Rhinoplasty, Septoplasty & Septorhinoplasty Surgery

Rhinoplasty, Septoplasty & Septorhinoplasty Surgery


Rhinoplasty / nose job / nasal shaping surgery is a surgical procedure, performed to improve the function (reconstructive surgery) and/or the appearance (cosmetic surgery) of the human nose. Septoplasty is a corrective surgical procedure done to straighten the nasal septum (deviated nasal septum surgery), the central partition between the two nasal cavities. When it deviates into one of the nasal cavities, it narrows that cavity and impedes airflow. A deviated nasal septum is deemed significant when it causes a crooked nose in appearance or causes other symptoms such as sinus blockage, nasal congestion, sinus infection, sinusitis, difficulty in breathing, snoring & sleep apnoea. Often, a septoplasty is combined with a rhinoplasty for cosmetic correction of the deformities of the external nasal framework. The combination of a septoplasty to straighten the nose & a rhinoplasty to make the nose cosmetically better looking is called a septorhinoplasty (functional + cosmetic correction of nose). The nasal septum can bend to one side or another as a part of normal growth during childhood and puberty. Also, the septum can be deviated at birth (congenital) or because of an injury (nasal trauma / nasal fracture), such as a broken nose. A septorhinoplasty is performed to correct a deviated nasal septum, a crooked nose, & other symptoms such as sinus blockage, sinusitis, difficulty in breathing, snoring & sleep apnea.

Lip Augmentation via Lip Injections: Are Bigger Lips More Feminine?

Lip Augmentation via Lip Injections: Are Bigger Lips More Feminine?


Full lips with an accentuated border have often been associated with beauty and youth. In studies performed on the science of human attraction, psychologists have concluded that a woman’s facial and sexual attractiveness are closely linked to the makeup of her hormones during puberty and development. It has been shown that the more oestrogen a woman has, the larger her eyes and the fuller her lips, characteristics which are supposedly perceived as more feminine. Surveys performed by sexual psychologists have also found that universally, men find a woman’s full lips to be more sexually attractive than lips that are less so. It is very easily possible nowadays to give a lady more attractive, curvaceous, fuller, lips, using cosmetic filler lip injections with Fillers like Restylane and Juvederm. Restylane / Juvederm are very safe, affordable, predictable and injections with Restylane / Juvederm Fillers can be performed in the doctor’s office itself. Dr. Debraj Shome explores the advent of lip filler injections and explores the data on whether fuller lips are indeed more feminine. Continue reading

Liposuction or Face Exercises to Make a Round / Square Face Shape Oval?!


With respect to beauty, the face shape plays a part. Though every person’s face is unique, it’s generally accepted that there are seven basic face shapes. The ideal face shape is oval. What if you do not have an oval face and have a square or a round, broad looking face? The most important step is to evaluate the reason for the square or round face shape. Is it the fat below the facial skin? Is it the muscle mass of the mass (i.e. masseter hypertrophy)? Or, is it the bone structure itself of the face? A careful examination by your plastic surgeon can help find the cause and treat the same. The face shape can then be altered by VASER liposuction if fat is responsible or if masseter hypertrophy (face muscle enlargement) is responsible, Botulinum toxin injections (BOTOX treatment) can be used to treat masseter hypertrophy.

Mid-Face Lift – Scarless Removal of Facial Wrinkles & Lines


A face lift is a type of cosmetic surgery procedure used to remove face lines & wrinkles & give a more youthful facial appearance. As we age, gravity and fat deflation (loss of volume) rob us of facial fullness. One area in which these effects can be seen is the midface area. To achieve a younger appearance, in a midface lift, the surgeon can use a combination of several small incisions along the hairline and inside the mouth, this way the fatty tissue layers can be lifted and repositioned.

VASER Facial Liposuction – Getting The Correct Jaw Contour & Getting Rid of the Double Chin


The New Technique for altering facial shapes and removing double chins – VASER Liposuction. VASER stands for Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance. Simply put, it adds the benefit of ultrasound technology to the standard Liposuction Procedure. Ultrasound waves are sound waves at specific frequency and one commonly comes across it during ultrasound cleaning of dental plaque and while looking at the growing baby in mother’s womb. Vaser has resurrected ultrasound in liposuction. The speciality of Vaser is “ liposelection” – meaning it caused damage to fat cells only without damaging other tissues. Simply put, the VASER technology converts by sound energy the thick fat into almost liquid milk-shake like consistency. As this new type of fat removal causes much less ‘collateral’ tissue damage, VASER is used more and more for delicate fat removal from the face. The face, as we know, is a myriad of many nerves and vessels and any damage to a nerve or vessel has permanent repercussions on the way the face animates and looks. This is where VASER is specifically handy as the VASER energy can just melt away stubborn fat from delicate areas like the jaw line, cheeks, chin and convert a generally ‘round’ face to an ‘angular’ or more pleasant ‘oval’ one. Dr. Debraj Shome blogs on the use of this exciting new technology in facial liposculpture and removal of double chins, chubby cheeks and changing facial shapes. Continue reading
