A nose job, or rhinoplasty, seeks to restore proper anatomic structural alignment of the nose by sculpting the bone and cartilage to obtain smooth and harmonious results, while preserving your ethnic identity and facilitating improved breathing. Dr. Snider’s specialized training in craniofacial surgery provides her with the ability to provide improved aesthetic and functional outcomes, achieving elegant and lasting results.
The nasal septum is the wall that divides your inner nose into two sides with two nostrils. If you have a deviated, or crooked, septum, it can impair your breathing. Dr. Snider will realign and straighten the cartilage and bone of the septum to open the airway and improve your nasal breathing. This will often lead to a straighter appearing nose, and can be combined with a rhinoplasty for best results.
Nasal trauma can lead to changes in the nose that influence your overall facial appearance and nasal breathing. Nasal trauma typically affects the nasal bones and nasal septum, leading to visible asymmetries. Dr. Snider provides an individual plan of care to restore your nose back to its original shape, improve its overall appearance, and enhance nasal breathing.
Chin Augmentation or Reduction
The chin may be large or small in comparison to other facial proportions. A mentoplasty or genioplasty can be performed to either enhance or reduce the chin point. Often, the chin position can have an impact on the perceived nose position. A genioplasty at the time of rhinoplasty may be performed to rebalance the face and provide a more harmonious appearance overall. Jaw (orthognathic) surgery can also be performed to realign your teeth and occlusion at the same time as repositioning the chin.
