How to Find the Top Nose Job Surgeon in Houston

Rhinoplasty, aka nose job, is one of the most difficult procedures in plastic surgery. The surgeon is not only manipulating soft tissue and skin, but having to deal with cartilage, bone, and the functional components of the nose. It is important that when performing cosmetic nose surgery that function is at the very least preserved if not improved.

A good rhinoplasty is said to not be seen in the nose, but in the eyes. Rhinoplasty should be natural and not look operated or “done”. Nose surgery should lead to a nose that does not distract attention from features such as the eyes, hair, cheeks, and lips.

When looking for a rhinoplasty surgeon it is important to understand how many rhinoplasties or nose jobs that surgeon has performed and view that surgeon’s rhinoplasty before and after photographs.

What type of Facelift is best for me?

Many of my facelift patients are confused about the different terms used for facelift techniques. Every patient is different and their face matures differently throughout their life. While a patient in their late 40’s may only require a mini-facelift or neck lift, a patient in their 50’s or early 60’s may require a deep plane facelift. I like to evaluate each patient and assess not only what is bothering you most, but what features can be enhanced best and will attain the most aesthetically pleasing and long-lasting result with minimal downtime.
