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.
Dr. Mike Majmundar, double board certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, performs 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, (nose surgery) to improve the appearance of their nose. Some are unhappy with the nose they were born with, and some with the way aging has changed their nose. For others, an injury may have distorted the nose, or the goal may be improved breathing or a functional rhinoplasty. 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. Because the nose is the most defining characteristic of the face, a slight alteration with a rhinoplasty can greatly improve one’s appearance. Rhinoplasty Infographic
Is Rhinoplasty For You?
Skin type, ethnic background, and age are important factors to be considered in discussions with Dr. Majmundar prior to your rhinoplasty. Before the nose is altered, a young patient must reach full growth, usually around age fourteen or fifteen. 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 a rhinoplasty to create a better balance of features.
Making The Decision For 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. Dr. Majmundar will examine the structure of your nose, both externally and internally, to evaluate what you can expect from rhinoplasty. You will more likely 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 Atlanta and surrounding areas in accredited outpatient surgery centers, and we only use board certified MD anesthesiologists for your safety.
The incisions are made inside the nose so that there are no scars on the face; uncommonly, a single small horizontal incision may have to be made in between the nostrils. Dr. Majmundar is one of only a few surgeons in Atlanta and in Georgia who performs his rhinoplasties using this approach (No Scar Rhinoplasty). 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 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 reduce 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 14 days.
Recovery: On average, 7 to 14 days, with pain medication for the first 1-2 nights
