The nose is a central feature of our face that should be in balance with the rest of our features. Cosmetic nasal surgery, or rhinoplasty, can reshape the nose for people who are dissatisfied with the shape and size of their nose. Rhinoplasty may also help those patients with difficulty breathing. Rhinoplasty can reshape virtually any aspect of the nose, including the bridge, tip, and nostrils. We will help you assess each of these areas and recommend how they might be improved. Rhinoplasty is an outpatient procedure performed under either local or general anesthesia. The recovery after rhinoplasty usually takes one to two weeks. The results from rhinoplasty are seen immediately but continue to improve for the next 3-6 months.
Rhinoplasties are frequently done in conjunction with chin enhancement procedures to give the face a better balance.
