This 24-year-old female was unhappy with the shape and size of her nose. She wanted to reduce the bump on the bridge of her nose, decrease the width of her nose and correct the plunging tip. Women and men who are concerned with the appearance of their noses have a number of surgical options. Dr. Richard Chaffoo, a triple board-certified plastic surgeon and rhinoplasty specialist in San Diego, customizes these procedures to achieve subtle and natural-looking enhancements.

Rhinoplasty incisions can be made on the inside or outside of the nose, depending on the extent of surgery and type of contouring that is required. This patient learned about her options during a consultation with Dr. Chaffoo and was given a chance to express any fears and discuss her concerns about the procedure. Dr. Chaffoo customized a rhinoplasty procedure for her, targeting the precise areas that she wanted fixed.

After her nose had healed, this patient returned to our practice to have photos taken. As can be seen in the picture, her smaller nose complements the shape and size of her face. Women and men who opt for a nose job in San Diego can have their problems with breathing corrected during the same procedure. Less-obstructed breathing can help make physical activities easier and more comfortable.
