Rhinoplasty (Nose Surgery)

Rhinoplasty or Nose Surgery

Dr. Hochman, one of the most renowned plastic surgeons working on the East Coast today, is currently viewed by many to be the source for rhinoplasty in Charleston, SC.

Rhinoplasty or nose surgery, is the process of “nose reshaping” in order to provide an individual with improved facial appearance and proportion. This procedure has been the #1 surgery performed in the US for the past three years.

Dr. Hochman’s practice as a surgeon has been built upon his work with patients who’ve come to him with a variety of challenges. His work as a rhinoplasty surgeon showcases his appreciation and understanding of the aesthetic requirements necessary to provide his patients dramatic results.

While the shape of one’s nose is generally the result of heredity, the appearance can be altered by a physician in order to achieve the balance and symmetry necessary to provide the patient his or her most beautiful face.

Aspects of Your Nose Dr. Hochman Can Refine with Rhinoplasty

Blending Aesthetics and Science in Plastic Surgery

Dr. Hochman is committed to the belief that facial cosmetic surgery requires more than simply a science and the application of surgical skills. Cosmetic surgery requires not only the requisite scientific skill, but also the patience and an appreciation for proportion and form that is normally attributed to those in the artistic fields.
