Computer Imaged versus Real Results III

And now for the final installation in our series of photos demonstrating the comparison of simulated surgical results done pre-operatively with actual rhinoplasty results obtained over one year after surgery. This already beautiful young woman wanted her nose to better balance with her face through hump reduction, tip narrowing and refinement, deprojection, and correction of a hanging columella.

In the After photos on the right, you can see how this sense of definition and balance was achieved while maintaining a beautiful, natural look.

    The actual result looks even better than the computer imaging!

    Hi Steve,

    Thanks for your comment. The actual results often look better than the imaged pictures partly because we try not to overpromise with the computer imaging. More than that, the computer software is limited in that it can pull and push edges and contours, but it cannot recreate the natural highlights and shadows that we see in an undistorted photo. As a result, imaged photos can tend to look a little artificial, especially from the front. Understanding that, the frontal photo as well as other views can be very useful in outlining the general shape that the proposed surgery can achieve.

    Wow, i have to say it is easy for me to tell when someone got a nose job, but all the results I’ve seen are all very natural. How much is it though?

    We appreciate the sentiment. We try very hard to individualize each procedure in order to ensure that we achieve each patient’s goals. Our fees vary slightly based on the length and complexity of the surgery. Feel free to contact us at 310-276-6800 for more details.

    Very nice work, very impressed. You guys do fabulous work, what is the average down time for this procedure?

    Thanks, John. Average down time is about a week since patients are wearing a splint over the nose. Even then, most will feel comfortable during that time running errands and working from home, etc. After a week, most patients feel very presentable and are able to return to work and social activities.
