Racial transformation

General Reconstruction

Member Response:

Hello. Thanks for your question. The answer depends on your starting anatomy. If the anatomy is far off from the goal, it may be quite difficult to make the changes you desire without resorting to extreme modifications. However if your starting anatomy is reasonable, we could potentially get you close. You would need to be seen in person by a skilled facial plastic surgery specialist to see what your options could be. Good luck. Dr. Shah

Skew nose


Member Response:

Hello. Thanks for your question. Depending on the state of the anatomy of your nose, you can definitely make improvements to both the aesthetics and the function of your nose. With a history of nasal fracture, there are often functional breathing problems that develop over time. A consultation with a rhinoplasty specialist near you would be needed to assess your goals, evaluate your starting anatomy, and develop a surgical plan to make the necessary improvements to your nose. As long as you are older than 17 years old, your face has completed its growth and can be safely operated upon, in terms of rhinoplasty surgery. I hope this help! Dr. Shah

Pre-Surgery Prep

Cosmetic Surgery

Member Response:

Hello. Thanks for your question. To optimize surgical outcomes in my patients, I have been using a Rapid Recovery Protocol that utilizes several supplements to improve your preoperative nutrition. Some simple options for you would be vitamin C and a protein shake daily starting a few days before surgery. My experience with this protocol has been uniformly positive. I would recommend that you speak with your plastic surgeon for their viewpoint on this subject as you can see that there are varying opinions. Good luck, Dr. Shah

Asymmetric jawline

Cosmetic Surgery

Member Response:

Hello. Thanks for this great question. Facial asymmetry occurs in 100% of humans so don't be too alarmed. In your case, it looks as if your upper face is fairly even in terms of width at your cheeks. It is lower on your jawline that you see some disharmony. Sometimes this disharmony is simply related to the fact that you chew your food only on one side making the masseter muscle stronger on that side. This can be treated by chewing your food on both sides. This can also be treated by using Botox or Dysport injections to atrophy the thicker muscle. In other cases, the disharmony is related to the fact that your facial skeleton developed asymmetrically. This is harder to treat, but there are both nonsurgical and surgical options. In more rare cases, patients develop normally but then start to have a wasting phenomenon called Romberg's disease that needs aggressive reconstructive surgery to manage. A referral to a plastic surgeon for evaluation can help. Good luck, Dr. Shah
