Surgery to Improve The Nose (Rhinoplasty)
One of the most rewarding and gratifying cosmetic procedures performed today is plastic surgery to restructure the nose known as rhinoplasty. Noses come in all shapes and sizes and it is a defining characteristic of your appearance. When you look in the mirror and realize your nose doesn’t seem to “fit” your face, fortunately with rhinoplasty you no longer have to accept your appearance. A too large or crooked nose may be caused by genetics, injury, or illness and people who are self-conscious about their nose often find it difficult to interact comfortably with society. Whether you have an unflattering bump on the bridge of your nose or you feel your nose is not the right shape, The Virginia Institute under the direction of Dr. Trang Vo-Nguyen (Dr. V) is the state-of-the-art facility that will deliver the look you want.Rhinoplasty Details »
Changing the appearance of your nose involves recontouring the cartilage and bone while maintaining or improving breathing function. Your nose has a very specialized anatomy with two main divisions or parts: the internal and external nose. The external nose is the visible portion composed of overlying skin and fat as well as the underlying structural framework. The root of your nose is supported by bone while the tip of your nose contains cartilage. The tip of the nose is flexible while the bony part is rigid and the transition is generally located in the middle of your nose. The internal nose consists of the nasal passages and the central septum divides the two.
