Nasal refinement is perhaps the most popular plastic surgery procedure for the face available today. Commonly referred to as a nose job, nasal refinement can reduce or increase the size of your nose, change the shape of the tip or the bridge, narrow the span of the nostrils, or change the angle between your nose and your upper lip.
Nasal refinement is sometimes performed on patients with a deviated septum or other breathing problems. In this situation, insurance will often cover most of the costs for the procedure. Nasal refinement is also an option for those suffering from certain birth defects.
The ideal nasal septum is straight, separating the left and right sides of the nose into passageways of equal size. Nasal refinement can correct and reshape the tissues and bone to better reflect the structure of a well functioning and attractive nose.
Nasal refinement can be performed inside the nose or in an “open” procedure. The procedure chosen depends on the exact corrections that need to be made and the esthetic goals of the patient. A procedure performed through the nostrils leaves no scarring and “open” procedure can leave minimal signs of surgery.
Given the intricacies of nasal refinement surgery, where a few millimeters may affect the entire outcome, you will be good hands with a skilled surgeon like Dr. Rogers.
