The consequences of delaying a needed rhinoplasty.

Depending on your unique condition, delaying a rhinoplasty could affect your long-term health.

We will examine your issue, explore treatment options, and work with you to develop a treatment plan. It all starts with a consultation. Get started by requesting an appointment below.
What exactly is a rhinoplasty (nose job)?
Rhinoplasty, commonly known as a “nose job,” is a surgical procedure conducted by an ENT surgeon to change the shape of your nose, including internal and external parts of your nose. Due to the versatility of the procedure, rhinoplasty can be a solution for patients looking to alter the appearance of their nose or to improve their ability to breathe from their nose.
Your nose consists of bones, cartilage, a septum, skin, and tissues. Rhinoplasty involves removing and/or reshaping bone, cartilage, or skin. Select rhinoplasty procedures, determined by the ENT, may involve changing all three.
Rhinoplasty is performed as an outpatient procedure and does not require a lengthy hospital stay. It can be conducted under general or local anesthesia. After anesthesia is administered, the surgeon will make necessary cuts in the nostrils and along the base of the nose if needed, and then reshaped for better function and appearance.
There’s no need to worry about your procedure. Facial Cosmetic Surgeon, Dr. Waters will guide you through the procedure in advance and explain what will be done and why based on the structure of your face and nose, health, wants, and needs.
