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.

Severely Crooked Nose And Bridge Hump Rhinoplasty
This lovely patient had been bothered by her crooked nose and inability to breathe well through it for many years. She also wanted to make her nose appear smaller and to smoothe her bridge hump. Dr. Lamperti noted that the patient had signs of a prior septum injury and a severely deviated septum inside her nose. This septum deviation can even been seen in the before base view photo where the septum fills up most of the left nostril opening. He improved the septum position using an open rhinoplasty approach which allowed him to rebuild the severely crooked septum. Dr. Lamperti also smoothed the patient's bridge and made it look more straight on front view. In the profile photos you can see how the patient's original nose was upturned (rotated) more than ideal. This was due to the patient's septum injury in that area. During the septum reconstruction Dr. Lamperti was able to counter-rotate the tip to make it appear less upturned. In the 1 year after photos you can see how the patient's nose appears more straight and harmonious with the rest of her facial features with a more natural tip rotation. Thanks to the straighter septum she's also able to breathe through her nose much better.
