The nose is one of the first things we notice about a person’s face. If you are self-conscious about or unhappy with a large or misshapen nose, nose surgery, also called rhinoplasty, may be right for you. Our skilled doctors will reshape your nose so that it is in balance with the rest of your face and has a natural appearance.
In addition to discussing desired cosmetic changes, our surgeons will also assess your nasal breathing. Nose shape, in addition to giving the face a harmonious and balanced appearance, is crucial to maintaining optimal nasal breathing. An attractive nose that doesn’t function well would not be a successful outcome for most patients.
Nose surgery can improve the shape and function of your nose by changing any of the following nasal attributes:
- Profile bumps and depressions
- Nasal breathing/ nasal stuffiness
If you are considering nasal surgery, remember that most insurance companies will only pay for procedures that improve breathing or restore appearance after a deforming fracture. Cosmetic changes are not covered by insurance. We have package pricing available.
As with all facial plastic surgery, good health and realistic expectations are prerequisites for nose surgery. Our team will educate you about the potential risks and outcomes. Discussing the options with your physician at the time of your initial consultation will enable you to make the decision best suited for you.
