An overly large or misshapen nose can disrupt your facial symmetry, make you feel self-conscious, and even cause difficulties breathing.

Fortunately, a rhinoplasty or nose reshaping surgery, with Dr. David A. Sherris can enhance your appearance and restore normal function as needed.

Should you consider undergoing rhinoplasty?

A Nose Job Can Transform Your Appearance 

Rhinoplasty, commonly known as a nose job, can reshape, resize, or correct functional issues within the nose. However, rhinoplasty is a complex procedure. Dr. David A. Sherris is a double board-certified surgeon who can provide precise, personalized treatment.
So how does a rhinoplasty work?

What does the treatment process entail?

The Rhinoplasty Procedure

Rhinoplasty surgery typically takes one to two hours to perform and may take place in an outpatient surgery center or a hospital. Dr. Sherris usually recommends undergoing the procedure with general anesthesia to protect your airway and make the procedure safer.

Careful Alterations Are Made to the Nose

As with all types of surgery, there is a risk of complications during and after surgery, including infection and adverse anesthesia reactions. However, in Dr. Sherris' hands, these long-term complications are extremely rare. He will walk you through all the potential risks during your consultation so that you can make a fully-informed decision before committing to surgery.  

Rhinoplasty can correct a diverse range of issues...

Are You a Candidate for Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty can:

  • Change the overall size of the nose
  • Narrow the span of the nostrils
  • Remove a hump
  • Change the angle between the upper lip and the nose
  • Change the shape of either the tip or the bridge of the nose
  • Straighten a crooked nose
  • Improve a collapsed (saddle) nose
  • Relieve breathing problems

Men and women who are physically healthy, realistic in their expectations, and who are looking to improve the appearance of the nose may be good candidates for rhinoplasty. Age is an important factor, however. We generally recommend postponing rhinoplasty until the nose has finished growing, which is typically around age 14 for girls and age 16 for boys.

What should I expect after surgery?

Long-Lasting Results

Although it can take up to a year for the results of your rhinoplasty to finalize, your final outcome can last a lifetime. While the natural effects of aging may affect your nose somewhat, any changes should be very minor overall.

Dr. Sherris has performed over 2000 rhinoplasty surgeries, improving both the appearance and the function of the nose. He can plan your treatment according to your desired outcome and help set realistic expectations for the best possible experience.
