Rhinoplasty, Nose Job Surgery
An attractive face is not just one or two features, but it is a harmonious blending of eyes, lips, cheekbones, nose and chin that complement each other. Each plays their part in the overall appearance of the face. However, when a central feature like the nose overshadows the rest due to its size or shape, it can be the first thing that others notice. Rhinoplasty can soften or blend the nose into the face, creating a more attractive appearance for those that undergo this procedure.
Rhinoplasty is one of the most popular facial plastic surgery procedures requested. Due to the prominence of the nose, it can become a defining feature. The “nose job” is used to reduce the size or reshape the nose so that it is no longer the focus point of the face, allowing the eyes, mouth and other features to shine. When performed by an experienced, talented facial plastic surgeon, it can transform the look of the patient by blending it in with their other features.

Is Rhinoplasty Right for You?
An elective surgery is a major decision, especially when it will change the appearance of your face. Rhinoplasty can have a positive impact on your appearance and self-confidence, but it is vital to understand the procedure. It is important to have an experienced facial plastic surgeon to get the results you desire.
There are two main reasons people seek rhinoplasty: form and function. First and most importantly, your nose is a breathing apparatus. For some, rhinoplasty is used to help improve their breathing or to minimize sinus issues. If function is not an issue, then form is the concern. Some of the main reasons people choose to have a nose job surgery for aesthetic reasons include:
- Too large or out of balance with other facial features
- Too wide at the bridge or too large of nostrils
- Humps or depressions on the bridge of the nose
- A bulbous, hooked, upturned or drooping nasal tip
- A crooked nose or other damage
- Noses that are not symmetrical
To make these changes in our patients' noses, Dr. Ben Stong uses the latest techniques and advanced methods in rhinoplasty. He has proven results in both open and closed nose job procedures. Closed rhinoplasty is performed through the nostril and can be used to address bridge issues like humps or depressions. However, for more intricate or precise reshaping of the nostrils or nasal tip, open rhinoplasty offers more advanced results.
With open rhinoplasty, the incision is made at the base of the nose between the nostrils. While not completely hidden as with the closed procedure, Dr. Stong is an expert at hiding this small scar so it is unnoticeable. This method allows him more visibility when performing his artistry, benefiting the patient with excellent results.
