Nose Surgery (Rhinoplasty)

The nose is the centerpiece of the face. Achieving balance between the appearance of the nose and the surrounding bony structure is an important part of overall harmony in the face.

Rhinoplasty involves reducing prominent portions of the bony or cartilaginous structure of the nose. Rhinoplasty incision often involves placing grafts to improve contour of the “nose bridge “ or refinement of the the tip.

 Improve profile with even proportions between height and weight of the nose.
 Nasal tip that is enlarged or bulbous, drooping, upturned or hooked.
 Nostrils that are large, wide, or upturned.
 Nasal asymmetry.

Additionally breathing problems caused by abnormalities of the nasal passages can be addressed at the time of rhinoplasty with procedures such as spreader graft or other cartilaginous grafts. These grafts may be obtained from the nose itself, rib cartilage, or a small area behind the ears.
