Surgery to reshape the nose, (rhinoplasty) is among the most common of plastic surgery procedures. Every year, half a million people who are interested in improving the appearance of their noses seek consultation with Board Certified Facial Plastic Surgeons. Some are unhappy with the noses they were born with, and some with the way aging has changed their nose. For others, an injury may have distorted the nose, or the goal may be improved breathing. But one thing is clear: nothing has a greater impact on how a person looks than the size and shape of the nose. Because the nose is the most defining characteristic of the face, a slight alteration can greatly improve one's appearance.
Rhinoplasty can reduce or increase the size of the nose, remove an unwanted hump, change the shape of the tip or the bridge, narrow the width of the nostrils, or change the angle between the nose and the upper lip. The procedure restores an improved balance between the nose and other facial features. We take great care to achieve a natural result and to avoid the “surgical” look.

No pamphlet can answer all your concerns, but a consultation with Dr. Silver or Dr. DeJoseph can provide answers to many of the questions you may have.
