Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty or Cosmetic Surgery of the Nose

Whether it is a minor refinement or a major change, Dr. Lo has the experience and surgical skill to perform a rhinoplasty procedure to give you the nose you have always wanted. Nose reshaping or rhinoplasty can remove a bump or increase the nasal profile, narrow the nose and refine the nasal tip. Another possible benefit of rhinoplasty is the correction of breathing problems. Whatever your objectives may be, Dr. Lo will reshape your nose in proportion to your face to look as natural as possible.

Are you a candidate for Rhinoplasty?

You may be a candidate for rhinoplasty surgery if you feel that any of the scenarios listed below apply to you:

  • Your nose appears to be too large or not in proportion for your face.
  • You have a bump on your nasal bridge.
  • The tip of your nose is too large or bulbous.
  • The tip of your nose plunges or droops.
  • Your nostrils are too large or flare excessively.
  • Your nose is off center or crooked.

Dr. Lo believes the goal of rhinoplasty surgery is create an aesthetically pleasing natural appearing and proportionate nose. Dr. Lo performs most of his nasal surgery through an CLOSED or internal approach which involves small incisions inside the nose with no visible scars on the skin. Rhinoplasty surgery can remove the bump on your bridge, narrow your nose, make the tip of the nose smaller, refine the tip of your nose, or adjust the tip projection, resulting in a more pleasing look. If necessary, the nose can be made shorter.

Large or flared nostrils can to be made smaller by removing small wedges of nostril skin through small incisions that are hidden in the natural creases. For extensive reshaping of the nasal tip, an OPEN or external rhinoplasty approach may be warranted in which a small cut may be made on the columella, which is the strip of tissue that separates the two nostrils.

If you have breathing problems, a septoplasty can be performed to improve your breathing at the same time as the rhinoplasty surgery.

To enhance the overall result of your rhinoplasty surgery and to achieve better proportions, chin surgery may be recommended. This may involve the use of a chin implant or a sliding genioplasty procedure to make your chin more prominent and to balance your face.

If you feel that you would like to enhance or improve the shape, size, proportions and general appearance of your nose, call Dr. Lo to arrange a consultation to discuss your goals and wishes. Dr. Lo has over a decade of experience in rhinoplasty and rebuilding noses in cleft palate children. With that type of experience, you can be assured that you are in good hands with your nasal surgery.
