As a cosmetic and reconstructive board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Roger J. Oldham has seen trends in plastic surgery develop over time. Among these, is the yearly increase in breast augmentation, the most popular surgery among American women. Second only to breast augmentation, however, is Rhinoplasty. Dr. Oldham performs surgeries that treat several regions of the body and aims to please patients who are dissatisfied with their appearance. Young women in particular can be self-conscious about their bodies as the self-confidence and self-image of advanced adulthood has yet to solidify. Rhinoplasty, for example, is most common in young women ages 19-29.
Rhinoplasty (reshaping of the nose) is the second most popular surgery among American women with nearly 190,000 women being treated in 2010 alone. Dr. Oldham understands this trend to be informed by the ways in which a disproportional nose can appear to offset other facial features and patients who are dissatisfied become fixed on the nose as the source of their discontent. Rhinoplasty surgery can be ideal for younger patients but can also be performed after the mid teenage years on individuals of any ethnic background as seen in these images before and after nose reshaping rhinoplasty with Dr. Oldham.
