Choosing to change the size or shape of your nose is a very personal decision. However, it can have a dramatic effect on your appearance. A nose that seems too large for your face or has specific features that draw attention can detract from your other features. Rhinoplasty, or nose job surgery, can create a nose that is in balance with your face for a more attractive appearance.
Dr. Evan Ransom and the team at our clinic in Mill Valley are experts in the art of facial plastic surgery, including rhinoplasty. Dr. Ransom has achieved excellent results for our patients that want to reshape or resize their nose. This is whether it seems too large, has a nasal hump, is too wide, or has a tip that is disproportionate. This is an intricate procedure, but Dr. Ransom’s dual board certification and extensive training give him the expertise and experience to create surgical artistry for natural, beautiful noses for our patients.
Every “nose job” should be tailored to the patient which is something Dr. Evan Ransom excels at achieving. Our patients that are interested in rhinoplasty want a nose that still looks natural but is altered for aesthetic appeal. Dr. Ransom uses the latest advances in facial plastic surgery to perform a variety of rhinoplasty procedures, including both open and closed methods.
Open rhinoplasty is used for nose shaping and resizing that may need more precise techniques. During this surgery, an incision is made between the two nostrils to access the nasal tip and other structures in the nose. For closed rhinoplasty, the incision is made within the nostril, hiding it from view. While the closed procedure can be used to make small changes to the bridge like removing a dorsal hump, it is not recommended for revision or more complicated nose reshaping procedures.

You deserve a nose that blends perfectly with your features and gives you confidence in your appearance.
