Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty is the reshaping of the nose to bring about a more normal or enhanced appearance. Often this is done in conjunction with correction of airway obstruction. Sometimes subtle changes can bring about profound improvements in facial appearance, and sometimes substantial changes are required. Commonly requested improvements include removing a hump, straightening, refining a bulbous tip, and narrowing of the nose. Irregularities from previous trauma can often be corrected. The goals of each patient are different, and each patient requires an individualized assessment and approach. This includes both internal and external nasal examination and consideration of other features of the face. Dr. Lindsey offers Vectra facial and nasal imaging which provides a realistic picture of what proposed changes will look like. Dr. Lindsey also offers realistic comparisons with previous similar patients. A rhinoplasty consultation is an in-depth analysis which typically takes 45 minutes or more.
