Changing the appearance of your nose is an intricate and delicate procedure, but it can help redefine your facial appearance. Whether you have a crooked or misshapen nose from trauma or were born with a nose that does not blend well with your other features, rhinoplasty, or a “nose job,” can reshape or resize this central feature. Residents of San Raphael or Petaluma now have access to an experienced and highly esteemed facial plastic surgeon at our office in Mill Valley.

Dr. Evan Ransom has undergone extensive education and training to become one of the most respected facial plastic surgeons in California. He is board certified in two specialties: otolaryngology (head and neck surgery) and facial plastic and reconstructive surgery. In addition to his impressive credentials, Dr. Ransom has achieved his success and proven results by using a tailored, personalized approach to all his surgical procedures, including beautiful results for our rhinoplasty patients.

Advanced Techniques in Rhinoplasty

When determining the best shape for a nose, it is important to take the entire facial structure into consideration. You want a nose that is still uniquely yours while removing features that cause it to detract from your overall appearance. Dr. Ransom uses both closed and open surgical techniques in our rhinoplasty procedures, choosing the best method based on the individual patient. Rhinoplasty can address issues that cause aesthetic or functional issues, including:

  • Humps or depressions on the nasal bridge
  • Nasal tips that are bulbous, boxy, droopy or hooked
  • Oversized noses
  • Wide or upturned nostrils
  • Crooked or non-symmetrical noses
  • Sinus issues, breathing problems or snoring
  • Rhinoplasty revisions

If you live in Petaluma or San Raphael and are considering changing the appearance of your nose, contact our office to schedule a consultation with Dr. Evan Ransom. He will explain the options available and listen to your concerns. He will help to determine the best solution to give you the nose that improves your appearance and looks natural with your existing features.
