Case 69: This patient was bothered by his prominent ears and a sense of width to his nose that made it feel bulky and unrefined in his view. While still preserving his ethnic identity, he was able to achieve a meaningful improvement in nasal balance. Bringing his ears back into the vertical plane helped to make them less noticeable and remove them as a source of focus for him.
Case 42: Crooked noses can be one of the hardest things to correct in Rhinoplasty, especially if there has been significant trauma involved. The entire nose must be reconstructed in order to make the desired improvements. It took a lot of work to straighten and improve breathing in this patient’s nose. At the same time, his Beverly Hills Rhinoplasty was designed to make his nose a little smaller, more refined, and less down-turned while still looking natural. Even the scar on his tip was improved as part of his surgery.

Spread of toxin effects. The effect of botulinum toxin may affect areas away from the injection site and cause serious symptoms including: loss of strength and all-over muscle weakness, double vision, blurred vision and drooping eyelids, hoarseness or change or loss of voice, trouble saying words clearly, loss of bladder control, trouble breathing, and trouble swallowing.
Be on the same page as your doctor - Make sure both you and your physician are clear about what facial areas you want to treat, how you ideally want them to be fixed, and what the ideal final result may be. Different people have different aesthetics. For instance, if the "frozen face" look is your doctor's definition of successful Botox but you disagree, you better make sure both of you are aiming for the same target or you'll end up with a result your doctor thinks is beautiful but you think is horrific.
Case 26: Narrowing a wide tip can really soften the face. The challenge in Ethnic rhinoplasty is in making a nose smaller while still maintaining good structure and support so that definition is enhanced. In these 15-month photos, you can now see how tip narrowing along with reduction of the bridge convexity has created a very pretty, feminine nose that enhances her beauty.
Case 12: One of the things that we love about rhinoplasty is that we can combine dramatic changes such as straightening this patient’s nasal twist, and at the same time create some subtle enhancements such as refining and slightly deprojecting the tip while reducing the sense of columellar show. At 6 months, her nose now balances with her face and really brings out her beautiful eyes.

For me, the main area of concern is my forehead, which I’m told by all the greatest in injectables, to be the most common for those under thirty. After too many holiday sunburns, and recognising that I speak with very expressive eyebrows, the fine faint lines horizontally across my forehead have become much more prominent. So, in the name of beauty journalism I decided to give botox a try, here's what I learnt...

In terms of anesthetic, you have two options; this surgery can be done under local anesthesia where you will remain awake for the whole procedure and only your breasts are numb so you won’t feel any pain. Another option, which most women prefer, is to proceed with general anesthesia. In this case, you will be asleep while undergoing a surgical operation.
If you don't know what nasal packing is, consider yourself lucky. Nasal packing is gauze placed deep inside the nose, usually to prevent or stop bleeding. Dr Rival uses nasal packing in only about 5% of all his rhinoplasty surgeries. Sometimes in very deviated noses he may place plastic splints inside the nose to maintain a straight septum for 5 to 7 days.

When talking about the price with your plastic surgeon, it’s important to know exactly what the cost covers. Is it just the surgeon’s fee? Or will it cover anesthesia, facility fees, implant cost, medical tests, pre- or post-op appointments, and medical supplies you’ll need during recovery? Do you need to purchase a specific bra for recovery or will they provide one?

Let's talk real dollars and cents: the costs to the surgeon before your rhinoplasty determine the cost put on to you. Surgeons in Yorkville, for example, have significantly higher overhead for real estate and staffing and so that all gets factored in. That beautiful waiting room you saw? You're paying for some of it in your surgery. Yes, experience of the surgeon and extent of surgery determine the major cost of the procedure, but consider what else has gone into your consultation.

This is the cost of breast implants in Canada only. Currently, there are two breast implant manufacturers in Canada that offer Health Canada-approved implants: Allergan and Mentor. Both offer saline and silicone cohesive gel filled implants of a variety of shapes, sizes and shell textures. Usually, the only factor that may increase the average cost of breast implants in Canada is if they are cohesive gel or anatomical (tear-drop) shaped implants. This is a premium that is applied by the manufacturer, rather than the surgeon.

There are two basic types of breast implants: Saline implants are composed of silicone shells filled with sterile salt water (saline). Saline-filled implants can be pre-filled or filled during the placement procedure. This type of implant will give your breasts an even shape and more of a natural feel and firmness. It is FDA approved for augmentation in women aging from 18 and above. Saline implants may rupture as time passes, it may also wrinkle at an early stage as compared to other types of implants. However, if this type of implant leaks, its shell will collapse and eventually, the saline will be absorbed and expelled naturally by your body.

Stay still but pay attention - If you are afraid of needles, don't make yourself writhe with discomfort by thinking about them. Set your mind on something random, like monkeys juggling pineapples. The Botox will be over before you know it. Stay still but pay attention and follow your doctor's instructions. He/she will tell you to smile, relax, frown, etc. during the injection process.

"Many times, the cost of rhinoplasty or other surgery in New York City would be three times the price as in a smaller town, but it is not three times better necessarily," Dr. Park said. "At the same time, I would warn patients to beware of a physician in a small town that costs a fraction of what an average rhinoplasty would cost. In general, when a surgeon is throwing in discounts, I would be very wary."
Case 29: Major concerns for this patient were widening of the tip with a marked lack of projection which made his nose feel flat and washed out. Nostril thickness and rounding was also something he wanted addressed. In this case, irradiated donor rib cartilage was used to project and support the tip along with alar base reduction removing a significant amount of nostril flare to create a natural tip and nostril contour that is ethnically appropriate. Fat transfer to the cheeks helps to balance out his flat mid-face to strengthen the cheek contour which can be seen nicely on the profile view.
Some might think that this patient had had previous rhinoplasty with tip collapse, but she did not. Occasionally, the shape of the tip cartilages is very vertically-oriented, causing a deep groove in the nostril. She felt this, along with her marked tip crookedness, drew unwanted attention to her nose. Now, her nose is smaller, smoother, more defined, and just blends with the rest of her face.
Another option is to consider getting your breast implants at a teaching hospital from a learning resident. You won’t get the delicate skill of an experienced, board-certified surgeon, but teaching hospital residents are “assisted by established, experienced, private attending surgeons,” says Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Robin T.W. Yuan in a RealSelf Q&A.
These three costs differ based on a number of factors. Surgeon's fees will likely vary according to the market, difficulty of surgery, and experience of the surgeon. Anesthesia fees can depend on local market factors and whether the person monitoring is an anesthesiologist or a certified registered nurse anesthetist (CRNA). The facility fee can be quite different depending on whether the procedure is performed in a hospital, a surgery center, or within a private surgical office of the surgeon. Whether or not a portion of the procedure can be covered by insurance also influences overall price. 
Constance Chen, MD, board-certified plastic surgeon and breast reconstruction specialist, adds that the FDA is currently looking into fat grafting to see if there’s a risk of breast cancer associated with it. Other nonsurgical augmentations with saline or injectable fillers are extremely dangerous and not recommended, says Lara Devgan, MD, board-certified plastic surgeon and RealSelf Chief Medical Officer. “We do not understand how injectable fillers interact with breast tissue in the long run,” she explains.
Most healthy women between the ages of 17 and 60 who want to increase their breast size, alter the shape of their breasts, or make the breasts more symmetrical are suitable candidates for breast enhancement surgery. Each candidate will be thoroughly evaluated by our expert surgeons prior to treatment. Women who have recently been through traumatic stresses such as a divorce, the death of a loved one, or another significant life event should often wait before considering surgery.
Case 75: Getting a severely crooked nose as close to perfectly straight as possible is one of the hardest things to accomplish in rhinoplasty. Our extensive experience at Profiles with traumatic noses has us well positioned to treat these difficult cases and achieve a nasal contour that is no longer a focal point but now blends with the rest of her features.
Adam R. Kolker, MD, explains: Although silicone breasts feel similar to real breasts, they are still man-made and don’t feel like natural breast tissue. You’ll be more likely to notice there’s an implant in a woman who began with little breast tissue than a woman who had more breast tissue to begin with. Smaller implants and those that are placed below the muscle are harder to detect.
On May 27, 2019, following a safety review on BIA-ALCL, Health Canada suspended the licences for Allergan’s Biocell breast implants (the only macro-textured implants available in Canada) based on an unacceptable level of risk of BIA-ALCL with macro-textured breast implants. Allergan has agreed to voluntarily recall unused Biocell devices from the Canadian market.
The second type of implant is called a cohesive silicone gel implant. These are made with the same silicone shell but they are filled with a cohesive silicone gel. Advantages are that they often feel softer and more natural than saline implants, however they do require a slightly larger incision and may be more difficult to detect if they break or rupture.

We think you shouldn’t have to wait to look better, and more importantly, feel better about yourself. To help our patients afford rhinoplasty, we offer several financing options. When you apply, we’ll take a look at your credit history to determine your qualification and financing amount. Upon approval, you can book a date for your procedure. Afterward, you’ll make monthly payments. Financing can help you get where you want to be sooner rather than later.


The best reaction came from my mum, who is always honest. She isn’t afraid to tell me I look tired, pale or spotty, but when I saw her after my treatment she couldn’t have been more complimentary. After confiding in her that I had botox she yelped and said, ‘Wow you did really need it, now you look so fresh, like you’ve had a month of great sleep’. Thanks mum.
After consulting with your surgeon and reviewing all documentation available regarding the implant and the surgical procedure, you should consider taking your time before making a decision. If you decide to have the surgery, you and your surgeon should sign an informed consent document. Keep a copy for your records in case there is ever a product advisory or recall. You will be able to find out if you or your implants are affected.
As with any medical/surgical treatment, individual results may vary. Only a surgeon/physician can determine whether reconstruction or augmentation>is an appropriate course of treatment. The following are general adverse events associated with breast implant surgery: Device Rupture, Capsular contracture, Infection, Hematoma/Seroma, Pain, Reoperation, Implant removal, changes in Nipple and Breast Sensation, unsatisfactory results, breast-feeding complications. Other reported conditions are listed in the Product Insert Data Sheet (PIDS). See full list in the PIDS for the product information. These potential adverse events, including contraindications, warnings, and precautions need to be discussed with your doctor prior to surgery.
"Sometimes, a good reputation is well deserved, and sometimes it's merely hype and marketing," Dr. Naderi said. "There are reality show plastic surgeons who charge high fees, for example, based on their television exposure and publicity. Then, there are well-known plastic surgeons in the field who focus mainly on nose surgery and are true specialists."
