Dr. Grigoryants specializes in closed or scarless rhinoplasty (nose reshaping or nose job). Rhinoplasty is performed to improve the shape of the nose and in many patients to improve breathing. Dr. Grigoryants performs endonasal (closed) rhinoplasty to avoid unpredictable scarring on the nose. He places incisions inside the nose so that no scar will be present across the bottom portion of the nose. Dr. Grigoryants performs open rhinoplasty in some cases of complex revisions. In some patients, rhinoplasty is combined with chin augmentation to improve facial appearance and balance. Our photo gallery and instagram page has many examples of these procedures.
Dr. Grigoryants' ethnic mix of patients is diverse including Caucasian, Middle eastern, Hispanic, Asian, and African American ethnicities as his patients come to him for rhinoplasty not only from Los Angeles but also from various parts of the world. Certain nasal anatomy traits and skin thickness variations exist among different ethnic groups. These should be taken into account when performing ethnic rhinoplasty to achieved desired results. Your nasal anatomy and skin thickness will be discussed with you during your consultation.
Is performed along with cosmetic nose reshaping (rhinoplasty) or alone in patients who are mainly interested in improving nasal airway patency. Mechanical nasal airway obstruction can be caused by a deviated septum, enlarged turbinates, and narrow internal nasal valve. To open nasal airways, Dr. Grigoryants performs septoplasty, turbinate reduction, and nasal valve repair. Dr. Grigoryants performs functional rhinoplasty using closed (scarless) technique. He does not use nasal packing after surgery.
Many men present to Dr. Grigoryants for rhinoplasty. Some men who undergo nose reshaping prefer to maintain a masculine appearance of the nose including having a straight profile and not raising the tip above 90 degrees. Other male patients prefer to have a slightly sloped profile with a supratip break and the tip raised to about 95 degrees. Dr. Grigoryants will discuss the goals of rhinoplasty with each patient in detail and decide with the patient what shape of the nose will better suit their face.
Patients undergoing facial feminization have turned to Dr. Grigoryants for nose feminization surgery, also known as transgender rhinoplasty. The shape of the nose greatly contributes to the overall feminization of the face. In general, to give the nose a more feminine shape, Dr. Grigoryants may need reduce the dorsal hump, narrow the tip of the nose if wide, raise the tip of the nose to 95-100 degrees, and reduced the width of the nostrils. As part of feminization (transgender) rhinoplasty, Dr. Grigoryants will also open the nasal airway.
Revision rhinoplasty is commonly performed by Dr. Grigoryants. He performs revision rhinoplasty using closed and open rhinoplasty techniques. In some patients who do not have enough septal cartilage left, an ear cartilage may need to be used for nasal reconstruction. Not every patient would be a candidate for revision rhinoplasty. Patients with much scarring and thick skin are less likely to benefit from additional surgery.
Dr. Grigoryants performs breast augmentation, breast reduction, and breast lift. In women with sagging breasts, breast lift will improve the shape and position of the breasts. Breast lift may be performed alone or combined with breast augmentation. Many women who are bothered by large and heavy breasts benefit from breast reduction. This procedure reduces the size of the breasts and lifts the breasts at the same time. For breast augmentation, Dr. Grigoryants uses silicone or saline implants. He also performs breast revision surgery and treats patients with breast implant illness.
Is used to remove excess skin and fat in the abdominal area. During a tummy tuck loose abdominal muscles are tightened to further flatten the abdomen. Liposuction is frequently combined with tummy tuck procedures to remove fat excess from the flanks, thighs, arms, or back. Dr. Grigoryants places the tummy tuck incision in such a fashion so that the scar can be easily hidden by underwear. Patients who do not have skin excess but primarily fat excess can be effectively treated by liposuction alone. Dr. Grigoryants performs an advanced tummy tuck procedure to produce best possible results.
Includes such procedures as face lift, neck lift, brow lift, eyelid surgery, and placement of chin implants. These procedures restore a more youthful appearance of the face. Face lift and neck lift procedures can also be combined with liposuction to remove fat excess in the face and neck. Non surgical facial rejuvenation utilizes such products as Botox, Jeuveau, Dysport, Restylane®, Juvederm, Voluma. Dr. Grigoryants also uses newer products such as Jeuveau (a toxin similar to Botox) and Versa (a hyaluronic acid filler). These injectables effectively reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles.
This patient underwent closed rhinoplasty to remove the dorsal hump and refine the tip, achieving a more feminine and natural result. The patient’s profile after surgery has a straight dorsum with a supratip break. Nasal deviation was improved and septoplasty was performed to treat the deviated septum and open the nasal airways.
