There may be no more powerful surgery to change one's facial appearance than altering the nose. The nose is a central focus of the face during normal conversation and daily interactions with others. In an age of the 'selfie', the focus on nasal aesthetics has become even more acute, with younger and younger patients now seeking this cosmetic procedure.
As nasal surgery (rhinoplasty) is such a powerful technique, it must be approached with appropriate care and respect. Dr. Albright recommends 'fine-tuning' your unique nasal features as opposed to dramatic distortions. Not only will this bring your nose into a more harmonious relationship with your other facial features, but it will also help decrease the risk of short and long term complications from nasal surgery, such as poor scarring or loss of nasal support. These principles are born from Dr. Albright's experiences with cosmetic rhinoplasty in Brazil and reconstructive rhinoplasty (cleft care) in Pennsylvania.
