Plastic Surgery Procedures - Rhinoplasty - Nose Job


While the shape of your nose is usually the result of heredity,

the appearance may have been altered in an injury or during

prior surgery.  Also known as rhinoplasty, surgery of the nose

improves the appearance and proportion of your nose,

enhancing facial harmony and self confidence.

Surgery of the nose may also correct impaired breathing

caused by structural abnormalities in the nose.

What can surgery of the nose accomplish?

Rhinoplasty can change:

  1. Nose size, in relation to the other facial structures

  2. Nose width, at the bridge

  3. Nose profile, with visible humps or depressions on the bridge

  4. Nasal tip, that is large or bulbous, drooping, or too upturned

  5. Nostrils that are large, wide or upturned

  6. Nasal asymmetry and deviation

Is it right for me?

Nose surgery is a highly individualized procedure and you should do it for yourself, not to fulfill someone else’s desires or to try to fit any sort of ideal image. Surgery of the nose is a good option for you if:

  1. Your facial growth is complete and you are 13 years of age or older

  2. You are physically healthy

  3. You stop smoking

  4. You have specific, but realistic goals in mind for the improvement of your appearance
