As the central feature of the face, the nose plays an important role in one’s overall appearance. However, many people feel uncomfortable about the size, shape, or alignment of their nose and opt to have cosmetic surgery to create a more attractive face with better proportions. The goal of the rhinoplasty procedure at our Baltimore, Maryland area offices is to help patients achieve a natural-looking nose that blends seamlessly with their other features. Rhinoplasty at our Baltimore, Maryland area offices is typically performed as an outpatient procedure, under either general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation. Side effects are temporary and may include bruising, swelling, and discomfort. Most patients are able to return to work and light activities in as little as one week.
Rhinoplasty is commonly referred to as a “nose job.” The surgery is intended to change the shape, size, or projection of the nose, ultimately resulting in a more proportionate look that is harmonious with the other facial features. Rhinoplasty can also be useful in improving the function of the nose and address breathing problems. A rhinoplasty can improve symmetry, remove a hump on the bridge of the nose, reduce a wide bridge or nostrils, or revise an enlarged, drooping, bulbous, or upturned nasal tip among other concerns.

Rhinoplasty can be a good option for patients who wish to change the shape, size, or projection of their nose or who have breathing issues due to problems such as a deviated septum. Before choosing a rhinoplasty, you should be generally healthy overall and a nonsmoker. Patients should also avoid rhinoplasty until their facial growth is complete, which typically occurs between ages 16-20. Finally, rhinoplasty candidates must have realistic expectations and goals for the procedure. Dr. Rosenberg will determine whether you are a suitable candidate for rhinoplasty after a consultation.
