What Is A Rhinoplasty?
A rhinoplasty, often called a nose job, is a procedure “that is usually performed to enhance the appearance of the nose. During this type of rhinoplasty, the nasal cartilage and bones are modified, or tissue is added. Rhinoplasty is also performed to repair nasal fractures and other structural problems. In these cases, the goal is to restore pre-injury appearance or to create a normal appearance”. (medicinenet.com)
During his career as a plastic surgeon in Los Angeles and Santa Barbara, Dr. Keller has performed countless rhinoplasties, and has observed dramatic results in his satisfied patients after surgery. Most patients considering a nose job are seeking to improve a particular “problem area,” or perceived flaw. Some of the issues that Dr. Keller’s rhinoplasty procedure has had the most dramatic and long-lasting effects on include:
- Removing a hump or ridge on the bridge of the nose.
- Reducing or enlarging the width of the nasal bridge.
- Altering the size, shape, or angle of the nostrils.
- Correcting the distance or angle between the nose and upper lip.
At times, Dr. Keller also treats patients who find themselves in need of a nose job to treat structural problems caused by medical conditions, injuries, and genetic conditions that cause difficulty breathing, such as a deviated septum.
