Nasal Reshaping & Nasal Airway Improvement

Rhinoplasty is the name given to the operation whose pupose is to correct deformities of the nose.  The procedure consists of removing any excess bone and/or cartilage and then modifying and reshaping the nose into a shape that is usually defined by the patient or by the need to improve normal function.  We offer video imaging to discuss your options along with your preferences.  Most rhinoplasties are performed because the patient desires an improvement in appearance, he or she may simply want a nose that is in harmony with the rest of the face.  Patients with high visibility careers or professions are frequently motivated to create a balance in facial features that has favorable impact on their interactions with others.  Patients are motivated when they dislike their appearance, profile or perceived disfigurement especially in situations where breathing difficulties developed over the years, due perhaps to mild trauma or complications with sinus and air way passages.  In severe cases involving compromised sinus tissues and membranes, nose reshaping can easily create the relief and ease of breathing that medications alone cannot reliably produce.
