Nose Reshaping (Rhinoplasty)

The nose is a distinguishing part of the face. The complexity and natural beauty of its shape and structure can make such an impression that it may be the way people remember you. Sometimes it can be easy to think that the nose we were given at birth is the nose we think we are stuck with for the rest of our lives. For others, genetic abnormalities, accidents causing physical deformity and health problems or other internal structural problems leave them with a nose that, many times, negatively affects the way others perceive them, and even the way they live their lives. A rhinoplasty procedure can often help make both the appearance and function of the nose better.

What You Need To Know About Rhinoplasty

More commonly referred to as nose reshaping, rhinoplasty is a cosmetic and facial plastic surgery procedure designed to either help you reach the aesthetic goals you have for your nose and face, improve nasal function or correct abnormalities that are otherwise unchangeable. Either in combination with other facial procedures in order to acheive an even more proportionate look, or by itself to achieve your desired goal, an experienced facial plastic surgeon will carefully sculpt the nasal structure in order to give it the shape that best fits your face and helps improve breathing and overall function. Most incisions (in what is known as seamless rhinoplasty) are placed inside the nose where they are least visible. This procedure allows for no visible external scars and discomfort is minimized with the contemporary techniques. Typical recovery is about a week and the procedure, which takes 1-2 hours, is outpatient.

Who is a Good Candidate?

  • Women and Men
  • Age 18 to 65 (or older if you are healthy)
  • Non-smokers
  • Generally in good health
  • Desires nasal reshaping and improved function/breathing
