Rhinoplasty Surgical Techniques Performed by Dr. Lee
Concerned about scarring? Dr. Lee may recommend a closed rhinoplasty, depending on your case. In a closed rhinoplasty, all incisions are made inside the nostrils. This helps keep scars hidden from view. While discreet, plastic surgeons are limited in the changes they can make to the cartilage and other nasal structures.
For patients wanting more ambitious shaping of their cartilage and nose, Dr. Lee also can provide an open rhinoplasty. Using this technique, an additional incision is made across the columella, the tissue that separates the nostrils. This extra incision helps surgeons make more dramatic changes to the cartilage and other structures of the nose.
Which Surgery Option Is Right for Me?
In the simplest terms, the decision to perform an open or closed rhinoplasty depends on the extent of work needed to achieve your aesthetic goals. Dr. Lee will work with you to determine which method is right for your situation.
Correcting a Previous Surgery
An initial rhinoplasty may not yield the results you want. The bridge may still be crooked, or you may require further tip defining. Dr. Lee can correct a previous nose job by performing a secondary surgical procedure known as a revision rhinoplasty. With revision rhinoplasty, Dr. Lee attempts to improve on the results of the first surgery and achieve a patient's true cosmetic goals.
During a consultation at our Boston plastic surgery center, Dr. Lee will go over your concerns. He will also note previous incision locations, changes to the cartilage structure of the nose, the shape of your nostrils, and other factors that could affect the revision technique.
Each revision is individualized to the patient to ensure natural-looking results and high levels of satisfaction.
A Focus on Ethnic Noses Preserving Your Natural Beauty
Not all patients want a cookie-cutter nose that isn't representative of their individuality and heritage. In addition to revision surgery, Dr. Lee specializes in ethnic rhinoplasty to give you beautiful results while still representing your unique background. Patients with ethnic noses come to Dr. Lee to correct asymmetrical features, breathing problems, fractures, and other imperfections that detract from the natural beauty of their noses.

Does rhinoplasty leave visible scarring?
Many patients are concerned about scarring during their nose surgery, but they're always relieved to hear the truth: rhinoplasty rarely leaves long-term visible scarring, and marks typically fade over time. For improved results, Dr. Lee offers closed rhinoplasty techniques, which conceal scarring thanks to careful interior incisions.
How long do rhinoplasty results last?
Your results should last for the rest of your life. That's why it's important to find a doctor who can perform your nose surgery correctly. Of course, patients may still experience a few small differences as they get older, which is normal for the aging process, regardless of whether or not you have undergone a nose job.
Is revision rhinoplasty safe?
After poor results from a past rhinoplasty, patients may be concerned that they'll never have the nose they want. However, revision rhinoplasty is safe, provided you choose a surgeon with relevant experience. Dr. Lee specializes in this specific type of nose surgery, carefully reshaping cartilage and structures to create the nose you wanted the first time around.
Boston Loves Their Experience And Their Results
"My experience with Dr. Lee has been nothing short of outstanding. He is so caring, considerate and thoughtful, and I am ecstatic with the results of my septo/rhinoplasty...He was extremely honest, helpful, accessible and accommodating throughout the whole process and wanted to make sure it was 100% safe before he did any work on me. He really takes the time to listen to your concerns, and never once did I feel rushed. He even gives patients his cell number for any questions/concerns that may come up. I continue to have the utmost confidence that I am in excellent hands and I look forward to continuing to heal and enjoy my results. I couldn't be happier with the care and results I've received."
