Considering the prominence of the nose, it makes sense that any flaws it displays are amplified. Cosmetic nose surgery, otherwise known as rhinoplasty, is a facial procedure intended to reshape or resize the nose. The surgery is commonly used to correct bumps, indentations or other defects of the nose.

During nose surgery, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gregory Park will make an incision to access bone and cartilage within the nose. Most of the time, the incisions are hidden inside the nose. Depending on the patient’s aesthetic goals, bone or cartilage may be removed or other tissue could be added. The procedure can be performed under general or local anesthesia, and most patients are able to return home the same day.
