While the shape of your nose is usually the result of heredity, the appearance may have been altered in an injury or during prior surgery. Also known as a Rhinoplasty, surgery of the nose improves the appearance and proportion of your nose, enhancing facial harmony and self confidence. Surgery of the nose may also correct impaired breathing caused by structural abnormalities in the nose.

Surgery of the nose can address nose size, nose width, and the bridge. It can also address nose profile, and nasal tips, that are large or bulbous, drooping, or too upturned. Nose surgery can also address nostrils that are large, nasal asymmetry and deviation.

General anesthesia is administered for your comfort during the surgical procedure.

Surgery of the nose is performed either using a closed procedure, where incisions are hidden inside the nose, or an open procedure, where an incision is made across the columella, the narrow strip of tissue that separates the nostrils. Through these incisions, the soft tissues that cover the nose are gently raised, allowing access to reshape the structure of the nose.
