One of the most rewarding cosmetic procedures for someone who doesn't like their own facial contours is rhinoplasty, surgery on the nose. For centuries men and women of all ages have agonized over the shape, proportion and functionability of their nose. The most commonly admired noses are trim, straight and most important-in good balance with the other facial features. A small correction on the nose can make a dramatic difference to the overall appearance of the face. Routine procedures that Dr. Worthing performs on patients from 16-80 years old include reshaping, narrowing, shortening the nose or removing a hump from the nose. In most cases, airflow is greatly improved making it easier for the patient to breathe. The key to this procedure is individual care and artistry. Dr. Worthing spends a great deal of time with each patient to clearly understand their personal goals going into surgery so that the results are not just corrective, but also satisfying to each and every patient.
