Augmentation Rhinoplasty 

Dr. Romo is an expert in the “aesthetic reconstruction of the platyrrhine or flattened nose”. His augmentation technique utilizes natural tissue and safe porous implants to produce a nose that matches the face and the race of the individual. This rhinoplasty procedure first conceived and published by Dr. Romo in 1992 has its basis in that the flattened or platyrrhine nose requires substantial augmentation to properly support it. The skin of the nose has no shape; it is instead the underlying cartilage and bony architecture, which delineate the shape of the nose. Therefore these noses require the specific placement of grafts and implant materials to produce a more defined and elevated nose.
