Rhinoplasty can dramatically improve your self-esteem by bringing all the features of your face into better proportion and harmony. This type of facial surgery can address virtually any cosmetic and some functional issues you have with your nose. The only way to know if rhinoplasty can accomplish the changes you want to see is to consult our board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Adam Basner. If you have questions about nose surgery, or to schedule your free cosmetic consultation, please call The Plastic Surgery Center of Maryland at (410) 616-3000.
What can Rhinoplasty do?
Rhinoplasty may be right for you if you want to change anything about your nose, including the following:
- Bump or hump in the nose bridge
- Bulbous nose tip
- Drooping nose tip
- Upturned nose tip
- Large nostrils
- Nose asymmetry
- Crooked nose
- Nose size and/or width
- Overall nose shape
- Deviated symptom or trouble breathing through your nose
Being unhappy with the way your nose looks can be persistently frustrating. You may think about how if you could just change your nose a little, then your whole face would be more balanced. With rhinoplasty, Dr. Basner can create that subtle change, thereby making your face overall look more aesthetically pleasing.

Open vs. Closed Rhinoplasty
There are two basic rhinoplasty techniques: the open procedure and the closed procedure. In an open rhinoplasty, incisions will be made inside the nose, but there will also be an incision made outside your nose, on the strip of skin between your nostrils. This incision allows Dr. Basner to have an optimum view of and access to the inner structures of your nose. In the closed technique, incisions are made only inside the nose. Dr. Basner will discuss the advantages of each technique and which one will be the best fit for what you want to achieve.
