If you’re considering rhinoplasty
Rhinoplasty, or surgery to reshape the nose, can reduce or increase the size of a nose, change the shape of the tip or the bridge, narrow the span of the nostrils, or change the angle between the nose and upper lip. It may also correct a birth defect or injury, or help relieve some breathing problems.
Are you a candidate for rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty can be performed to meet aesthetic goals or for reconstructive purposes. The best candidates for rhinoplasty are people who are healthy and are looking for improvement, not perfection, in the way they look.
Planning your consultation
In your initial consultation, Dr. Hosn will spend the time you need to define your goals, perform a complete examination and make recommendations pertaining to possible surgical procedures that may benefit you. Our office is committed to educate you on the procedure and the risks, benefits, and alternatives. The typical patient will meet with Dr. Hosn three times before each major medical procedure in an effort to achieve a beautiful result performed as safely as possible.
