Nose Surgery (Rhinoplasty)

Straith Clinic specializes in Nose surgery near Dearborn and West Bloomfield. Rhinoplasty is one of the most popular procedures performed at the Straith Clinic. It is also considered by plastic surgeons to be one of the most difficult surgeries. Straith Clinic has many years of experience with this technique making it one of our specialties.

This procedure can simultaneously correct the function and improve the appearance of the nose. A septoplasty is often performed at the same time as the rhinoplasty in order to reconstruct a deviated septum and to improve breathing.

The Procedure

The plastic surgeon may make incisions on the inside or outside of the nose in inconspicuous areas. The internal structure is then changed by altering the cartilage and the bone. These maneuvers help to reshape the nose into a more aesthetically pleasing appearance.  The septum and nasal structures obstructing breathing are corrected to improve breathing as well as to straighten nasal deviations.

….I love my new nose! Although it took me many years to finally decide to have Rhinoplasty surgery, I now look back and wonder why I didn’t do it a long time ago. The surgery gave me a true confidence in my appearance. The surgery did not make me perfect, a fashion model, or change my life, but it gave me exactly what I was looking for. I now have the ability to go out in public or look in the mirror and not worry about “how my profile looks” or “if people are staring at me now” …You have truly made a difference in my life!
