Rhinoplasty, or surgery to reshape the nose, is one of the most common of all plastic surgery procedures. Rhinoplasty can reduce or increase the size of your nose, change the shape of the tip or the bridge, narrow the span of the nostrils, or change the angle between your nose and your upper lip. It may also correct a birth defect or injury, or help relieve some breathing problems. Reshaping the nose is a delicate process that requires experience and tremendous skill. Dr. Brandon Kallman, in Miami Beach, possesses such abilities. Dr. Kallman has been featured at many educational symposia and has been asked to speak on Rhinoplasty at many of the U.S. top universities.

The best candidates for rhinoplasty are people who are looking for improvement, not perfection, in the way they look. If you’re physically healthy, psychologically stable, and realistic in your expectations, you may be a good candidate. Rhinoplasty can be performed to meet aesthetic goals or for reconstructive purposes to correct birth defects or breathing problems.

Most people who are in good overall physical and mental health may undergo rhinoplasty, although young patients may need to wait until their noses are finished growing. It’s important to consider teenagers’ social and emotional adjustment, too, and to make sure it’s what they, and not their parents, really want.

When choosing a rhinoplasty surgeon, it is important to select a doctor with skill and experience. Dr. Brandon Kallman can help you create a nose that fits in with your other features and looks natural. He can also help you understand the benefits and limitations of rhinoplasty, so that you can make the decision that is right for you.
