The nose is a very important part of the face and it is vital that the rhinoplasty be performed in a way that best suits the patient’s individual needs.

Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) November 29, 2013

Professional hockey is known to be a rough sport and fighting among players of opposing teams is nothing new. But when Buffalo Sabres player Patrick Kaleta was involved in a brutal battle on the ice in October, the 27-year-old hockey star suffered more than just a 10-game suspension. Kaleta says that the fight was the “last straw” for his already damaged nose, and he took advantage of the time off from hockey to undergo a rhinoplasty, commonly known as a nose job. At The Institute for Rhinoplasty & Nasal Reconstruction, Dr. Babak Azizzadeh performs rhinoplasty in Beverly Hills on patients looking to improve the aesthetics and functionality of their nose.

Nasal reconstruction surgery is common for those who have suffered serious trauma to their nose. After years of being a professional hockey player, it’s not surprising that Patrick Kaleta underwent a rhinoplasty to correct the damage done to his nose,” explained Dr. Azizzadeh.

Although Kaleta had the time to undergo the rhinoplasty due to his suspension from playing, he claims that he would have found the time to get the procedure done regardless. As a result of his rhinoplasty, Kaleta says that not only has his nose been straightened, but he can also breathe much better as well. The ability to perform a rhinoplasty that is both aesthetically pleasing and functional is not easy. It takes an expert rhinoplasty surgeon to be able to correct problems in the nose in a way that fits the patient’s face and improves their breathing capability.

“The nose is a very important part of the face and it is vital that the rhinoplasty be performed in a way that best suits the patient’s individual needs,” says Dr. Azizzadeh.
