"Santa Monica Rhinoplasty expert, Dr. Harold Clavin credits '90s advances in anesthesia as having had
the greatest impact on his "art". New techniques have
eliminated the need for intubation, which previously obstructed
the sculpting process. Clavin prides himself on the fact that
his patients experience minimal pain and discomfort, claiming
that they're often up and about in one to three days. As recently
as the mid-90's, much of his clientele-many in the entertainment
industry-still sought the perky American standard of beauty and
asked to have all traces of their ethnicity removed, but these
days, Clavin reports a return to confidence in one's origins.
His work sometimes involves restoring-even accentuating- characteristics
that were formerly eliminated."
