The Right Nose for Each Face

|

Nose reshaping surgery, called rhinoplasty, is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the US. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, more than 220,000 people had rhinoplasty in the US last year - an increase from the previous year.

But no two nose jobs are the same.

Some nose surgery is done to repair breathing problems, or because of a traumatic nose injury. Others are done for aesthetic purposes, or a combination of reasons. Each nose surgery should be custom designed to look as natural as possible, taking into account factors such as ethnicity, proportion with other facial features, nostril size, bridge width, and much more.

At Savannah Plastic Surgery, we've performed many rhinoplasty procedures, and on a variety of patient types. If you're considering nose shaping surgery, you may find it helpful to explore our rhinoplasty page where you'll find information about the procedure as well as a 3-D animated video about nose surgery. We offer complimentary consultations for cosmetic surgery, so contact us if you'd like to set up an appointment to discuss rhinoplasty. We'd be happy to answer your questions, and we recognize that your surgery will be as unique as you are!


The Buddy System is Effective in Early Detection of Skin Cancer

|

A recent study showed success with early detection of skin cancer when partners were trained to check each other for warning signs of melanoma.

In the study, pairs of people were given specific training on recognizing skin concerns, like a change in the border, color and diameter of moles. During the 2-year study, 43 new melanomas were spotted by these skin check partners, who were able to alert a doctor and seek early treatment.

Melanoma is a serious concern, and the cancer rate is rising steadily. According to the American Cancer Society, more than 85,000 new melanomas will be diagnosed this year, and more than 9,000 people will likely die from melanoma.

But prevention and vigilance can be lifesavers. Here are some helpful resources from the American Cancer Society:

Learn to recognize the early warning signs of skin cancer, and partner with someone to check each other for skin changes. If you have questions about skin protection or reversing the effects of sun damage on your skin, contact our Skin Institute and Laser Center. And as always, if you're concerned about any suspicious areas on your skin, you should see your doctor.
