Nose Surgeries We Offer

Nose Plastic Surgery can come with a lot to think about. Here, we break down the terms so that you can understand what surgery options are available to you and what might be the best pick for you.


Septoplasty is a surgical procedure to straighten the bone and cartilage dividing the space between your two nostrils (septum).


Rhinoplasty is surgery that changes the shape of the nose.


Turbinoplasty involves removal of the bone of the turbinate and half of the mucosal lining of the turbinate, leaving the other half of the mucosa to cover the area from where the bone was removed. This increases the rate of healing and reduces the amount of crusting after surgery.


Alarplasty, also known as alar trimming, and alar or nostril reduction surgery, is a cosmetic procedure that changes the shape and width of your nostrils.


An ethmoidectomy removes infected tissue and bone in the ethmoid sinuses that blocks natural drainage.


A polypectomy is the surgical removal of a polyp.
