Second only to the eyes, the nose is the most prominent feature of the face. Thus it can be distressing when the nose does not appear in harmony with the rest of one’s appearance. Not surprisingly, Rhinoplasty, surgery to reshape the nose, is one of the most common of all cosmetic surgery procedures. Rhinoplasty can reduce or increase the size of the nose, change the shape of the tip or bridge, narrow the span of the nostrils or change the angle between the nose and the upper lip. Although many desire Rhinoplasty to cosmetically enhance the shape of their nose, others seek surgery after a facial injury or to help relieve breathing problems. When having surgery to correct such a functional problem, medical insurance may cover a part of surgical costs.
If you have been thinking about how Rhinoplasty might enhance your appearance, please consider consulting with Dr. William Boss, the plastic surgeon on our staff at the Cosmetic Skin and Surgery Center. Dr. Boss will discuss your individual expectations and review your medical history, and then recommend the surgical technique that would work best for you.
