Cosmetic Rhinoplasty in Las Cruces
If you live in the Las Cruces, ElPaso or Juarez area and are not satisfied with the appearance of your nose, cosmetic rhinoplasty may be right for you. Our Board-Certified plastic surgeon has had years of experience solely operating on noses.
Rhinoplasty is the term used for surgery undertaken exclusively to improve the appearance of the nose. A patient may be dissatisfied with the appearance of their nose for any number of reasons. There is no perfect nose, and there is no nose that would look good on just everyone’s face. There is, however, a general cosmetic ideal that is a starting place for every nose that I operate on; the nose should not attract attention. The seat of beauty is the eyes. A cosmetic nasal deformity distracts attention from your eyes.
Our Approach to Rhinoplasty
My initial guiding principle when I approach your nose is to make only those changes which will make your nose less obvious when people look at you, allowing their attention to fall immediately and fully on your eyes and remain there. Beginning with this principle, I approach your nose from a fresh perspective, and formulate a unique plan to accomplish our goals. My tendency is to be conservative; if we are too aggressive, a surgically altered nose can attract attention just like one that has not been operated.
Remember, cosmetic rhinoplasty is not reimbursed by insurance. However, if you are pairing this procedure with functional rhinoplasty (used to remove nasal obstructions and restore proper breathing), you can save both time and money by having these procedures at the same time.
