Dr. Patel has broad experience with the field of nasal contouring. Whether it be a rhinoplasty for purely aesthetic concerns you desire, or a functional rhinoplasty for breathing concerns, it is an area of great clinical interest to Dr. Patel as a facial plastic surgeon.
The nose is the most defining characteristic of the face. Even a subtle change can dramatically improve the appearance of the whole face. Reshaping or resizing the nose can be accomplished by the movement of underlying structures such as bone and cartilage.
In collaboration with this procedure, many patients will opt for mentoplasty, or chin augmentation. The chin can balance the profile of the face with just a slight change. And since chin augmentation is a relatively straightforward procedure, it can easily be done at the same time as the rhinoplasty. Even though few people dwell on the appearance of their chin, most would agree that a weak chin is not a desirable characteristic.
