Nose & Chin Reshaping in Boston, MA
Nasal reshaping, or Rhinoplasty, is more commonly referred to as a nose job. Rhinoplasty refines the shape of the nose to compliment your individual facial features and enhance the natural contours of your face. Of all plastic surgery procedures, rhinoplasty is among the most common.
Nasal reshaping can be performed on any part of the nose to: reduce its size; modify the size and shape of the nostrils, tip or bridge of the nose; alter the slope or angle of the nose; or add symmetry to the face. A chin implant can also be added at the same time to enhance the rhinoplasty results and balance the profile.
In most rhinoplasty surgeries the incisions are made inside the nostrils. Working through these incisions, the nose’s framework of bone and cartilage is sculpted to the desired shape. The skin is then redraped over the “new” framework, and a splint is applied to help your nose maintain its new form. In some cases, nasal packs or soft splints may be inserted in the nostrils to provide additional stability.
Every face is unique, and so every rhinoplasty surgery must be unique. We encourage you to come in for a private consultation to discuss your goals and create a customized solution for you.
