Dr. Peterson has performed many nose surgeries, also known as rhinoplasties. He is board certified in ear, nose, and throat medicine and is a highly qualified plastic surgeon. This nasal reconstruction surgery is a common plastic surgery procedure that corrects deformities of the nose. It is one of the most requested plastic surgeries because the nose is a prominent facial feature. Common reasons why people choose nose surgery is to remove bumps or deformations on the nose, change the size or shape of the nose, or to change the angle of the nose.

Some people have difficulty breathing or have a deviated septum, which is a defect of the cartilage and bone that separates the nose into two nostrils. This can be caused at birth or by a trauma or accident that breaks or damages the nose.

In a rhinoplasty, Dr. Peterson works with bone and cartilage to reform or reshape the nose. The recovery takes one to two weeks. During the first week the patient wears a light splint to maintain the reshaping of the nose.
