When is rhinoplasty appropriate?

Plastic Surgeons serving Denver, Littleton, and Surrounding Areas in Colorado


For many Denver-area patients, the nose is the source of significant insecurity and disappointment. The fact is that an overly large or prominent nose can dominate an otherwise aesthetically appealing face.

A rhinoplasty can help- it's one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries in the country, and it has a proven track record of success and safety. But it's important to only undergo a rhinoplasty if it's the right procedure for you.

The rhinoplasty has significant aesthetic benefits, and it's an excellent option if you want to address one of the following cosmetic concerns:

  • An overly large or prominent nose

  • A noticeable bump in the bridge of your nose

  • A “hooked” tip of the nose

  • A crooked or skewed nose

However, the rhinoplasty also has medical benefits. It's an excellent option if you struggle to breathe through your nose or if you've broken your nose recently. In these cases, insurance might cover your procedure.

To be a good candidate for a rhinoplasty, you should be in good overall health and possess reasonable expectations for the procedure. It's also a good idea to wait until you're old enough and your nose has finished fully developing.
