Many people are dissatisfied with the shape, size, or overall appearance of their noses. The cosmetic appearance of this area of the body can cause people a particularly large amount of frustration because of its central location on the face.

What is a Rhinoplasty?
More commonly referred to as a “nose job” or “cosmetic nose surgery,” a rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure used to improve the size, width, or overall symmetry of the nose. This surgery is also used to correct structural defects that can cause impaired breathing in some individuals.
Specifically, a rhinoplasty can be used to:
- Correct nasal asymmetry
- Narrow the nose bridge
- Remove an enlarged hump
- Narrow the nose tip
- Shorten the nose
- Adjust the size or position of the nostrils
What are the Benefits of this Procedure?
Because rhinoplasty is such a well-documented procedure, patients can take comfort knowing that they will be able to alter the structure, shape, and size of their nose without experiencing significant complications. The results of a rhinoplasty can have a significant impact on a person’s self-esteem, giving them the confidence they need to succeed in their personal and professional lives. If a rhinoplasty is performed for medical reasons, it can even make daily life easier by helping the affected individual breathe more easily.
Am I a Candidate?
Nearly any patient interested in altering the appearance of their nose or correcting its structural irregularities is a potential candidate for a rhinoplasty. However, it is important that interested individuals have realistic expectations for the procedure. This surgery cannot correct all facial asymmetries — everyone’s facial features have at least some degree of asymmetry, and perfection of any kind is unattainable.
