FAQ for Plastic Surgery BEVERLY HILLS / LOS ANGELES
Am I a Candidate for Rhinoplasty?
If you are unhappy with the appearance of your nose, then you may be a candidate for rhinoplasty. This procedure, also called nose surgery, can be performed to correct a wide range of aesthetic imperfections in your nose. It can also be performed to open up your nasal passages to make breathing easier.
During your initial consultation at our Beverly Hills office, Dr. Richard Ellenbogen will evaluate your nose and listen carefully to your aesthetic goals in order to determine if you are a good candidate for rhinoplasty. While the procedure is commonly performed on young people, it is important that you wait until your nose is fully developed to move forward with your nose surgery. This typically occurs at age 14 or 15 for girls, and in the late teenage years for boys.
Rhinoplasty can be performed to improve the following issues:
- A nose that is too large or too small
- A bent or crooked nose
- Humps or bumps on the bridge of the nose
- A misshapen nose
- A wide nose
- A nose with a bulbous tip
- Flared or pinched nostrils
- Asymmetrical nostrils
Dr. Ellenbogen will consider your entire face when performing your rhinoplasty to make sure that your new nose restores balance to all of your facial features. This approach helps him achieve beautiful, natural looking results.
