Our rhinoplasty in Seattle is a very popular plastic surgery procedure. In fact, The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) reports that nose reshaping ranks number three in the nation among cosmetic surgery procedures, with 223,000 surgeries performed in a recent year.
Rhinoplasty is performed on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia. There are various approaches to our rhinoplasty in Seattle. These include open or a closed technique depending on the architecture of the nose and the relative technical difficulty of the procedure.
All aspects of the nose can be reshaped. Specific attention is given to the relationship of the width, length, and the tip of the nose.
Occasionally, a functional defect such as a deviated septum will be addressed.
