Aesthetic nose surgery (rhinoplasty) is generally performed to reduce the overall size of the nose, reshape the tip of the nose, remove a nasal hump or improve a poor angle between the nose and the upper lip.
People choose rhinoplasty for a number of reasons. If you feel that your nose does not fit with the rest of your face, or creates an imbalanced appearance, then you may be interested in nasal surgery. Nose reshaping is also appropriate if the nose has been disfigured due to an injury, birth defect, or disease.
Dr. Montegut carefully sculpts the nose to produce a more attractive appearance that is in better proportion to the rest of your face. The result is a nose that fits your face and looks natural.
If you need to improve your breathing, correction of a deviated septum (septoplasty) may also be appropriate. An additional procedure that may enhance the result of a rhinoplasty is a chin enlargement to create a more symmetrical appearance.
Rhinoplasty is performed in our Newport Beach facility on an outpatient basis under local or general anesthesia.
Initial discomfort is easily controlled with oral medication. The majority of swelling and bruising subsides progressively, and internal sutures will dissolve.
