Rhinoplasty Procedure in Miami
However you want to call it, Rhinoplasty, Nose Surgery, Nose Job, this is one of the most common and popular procedures performed today. Whether it is for aesthetic beauty or to improve the quality of breathing and sleep, a nose job, technically called Rhinoplasty, is your solution. Many patients also undergo Rhinoplasty in Miami because of an accident or trauma that left their nose distorted or not functioning properly. Other patients want to improve the quality of breathing because of a deviated septum. Even small and subtle changes in the width, length and shape of the nose can yield dramatic changes in overall beauty and confidence. This is why patients undergoing rhinoplasty across the United States give it one of the best ratings in experience and satisfaction.
In order to be a candidate for a nose job in Miami, a patient must have a positive view of the body image and must be at an age where the nose is fully mature. Patients must be at least 15 years old to be candidates for this procedure.
Depending on your specific goals to shorten the nose length, correct a bump on the nose bridge, reduce the nostril width, or reduce the nose tip, there are different courses of action. After your private consultation with a specialized surgeon, we will help you decide which procedure is best for you. Some nose job procedures can be done without incision or operative room time, this is known as non-surgical rhinoplasty.
The essence behind non-surgical rhinoplasty is the use of a dermal filler injection like Restylane or Juvederm to correct any bumps on the nose bridge or for correction of a bent nose tip. However, this non-surgical procedure would not benefit a patient seeking to reduce the diameter of the nostril. We invite you to visit us for your private consultation and to see before and after photos.
