If you feel your nose is not a good fit for your face, rhinoplasty can enhance the shape, size and general appearance of your nose. You may be a good candidate for rhinoplasty if you have any of the following conditions:
- your nose appears too large for your face
- there is a bump or depression on the nasal bridge
- the nose appears wide
- the nasal tip droops or plunges
- the tip is thickened or enlarged
- the nostrils are excessively flared
- your nose is off-center or crooked
- a previous injury has made your nose asymmetrical
- you have an airway obstruction that impairs breathing
For more information regarding rhinoplasty, please contact our office. We will be happy to send you a detailed brochure on the procedure.
Rhinoplasty patient shown before surgery with large nose, nasal hump, enlarged tip and nose that hangs slightly where it meets the upper lip.
Incisions are made inside the nose to provide access to cartilage and bone which can be cut and reshaped to alter the external appearance of the nose. The bridge of the nose can be narrowed by moving the bone inward, as shown by the arrow.
Areas where cartilage and bone have been readjusted to improve the shape of the nose are shown.
The postoperative patient with smaller nose, a straight nasal bridge, better defined nasal tip and an improved angle between nose and upper lip.
