  • RECOVERY TIME
  • ADDITIONAL INFO
  • Nasal surgery (rhinoplasty) can reshape or improve the appearance and proportion of your nose, enhancing facial harmony and self confidence. It may also correct impaired breathing caused by structural abnormalities in the nose.

    Rhinoplasty surgery can change:

    Nose size, in relation to the other facial structures

    Nose width, at the bridge

    Nose profile, with visible humps or depressions on the bridge

    Nasal tip, that is large or bulbous, drooping, or too upturned

    Nostrils that are large, wide or upturned

    Nasal asymmetry and deviation

  • Best Candidate:

    Your facial growth is complete and you are 13 years of age or older

    Your nose appears too large for your face.

    There is a bump on the nasal bridge when viewed in profile.

    Your nose seems too wide when viewed from the front.

    The nasal tip droops, plunges is thickened or enlarged.

    Your nostrils are excessively flared.

    Your nose is off center or crooked.

    Previous injury has made your nose asymmetrical. 

    Cosmetic nasal surgery is a highly individualized procedure.

    Dr. LaTrenta will be happy to discuss your options and make recommendations specific to your case.


  • Rhinoplasty usually takes an hour. It is performed in the office under intravenous sedation.

    During surgery the skin of the nose is separated from its supporting framework of bone and cartilage, which is then sculpted to the desired shape. The incisions and resultant scars, are well hidden, if seen at all.The nature of the sculpting depends on your problem.

    Finally, the skin is redraped over the new framework.

  • Most rhinoplasty patients are up and about within two days, and able to return to school or work in a week.

    A protective plastic splint is removed in 3-5 days.

    It will be several weeks to months, however, before your result can be appreciated.

  • For additional information on nasal surgery and how it may benefit you, please schedule a consultation with

    Dr. LaTrenta.
