Rhinoplasty Functional Considerations

Functional Rhinoplasty ConsiderationsPosted March 27th, 2018

Many people have difficulty breathing through the nose. Although inflammatory problems such as sinusitis, or nasal allergies can cause some of this, structural problems in the nose may also contribute. Many patients therefore consider undergoing rhinoplasty not only for cosmetic reasons, but also for nasal breathing and function. Dr. Bublik’s unique training which taught him the skill and art of achieving both functional and cosmetic results is employed in every case he does. This is one of the main reasons he is so highly sought after to perform both primary and revision rhinoplasty surgery.

Sinus Pressure and Pain

Posted March 1st, 2018

Swollen nasal passages and the build-up of mucus cause congestion. Swollen and inflamed tissues can also cause pressure on nerve endings around your sinuses and facial area. This leads to dull or throbbing pain and aches around the face, mostly above the eyes, below the eyes and in the back of the head.

Chin Augmenation Los AngelesChin Augmentation (Genioplasty)

Posted February 6th, 2018

Dr. Bublik explains that chin surgery can be effective for patients with a weak or receding chin, and for patients with a very prominent chin. A chin that seems too small in proportion to other facial features makes the nose appear overly long or prominent, or tends to give men an effeminate or weak appearance. Chins that seems too large or strong can make women feel less feminine, and can overpower a patient’s otherwise delicate facial features. The surgery can enhance facial symmetry by increasing or decreasing the size and projection of the patient’s chin. Dr. Bublik reshapes the chin either by using chin implants, or by repositioning the bone supporting the chin.

Face-lift - Everyone Ages Differently by Dr. Michael Bublik Los Angeles Facial Plastic Surgeon

Re-Post January 23rd, 2018

Dr. Michael Bublik, a double board certified physician in Facial Plastic Surgery and Ear, Nose, Throat Surgery, explains that facial aging is a multifactorial, 3D process with anatomic, biochemical, and genetic variables. Exposure to the sun, alcohol use, smoking, body mass index, medications, use of drugs, and other elements, contribute to facial aging changes.

Everyone ages differently. Some individuals manage to maintain their youthful good looks with minimal skin looseness, droopiness and sagging well into their 50s, while others are not so lucky.

Dr. Bublik clarifies that most of the aging changes occur in the midface, usually beginning in the mid-40s. Dr. Bublik’s patients first come to see him with concerns about under-eye bags and wrinkles, as well as smile lines - also known as nasolabial folds. These are the lines and creases that run from the side of the nose to the corner of the mouth, and are the result of normal loss of facial volume and skin elasticity as people age. The lines that run straight downwards from the corners of the mouth (marionette lines), are another sign of aging that frustrate many patients, as those lines can make them look unhappy. Marionette lines form as facial volume begins to lessen and deeper creases begin to form below the mouth.

Is it possible to develop an allergy as an Adult?

An allergy occurs when an otherwise harmless substance gets flagged as dangerous by the immune system, which then launches an attack. Common allergens include pet dander, pollen, grass, mold spores, dust mites and certain proteins found in foods. The symptoms can arise such as itchy eyes, runny nose and sneezing — are the result of your immune system ramping up to evict the perceived intruders.

Although adult-onset allergies are very common and can cause sinus headaches, nasal congestion, and overall lack of energy and a feeling of being sick. It can also lead to sinus infections, shortness of breath and can make asthma worse. The good news is that a simple test in our office can diagnose the cause of the allergy and we have a variety of state of the art treatment options available.

Rhinoplasty (Nose Surgery) for the Male Patient in Los Angeles /Glendale /Burbank /Pasadena/Encino

The reasons for surgery vary from patient to patient. Often there are functional, as well as aesthetic reasons that men undergo rhinoplasty surgery. For example, nasal injuries as a result of sports injuries; both the function and the external features of the nose can usually be returned to their pre-injury state through rhinoplasty without further changes. In some cases, improvement to patients’ breathing by fixing the deviated septum and structures around it can make a major difference in the quality of sleep and overall well-being. Nonetheless, changes for purely aesthetic purposes are frequently sought by men, and this type of male rhinoplasty is increasing.

Dr. Bublik emphasizes that appearance is extraordinarily powerful because it’s the first filter when meeting someone new, and that, whether we like it or not, we are being judged by our looks.

Turn Back the Clock with Botox and Dermal Fillers

When choosing between spending on designer shoes and getting a more attractive and rested appearance, women are opting for the latter.

Dr. Michael Bublik, a double board certified physician in Facial Plastic Surgery and Ear, Nose, Throat Surgery, is fond to say that many of his patients consider the cost of injectable dermal fillers and Botox a much better return on investment than buying new designer clothes or jewelry.  

While many of his patients in their 30s and 40s wouldn’t necessarily consider a facelift, they see their regular visits to Dr. Bublik for fillers and a touch of Botox as part of their regular beauty regime, much as they do haircuts, waxing and facials.  And Dr. Bublik is candid in saying that not all of his patients are high powered executives or celebrities, but regular women who know that a fancy new purse or watch can’t bring them the satisfaction of looking in the mirror and seeing a fresher and more attractive version of themselves.
