Rhinoplasty, commonly known as a “nose job”, is a procedure that is performed to change/correct the appearance of the nose. This procedure is usually performed for cosmetic purposes, but it may be used to correct a deformity or to help the patient breathe better. A nose job is one of the most common plastic surgeries performed today.
Who is the ideal candidate for rhinoplasty in Miami?
The ideal candidate for rhinoplasty surgery is someone who is healthy and at least 15 years old. Doctors will usually not perform this procedure on a patient who is under the age of 15 because the nose is still developing. Patients need to have realistic expectations about the way they expect to look after surgery. Dr. Enrique Hanabergh Jr., M.D. in Miami can guide you through the rhinoplasty services and provide insight as to what the final result will look like.
