The world of cosmetic surgery is constantly evolving with new trends and techniques as well as preferences for the type of look people are seeking. Dr. Philip Solomon, one of Canada’s leading Otolaryngologist Head and Neck Surgeons, practicing Facial Plastic Surgery in Toronto, has his finger on the pulse when it comes to trends and advancements in Cosmetic Surgery.
While traditionally patients have often opted for a Rhinoplasty as a means to eliminate or minimize their natural characteristics in favor of a more cookie cutter look, we have seen a recent shift from our Toronto Rhinoplasty patients.
In the 80s and 90s in particular, the most common reason for a nose job was to remove cartilage and shave down bumps to give the appearance of a perfectly proportionate and symmetrical nose. In recent years however, patients are turning to Rhinoplasty to best produce more natural looking results that will preserve and enhance unique features rather than erase them completely.
Dr. Solomon takes great pride in keeping at the forefront of technological advances in cosmetic surgery, staying up to date on the latest treatments and techniques. As a result, it is now possible to achieve completely customized treatment plans and results that enhance each patient’s unique features.
Our patients coming in for Rhinoplasty in Toronto usually do not want the same nose as someone else. Rather, they simply want to look like a better version of themselves. With the current climate in the cosmetic surgery industry, we are able to execute the smallest changes that will deliver the maximum results. Using artistic precision, Dr. Solomon is a firm believer that less is more. By making subtle changes to the cartilage, skin, or bone, patients can achieve life-changing yet natural looking results.
In the world of Rhinoplasty in Toronto, we are seeing that there is no longer a universally ‘ideal’ or ‘perfect’ type of nose. In the 70s and 80s, Rhinoplasty often resulted in a ‘ski-slope’ appearance to the bridge of the nose, with over-resected nostrils. Now, patients are looking for a less dramatic change, and techniques have since evolved to suit these changing preferences.
By having an honest and open dialogue with all prospective patients, Dr. Solomon is able to devise a completely individualized treatment plan appropriate to each patient’s unique facial features, skin type and ethnic background. Rather than the aggressive cartilage removal techniques that have been used in the past, we prefer to employ for conservative techniques to preserve the unique aspects of each patients nose.
Many patients today are also turning to Revision Rhinoplasty as a means to alter the results of a previous rhinoplasty procedure. In a time when it has never been more encouraged to embrace your individuality, many people are no longer satisfied with the cookie cutter results of their original Rhinoplasty.
When it comes to revision Rhinoplasty in Toronto, Dr. Philip Solomon has a wealth of experience in restoring support and structure to the nose, while providing the natural looking results the patients of today are looking for.
The future of Rhinoplasty in Toronto is looking bright as patients now have more tools than ever to make fully informed decisions and avoid disappointment or regret following their procedure. Computer imaging is another great tool offered at our clinic that allows patients to get a preview of what their results may resemble prior to undergoing their rhinoplasty surgery.
