Rhinoplasty surgery nor a nose job is intended to change the shape or improve the function of the nose. Types of rhinoplasties include removing a hump on the nose, straightening the bridge, or reshaping the nose’s tip. It is also changing the size of the nostrils and correcting the nose after an injury. Medically rhinoplasty opens breathing passages or repairs cartilage that divides one nostril from the other.
Your ideal nose is indicated by your face shape, your personality, your age and your ethnicity – and it is therefore entirely unique to you.
Historically, many different measures have been used to define a “perfect nose.” Some of these measures contradict one another, and some are weighted towards one ethnicity more than another. If you want to get your version of a “perfect nose,” get a nose job from an experienced surgeon in Los Angeles.
Rhinoplasty is a delicate operation. Many plastic surgeons do not perform rhinoplasty because it requires rigorous planning, precise technique, and an understanding of how surgery today will appear even years later as the nose continues to heal and change. These skills require extensive surgical experience that only some surgeons have mastered.
Rhinoplasty is an outpatient procedure, and there is usually no overnight stay. You may get general or local anesthesia and either sleep through the operation or feel no local pain. Dr. Rawnsley will guide you through the best choice of anesthesia.
Through over two decades of surgery and thousands of rhinoplasties, Dr. Rawnsley has acquired the understanding and skill in rhinoplasty and created “Soft Touch Rhinoplasty.” This approach gently reshapes the nose from the inside. “Soft Touch Rhinoplasty” respects the structural integrity of the nose, reduces healing time, and creates a natural, long-lasting result without a scar.
