Your nose is your most prominent facial feature. If the nose shape is unusual or out of proportion with your other features, it can be a distraction, with an impact on your confidence and self-esteem.

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.

    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.

    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.
