Facial Plastic Surgery (Rhinoplasty)
Rhinoplasty is sometimes referred to as a “nose job” or “nose plastic surgery”. Hundreds of thousands of people every year seek professional consultation concerning the appearance of their nose.
You may need rhinoplasty to change the appearance of your nose, your nose’s ability to function properly, or both. Rhinoplasty may improve your appearance by addressing the proportion of your nose in relation to your face.
The most common type of Rhinoplasty is considered necessary to correct impaired breathing caused by structural abnormalities in the nose, but it is also is performed in many cases for cosmetic reasons, with satisfying results. While the shape of your nose is usually the result of heredity, another reason to consider rhinoplasty would be to address an altered nose due to an injury.
When considering rhinoplasty, our Coral Springs plastic surgery expert will take into account your features and what you would like to change and why. The upper portion of the structure of the nose is bone, and the lower portion is cartilage. Rhinoplasty can modify bone, cartilage, skin or all three. Dr. Ford will work together with you to decide whether rhinoplasty is appropriate for you and what the results can be.
COMMON REASONS WHY PEOPLE CONSIDER HAVING RHINOPLASTY SURGERY:
Functional problems – Particularly breathing issues.
Cosmetic concerns – A bent nose, a prominent bump, issues with the tip of the nose or a desire to achieve a more pleasing aesthetic shape and balance with the rest of your facial features may be addressed with rhinoplasty surgery.
Both functional and cosmetic reasons may be naturally occurring or as a result of trauma. Often there is a combination of several of these aspects to consider.

- If you are a smoker, STOP Smoking
- Have a generally good level of fitness and health
- Know the reasons that you are undergoing this surgery
- Have realistic expectations of a reasonable surgical result.
