“Like congestion from an allergy or cold, some people might view all nasal breathing problems as temporary—some are, many require specialized surgery.” As a board-certified facial plastic surgeon and ENT (Otolarnyngologist) dedicated to long-term results, Dr. Raval wants prospective patients with persistent breathing difficulty to be informed: “There many nasal-specific causes, but few adequately trained surgeons that a patient can identify to help solve the problem and improve their life.” One of the most common causes is from a phenomenon many people have never heard of; the nasal valve.
The passage of time cannot be prevented, but the process of aging can be slowed. Knowing the internal and external factors that speed up the aging process allowed Dr. Raval to compile this simple list for your aesthetic health. He hopes this list helps his new and loyal patients to preserve and protect their natural youth.
Although some view plastic surgery as dramatic, unrealistic, and vain, others—like Dr. Raval supports cosmetic surgeries as moderate, natural, and healthy procedures for patients with the right expectations. In a recent column, Huffington Post writer, Kristen Houghton supported Dr. Raval’s professional view in a natural aesthetic, saying she doesn’t “want to make a drastic change; I just want to look fresh and healthy.” Ms. Houghton, like many of Dr. Raval’s patients, have learned that not only are natural, healthy-looking procedures available with the right surgeon, but also that each procedure is as unique as the patient. Knowing that your facelift, eyelid lift, or other surgical treatment is uniquely your own allows you to see the myth of the “dramatic, unrealistic, and vain surgery.” Through individual consultation and deep expertise, Dr. Raval supports surgery only as a positive option for his patients’ appearance, health, and self-image. Ms. Houghton is a good example of the patient with realistic expectations.
