Rhinoplasty Beverly Hills
Obstructions in the nose that cause breathing and sinus problems and deformities of the nose such as a hump on the top or a nose that is too long or too wide can be corrected by a rhinoplasty. A rhinoplasty can be performed in conjunction with reconstructive nasal-septal surgery to relieve obstructions inside the nose. This operation is known as a septorhinoplasty. Incisions are placed inside the nose so that no scarring can be seen. Rarely, a small incision may be required across the skin between the nostrils. Most patients have packing inside their nose when they leave the surgery center which may be removed by a member of Dr. Joseph’s staff the following morning. There will be a small cast on the nose for approximately 7 days which will be removed on the patient’s post-operative visit.
Reconstruction / Refinement
Also known as rhinoplasty, nose surgery improves the appearance and proportion of your nose, enhancing facial harmony and self-confidence. Surgery of the nose may also correct impaired breathing caused by structural abnormalities in the nose. Often time’s nasal surgery may involve adding or repositioning tissue to the nose to produce balance and symmetry, rather than just removing tissue or a bump.
