Do you wish that your nose was more symmetrical or smaller in size? Over 126,000 men and women in the United States found the solution to their complaints about their nose through rhinoplasty.
This surgery can correct deformities or make subtle aesthetic changes to one's nose for cosmetic purposes, but it can also improve breathing.
Rhinoplasty is functionally and conceptually a very complex procedure, and the specifics of a surgery will depend largely on a patient's needs and preferences. Through the steady hand of a skilled plastic surgeon, a patient can benefit from the following results of rhinoplasty:
- Elimination of bumps or asymmetries
- Lowering or raising of the bridge
- Turning up, turning down or reducing the tip of the nose
- Improved airways through altering the internal nasal structure

Are you a good candidate for rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty is one of the most popular cosmetic surgical procedures in the United States because of its wide-ranging benefits and the balance that it brings to one's face.
If you are unhappy with the nose that you were born with or are dissatisfied with how your nose has changed, you may be a good candidate for this surgery. Like many other types of plastic surgery, rhinoplasty can restore balance to the face and bring increased self-esteem and happiness.
One of the most important elements in what makes a good candidate is expectations. The optimal candidate for rhinoplasty understands that perfection is not always guaranteed and does not expect this surgery to transform them into another person.
Our Board Certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Miranda, strives to achieve the most natural look possible so that you can enjoy your enhanced aesthetic appearance without an over-dramatic look.
It is recommended that patients wait until they are past the growth period that occurs between 14 and 15 years of age before they consider rhinoplasty. Some patients also discover that their nose surgery created the need for additional procedures such as chin liposuction, a facelift, or a brow lift. Whatever your situation may be, it is important to seek counsel from a San Francisco cosmetic surgeon who is Board Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.
