Preservation Rhinoplasty: The Newest Trend for Cosmetic Nose Surgery

Denver, CO – Dr. Christopher Cote is a leader in the field of rhinoplasty, and he is often referred by other practices for more complex cases that require special care. Dr. Cote and the team at Faces First Cosmetic Surgery, rely on the latest innovations and techniques in plastic surgery to give his patients the best possible results. Preservation rhinoplasty is not a new technique, but it is recently gaining popularity and has been offered consistently to many of their recent patients.

Preservation rhinoplasty aims to preserve as much of the natural tissue as possible to create a natural look while maintaining the structure of the nose. The main concern treated with preservation rhinoplasty is a dorsal hump or bump on the bridge of the nose. Traditional rhinoplasty removes the hump by shaving the bone and removing cartilage from above the dorsal line. With preservation techniques, small amounts of cartilage and bone are removed from underneath the dorsal line to bring the bump down. This results in less swelling and bruising, allowing for a quicker recovery and a smoother contour on the nasal bridge.

“Preservation rhinoplasty is just the latest of cutting edge techniques I use in my practice to create the best results for the patient. This, combined with structural rhinoplasty techniques with both open and closed approaches, allows great flexibility during surgery to obtain the best result for the patient.”

Dr. Cote is a double board-certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon and otolaryngologist (head and neck surgery), giving him a unique understanding of nasal structure and function. He understands that by removing minimal amounts of bone and cartilage from the nose, there is less risk of the bridge collapsing, which could impair breathing and create unnatural results. Form and function are of equal importance, and preservation rhinoplasty addresses both those factors to satisfy patients’ cosmetic and medical needs.
