Primary Rhinoplasty

Finding Facial Harmony

Rhinoplasty, one of the most complex yet exciting procedures for a plastic surgeon, is a cosmetic surgery that can correct and reconstruct the nose, improving its functions, shape and contours. Primary rhinoplasty refers to the procedure carried out on a nose for the first time, as opposed to a revision (secondary) procedure. It can be performed to improve the overall appearance of the nose, as well as to correct birth deformities, trauma and breathing problems.

A life-enhancing procedure, one that Dr. Panayi feels particularly passionate about, rhinoplasty combines both art and science, making it one of the most challenging procedures to master. Given the delicate nature of the nose and the complexity of nasal anatomy, as well as the three-dimensional structural variability from one patient to another, a nose procedure requires obsessive attention to detail and expertise. Dr. Panayi’s expertise in the detailed analysis of all aspects of nasal anatomy, and his mastering of a variety of surgical techniques guarantee that the correct approach for every particular case is followed, leading to a successful outcome. This minimizes the risk of revision rhinoplasty, since even the slightest of changes in the anatomy of the nose can make a huge difference in its final functional and aesthetic structure.

Each operation is customized to each patient taking into account their particular anatomical features, as well as their needs and goals. Dr. Panayi is a firm believer in tailored solutions that fit the specific unique characteristics of every patient. In order to achieve this, a range of careful measurements is undertaken before the procedure, together with extensive photo-documentation of the target areas. Furthermore, Dr. Panayi always performs a pre-operative 3D simulation of the operation, so that you have a clear idea of what to expect after the procedure. Once your individual operative plan is completed, it is then followed diligently in the operating room. Performed with extraordinary attention to detail and an unparalleled artistic eye, Dr. Panayi takes special care to ensure minimal scarring and an exceptionally natural-looking end-result.
