Nose Reshaping


Nose reshaping (rhinoplasty) can reduce the size of the nose, improve the tip or the bridge, remove a bump, narrow or widen the width or even improve the angle between the nose and the upper lip.  Rhinoplasty can be performed either to meet aesthetic goals or for reconstructive purposes - to correct birth defects or breathing problems.  Dr. Lincenberg will discuss your reshaping goal with you during the consultation and pre-operative visit.

During the surgery, the skin of the nose is separated from its supporting framework of bone and cartilage, which is then sculpted to the desired shape. Then, the skin is redraped over the new framework.   Most rhinoplasty surgeries are performed from within the nose, with the incision inside the nostrils.  In some cases, however, the incision is made at the base of the nose.
