Rhinoplasty / Secondary Rhinoplasty

The nose is the most prominent feature of the face. The size and shape of one’s nose serves to define the face. The ideal nose varies from individual to individual. Rhinoplasty entails re-shaping the nose by reducing or increasing the size of the nose. This may entail removing the hump, changing the shape of the tip or bridge of the nose, narrowing the width of the nostrils, or changing the angle between the nose and the upper lip.

A critical step for successful and predictable Rhinoplasty results is a clear understanding based on dynamics of the procedure. It is essential for the surgeon to understand which part of the nasal framework controls each zone of the nose and the patient and surgeon to have a mutually agreed upon goal for surgical improvement.
