About the operation The nose is the most defining characteristic of the face, and a small alteration can make a big difference. In rhinoplasty, the bone and cartilage of the nose are carefully shaped to provide a pleasing appearance. Our physicians pay particular attention to both function and aesthetics— improvement in appearance and breathing is always our ultimate goal. Our physicians also perform revision procedures.
Is It Right For You? Preoperative rhinoplasty patients should carefully consider what changes they desire from the operation. The more specific you can be regarding what you like (and don’t like), the better our physicians can advise you about postoperative expectations. Frequently, the nose is made smaller, the bone and cartilage straightened, and/or the tip is narrowed to enhance appearance.
Having cosmetic nasal surgery is a big decision. After careful examination, our physicians will counsel you extensively and provide various surgical options. If the procedure is right for you, they will advise you what to expect in the days and weeks following the surgery. After the operation, patients are seen for several months to monitor their progress and document healing.
