Rhinoplasty (cosmetic surgery of the nose) is the procedure that reshapes and refines the nose. In addition to the shape of the nose, Dr. Stevens’ background in otolaryngology (ear, nose and throat surgery) allows him to take into account the functional nature of the nose (breathing, sinus issues) at the same time.
During your consultation, Dr. Stevens will use an imaging system to enhance your conversation with him and determine what aspects of your nose you wish to change and how that will be accomplished. Dr. Stevens will also evaluate your facial profile because it is not uncommon for the nose to appear large due to a deficit of chin projection. Restoring this balance is necessary to achieve overall facial harmony.
When Dr. Stevens has a firm concept of the appearance you wish to achieve he will recommend proceeding to surgery. Rhinoplasty surgery is performed with anesthesia at a certified ambulatory surgery center.
