Experienced Facial Plastic Surgeon Specializing in Nose Surgery
The rhinoplasty operation is the most common procedure done at the Seattle Rhinoplasty Center. A private consultation with Dr. William Portuese will last approximately one hour in our office. There are many reasons why a rhinoplasty is performed such as reducing a large hump on the nose or other areas of the nose that are out of balance with the rest of the facial features such as a wide nose, a wide, boxy, bulbous tip. A droopy nasal tip can also be elevated to improve the aesthetic profile. A fractured or broken nose can simply be reset back to its normal pre-injury state. A rhinoplasty can be performed at the same time as a broken nose repair if a cosmetic change is desired. Typically, any cosmetic surgery is billed directly to the patient, and any functional or reconstructive surgery is billed to the patient’s healthcare insurance. A fractured nose typically makes the nose look crooked both in the cartilaginous and bony compartments whereby the nose bones are fractured, and sometimes a spreader graft of structural cartilage will have to be performed to widen a pinched upper lateral cartilage. Revision rhinoplasty surgeries are also performed at The Seattle Rhinoplasty Center on a frequent basis for complications arising from previous surgery done elsewhere.
