Who Needs Rhinoplasty?

Patients often ask us who should have rhinoplasty. Anyone who is not happy with the shape or size of his or her nose should consider having rhinoplasty. Many patients also come to our practice for rhinoplasty after breaking their nose. If you are unsatisfied with your nose, suffering from breathing problems, or living with a broken nose, discuss your options with Dr. Shektman today.

How is a Rhinoplasty Performed?

The procedure will vary depending on what is being done to the patient’s nose. If Dr. Shektman is reducing the size of the nose, he may need to remove bone or cartilage. Dr. Shektman may also need to use cartilage from the septum to adjust the size and shape of the tip of the nose. Be sure to talk to Dr. Shektman about what he will be doing during the procedure, so you know what to expect.

There are two types of rhinoplasty procedures: open rhinoplasty and closed rhinoplasty. During an open rhinoplasty, the surgeon will make incisions along the strip of tissue that divides the two nostrils. In a closed rhinoplasty, the incisions are made in a concealed area inside the nose. Different approaches are used for different goals.
