Whether your nose shaping goals are small or you desire a more profound change, Dr. Shifrin has the experience and skill to help you achieve your goal of a better looking, naturally balanced nose.

Rhinoplasty

The nose can have a dramatic impact on our overall appearance. It is in a central position of the face, and when it is out of balance, it can create disharmony amongst other features. Nose shaping or rhinoplasty by Dr David Shifrin can have a profound effect on the appearance of the entire face. Rhinoplasty surgery utilizes techniques such as cartilage removal, nasal bone manipulation and/or tip shaping. It is designed to improve the appearance of the nose and, in some cases, to improve breathing. Dr Shifrin uses two techniques, closed and open, to modify nasal architecture.

Common Changes Include:

  • Shortening, narrowing, or straightening
  • Eliminating a prominent hump
  • Refining the tip or nostrils
  • Reducing a Wide or Bulbous Tip

The scarring left from the first surgery increases the complexity of the procedure requiring an surgical expertise. Dr Shifrin is experienced with advanced techniques required to achieve your nose reshaping goals.

Common Changes Include:

  • Shortening, narrowing, or straightening
  • Eliminating an under reduced hump
  • Refining the tip or nostrils and adjusting the angle of the tip
  • Fixing a "saddle nose" deformity
