Of all the cosmetic surgery procedures, the rhinoplasty procedure is perhaps the most complex, since even the slightest alteration to the nose can change the appearance of the whole face. Rhinoplasties are also among the cosmetic procedures which require a higher rate of revision. Operating on a nose for the second time to fix an unsuccessful primary rhinoplasty is even more complex as the surgeon would have to work around scar tissue and may also need to graft cartilage from the ear or the rib cage to give the patient the desired result. George Bitar, MD, FACS, is an award-winning, fellowship-trained, board-certified plastic surgeon who has performed over 20,000 cosmetic facial and body procedures, and specializes in complex rhinoplasty procedures.
In addition to performing primary and revision rhinoplasties on men and women of various ethnic backgrounds, he also specializes in treating rhinophyma (the red, bulbous nose commonly seen in older men). The condition, caused by an overgrowth of the sebaceous or oily glands of the nose, is the result of phymatous rosacea. Dr. Bitar uses dermabrasion, electro-surgery and laser resurfacing to smooth the texture of the nose. Within six to 12 months, patients see their final results, featuring a nose’s return to its normal state in a much-improved form.
Clients also seek out Dr. Bitar for his knowledge surrounding ethnic rhinoplasty. As society becomes more ethnically diverse, so do the noses that Dr. Bitar treats. He understands every ethnicity has a different nose shape and is specialized in working with clients to match their noses with their natural features to customize their look. Dr. Bitar’s goal has always been—and will always be—to keep patients’ noses looking natural and to keep the noses’ character while also making them look better. There are several reasons why patients seek out rhinoplasty, including everything from self-consciousness to difficulties breathing due to a deviated septum. No matter the reason, Dr. Bitar’s surgeries yield significant results, which can include narrowing the width of the nose, altering the shape and size of the nasal tip, straightening the septum, reducing the size of the nostrils, and much more.
With their commitment to excellence and exceptional patient care, Dr. Bitar and his team offer a top-tier doctor-patient experience, giving patients the best possible results. The surgeries are performed in his own private state of the art surgery center with a team of board-certified anesthesiologists, experienced nurses and technicians. Blending artistry and meticulous surgical techniques, Dr. Bitar achieves beautiful and natural results for every patient. Find out more today at bitarinstitute.com.
