The Procedure

The nose is a focal point on a face.  Its anatomical location has the power to influence aesthetics on the entire face.

A rhinoplasty procedure aims to change the shape of a nose, and bring proportional harmony to the face.

Aside from aesthetics, another reason for a rhinoplasty is airway obstruction. A rhinoplasty and septoplasty can be performed together in order to relieve nasal airway obstruction.

Techniques and approaches for a rhinoplasty vary depending on patient need, nose shape and desired outcome. There are two main types of incisions used, open and closed. An open rhinoplasty requires a small, discreet incision just underneath the nose.  While a closed rhinoplasty hides the incision inside the nostrils.

The best approach for an individual patient will be determined by Dr. Nathan during the initial consultation.

I had an emergency rhinoplasty due to an accident which broke my nose. Dr.Nathan was absolutely amazing in helping me through this tough emotional time. He explained every detail of the surgery and calmed my fears. He truly is a blessing.

Rhinoplasty Patient

We were referred to Dr. Nathan’s office after the dermatologist did MOHs surgery and could not close the wound. Thank heavens we got to Dr. Nathan! When he reconstructed the nose, it involved a skin graft. We are happy to say report that everything is healing beautifully, many thanks to Dr. Nathan. He is a miracle worker!
