This 23-year-old female patient had a history of nasal trauma and was unhappy with the appearance of her nose. She looked in La Jolla for a cosmetic surgery specialist who could help her achieve her functional and cosmetic goals. Often, women and men find that breathing obstructions can make physical activities difficult and uncomfortable, leading them to seek the help of a qualified surgeon.

This patient visited Dr. Richard Chaffoo to learn about her options for surgery. Dr. Chaffoo, who is certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, designed a surgical plan to meet her individual needs. Together, they decided she should have septorhinoplasty for optimal results. Septorhinoplasty can both remove internal obstructions to breathing and improve the appearance of the nose.

After recovering, this patient returned to our practice to have photos taken of her new nose and to share how happy she was with her results. Although recovery times for procedures such as rhinoplasty in San Diego vary depending on the extent of the individual surgery, Dr. Chaffoo's patients are often able to return to work and other activities within a week.
