Dr. Anthony’s Surgical Technique
Our San Francisco nose surgery is performed under general anesthesia and is typically an outpatient procedure. Different surgical methods may be used depending on your concerns and problems, and Dr. Anthony performs rhinoplasty using either an open or closed (endonasal) approach.
The procedure is designed to either:
- Decrease or eliminate excess bone, cartilage, and tissue
- Build and increase cartilage, if necessary for reconstruction
The nasal features will be re-positioned and the skin draped over the newly structured framework before stitches are placed either on the inside portion of the nose or within the natural external fold.
