RhinoplastyThe nose plays a significant part in your face’s appearance. Its central and prominent location is an important factor for facial harmony and balance. So when the nose is slightly off-center or too large, bulbous or malformed, it can be a boon to the confidence. For those who are concerned about the appearance of their nose or would like to enhance their nose in a more ideal fashion, a rhinoplasty is a great solution.

A rhinoplasty is a highly versatile procedure that is tailored to meet the needs of each patient. The techniques will generally fall into one of two categories: open or closed. Open rhinoplasty is performed by making incisions along the columella, the narrow strip of tissue separating the nostrils, which gives the surgeon access to nasal structures. A closed procedure means incisions can be made inside the nose, which allows scars to be hidden.

The options available will depend on the type of nasal structure to be enhanced. Consult with an experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Michael Sundine if you would like to know more about rhinoplasty.
