There is no such thing as “one-surgery-fits-all” at ESK. Dr. Kwak tailors his technique to the needs and desires of each individual, ensuring a unique, pleasing result that appears refreshingly natural.
Due to the complexities of corrective surgery where scarring and functional mishaps are commonplace, the doctor may employ the use of grafts or implants, and the procedure may last longer than the original surgery, sometimes up to 3 or 4 hours.
Dr. Kwak will recommend either an open or closed procedure for his revision rhinoplasty New York patients, depending on specific circumstances and anatomy. A closed rhinoplasty is generally less invasive with less downtown, but it may not afford the surgeon the freedom of an open rhinoplasty, which includes a minor incision to the columella (cartilage separating the nostrils).
ESK clients can expect to undergo general anesthesia, administered by one of Dr. Kwak’s experienced and friendly board-certified anesthesiologists. The surgery is performed in either an accredited ambulatory surgery center, or at an NYC affiliated hospital.
