Rhinoplasty is defined as surgery of the nasal bones and/or cartilages for the purpose of improving the appearance of the nose or improving nasal breathing. A large percentage of rhinoplasty procedures in Dallas and throughout the country are performed by surgeons trained in otolaryngology--head & neck surgery.
Patients inquire about having a rhinoplasty surgery for any of the following reasons:
Dissatisfaction with appearance of the nasal dorsum due to a nasal hump or a crooked nose
Dissatisfaction with the size of the nose as it relates to the facial structure
Dissatisfaction with the tip of the nose due to tip bulbosity or asymmetry
History of trauma or previous surgery with persistent deformity
Obstructed nasal breathing due to weak or collapsed nasal cartilages
