The nose is a complicated structure composed of bone, cartilage, and soft tissue. These components are altered as needed to change the shape of the nose to give a more aesthetically pleasing appearance. A rhinoplasty may change the size of the nose, remove or add height, or change the width. As with any facial surgery, I strive for a balanced and more attractive appearance that fits your face and bone structure. Rhinoplasty may be combined with a septoplasty in patients with breathing difficulties due to a deviated septum.
