Hailing from Australia, wanderlust blogger Ola Endress has touched down in Hollywood North to continue growing the acting career she’s sparked back home, and also to work with Board Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon Dr. Buonassisi on improving her concerns with her nose. While her nose is beautiful to begin with, some of her concerns included a humped bridge that leans slightly right, and a tip that droops particularly when smiling. After years of research, Ola came to rhinoplasty specialist Dr. Buonassisi to help her be able to let go of her self-consciousness with her nose and finally focus on just being her best self in her new home of Vancouver.
Often stigmatized for its invasiveness; negative effect on recovery; and visible scarring, open rhinoplasty is a surgery procedure technique that facial plastic surgeon Dr. Buonassisi executes with expertise to allow for the most extensive possibilities in creating alterations to the nose to get the best possible results for the individual patient. Among the benefits of open rhinoplasty are greater precision and control when directly viewing the nasal structure, and better access for any manipulation of the nose tip.
The primary difference between the open and closed approach is found in the incisions, where open rhinoplasty incisions are made through the columella (hence the fear of visible scarring), and closed rhinoplasty incisions are made on the inside of the nose, in the nostrils.
Watch Dr. Buonassisi begin an open rhinoplasty procedure by starting with the incisions that will allow him to make the best possible alterations for Ola.
