Rhinoplasty Q&A

What is rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty, or cosmetic nose reshaping, is a surgical procedure that focuses on altering the nose to enhance its appearance or improve its function. It can modify the size, shape, symmetry, and proportions of the nose to achieve the desired results. 

Rhinoplasty can also address structural issues within the nose to help improve breathing and overall nasal function.

How is rhinoplasty performed?

As a highly skilled surgeon, Dr. Elnekaveh performs two rhinoplasty techniques at Dr. Brandon Plastic Surgery:

Open rhinoplasty

Open rhinoplasty involves making an incision externally across the columella (the strip of skin between the nostrils). This technique offers enhanced surgical access and visualization, allowing for more precise modifications. 

Closed rhinoplasty

Closed rhinoplasty involves making incisions inside the nostrils, making it a more discreet option than open techniques. However, it may limit visibility and access, which can be less suitable for complex cases.

  • Enlarged nostrils
  • Wide nasal bridge
