Rhinoplasty is a facial procedure that reshapes the nose and can be either cosmetic or reconstructive. Patients who are unhappy with the appearance of their nose can choose this surgery to alter the nose’s bridge, base, or tip. Many patients also choose rhinoplasty as a solution for respiratory issues, such as a deviated septum. As a board certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Hunter Moyer performs rhinoplasty for both cosmetic and reconstructive purposes.
During nose surgery, an incision is typically made inside the nostrils. Sometimes a small incision is made externally under the nose to aid access to internal structures during the procedure. The skin is then lifted for Dr. Moyer to address nasal shape and size. The nose can be carefully sculpted by reshaping the tip, reducing the base, and lengthening or shortening the bridge.
Patients also seek rhinoplasty for reconstructive purposes to address any breathing obstructions. Dr. Moyer commonly performs cosmetic rhinoplasty in combination with reconstructive rhinoplasty to improve overall aesthetics for his patients. To maintain a proportionate result, some patients also combine rhinoplasty with other facial procedures such as blepharoplasty or a facelift to achieve a rejuvenated appearance.
