Choosing the right procedure
When deciding to move forward with plastic surgery, one of the most important decisions is to choose the correct surgical procedure done by a board-certified plastic surgeon. During your consultation with Dr. Panossian, he will listen to the details of your request and offer the best options currently available to meet your goals. The consultation is done in a relaxed atmosphere and with utmost discretion. If you forget to ask a question or wish to get more information, Dr. Panossian will be happy to answer your questions directly.
Dr. Panossian specializes in both open and closed rhinoplasty techniques to reshape the nose. Special attention is given to reduction of a dorsal hump, refinement of the tip, and narrowing the nose if necessary. A simultaneous advantage is the improvement of breathing mechanics. This is addressed in each and every rhinoplasty. This is one of the most common procedures performed by Dr. Panossian.
FACIAL PLASTIC SURGERY
Facial plastic surgery includes face lift, brow lift, neck lift, eyelid lift (blepharoplasty), and placement of facial implants (chin, cheek, lips). The goal in all of these instances is to restore a youthful look. Other procedures such as facial liposuction or fat injection are used to contour the face and restore facial proportions. Non-surgical options such as Botox, Juvederm, Restylane, Voluma, and other facial fillers are used to reduce wrinkles and restore volume lost by aging. They may be preferred by individuals seeking only a subtle to moderate change.
Revision rhinoplasty is corrective surgery to repair and/or improve the result of previous nose surgery. These are more complex than first-time, or primary, rhinoplasty procedures and require a higher level of expertise. Dr. Panossian’s background in craniofacial surgery and extensive experience in revision rhinoplasty make him a preferred choice if you are looking at improving the results from previous rhinoplasty.
Whether you are looking for breast augmentation, breast reduction, breast lift, or correction of inverted nipples, Dr. Panossian performs a wide variety of procedures to improve the appearance and youthfulness of breasts. Women after childbirth can experience drastic changes in the volume and sagginess of the breasts. In these instances, a breast lift combined with augmentation can restore the breast to its pre-pregnancy appearance or better. Dr. Panossian also performs surgery to correct breast development in men, called gynecomastia.
Different ethnicities require different considerations for rhinoplasty. An ethnic rhinoplasty preserves the features of one’s heritage while improving upon the appearance of the nose. Special consideration is given to anatomical variations that are present such as thickness of skin and individual proportions. Dr. Panossian’s patients come from not only the ethnically diverse greater Los Angeles area but from all parts of the world.
Body contouring involves removing unwanted skin and/or fat from the abdominal region, arms, legs, or buttock area. This encompasses a wide range of procedures including tummy tuck, body lift, liposuction, buttock augmentation (Brazilian butt lift), arm lift, and thigh lift. Breast surgery combined with a tummy tuck is a commonly requested procedure that is referred to as a “mommy makeover.” Liposuction is an important technique applied to most body contouring procedures, either alone or in conjunction with the procedures above.
