Meet the Doctor
Dr. Mike Majmundar’s practice is unique in that it focuses exclusively on plastic surgery of the face, head and neck. As a double board certified facial plastic surgeon, his complete approach to facial aesthetics promotes healthy skin, youthful contours, and natural results, without appearing “done” or artificial.
No Scar Rhinoplasty Atlanta
Dr. Mike Majmundar, double board certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, performs no scar rhinoplasty for the residents of Atlanta, Sandy Springs and the surrounding communities in Georgia.
Every year in Atlanta and the rest of the country, over half a million people are interested in rhinoplasty, or improving the appearance of their nose. But in Atlanta and elsewhere, one thing is clear: nothing has a greater impact on how a person looks than the size and shape of the nose.
Dr. Mike Majmundar is one of only a few surgeons in Atlanta, and in Georgia, who can perform his rhinoplasties using a no scar approach (No Scar Rhinoplasty). The advantages of a no scar rhinoplasty, also known as closed, or endo-nasal rhinoplasty, is decreased recovery time, swelling, and time under anesthesia. Some noses require much more work, or may be difficult to sculpt, using a no scar or “closed” approach; as a result, a small horizontal incision may be required between the nostrils. This incision heals very well, but we prefer to avoid incisions, if possible.
Is a No Scar Rhinoplasty For You?
Skin type, ethnic background, age, and parts of the nose to be altered are important factors to be considered in discussions with Dr. Majmundar prior to your no scar rhinoplasty. A young patient must reach full growth, usually around age fourteen or fifteen, prior to having rhinoplasty, though sometimes exceptions are made. As we age, the nasal tip tends to droop, the tip widens, and the hump on the nose enlarges, which can affect not only appearance, but also breathing.
Before deciding on rhinoplasty, ask if any additional surgery might be recommended to enhance the appearance of your face or neck. Many patients have chin augmentation or eyelid surgery in conjunction with rhinoplasty to create a better balance of features.
Making The Decision For No Scar Rhinoplasty
Whether the rhinoplasty is desired for functional or cosmetic reasons, in Atlanta or elsewhere, your choice of a qualified facial plastic surgeon is of paramount importance. Dr. Majmundar is double board certified in otolaryngology-head and neck surgery, as well as facial plastic and reconstructive surgery, which provides you, the patient, with the highest level of training and expertise. He is also one of only a few surgeons who can perform a no scar rhinoplasty in Atlanta, the state of Georgia, or in the Southeast. Dr. Majmundar will examine the structure of your nose, both externally and internally, to evaluate what you can expect from rhinoplasty and whether or not you are a candidate for a no scar rhinoplasty. You will more likely to be pleased with the results of your surgery if you have a realistic idea of what nasal surgery can, and cannot, do for you. We perform all of our surgeries in accredited outpatient surgery centers in Atlanta and surrounding areas, and we only use board certified MD anesthesiologists for your safety.
Understanding No Scar Rhinoplasty
The incisions are made inside the nose so that there are no scars on the face. Next, certain amounts of underlying bone and cartilage are removed, added to, or supported, to provide a newly shaped nasal structure. The tissues are then redraped over the new frame and the incisions are closed. A splint is applied to the outside of the nose to help retain the new shape while the nose heals.
What To Expect After No Scar Rhinoplasty
In the immediate days following your rhinoplasty, you may experience bruising and minor swelling in the eye area. Applying cold compresses and keeping the head elevated often reduces the swelling, bruising and discomfort. The nasal splint is removed seven days after surgery, at which time you will see your new nose. Recovery, on average, varies from 7 to 10 days
Recovery: On average, 7 to 10 days, with pain medications needed the first 1-2 nights
