Rhinoplasty (Nose Surgery)

Nose Surgery in Westminster, California

Rhinoplasty Rhinoplasty, sometimes referred to as a “nose job” or “nose reshaping” by patients, enhances facial harmony and the proportions of your nose. It can also correct impaired breathing caused by structural defects in the nose.

What surgical rhinoplasty can treat:

  • Nose size in relation to facial balance
  • Nose width at the bridge or in the size and position of the nostrils
  • Nose profile with visible humps or depressions on the bridge
  • Nasal tip that is enlarged or bulbous, drooping, upturned, or hooked
  • Nostrils that are large, wide, or upturned
  • Nasal asymmetry

If you desire a more symmetrical nose, keep in mind that everyone’s face is asymmetric to some degree. Results may not be completely symmetric, although the goal is to create facial balance and correct proportion.

Nasal Implant
Nasal Augmentation, using cartilage, bone, or a Nasal Implant, is a great way to make a small or flat nose match the rest of your face. This procedure uses cartilage, bone, or a Dorsal Nasal Implant for nose enlargement to improve facial proportions and enhance your self-confidence.  Augmentation Nasoplasty is often performed in conjunction with other Rhinoplasty (nasal surgery) procedures to help balance the nose with other facial features and create more harmonious proportions.

Nasal Augmentation techniques include:

  • Autologous Nasal Augmentation – a graft of your own cartilage or bone is used to augment your nose.
  • Nasal Augmentation with a Nasal Implant – A nasal implant is used for nasal augmentation.

Rhinoplasty to correct a deviated septum
Nose surgery that’s done to improve an obstructed airway requires careful evaluation of the nasal structure as it relates to airflow and breathing.

Correction of a deviated septum, one of the most common causes of breathing impairment, is achieved by adjusting the nasal structure to produce better alignment.
