Expert Insight

A Passion for Rhinoplasty

Because reshaping the nose is one of the most complex of all facial procedures, Dr. Godin says he could never get bored doing it. “It’s endlessly fascinating to me. It is also the most unforgiving of all cosmetic procedures, so you must go to someone who knows what he’s doing and has enough experience,” he says. The challenging nature of rhinoplasty has led Dr. Godin to his current project, a major new textbook, Rhinoplasty: Cases and Techniques (left), written for surgeons. The book has just been published and contains case studies from him and other surgeons from around the world. “For me this is a labor of love,” he says.

The Micro-Mini LiftTM

Unhappy with the jowling in her lower face and skin lax­ity, this 46-year-old patient sought a less invasive solution. “Through years of work, I have developed a modification of the facelift, called the Micro-Mini Lift* (MML), which is appropriate for patients with a small amount of excess skin in the jawline and/or minor looseness of the neck,” Dr. Godin says. Shown 16 days after a MML with neck lipo­suction, the patient looks noticeably more youthful.

Practicing for nearly 18 years, Dr. Godin focuses solely on facial cosmetic procedures—providing his patients with confidence in their outcomes. At his AAAHC -accredited facility, he takes a personal approach when consulting with patients to understand not only their desired results but the concerns and motivations behind them. “I spend time with my patients and get to know them,” Dr. Godin says. “That way we can have a thorough understanding of what the goals are.”
