Rhinoplasty, also commonly known as a “nose job,” is a plastic surgery procedure that changes the nose’s structure or improves its appearance.
The rhinoplasty procedure is one of the most requested plastic surgery procedures in the United States, with more than 200,000 nose-reshaping surgeries performed each year.
As a dual board-certified otolaryngologist (ear, nose and throat specialist) and plastic surgeon, Dr. Peterson is very experienced in performing rhinoplasty surgery.
Why is it so common? One reason is that the nose is a very prominent facial feature. So, flaws like bumps, hooks, humps or other deformations can be noticeable — and can make you feel self-conscious.
