Nose Surgery- (Rhinoplasty)

Surgery of the nose can change:

  1. Nose size
  2. Nose width at the bridge and tip
  3. Visible humps or depressions of the bridge
  4. Nasal tip- too large or bulbous, drooping, upturned
  5. Nostrils – too large or too wide


An incision is made across the columella, the narrow strip that separates the nostrils. The soft tissues that cover the nose are gently raised, allowing access to reshape the nose

Soft Tissue Fillers

Temporary soft tissue fillers help to diminish fine facial lines and restore volume and fullness to the face. They can be used for :

  1. Plump thin lips
  2. Improve shallow contours
  3. Soften creases and wrinkles


However, only surgery can lift. Fillers can only delay the time when a facelift is appropriate. They are not a substitute for surgery.

I sincerely appreciate my patients graciously allowing the use of their photos for educational purposes. They may help alleviate  the anxiety of a patient considering plastic surgery  as well as support others with their decision to proceed with plastic surgery.
