One of the most visible and prominent portions of the face is the nose, and if you have imperfections or aspects of your nose that you do not like, makeup can only go so far to contour and mask undesired features. Rhinoplasty is a more effective and permanent solution to problems you may have with your nose, and it is capable of accomplishing a lot more than makeup is able to. If your nose is too small, rhinoplasty can make it larger. Too large? Rhinoplasty can make the nose smaller. If you don’t like the angle of your nose; want to alter the tip of your nose; or if you have bumps, indentations, or other defects, rhinoplasty can be used to treat all of these complaints.

What is Rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty is a surgery done to alter the nose to look more attractive and to better complement your face. The surgery is performed by a surgeon who makes incisions inside the nose to access the bones and cartilage, and due to the nature of these incisions they are invisible after surgery. Depending on the desired result the surgeon then removes bone and cartilage or adds tissue. The healing process can take some time, but the end result is well worth the wait.
In the past ethnic rhinoplasty was done to give patients a more Western-looking nose, but today the surgery is performed in a way that enhances the appearance of the nose while maintaining ethnic features. You are able to change the way your nose looks to become more attractive according to your standards without losing any ethnic distinction. Some ethnicities are more susceptible to scarring and therefore your surgeon will consult with you about the best course of action to take. Call today to schedule a consultation!
After a primary nose job, some patients are unhappy with their results either going too far or not far enough. This can occur during ethnic rhinoplasty as well, due to the fact that anatomical variation can pose a particular problem when rhinoplasty is performed. Sometimes patients need a second rhinoplasty surgery to correct something that occurred during the healing process, not during the initial surgery. If this sounds like an experience that happened to you, you may be a candidate for revision rhinoplasty. Revision rhinoplasty is a particularly complex surgery and can only be performed by a board certified plastic surgeon.
