Your nose is a dominant feature on your face and plays an important role in determining your overall appearance. The modern nasal surgery techniques our surgeons use for their Los Angeles rhinoplasty patients focus on reshaping undesirable features of the nose while retaining those features that are attractive. The goal of these techniques is to create a natural-appearing nose that enhances your facial proportions.
Nose surgery is divided into two categories: cosmetic and functional. Examples of cosmetic procedures on the nose include reducing a prominent bump on the bridge or refining a bulbous nasal tip. Cosmetic changes are visible on the outside of the nose.
Functional improvements involve opening the nasal airways so that it is easier to breathe. The most common functional problem is a deviated septum (a midline cartilage structure that divides the nose into right and left sides). Impairment of nasal breathing is considered a health problem and is typically covered by health insurance.
Many of our Los Angeles nose surgery patients have both cosmetic and functional concerns about their nose. An example would be a severely deviated septum that results in a blocked nasal airway and a visibly crooked nose. Other patients may seek medical treatment for breathing problems, but would also like to improve the cosmetic appearance of their nose. For instance, a patient may have nasal airway obstruction and an unattractive bump on the bridge. There are advantages to correcting both functional and cosmetic problems at the same time.
Our surgeons also have experience correcting poor results obtained following nose surgery from another practice. Many men and women considering revision rhinoplasty in Los Angeles choose our practice to take advantage of our surgeons’ skill.
Nose shapes and patient desires vary greatly. Advice about nasal surgery should be individualized to the particular patient’s needs.
