Every cosmetic surgeon at Strax Rejuvenation takes their commitment to their profession and their patients so seriously it could fairly be described as "passion." This month, Strax Rejuvenation is proud to highlight one of these passionate physicians, Dr. Melih Erogul, one of our specialists in rhinoplasty and one of the professionals who have made Strax Rejuvenation the premier cosmetic surgery facility in South Florida!
Dr. Erogul has been practicing cosmetic medicine with an emphasis in rhinoplasty and reconstructive surgery for over thirty-six years. A graduate of Wayne State University, he later achieved a fellowship in cosmetic surgery at Straith Hospital in Michigan. Following his schooling and fellowship, he entered private practice in the Detroit, Michigan area, where he remained for the next thirty years. Then he moved south to Florida, where he became a valued and respected member of the Strax Rejuvenation staff.
Rhinoplasty, or the surgical shaping of the nose, is Dr. Erogul's particular passion. In his own words, "The best rhinoplasty is...good-looking and anatomically correct." Dr. Erogul places such emphasis on the nose and the importance of aesthetically pleasing contours because "when you look at a person, the very first thing you see on the face [is] the nose." This makes the nose very important both from a biological and aesthetic standpoint, because a disproportionate or badly scarred or injured nose appears less appealing and can leave an otherwise attractive person's face looking unbalanced or even misshapen.
The concept behind rhinoplasty is very simple. By removing excess tissue or reshaping and contouring the cartilage and skin that gives the nose its shape, a surgeon can change the entire appearance of a patient's face, making the eyes more prominent and the overall lines appear more angular and balanced. Rhinoplasty is a common procedure among people who play a lot of sports, MMA fighters and boxers after their retirement and as a reconstructive option for people whose noses have been injured or disfigured by all manner of accidents.
Rhinoplasty is one of the oldest modern cosmetic surgical procedures, at nearly 200 years old. It takes its name from the Latin root "rhino," meaning "nose," and the root suffix "plasty," from the word "plastic," "capable of being shaped or molded." It is one of the most popular invasive cosmetic techniques on the market today, eclipsed only by procedures such as breast enhancement. While rhinoplasty is overwhelmingly more popular among women, the number of men undergoing this procedure has increased dramatically in the last two decades, and there is no sign that this trend will end any time soon.
Patients who wonder about rhinoplasty might consider Cassandra, who described her experience with Strax Rejuvenation this way. "I'd taken a lot of trauma to my nose...due to injury...from sports... When I found the right doctor, I wished I'd done it sooner! ...I didn't want a completely reconstructed face. I just wanted the break corrected." Dr. Erogul concurs completely. "A surgeon's primary job," he stated, "is to discuss the outcomes with the patient and as a surgeon, promise what you can do for the patient."
Dr. Erogul places a high premium on the patient's comfort and care before, during, and after the procedure, as Strax Rejuvenation’s entire cosmetic practitioners do. This not only ensures minimal healing time and natural-looking results, but creates a genuine bond of respect and trust between our physicians and clients. Cassandra said, "The healing time was minimal... If you just walked up to me on the street, it's not something you would know [I had done]."
