Rhinoplasty (nose surgery) is the most commonly performed facial procedure in plastic surgery. It is also the most complex and artistic by far. Dr. Banthia is a specially-trained and highly experienced plastic surgeon with years of success reshaping noses to look attractive and natural. Contact Murrieta Facial Plastic Surgery today for a consultation.

How is nose surgery performed?

Nose surgery improves the appearance and proportion of your nose, enhancing facial harmony, and boosting your self-confidence. It can also correct impaired breathing caused by structural issues of the nose. Surgical incisions are carefully hidden inside the nose or across the columella (which separates the nostrils). Through the incision, the soft tissues that cover the nose are gently raised, allowing Dr. Banthia to reshape the nose’s structure.

What benefits can I expect from nose surgery?

Many undesirable features of the nose may be improved through cosmetic surgery. Noses may be made narrower, straighter, longer, or shorter. Bumps may be removed and the shape, size, angle, and definition of the tip may be altered. The art of rhinoplasty is obtaining the desired changes, while maintaining the nose’s natural appearance. Nose surgery may be performed for strictly cosmetic reasons (to correct imperfections or repair an injury), for improved breathing (to correct a deviated septum or clear an obstruction), and more commonly for a combination of both.

Am I a good candidate for nose surgery?

Rhinoplasty may be performed any time after facial growth has been completed (generally age 16-17). You are a good candidate for nose surgery if:
• You are physically healthy and a non-smoker
• You have specific, but realistic goals in mind for the procedure

In some cases, your nasal procedure may be covered in part by your health insurance company.

When planning your nose surgery, Dr. Banthia will consider your facial features, the skin on your nose, and what you would like to change. Very slight changes to the structure of the nose — often measured in millimeters — make a large difference in your appearance.
