considering cosmetic surgery, but it had been becoming increasingly obvious that my youthful glow had dimmed. All the typical bad decisions we make in our youth, sunbathing without sunscreen and years of smoking had taken its toll. I was lucky to find Dr. Stong. He was referred to me by my Dermatopathologist Dr. Dirk Robertson. Dr Stong is a no nonsense type physician who gave me so much of his time from my first visit to my last. On March 16th I had a facelift and upper blepharoplasty. I love it! I’m still healing but the changes so far have been amazing. Dr. Stong was very clear and honest on what to expect in every phase of my surgery. Love his staff, they were super friendly, reassuring when I was nervous, and supportive throughout. Will return only to him for future procedures and will continue to recommend him to my friends and family.

I had been looking for a plastic surgeon to have a facelift and blepharoplasty. The office and staff were excellent! I am thrilled with the results. Dr. Stong is a kind and compassionate doctor and skilled surgeon. I would recommend him to any of my friends or family!

I met Dr Stong when I had to have my basal cell reconstruction on the tip of my nose. He and his caring staff were there every step of the way. I then decided to have a facelift and once again had a wonderful experience! He is well trained in both areas. I would definitely recommend him! Judith Hoffman
