There Is A Variety Of Techniques For Addressing The Nose

The nose is one of the most noticeable features about a person so it is no wonder that some people wish to enhance this area if it is affecting their self-esteem. We offer several surgical and non-surgical procedures that are tailored to help each patient seeking some form of nose job.

Open rhinoplasty

A surgical technique where an external incision is made to access and reshape the nasal structures, providing greater visibility and control.

Closed rhinoplasty

A less invasive surgical approach where incisions are made within the nostrils, leaving no visible external scars, and the nasal structures are adjusted internally.


A procedure focused on correcting a deviated septum to improve nasal breathing and alignment.

Alar base reduction

Targeted reduction of the base of the nostrils to refine the appearance of flared or wide nostrils.

Tip plasty

A technique to enhance or refine the nasal tip, achieving desired shape and projection.

Bridge augmentation

The addition of grafts or implants to build up and improve the nasal bridge's contour and height.

Revision rhinoplasty

A corrective procedure performed to address issues or dissatisfaction from a previous rhinoplasty surgery.

Unhappy With A Previous Nose Job?

If you have had a previous rhinoplasty that you are dissatisfied with, we can help. A revision rhinoplasty, often referred to as secondary rhinoplasty, is a surgical procedure performed to address and correct issues or concerns resulting from a previous nose surgery. This specialized procedure is aimed at refining the nasal appearance or improving functionality when the initial rhinoplasty did not achieve the desired results or led to complications.

The benefits of revision rhinoplasty include the opportunity to achieve the desired aesthetic outcome, enhance nasal function, and address any issues that may have arisen from previous surgery, ultimately providing patients with increased satisfaction and confidence in their nasal appearance and function.

Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty Options

Non-surgical rhinoplasty offers non-invasive alternatives to traditional surgical procedures for reshaping and enhancing the nose. Common options include dermal fillers and injectables, which can address various concerns without the need for surgery. These non-surgical options offer benefits such as minimal downtime, quick results, and the ability to adjust or reverse the effects if desired. Dr. Lisa J. Learn provides a range of non-surgical rhinoplasty options to help patients achieve their desired nasal appearance while avoiding the surgical route.

The Typical Nose Surgery Procedure

After an in-depth consultation to discuss what you want to address about your nose and create an individualized plan to achieve that result, you will set a date for the surgery. The day of your rhinoplasty procedure generally goes as follows:

  • Anesthesia: On the day of the surgery, you will be administered anesthesia to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure.
  • Incisions: Careful incisions are made, typically hidden inside the nostrils (closed rhinoplasty) or across the base of the nose (open rhinoplasty).
  • Reshaping the Nose: Dr. Learn will reshape the underlying bone and cartilage to achieve the desired nasal appearance, addressing any functional issues as well.
  • Closure: The incisions are then closed with sutures, and if necessary, nasal splints or packing may be placed to support the new nasal structure.
  • Recovery: After the surgery, you will be monitored during the initial recovery period, and you may experience some swelling and bruising.
  • Follow-up: Dr. Learn will schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your progress and ensure proper healing.
  • Enjoying the Results: Over time, as swelling subsides and the nose heals, you will enjoy the improved appearance and, in many cases, better nasal function.
