Redirect the focus to your eyes. The nose is not meant to be the focus of the face. Rhinoplasty, or nose reshaping surgery, can create a more refined and proportioned nose that not only looks better but also functions better.

Closed Rhinoplasty With Radix Grafting And Nostril Width Reduction
This Seattle rhinoplasty patient wanted to reduce the size of his nostrils along with augment the upper part of his bridge to address a pseudohump deformity. Dr. Lamperti performed a closed septo-rhinoplasty in which septal cartilage was harvested to then create a radix graft that was inserted at the upper portion of the bridge via a hidden incision inside the patient's nose. Next, Dr. Lamperti performed an alar base wedge excision to subtly reduce the width of the patient's nostrils. In the one year postoperative photos you can see how a more masculine bridge is seen on profile view. The radix graft had the secondary benefit of softening the patient's brow ridge. You can also see on base view how a natural appearing, more narrow nasal tip width is now evident. Lastly, on oblique view you can notice how the alar wedge incision line scar is seemlessly hidden into the patient's alar-facial crease. No staged scar dermabrasion was used.
