This Virginia Beach woman in her early thirties has extremely attractive facial features, however she felt that the inside of her nose showed excessively, detracting from her appearance. There is a name for this among rhinoplasty surgeons and we call it caudal septal excess. It is also a type of tension nose. Her lower nose overgrew, making her tip look turned up and lifting much of her upper lip. She had a number of other issues we addressed but for this particular one, the septum was trimmed and the tip cartilages were repositioned to give her a normal appearing upper lip and much more normal appearing lower nose. She also had extremely asymmetric nostrils which were improved at the same time. Her photo is only 4 months after surgery, so the scars are still pink, and the tip is still somewhat swollen. However, it is very clear that the shape of her nose is clearly improved, as we predicted.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

We are excited to announce our reopening as of May 1st. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: Our commitment to your safety.

Consultations are available in our office and we will continue to offer Virtual Consultations as well. You will be asked to complete your registration paperwork in our secure patient portal prior to your appointment and your consultation fee will be collected by phone to minimize contact.

Here are a few changes we have made as we transition to this new era:

  • Please reschedule your appointment if you are not feeling well, have a fever, have been exposed to anyone with Covid-19 or travelled internationally within the last month.
  • We will limit the number of people in the building and waiting area to maintain social distancing and our staff will be wearing masks until restrictions are eased.
  • Please wear a mask during your visit but do not wear gloves. You will be given hand sanitizer.
