Dr. David A. Hecht Leads the Way for Rhinoplasty Surgery in the Valley
Dr. David A. Hecht’s special interest in rhinoplasty, combined with his dual training in Facial Plastic Surgery and Otolaryngology, Head & Neck Surgery, enables him to aesthetically and strategically manage both “Form and Function” of the nose for each patient. After training with two world-renowned facial plastic surgeons, Dr. Dean Toriumi and Dr. Eugene Tardy, Dr. Hecht quickly rose to the forefront of rhinoplasty surgery. Dr. Hecht’s strong reputation and prestigious training have earned him much acclaim and many patient referrals from numerous plastic surgeons and otolaryngologists throughout the country. As a leader in this area, he lends his skills to fellow surgeons by teaching them about the latest techniques in rhinoplasty and serves as a mentor to his peers on challenging cases.
A unique approach to rhinoplasty
Dr. Hecht’s approach to rhinoplasty is not only cosmetic, it is functional. The nose serves a purpose in healthy breathing, so any obstruction, whether from birth, injury or previous surgery, can be problematic. Unlike some surgeons, Dr. Hecht focuses on conserving and reshaping cartilage whenever possible, rather than concentrating on excision. By meticulously preserving the nasal structures and using diligent graft work, Dr. Hecht is able to help prevent nasal collapse and breathing difficulties, which minimizes the need for revision surgery. Cosmetically, Dr. Hecht focuses on the entire shape of the nose and offers realistic recommendations for overall nasal and facial balance. He prefers a natural, “non-operated” look, focusing on realistic expectations. Dr. Hecht personally evaluates and manages each patient’s care. He openly discusses goals, benefits and limitations with every patient to ensure comprehensive understanding of the procedure prior to surgery.
