Of all plastic surgery procedures, nose enhancement, or rhinoplasty, is among the most common and satisfying for patients. Rhinoplasty can reduce your nose’s size; sculpt the shape of the nostrils, tip, or bridge; or alter its slope or angle. Rhinoplasty is sometimes carried out in conjunction with functional nasal airway surgery, such as septoplasty or turbinate reduction, to improve nasal breathing.
Special considerations in rhinoplasty include attention to the nasal airway so as to not negatively affect breathing, as altering the nasal skeleton’s support can lead to dynamic problems with breathing if not carried out with the appropriate restoration of support.
There are multiple surgical approaches to rhinoplasty, and Dr. Kundaria is skilled at both. With an endonasal technique, no external incisions present on the outside of the nose, though less of the nasal anatomy is accessible. Using an open technique, more of the nasal anatomy is available for manipulation, though with a longer healing time. Every surgery is thoughtfully crafted to match the patient’s expectations and goals.
Whichever technique is being utilized, Dr. Kundaria’s goal is to give his patients the best long term result. This is especially important in rhinoplasty, as the “final” result is not in 6 months or 1 year after surgery, but rather several years after surgery.

The Nuance Facial Plastics Blog is here to give you the most honest, up to date information from us to you, in our “sponsored by nobody” style. Our discussions will include topics that interest our readers, with a focus on facial plastic surgery. We will use this space to answer frequently asked questions and also discuss current trends, new products, and emergent technologies. Information is widely available on the internet, but good information that is not marketing material in disguise is hard to find, and often times constitutes a majority of what patients read as their “research”. The Nuance Facial Plastics Blog differs, as we are an independent practice that has no exclusive deals with any vendors, companies, or other entities that would influence the quality and honesty of the information we provide you.
Our First Series
One of the most common discussions that we have with patients are about the differences between products that we offer, as there is some overlap. The single most common question we get asked is, “what is the difference between Botox and Dysport?”. Our first three-part series will explore the differences between the three neuromodulators currently available in the USA, Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin. Several topics, such as differences in the strength, longevity, or “spread” between the products will be discussed. Despite being broken into a three-part series, there is quite a lot of information, as the information from these posts are rooted in science, and the claims are supported by multiple articles published in high quality, peer-reviewed medical literature.
