Dr. Jay Pensler MD is a Harvard trained Chicago board certified plastic surgeon who specializes in surgery of the face, breast and body. Dr. Pensler has performed hundreds of rhinoplasty plastic surgery procedures. Depending on your unique rhinoplasty surgical outcome the plastic surgeon offers two types of rhinoplasty surgery techniques (both of which are completely tailored to the patient’s unique desire):

Open Rhinoplasty Plastic Surgery: With the open rhinoplasty surgery technique the plastic surgeon makes an incision in the vertical strip of skin of the nose (the area which separates the nostrils). The skin and tissue are then lifted from the underlying structure so the anatomy (cartilage, bone and soft tissue) of the nasal area is exposed and can be worked on. This rhinoplasty technique is performed for major nose reshaping.

Closed Rhinoplasty Plastic Surgery: With a close rhinoplasty technique the plastic surgeon separates the skin of the nose from the underlying bone and cartilage after all incisions are made inside the nose. This technique leaves no visible scars. With this technique, the cartilage and bone can then be removed, reshaped, or rearranged, depending on the unique and highly customized procedure you are undergoing. Whether you are a candidate for closed rhinoplasty will be discussed with you during your consultation.

Great Job!!!! And Great Staff!!!!!I have a new nose (rhinoplasty) and no baggy bags under my lid (blepharoplasty) , it’s the new me!!!!! The office in Gold Coast was great, the price was reasonable, and the doctor even called multiple times after my plastic surgery. Really postive experience ~ RateMDs

A critical step for a successful and predictable rhinoplasty surgical outcome is a clear understanding based on the dynamics of the plastic surgery procedure. It is essential for the plastic surgeon to understand which part of the nasal framework controls each zone of the nose and for the patient and plastic surgeon to have a mutually agreed-upon goal for surgical improvement.

Rhinoplasty surgery entails re-shaping the nose by reducing or increasing the size of the nose. This may involve removing the hump, changing the shape of the tip or bridge of the nose, narrowing the width of the nostrils, or changing the angle between the nose and the upper lip.

You may be a good candidate for Rhinoplasty Surgery if you wish to correct:

  • A nose that is either too large or too small
  • A nose where the bridge is too wide
  • A nose that is asymmetrical due to birth
  • A nose that is misshapen or crooked due to injury
  • A nose with a malformed tip
  • A nose that is crooked
  • A nose with a hump
  • An obstructed (blocked) nasal airway is causing problems with breathing through the nose

Please Note: Dr. Pensler takes photographs of you during your consultation and uses computer imaging to simulate an approximate surgical result – which you can see during your consultation. In addition, Dr. Pensler will show you preoperative and postoperative photographs of other patients during your rhinoplasty consultation.
