Service Description

When to Consider Nose Surgery

  • If you are unhappy with the shape, size or angle of your nose
  • If your nose is too large, too small or not in proportion to the rest of your face
  • If you have breathing problems resulting from irregularities inside your nose
  • If you have a nasal hump or a nasal tip that is drooping, too elevated or wide

How is a nose surgery procedure performed?

After numbing the area, your surgeon will make incisions to access the bones and cartilage that support the nose. There are two general techniques for making the incisions: open and endonasal.

By adding or removing bone and cartilage and adjusting the supporting structures inside the nose, the size of your nose can be reduced or increased and the nose may be shortened or lengthened.

  • Tip grafts made of cartilage can be used to remodel the tip of your nose, making it more uplifted, longer, shorter, or thinner.
  • Your skin and other soft tissues will remodel to assume the shape of the underlying structure.
  • In some patients, tissue fillers or fat grafts can be added to increase volume in desired areas.

Open rhinoplasty

For an open rhinoplasty, the incisions are made outside the nose with a small access incision on the underside of the nose between the nostrils that then connects with other incisions hidden inside the nose.

Advocates for the open rhinoplasty approach say that it fully opens the nose, providing better visualization of the nasal structures and a more direct route for surgical manipulation; the small scar at the base of the nose is barely visible once it heals.

Endonasal rhinoplasty

For an endonasal rhinoplasty, the incisions are made inside the nasal passages. Because these incisions are hidden, they are invisible after surgery.

Advocates for the endonasal approach say that it permits more limited dissection of nasal tissues, offers excellent visualization of nasal structures, and eliminates the visible scar at the base of the nose.

If you are in good general health, have a positive attitude and realistic expectations, you are most likely a good candidate for this procedure.
