This 27-year-old woman wanted to have a more delicate nose that matched her other facial features. Uncomfortable with her large nasal hump, she wanted to smooth the slope of her nose surgically. She researched several Los Angeles plastic surgery centers before deciding to schedule a visit at Marina Plastic Surgery Associates.
During her consultation, she discussed what she wanted to change with her surgeon. He recommended that he perform an "open" incision rhinoplasty, where he would use a small incision just below the nose. The small incision allows the surgeon to have better maneuverability, which is helpful for more intensive procedures. He explained that the surgery would take 1-2 hours to complete and then she would get to go home and recover in comfort.
Five weeks after her rhinoplasty in Los Angeles, these "after" photos were taken. Her profile has been transformed dramatically, producing a gradual and feminine nasal slope that fits her features nicely. She was very happy with the results of her procedure and will likely see even more definition as the swelling subsides over the next year.
