Achieve An Aesthetically Pleasing Nose

Whether you feel your nose is too large, too small, not straight or doesn’t match the appearance of the rest of your face, rhinoplasty, or a nose job, can bring symmetry and beauty to your face. It can allow you to achieve a nose that looks great with the rest of your face so you can enjoy a contoured, natural, and more pleasing appearance.

What Is A Nose Job?

Dr. Gonyon may perform a rhinoplasty to create a more balanced, smaller, or more proportionate nose. A nose job can also resolve breathing complications. If you opt for rhinoplasty, you can expect him to use one of two techniques:

  • Closed rhinoplasty surgery: With a closed rhinoplasty, all of the incisions are made inside of the nose. This technique is best at addressing minor cosmetic imperfections.
  • Open rhinoplasty surgery: An open rhinoplasty consists of small incisions made both inside your nose and along the columella, the skin that separates your nostrils. While an incision is made outside of your nose, the incision is small enough that there is minimal scarring involved.


Although every patient has unique features that demand personal attention, and Dr. Gonyon has found that most patients benefit more from an open rhinoplasty procedure. This technique allows Dr. Gonyon to address several issues with your nose and better enables him to provide you with a look that is smooth, symmetrical, and balanced.

Am I A Good Candidate For A Nose Job?

You may be a good candidate for rhinoplasty:

  • If you wish to change the size and/or shape of your nose.
  • If you hope to resolve breathing challenges.
  • If you believe your nose is too big or too small.
  • If you have a bent or crooked bridge.
  • If your nostrils are too wide or too small.

What Results Will I See?* 

Patients treated with a nose job often see: 

  • A more attractive nose.
  • Improved balance and symmetry in the face.
  • A nasal shape that blends in well with other features.
  • A smaller nose that is more proportionate with the rest of the face. 
  • Improved breathing. 


Realistic expectations
are also necessary before you decide to have a nose job. Dr. Gonyon uses advanced computer imaging software to help you get an idea of what benefits your nose job may provide, yet this technology is only a communication tool to help you express your cosmetic goals and understand the effect of nose surgery on your facial appearance. It’s important to understand that it will not be able to give you your actual results.

What Is The Recovery Process Like?*

After a rhinoplasty, you’ll wear a nasal splint to add support to your nose during the initial healing process. You’ll also need to keep your head elevated at all times for a few days. 

While you may feel like they have a stuffy nose, you should be able to breathe through your mouth. You’ll likely notice your nose is swollen or bruised and may find that this extends into the eye area. Rest assured that “black eyes” are completely normal after rhinoplasty surgery and will subside over time.

Dr. Gonyon will encourage you to use a nasal spray to keep the inside of their nose clean and moisturized. In addition, he may prescribe pain medications to alleviate any pain or discomfort. You’ll likely take at least one week off from work so you can rest and relax as much as possible.
