Rhinoplasty

A disproportionate, crooked, or upturned nose can disrupt the balance of your facial features and make you feel self-conscious.

Rhinoplasty corrects cosmetic concerns, but it can also improve breathing in patients with nasal trauma or a deviated septum.

Why should I consider rhinoplasty?

Safe Treatment with Life-Changing Benefits

Transformative Results

Your nose is the central focal point of your face. Even slight surgical alterations can have a dramatic impact on symmetry and your overall facial appearance.

Popular and Safe

Over 200,000 nose reshaping surgeries were performed in 2017. Meanwhile, the risk of complications is low.

Improved Breathing

For patients struggling with a deviated septum or other nasal trauma, rhinoplasty may be the best way to help you breathe comfortably and properly.

Does Rhinoplasty Hurt?

The American Academy of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery found that most patients who undergo rhinoplasty report experiencing only minimal to moderate pain. Discomfort usually lasts only 36 to 72 hours. Your doctor can prescribe pain medication to minimize discomfort during this time.

A Nonsurgical Alternative

If you have minor aesthetic concerns and do not feel ready for surgery, your doctor may be able to meet your goals using dermal fillers. He or she can improve the shape of your nose by injecting fillers into an area affected by injury, a crooked nasal tip, or a flattened nasal bridge. Fillers cannot be used to create a smaller nose or improve your breathing. It is also important to understand that the results of dermal fillers are temporary, and if you want more extensive changes, rhinoplasty may be the only option.

Rhinoplasty has helped many patients transform their features and improve their self-confidence. To find out how rhinoplasty can help you, schedule a consultation with your surgeon today.
