Nose Surgery

Generally, a well-balanced and well-proportioned nose is more cosmetically appealing to the eyes.  Rhinoplasty or a nose job is the name given to the surgical correction of the appearance of the nose.  Rhinoplasty can be performed to reduce the size of the nose, decrease a nasal hump, change the appearance of the tip, straighten a crooked nose, and in general improve the overall shape of the nose in relation to the rest of the face.  Rhinoplasty can sometimes be coupled with septoplasty and other nasal procedures to not only improve appearance but also improve breathing through the nose. 

Rhinoplasty is performed under general anesthesia for greater comfort. There are generally two approaches to rhinoplasty.  Endonasal approach (also known as closed approach) is done with all the incisions entirely inside the nose.  An open-approach has most of the incisions hidden inside the nose with a small incision along the base of the nose on the outside skin.  The correct approach for you would be decided during your consultation.
