Nose surgery

Rhinoplasty

The appearance of the nose is changed to be more aesthetic and pleasing through an operation called a rhinoplasty.  Our UC Davis plastic surgeons can improve your appearance and breathing with natural-looking results.

If necessary, the hump is removed.  Usually the nose is thinned at the tip and slightly elevated.  It is often necessary to narrow the nose at the time of surgery. A splint and packing are removed by the 5th day and most people are able to appear in public comfortably after 10 days. If you have difficulty breathing, your insurance may pay for a portion of the rhinoplasty procedure.
