Rhinoplasty

There's more to a nose job than your nose.

Should you get a “nose-job”?

You’ve thought about your nose way too much —  just about everyone agrees.  You should… you shouldn’t.  What’s the right answer?

Well, that depends solely upon you.

Rhinoplasty is designed to improve the appearance of the nose by reshaping the underlying cartilage and bone. Cosmetic rhinoplasty can reduce or increase the size of the nose, change the shape of the tip or bridge, narrow the span of the nostrils, or change the angle between the nose and upper lip. Nasal surgery may also correct a birth defect or injury. If the nose is twisted or crooked, or if airway problems exist, reconstructive surgery may involve modification of the nasal septum. According to The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery National Data Bank Statistics, nearly 150,000 rhinoplasty procedures were performed last year.

If enhancing your appearance and self-confidence is most important to you, then thinking carefully about your expectations for Rhinoplasty is crucial in discussing various options with your surgeon.
