Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. La Nasa Jr "The ideal aesthetic result brings the undesirable feature into a reasonable proportional balance to the rest of the face, the feature itself, e.g. the nose, and the patient's overall size and age. Modern techniques should allow for a minimum of post-operative swelling, bruising,& pain. The easiest to appreciate is the lack of nasal packing after rhinoplasty."
