Top Reasons Patients Seek Rhinoplasty

Profile of a young beautiful woman.

For decades, rhinoplasty has remained one of the most requested plastic surgery procedures for both men and women. Since the nose is so influential on the appearance of the face, it can make a dramatic difference when it is reshaped. Oddly shaped or damaged noses may distract from the rest of the facial features. There are specific nose features or reasons that commonly trigger people to seek a rhinoplasty consultation.

Size: Reduction Surgery

The most common complaint about noses from patients is the size. While there are those who want to increase the height of their nose, most size complaints are about noses that are too large. Reduction rhinoplasty is very popular, which can be used to resize the nose to appear more balanced with the rest of the facial features.

Tip: Refinement Surgery

The tip of the nose can be a problem area. Some individuals have an upturned or rotated nasal tip that can make nostrils appear larger. Other nasal tip issues include a bulbous, pinched or hooked/droopy appearance. Refinement rhinoplasty can reshape the nasal tip for a more attractive appearance.

Crooked: Bridge Reshaping Surgery

Broken noses that were not set correctly or a deviated septum can result in a crooked nose. The bridge of the nose may curve to the right or left, distracting the eye from other features. A bridge reshaping surgery can restore a straight nose. If there is extensive structure damage to the bridge or septum, cartilage grafting may be required to support the new nose shape.

Genetic Features: Ethnic Rhinoplasty

Ethnicity plays a large role in the nose shape. It is also one of the biggest reasons patients seek a rhinoplasty procedure. Pronounced ethnic nasal features can have aesthetic consequences. Ethic rhinoplasty can reshape the nose to tone down overly ethnic traits for a more refined shape that still matches the patient’s ethnic face and features.

“Nose job” surgery can have a beautiful impact on the overall facial appearance. Regardless of why you want to change the shape of your nose, you want to choose a rhinoplasty specialist like Dr. Maurice Khosh to perform your procedure.

What Dr. Khosh's Patients Say

Meredith G.
Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!
Jackie C.
Great front office, really good experience after what was a terrible accident. I was made to feel comfortable. Dr. Khosh is very good at what he does. I'm still healing but I'm confident of the results

After visiting and being evaluated by several doctors, I kept going back to Dr. Khosh. His tranquil spirit and professionalism were captivating. Thank you for a job well done and keeping me calm throughout the entire process. A special thanks to your staff Susan and Christine for all of their support as well. Hi highly recommend Dr. Khosh.

Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
Courtney G.
AMAZING!!!!!! I had Dr Khosh perform lipo on my chin/neck and my result is unbelievable! Better than I could have expected! I met with a couple of surgeons and the second I met with Dr Khosh I knew he was the one I was going with. He was compassionate and explained every detail of what would take place during the surgery and what to expect during recovery. I even emailed a few times during recovery with various questions and he got right back to me asap which was really comforting! I honestly fully recommend Dr Khosh, he did an amazing job and is an amazing person.

i can finally breathe!! Dr. Khosh made the entire experience a breeze, it was truly a pleasure to be under his care. I am forever thankful and highly recommend him. Not only does his work speak for himself, but he has excellent bedside manner. His kindness and patience is above and beyond. He takes the time to answer to every question you have to help you understand the process while at the same time making you feel so comfortable. From the first consultation i knew i was in good hands. I am so pleased with the result and forever thankful.
