Enhancing Facial Harmony through Nasal Reshaping

Rhinoplasty is a facial plastic surgery procedure where the structures of the nose are changed to help patients who do not like the appearance of their nose or those who have breathing concerns. Rhinoplasty is one of the most popular procedures in plastic surgery, which is understandable since the nose is the most prominent feature on a person’s face.

Rhinoplasty allows the patient to have their nose refined and reshaped to help accentuate their other features and to balance their overall facial aesthetics.

Before and After Photos

What is a Rhinoplasty?

A rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure performed by an experienced licensed cosmetic plastic surgeon to enhance and improve the appearance and function of the nose. Improving the aesthetics of the nose as well as its function of breathing has drastic benefits to the patient ranging from improved self-confidence  to better exercise tolerance and improved quality of life.

Benefits

When performing a rhinoplasty, the surgeon will change the shape, size,  and proportions of the nose to enhance the patients’ overall facial aesthetics. Patients who undergo rhinoplasty surgery will see improved balance and harmony of their facial features, specifically the relationship of the eyes to the nose and the nose to the lips.

Often times rhinoplasty surgery is performed in combination with other procedures like chin augmentation or sub-mental liposuction in order to provide a nicely balanced profile and defined jawline.

One of our experienced rhinoplasty surgeon will examine the nasal passages during the consultation and make sure that any deviation or structure causing obstruction would be addressed during the surgery, allowing the patients to have improved breathing function.

Nose Surgery Types

Cosmetic Rhinoplasty

A cosmetic rhinoplasty is performed when the patient does not have any breathing issues and wants to focus solely on cosmetic changes to the nose

Septorhinoplasty

A septorhinoplasty is a combined procedure addressing both function and aesthetics. The “septo” portion will address a deviated septum or other obstruction issues while the “rhinoplasty” portion will address the cosmetic changes the patient requests.

Revision Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty surgery is one of the most technically difficult procedures and even in the best of hands there can be times when revision surgery may be required. Revision rhinoplasty can be performed to address aesthetic changes as well as functional concerns.

Nasal Reconstruction

Some patients experience  trauma to the nose or are genetically born with disfigured nasal structures, tThis can result in a severely deviated or crooked nose. Reconstruction involves a more extensive surgery and sometimes requires the need for obtaining cartilage from the patient’s ear or rib cartilage.

Is Nose Surgery Right for Me?

An average of over 220,000 rhinoplasty or nose job procedures are performed a year, making rhinoplasty surgery one of the most popular and highly desired procedures performed in plastic surgery today.

Rhinoplasty surgery helps many patients improve their self esteem, thus providing the patients with a better quality of life.

 

Rhinoplasty surgery is a personal choice for patients who would like to make a change to the appearance of their nose by refining or reshaping it to balance their facial features. For many patients this can include reducing the dorsal hump, refining a bulbous tip, addressing the projection of the nose, shortening or rotating a droopy tip, or fixing functional concerns.   In the era of selfies and social media postings patients often complain about the appearance of their nose. Men and women of all ages who look in the mirror and feel unsatisfied with their nasal features are rhinoplasty candidates.
