This Virginia Beach woman in her mid-twenties came for a consultation because she was bothered by the tip of her nose dropping down, especially when smiling. She is also concerned with the symmetry of her nostrils. After a thorough discussion and video imaging, we came up with a surgical plan. During her procedure the bridge was lowered an appropriate amount and the tip was tilted upward using a method that prevents it from dropping noticeably when she smiles. She has been extremely happy with this aspect, as well as improvement in symmetry. Notice that with a nose pointing downward, the nostrils are not visible in the front view, but they are subtly visible after her surgery. Tilting the tip up is also referred to as shortening the nose.

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.
