What is Nose Surgery?

Also known as rhinoplasty, nose surgery improves the appearance and proportion of your nose, enhancing facial harmony and self confidence.



Am I a candidate for Nose Surgery?

Am I a candidate for Nose Surgery?

Nose surgery is a highly individualized procedure and you should do it for yourself, not to fulfill someone else's desires or to try to fit any sort of ideal image. Surgery of the nose is a good option for you if:

  • Your facial growth is complete and you are 13 years of age or older
  • You are physically healthy
  • You don't smoke
  • You have a positive outlook and specific, but realistic goals in mind for the improvement of your appearance



How is Nose Surgery done?

How is Nose Surgery done?

Step 1 - Anesthesia

Medications are administered for your comfort during the surgical procedure. The choices include intravenous sedation or general anesthesia. Your doctor will recommend the best choice for you.

Step 2 - The incision

Surgery of the nose is performed either using a closed procedure, where incisions are hidden inside the nose, or an open procedure, where an incision is made across the columella, the narrow strip of tissue that separates the nostrils.

Through these incisions, the soft tissues that cover the nose are gently raised, allowing access to reshape the structure of the nose.

Step 3 - Reshaping the nose structure

Surgery of the nose can reduce or augment nasal structures with the use of cartilage grafted from other areas of your body.

If the nose is augmented, pieces of cartilage from the septum are used for this purpose.


Occasionally a piece of cartilage from the ear and rarely a section of rib cartilage can be used.

Step 4 - Closing the incision

Once the underlying structure of the nose is sculpted to the desired shape, nasal skin and tissue is redraped and incisions are closed. Additional incisions may be placed in the natural creases of the nostrils to alter their size.

Step 5 - See the results

Dr. Strinden avoids the use of splints and internal tubes.

While initial swelling subsides within a few weeks, it may take months for your new nasal contour to fully refine.

During this time you may notice gradual changes in the appearance of your nose as it refines to a more permanent outcome. Swelling may come and go and worsen in the morning during the months following your nose surgery.
