What is Rhinoplasty?
Often referred to as a nose job, rhinoplasty is the surgical process of reshaping the nose for aesthetic or functional (reconstructive) purposes. Although most people think of rhinoplasty as a strictly cosmetic procedure, it can also improve breathing and correct obstructed airway complications such as a deviated septum. Additionally, as an experienced reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Hardy can perform reconstructive rhinoplasty following a traumatic injury. Regardless of whether the procedure is medically necessary or because you want to improve the appearance of your nose, Dr. Hardy can ensure that all our rhinoplasty patients leave with an aesthetically pleasing profile.
What Conditions Can Rhinoplasty Address?
Rhinoplasty can address a wide range of cosmetic imperfections to create better symmetry and balance. Rhinoplasty can correct:
- A nose that is too large or small in relation to facial balance
- The width of the nose, either at the bridge or in the size and positioning of the nostrils
- Nasal tips that are enlarged, bulbous, drooping, upturned, or hooked
- Nostrils that are large, wide, or upturned
- Nasal asymmetry
