You probably call this very popular form of surgery a “nose job,” but most surgeons prefer the medical term, rhinoplasty. Rhinoplasty obviously has cosmetic aspects, as the nose is among our most pronounced facial features. At the same time, however, the nose is also an important sensory organ that is crucial for breathing.

Types of Rhinoplasty
- Rhinoplasty – A rhinoplasty can be elected for either cosmetic, or medical reasons. The most common medical reason is to improve the function of their airways. On the cosmetic side, patients often opt for a nose that is smaller, or more sculpted to fit with their other facial features.
- Revision Rhinoplasty – While many patients are extremely pleased with their rhinoplasty results, some feel like the end result was not what they had in mind. BHP has successfully performed rhinoplasty revisions for patients who were dissatisfied with their procedure performed by another doctor.
- Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty – While major corrections typically involve a surgical procedure, many patients have been extremely happy with the results of a non-surgical approach. This method using filler injections to correct minor bumps and humps by smoothing out the area around the bump, creating a straighter bridge.
