Top Reasons to Consider Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty, nose surgery or 'nose job', is the process of “nose reshaping” in order to provide an individual with improved facial appearance and proportion. This procedure has been in the top three most popular cosmetic surgeries performed in the U.S. each year.

Small changes to the nose can make a big impact and boost self-confidence. Different people have different features, so there’s no one nose that fits every face.

Dr. Hochman’s practice as a surgeon has been built upon his work with patients who have come to him with a variety of challenges. He uniquely combines his extensive reconstructive and cosmetic expertise restoring form and function. His work as a rhinoplasty surgeon showcases his appreciation and understanding of the aesthetic requirements necessary to provide his patients with natural 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. It involves more than making your nose smaller. It needs to look natural and complement all of your facial features with the right size, width, and angles. No face is perfectly symmetrical, but certain asymmetrical features, like the nose, tend to be more evident.

Throughout the aging process, our noses and chins continue to droop like our other body parts. So if you feel your nose has gotten bigger and is drooping from the pull of gravity, it might have. Dr. Hochman can make your face look younger by adding a more youthful balance to your nose.

  • Relational size of the nose to the rest of the face

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.
