Jeff was hit with a
baseball bat as a child making it hard to breath through his nose.
Join Jeff as he undergoes a nose job procedure to repair his
breathing. Dr. Nassif also performed a platysmaplasty surgery and a
chin implant. Rhinoplasty is a nose-reshaping surgery that can
correct deformities or make subtle aesthetic changes for cosmetic
purposes. This article explains the procedure and the various
rhinoplasty techniques. Dr. Nassif also performed platysmaplasty
surgery, Dr. Nassif makes an incision under the chin to reach the
neck muscle (platysma). He then manipulates these muscles (which can
include repositioning or partial removal). Normally, platysmaplasty
takes 2-3 hours, but in cases where the surgery is performed in
conjunction with liposuction or a face-lift, the time may be longer.
Neck lift surgery can take a few weeks to heal completely.
Swelling, bruising, skin tightening, pain, and tingling sensations
are quite normal after platysmaplasty and are not necessarily cause
for concern. Normally patients can return to work after 10-14 days,
and resume exercises and normal activites after three weeks. A
post-operative consultation with Dr. Nassif is also scheduled around
this time. Chin augmentation is a common procedure performed to
improve the balance of your facial profile and correct a weak chin
or receding chin due to congenital deficiency, age-related bone
resorption or facial trauma. A weak chin can make the nose seem
larger or make the neck appear fatty and undefined. Chin
augmentation with an implant is the procedure of choice for most
patients with normally functioning teeth and jaw development. A chin
implant gives more projection of the chin and a better shape.
