The nose is very important to facial aesthetic appearance. A well-designed rhinoplasty can dramatically improve beauty.
The nose is possibly the most important structure on the face due to its forward position and visibility. Due to this, nasal shaping requires a significant amount of preoperative planning and surgical skill. The alteration of the nasal shape and underlying structure must be handled with the greatest of care.
The preoperative evaluation includes examining the nose thoroughly internally and externally. Any underlying medical problems such as allergies and snoring should be addressed prior to surgery. I will explicitly outline the operative plan and the post-operative course. The overall goal of the procedure is to address the issues with your nose without compromising your ability to breathe. A well-designed and performed rhinoplasty can dramatically improve your facial aesthetic appearance.
