Dr. Pero’s specialty is rhinoplasty and revision rhinoplasty.
My personal philosophy of rhinoplasty is to provide patients with results that make them happy. In doing so, I follow a conservative approach and utilize techniques that minimize the risk of long-term complications while ensuring excellent long-term cosmetic results. Each patient is unique and requires a similarly unique approach to achieve patient satisfaction. This approach involves careful consideration and conversation with the patient on an individual basis with the aid of computer photographs and computerized imaging to decide upon a treatment plan.
My training in rhinoplasty emphasizes adequate support of the nasal structure to resist postoperative scarring forces that result in contracture and “pinching” if inadequately supported. This results in durable, long-time results that avoid the typical “operated-on” appearance characteristic of some traditional rhinoplasty techniques.
In addition to cosmetic improvements in the nose, impaired breathing can be corrected in nearly all cases. With all rhinoplasty procedures, unimpaired nasal breathing is fundamental to any successful outcome.
If you feel this approach is right for you, call today to schedule your consultation.
