At our Los Angeles plastic surgery practice we offer rhinoplasty procedures for women and men who are concerned with the shape and size of their noses in proportion to the rest of their faces. This cosmetic procedure can effectively change the way you feel about your facial appearance, and the way others perceive you.

Nose surgery is typically chosen as a way to reduce the shape and size of a person’s nose. Surgeons use a number of techniques to straighten the nose contour or change its overall appearance. A number of people will also use nose surgery to repair any damage they might have incurred during an accident.

When repairing damage and restoring the overall appearance of the nose, we usually try to improve the patient’s breathing as well. Rhinoplasty can restore healthy breathing through correcting problems such as a deviated septum.

Although nose surgery for purely cosmetic reasons is not covered by insurance, many people will receive insurance benefits for functional surgery that repairs problems related to breathing. Regardless of the reasoning behind choosing rhinoplasty, it is a great option for women and men who are unsatisfied with some aspect of their noses.
