Toledo nose reshaping for a balanced, attractive nose.

If you feel your nose is not a good fit for your face, rhinoplasty can enhance the shape, size, and general appearance of your nose. The procedure can be performed on men and women of almost any age; however, it is usually recommended that young people wait until facial growth is complete—about 13 or 14 for girls and 14 or 15 for boys.

You may be a good candidate for rhinoplasty if you have any of the following conditions:

  • Your nose appears too large for your face.
  • There is a bump or depression on the nasal bridge when viewed in profile.
  • The nose seems too wide when viewed from the front.
  • The nasal tip droops or plunges.
  • The tip is thickened or enlarged.
  • The nostrils are excessively flared.
  • Your nose is off-center or crooked.
  • A previous injury has made your nose asymmetrical.
  • You have an airway obstruction that impairs breathing.

Length of Nose Surgery

Our Toledo rhinoplasty procedure takes 1 to 2 hours or more.
