What Changes Can Be Made With a Rhinoplasty?

A rhinoplasty can be used to make a variety of both subtle and dramatic cosmetic adjustments to your nose. While many patients want to reduce the size of their nose, others also desire a more balanced, symmetrical appearance. Depending on your specific goals, Dr. Ronald Schuster can create a customized solution that is functional and aesthetically pleasing.


One of the most common reasons patients seek out nose surgery is to correct crookedness. Nose crookedness can be caused by past injuries or congenital abnormalities like a deviated septum. Although a crooked nose may seem like strictly a cosmetic issue, it can also make it more difficult to breathe. A rhinoplasty can address all of these concerns by straightening the nose and improving airflow.

Reduced Size or Projection

If you have a large, wide nose with an elevated bridge, a rhinoplasty can help reduce its size and make it more proportionate to the rest of your face. Having a large nose is mostly a result of genetics but can also be caused by other factors such as age, trauma, and skin buildup. This makes the nose protrude farther from the face, which can be very noticeable from the side.

Tip Refinement

Another common issue that patients want to rectify is the appearance of the tip of their nose. Whether you want to eliminate a pointy, bulbous, or droopy tip, a rhinoplasty can help refine the shape and size of your nose tip.

Nostril Size Alterations

Many people find that their nostrils are either too large, small, or flared. As a result, the overall appearance of the nose can look disproportionate to the rest of the face. With rhinoplasty surgery, you can adjust the shape and angle of your nostrils to a more desired look.
