Patients come to us with various reasons for wanting to change the shape of their noses. You may have been born with a nose size or shape that has bothered you for many years; or you may have had an accident that changed the shape of your nose. Some patients have spent a lifetime with breathing problems, often caused by a deviated septum. But whatever the reason for “nose issues,” we have solutions that can improve the shape of your nose, which can improve facial balance and your overall appearance. And we can make structural changes that can ease your breathing issues.
Surgical rhinoplasty can provide dramatic and natural results
This method for reshaping of the nose is a long-term solution to improve size and shape and remove bumps. The procedure has a long history of successful outcomes for people who are unhappy with their nose or struggle with breathing issues due to structural problems.
Most of the incisions are made inside the nose
The skin, tissues underlying bone and cartilage are all sculpted to a new, more aesthetic shape, leaving no visible scars. You will have bruising and swelling as a result of the surgery that takes some time to resolve. And depending on your needs, the procedure can be performed using local or general anesthesia.
Non-surgical rhinoplasty is an option for some patients
This procedure uses injectable fillers, such as Radiesse, to alter the shape of the nose for a more pleasing appearance. Non-surgical rhinoplasty is typically performed for aesthetic reasons, but fillers can also be used to correct certain other defects. The procedure can be performed in our offices using local anesthetic. Bruising and swelling is usually minimal. Radiesse filler can allow your results to last eight months to a year. Hyaluronic acid fillers, such as Juvederm, can last six to eight months.
