Revitalize the Look of Your Nose and Your Self-confidence

Rhinoplasty - Missoula, Butte, Helena, Montana

If you are dissatisfied with the size or shape of your nose, you may benefit from rhinoplasty. At our Missoula cosmetic surgery practice, we have helped numerous patients improve the appearance and functionality of their noses, and we would be happy to work with you if you are considering rhinoplasty. Colloquially known as a "nose job," rhinoplasty surgery is extremely effective at reshaping the nose and is a safe and reliable procedure. If you would like to schedule a consultation with Dr. Stephen Hardy regarding rhinoplasty, please contact our Missoula, Montana cosmetic surgery practice today.


Rhinoplasty can be used to improve the appearance of the nose or to correct impaired breathing or structural defects. Like breast reduction surgery, rhinoplasty can satisfy both cosmetic and functional needs, which is why we are pleased to offer it at Northwest Plastic Surgery Associates. Dr. Hardy will carefully evaluate your individual needs and goals for improvement to determine the specific techniques needed to provide the results you are seeking. Cosmetically, the surgery addresses the following features:

  • Nose size in relation to facial balance
  • Nose width, at the bridge or in the size and position of the nostrils
  • Nasal tips that are enlarged, bulbous, drooping, upturned or hooked
  • Large, wide or upturned nostrils
  • Nasal asymmetry
  • Problems caused by injuries to the nose

Reconstructive Nose Surgery

Reconstructive surgery to improve an obstructed airway will address issues such as deviated septums that require the adjustment of the nasal structure to achieve better alignment. You can rest assured that Dr. Stephen Hardy has the experience and knowledge needed to help.
