A nose that fits your face

People with aesthetic and/or functional problems with their noses are typically good candidates for rhinoplasty. Suitable rhinoplasty candidates have oversized, wide or crooked noses, upturned or drooping nasal tips or nasal deformity.


Dr. Bhrany can take one of two approaches to rhinoplasty: open or closed. During an open rhinoplasty, he makes a small incision in the columella (the strip of skin separating the nostrils); during a closed rhinoplasty, he makes incisions within the nostrils.


In the first couple of days after surgery, it’s important to keep the head elevated at all times and avoid bending, heavy lifting or strenuous activities. Dr. Bhrany can prescribe pain medications to alleviate any discomfort.

Ideal Candidates for Rhinoplasty
  • Are in good health
  • Have realistic expectations about what the surgery can accomplish
  • Have a bump on the nasal bridge when viewed in profile
  • The nose appears too large for the face
  • The nose seems too wide when viewed from the front
  • The nasal tip droops or plunges downward
  • The tip is thickened or enlarged
