Rhinoplasty, or nose reshaping, is designed to improve the appearance and proportion of your nose, and thereby improve facial harmony and self-confidence. It can be done for cosmetic reasons or for functional reasons to correct impaired breathing caused by structural abnormalities or for reconstructive reasons such as to correct a broken nose.
Improved Shape & Size
Rhinoplasty can improve the size of the nose in relation to other facial structures and improve the profile by correcting humps or depressions on the bridge. It can reshape a nasal tip that is too large, bulbous, drooping or upturned, or correct nostrils that are too large or wide. Nasal cosmetic surgery is a highly individualized procedure and with a consult with Dr. Turner, your goals, expectations and possible outcomes will be reviewed.
