What is rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty, also known as nasal surgery or a nose job, is a plastic surgery procedure designed to alter the external appearance of the nose. Changes may include a reduction or increase in the overall size, the removal of a hump, alterations of a bulbous nasal tip, or repair of poorly shaped nostrils. Functional problems such as chronic congestion can also be corrected with rhinoplasty surgery for healthier breathing and better sleep.

What can a rhinoplasty do for my look?

Rhinoplasty is a surgery to dramatically improve the shape, size, or projection of the nose. The surgical procedure can correct:

  • A hump on the bridge
  • An overly large nose structure
  • A bulbous tip
  • A hanging tip
  • A pinched tip
  • An uneven nasal structure
  • Overly long or wide nostrils
  • A flatter bridge
  • A wide bridge

A custom rhinoplasty can also correct breathing issues such as chronic congestion.

    Your private consultation

    • Before scheduling a rhinoplasty, you will have a private consultation with Dr. Moynihan.
    • This initial visit will provide the opportunity to develop mutual trust. Dr. Moynihan will start out by performing a brief physical exam of your inner and outer nasal structures.
    • As a leading rhinoplasty specialist in Chicago, Dr. Moynihan reviews your medical history and current medications, and will speak with you so he fully understands your aesthetic goals. He will explain the surgical and less invasive options to enhance nose structure.
    • Dr. Moynihan will use cutting-edge computer imagery and before and after photos of his recent rhinoplasty patients to help you visualize how you will look once your nose is reshaped and refined.
    • If rhinoplasty is determined to be the most appropriate procedure for you, a unique surgical plan will be created.

    Photo imaging

    Have you ever wondered what you would look like if you had a less prominent nasal bridge, a shorter tip, or a narrower bridge and nostrils? Well, now you can! At Gold Coast Plastic Surgery, we have the most advanced technology to take your current photo and transform it to show you what you can look like after surgery. This is a great way for patients to communicate their desires and concerns to Dr. Moynihan. The end result is geared to be balanced and in harmony with your other facial features, bringing out the best in your natural beauty.

    What our clients say about rhinoplasty

      • One of the most rewarding aspects of rhinoplasty is listening to what our clients have to say, which typically is along the lines of:
      • Healing was faster than expected
      • Was surprisingly not painful 
      • The early stages of recovery involve mouth breathing, which was challenging
      • I am happy already at week one 
      • Long term, I am so happy, and I can’t believe that no one has said anything.

      Benefits of nose reshaping surgery

      • Increased self-confidence is one of the biggest benefits of rhinoplasty surgery in Chicago. Research shows that it is natural for humans to look at other people’s eyes first, followed by their noses. This may come as no surprise considering that the nose is your face’s most prominent feature. It will readily attract attention — the kind you want or the kind you wish didn’t happen.
      • A septoplasty can help improve breathing by straightening the bone and cartilage that separates the nostrils. For those who struggle to breathe through the nose, a septoplasty can be performed along with rhinoplasty to restore breathing function.
      • Top rhinoplasty surgeons understand that symmetrical and straight noses can quickly add to overall facial appeal, while an uneven or oddly shaped nose draws attention away from your other attractive features.
