The best way to determine if nose surgery is right for you is to schedule a personal consultation with one of our board-certified plastic surgeons. During your consultation, all aspects of your nose will be considered. Our surgeon will work closely with you to understand your specific goals, evaluate your anatomical structure and answer all of your questions.

Types of Nose Surgery

Every nose, like every patient, is unique. No single rhinoplasty procedure is right for every patient. To meet your individual needs, we offer a variety of nose surgery options, including:

  • Open rhinoplasty: In an open or partially open rhinoplasty, a single external incision is made across the strut of the nostrils (columella). Soft tissues, cartilage and nasal bones are reshaped.
  • Closed rhinoplasty: In this procedure, incisions are only made inside the nostrils. The soft tissue, cartilage and nasal bones are then adjusted to improve the contours of the nose.
  • Revision rhinoplasty: If your previous nasal surgery did not provide the desired results, or if you have experienced a change in your aesthetic preferences since your procedure, revision rhinoplasty can be performed to correct these issues.

The technique used in your rhinoplasty will be selected based on your personal needs.

Your Rhinoplasty Consultation

The first step toward an improved appearance begins with an initial rhinoplasty consultation. During this comprehensive meeting, our surgeon will work to understand your goals and design a procedure that will provide you with the results you desire: an elegant, proportional nose that harmonizes naturally with your facial features.

Based on your unique goals and facial structure, our surgeon will explain if your expectations are realistic and attainable. He may recommend other facial plastic surgery procedures that may be more effective at bringing balance to your face, such as chin augmentation.
