Nose Reshaping Surgery
Rhinoplasty, or nose surgery, is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures. Men and women of all ages seek it to address a variety of issues. Rhinoplasty can change the size of your nose; reshape the bridge, tip, and nostril span; correct nose injuries or birth defects; and improve nasal breathing. Rhinoplasty is a positive way to improve your appearance, self-confidence, and health. Maryland plastic surgeon Dr. Henry Garazo is board certified and offers unsurpassed rhinoplasty results to his patients at Plastic Surgery Services.
Through rhinoplasty in Maryland, Dr. Garazo can create balance and harmony in your face, offering results that are subtle and natural-looking to Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and Maryland men and women. Although it is important to have realistic goals about what rhinoplasty can achieve, little changes to your nose can make a big difference in how you look and feel. Rhinoplasty is performed through a series of hidden incisions. During the procedure, Dr. Garazo works to reshape the framework of your nose—minimizing, augmenting, or sculpting the cartilage into a more appealing shape. When the structure needs to be augmented, a variety of materials can be used, including your own tissue. Through rhinoplasty, Dr. Garazo can correct asymmetry issues, deformities, or nasal injuries for a beautiful nose that complements your face rather than detracts from it.
Rhinoplasty is an outpatient procedure, performed under general anesthesia. Dr. Garazo can perform either an open or closed rhinoplasty, depending on the issues being addressed. An open procedure allows easier access during the surgery, but requires a small incision between the nostrils in the columella. With a closed rhinoplasty, all incisions are hidden, but the surgeon has less access during the procedure. Both open and closed rhinoplasty can offer excellent results. Dr. Garazo will discuss with you which option is best for you.
The best rhinoplasty candidates tend to be physically healthy men and women with realistic expectations about what a rhinoplasty can achieve. Though patients of most ages can benefit from the procedure, it is not recommended in those younger than 16 because they have to allow their nose to fully develop. Rhinoplasty is an effective way to reshape the tip, bridge, or nostril span of your nose, remove dorsal humps, correct injuries, and improve nasal breathing. A careful balance of artistry and medicine, rhinoplasty creates harmony and symmetry among your facial features for a subtle change you can feel great about.
