Rhinoplasty

Phoenix, Scottsdale, Paradise Valley, and surrounding Arizona areas

Your nose is one of the central features on your face, and it has a significant impact on your appearance. In many instances, subtle alterations to the size or shape of your nose can dramatically change your overall appearance. If you experience self-consciousness due to your nose, you are not alone. This is quite common. Fortunately, it is very easy to make adjustments to your nose that will create better overall facial harmony and help you look your very best.

Premiere Phoenix Area Nose Surgeons

Dr. Ali Mosharrafa and Dr. Tamir Mosharrafa have been performing rhinoplasty (nose surgery) on men and women in the Phoenix area for 20 years. They can help you achieve the renewed self-confidence in social and professional interactions that frequently occurs when you are happy with the appearance of your nose.

You can receive customized rhinoplasty recommendations by speaking with Dr. Ali and Dr. Tamir in person. Please call (602) 883-4483 today to schedule a consultation at our Phoenix plastic surgery office.

What Issues Can Rhinoplasty Nose Surgery Correct?

Dr. Ali and Dr. Tamir can perform rhinoplasty to address a variety of aesthetic concerns with your nose, including:

  • Nose that is too large or wide
  • Nose that is too small
  • Irregularly shaped nose
  • Tip that is too large, wide, or droopy
  • Tip that is too small
  • Crooked or bent nose
  • Nostrils that are too wide or upturned
  • Nostrils that are too narrow or constricted
  • Broken nose

Often, nose surgery is performed to improve the overall balance of your facial features, not simply to improve the appearance of your nose. In some instances, the most effective way to achieve this facial harmony is to make subtle enhancements to your chin as well. When appropriate, Dr. Ali and Dr. Tamir may recommend chin augmentation in conjunction with rhinoplasty to achieve these goals.

While nose surgery is most commonly performed for aesthetic purposes, a functional rhinoplasty can also be performed to improve breathing that is adversely impacted by a deviated septum.

What Is the Right Age for Rhinoplasty?

While there is no particular right age to undergo rhinoplasty, a key candidacy criterion is that your nose is fully developed. While this age is different for everyone, it typically occurs during your teenage years – usually around age 16 for boys and age 14-15 for girls. During your initial consultation, Dr. Ali and Dr. Tamir can tell you if your nose has reached full maturity.

The reason it is important to wait until your nose has reached full maturity is that many of the size and shape concerns you may experience during your teenage years may go away on their own once your nose Read More
