Rhinoplasty's are complicated

Rhinoplasty are by far one of the most complex and artistic procedures in facial plastic surgery. Dr. Naficy's practice has been 100% devoted to rhinoplasty and facial plastic surgery for the past 15 years. Trust your nose to an expert!


Announcement

"Patients' Choice Award" by Vitals.com

Dr. Sam Naficy has been awarded the "Patients' Choice Award" by Vitals.com - a website dedicated to rating the quality of physicians across the country. Out of 720,000 physicians, only 5% received this honor.


Rhinoplasty simulation

Patients interested in rhinoplasty may benefit from a digital simulation of the potential rhinoplasty result. Many undesirable features of the nose affect the profile much more than they affect the front view. Most of us rarely get a good look at our profile, and if so, it is usually through a photograph. Digital rhinoplasty simulation allows the surgeon to give the patient an idea of possible outcome from the rhinoplasty procedure. Let's look at an example.

This young woman had a rather long nose and wanted to make it shorter and less protruding. A digital photograph is taken and, using special morphing software, the nose is modified to a more pleasing profile. It is important to realize that these are computer-generated simulations of what might be accomplished with surgery. The sole purpose of a rhinoplasty simulation is to give the patient a general idea of a possible outcome after surgery, however simulations neither serve as an express nor implied guarantee of duplication or replication of these results.

Rhinoplasty simulation serves as an important tool in communicating possible rhinoplasty results with the patient and helping patients understand how the proposed changes with affect their appearance. Simulations are particularly important with our out of town patients as Dr. Naficy performs an increasing number of rhinoplasty procedures on patient flying into Seattle from all over the world. These patients sometimes e-mail their digital photographs to Dr. Naficy allowing a "virtual rhinoplasty consultation", which may include a computer simulation of possible rhinoplasty results, which could be e-mailed back to the patient.
