Rhinoplasty and Surgical Recommendations
There are a number of surgical and nonsurgical procedures that can be performed to help you achieve your desired appearance. There are a number of fillers and injectables that can help the appearance of an asymmetric mouth. There are also surgical interventions such as a lip lift that can help lip asymmetries that may be due to lip position, but it is imiportant to be evaluated by a surgeon to see if you are an appropriate candidate.
Drooping eyelids can benefit from Botox injections or surgical procedures such as blepharoplasty or brow lifts. It is important to be evaluated by a surgeon to distinguish what is contributing to your heavy eyelid to undergo the most appropriate procedure.
Flattening of cheeks can also be augmented with injectables such as Voluma or Sculptra or, for a more permanent correction, cheek implants.
Often the nose is evaluated in relation to other features. It is common to augment the chin with a chin implant when performing a rhinoplasty to help balance the overall appeareance of the face and to help build a stronger jawline.
As for the cost of a rhinoplasty, since it is a cosmetic procedure, fees vary between surgeons.
Rhinoplasty and septoplasty candidate
A rhinoplasty procedure can accomplish narrowing and straightening the bridge line along with refining the nasal tip. A septoplasty is performed in the back of the nose to improve airflow dynamics, and is only performed for medical necessity, and is usually billed out to the patient's medical insurance once medical necessity has been documented. Plan to pay for the cosmetic rhinoplasty. For more information and many examples including our current price list, please see the link and the video below
Rhinoplasty, some advices:
Thank you very much for sharing your concerns with us.
The harmony between facial parts makes us instinctively recognize the beauty... without knowing it, without defining it, just a perception that surprises and captivates us.
In this regard, I suggest perform a Closed Rhinoplasty (without visible scars) to treat the tip, base and nasal bridge.
With this procedure you get a delicate nose, better harmonize with your other facial features.

Fees will vary from one surgeon to the next. You would have to be evaluated in person to determine what would be best for you. Good luck.
Rhinoplasty and septoplasty
Hello and thank you for your question. Based on your
photograph, you may benefit from a tip refining rhinoplasty. Your surgeon can
accomplish this by trimming, suturing, and reshaping the cartilage in your
lower nose. Cartilage grafts may also be used to help improve tip refinement.
You may also benefit from a septoplasty with spreader grafts to help straighten your nose and improve breathing. Cost varies by geographic region and surgeon expertise. Insurance may be able to cover the sptoplasty portion, depending on your insurance provider. Make sure you specifically look at before and after
pictures of real patients who have had this surgery performed by your surgeon
and not just a computer animation system. The most important
aspect is to find a surgeon you are comfortable with. I recommend that you seek
consultation with a qualified board-certified plastic surgeon who can evaluate
you in person.
Best wishes and good luck.
