Nose Surgery

It’s not uncommon to have a single facial feature that stands out more than the others, disrupting the attractive balance of your face. Often, this feature is the nose.  Also known as rhinoplasty, nose surgery is one of the most common of all plastic surgery procedures.

Nose Surgery Basics

Although many people are candidates for nose surgery, surgeons generally prefer not to operate on teenagers until after they’ve completed their growth spurt. This is usually around age 14 or 15 for girls, and a bit later for boys.

Be sure to tell Dr. Lacombe if you’ve had any previous nasal surgery or have had an injury to your nose, even if it was many years ago. You should also inform him if you have any allergies or breathing difficulties; if you’re taking any medications, vitamins, or recreational drugs; and if you smoke.

The Procedure

Typically, rhinoplasty reduces or increases the size of your nose, changes the shape of the tip or the bridge, narrows the span of the nostrils, or changes the angle between your nose and your upper lip. It may also repair nasal injuries, correct a birth defect, or aid with breathing problems. The procedure can be performed alone or in conjunction with other procedures of the eyes, brow or face.

Most rhinoplasty patients are up and about within a day or two, and able to return to school or sedentary work within a few days following surgery.*

Roderic Wallace Trusts Dr. Victor Lacombe

“Probably one of Dr. Lacombe’s greatest assets is his intuitive understanding of what it takes to create a very natural yet aesthetically pleasing result. In my case, a brow lift opened up my eyes, a subtle lift to the tip of my drooping nose dealt with the negative effects of gravity, a small chin implant balanced a newly sculpted neck and stronger jaw line… yes, a number of procedures done at one time, but oh so worth it in the long run. I can enthusiastically endorse Victor as one of the finest plastic surgeons around.*”
