Rhinoplasty Case #99
Cosmetic Facial Surgeon: Dr. Richard Rival
Procedures Performed: Rhinoplasty
This young woman disliked her nose particularly her profile. She was found to have a dorsal hump on the bridge, a somewhat wide tip that was slightly overprojected. It was also noted that her nose deviated to the left. She underwent a closed rhinoplasty to reduce the bridge, refine the tip and straighten the nose. Results of closed rhinoplasty in Toronto are shown at 10 months after surgery. Prospective patients can usually visualize what their nose will look like from the side but have trouble imagining what the change will be from the front. In general we hope that after rhinoplasty the nose will appear less prominent and there will be more focus on the eyes. This can be seen nicely in her post operative frontal view.
