The peri-pyriform implant can be an extremely important addition to rhinoplasty. Through a very detailed consultation, including analysis with photographs and a physical examination, I explained to this 30 year-old patient that her lower nose is actually sunken into her face a small amount.  This is caused by a mild skeletal deficiency called peri-pyriform deficiency, which results in under-projection of the upper jaw. Similar to the way an implant can be placed to enhance an under-projecting chin, a wonderful silicone implant made especially for this purpose can be placed to correct peri-pyriform deficiency. The implant is positioned under the upper lip, filling the deficiency and raising the nose back to a normal position in a very natural way.  At the same time the implant was placed, other subtle aesthetic changes were made to her nose through rhinoplasty, and she is thrilled with all aspects of her procedure.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

We are excited to announce our reopening as of May 1st. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: Our commitment to your safety.

Consultations are available in our office and we will continue to offer Virtual Consultations as well. You will be asked to complete your registration paperwork in our secure patient portal prior to your appointment and your consultation fee will be collected by phone to minimize contact.

Here are a few changes we have made as we transition to this new era:

  • Please reschedule your appointment if you are not feeling well, have a fever, have been exposed to anyone with Covid-19 or travelled internationally within the last month.
  • We will limit the number of people in the building and waiting area to maintain social distancing and our staff will be wearing masks until restrictions are eased.
  • Please wear a mask during your visit but do not wear gloves. You will be given hand sanitizer.
