Nasal Surgery

When a patient’s nose is irregularly shaped or out of proportion with the face, nose contouring surgery or rhinoplasty can correct the problem and restore a positive self-image. In consultation, your surgeon will take photos and convert the image to demonstrate projected results, from minor tweaks to major changes.

Rhinoplasty incisions are concealed inside the nose, along the fleshy skin separating the nostrils, or along the seam where the outer nostril meets the face and are virtually undetectable. Patients will wear a protective splint on the nose, usually for a week after surgery.
