Choosing Rhinoplasty

Changing the size, shape, and appearance of the nose affects more than just the nose. When the nose appears to be in harmony with other features, it can allow your best features, such as your eyes or your smile, to get the attention and focus they deserve.

Patients may consider rhinoplasty for cosmetic or functional reasons, or both. In some cases, patients who have difficulty breathing need nose surgery to remove an obstruction. Cosmetic changes to the nose can be incorporated during the same procedure. Rhinoplasty patients generally want to:

  • Create balance and harmony in facial features
  • Alter a crooked, broken, humped, or large nose
  • Create a more pleasing facial profile

Noses are prominent facial features. A nose that is large or unshapely can draw the eye to it and define your face. If you want to reduce negative attention to this prominent feature, rhinoplasty is an appropriate solution.
