Nasal correction, technically known as rhinoplasty, is a cosmetic procedure that dates back more than a thousand years, and it is constantly being improved with newer techniques and technology.If you are concerned about the appearance of a crooked nose, an off-center nose, a bulbous nasal tip, or any other nasal malformation, a rhinoplasty can help you achieve a more ideal nose shape.
Nasal correction surgery is a sophisticated procedure requiring the skills and expertise of board-certified plastic surgeons Drs. Bryan and Kara Criswell. There are many considerations in terms of facial balance, nasal functionality and technical procedures; these considerations will be discussed during a consultation with your plastic surgeon.
Depending on the corrections needed, rhinoplasty can be performed in an “open” or “closed” technique. The open procedure involves incisions along the columella, which allows the plastic surgeon better access to nasal structures. Closed procedures are performed on the inside of the nostrils and are better for hiding surgical marks.
