Face Rhinoplasty


The nose is the central, most prominent feature of the face and a major factor in defining balance and harmony among facial features. When the nose is out of proportion with other facial features or the nose does not complement the face, it can affect self-image and confidence. In most cases, the specific characteristics of the nose are a result of heredity; however the appearance of the nose may sometimes be the result of injury or prior surgery.


If you are bothered by the size or shape of your nose, then cosmetic surgery of the nose, or rhinoplasty, may be right for you. In general, rhinoplasty improves the appearance and proportion of the nose, enhancing facial harmony and self-confidence. Surgery of the nose may also correct impaired breathing caused by structural defects in the nose.
