Rhinoplasty, also known as nasal reshaping, nose job, or nose surgery, is one of the top 5 cosmetic procedures performed in America. Year after year, more people opt to change the most prominent feature of their face to align with their personal image goals.
Dr. Joshua Lampert, board-certified plastic surgeon, sees a high percentage of patients who are considering rhinoplasty to soften an ethnic feature of their nose. Ethnic rhinoplasty requires a greater depth of experience and knowledge due to the differences in internal structure between Asian, Middle Eastern or African American noses.
Balance and proportion are the keystones to any perception of beauty. Nowhere is this more evident than on the face. Miami rhinoplasty surgeon, Dr. Joshua Lampert, sees women of all ages who are unhappy with the size or shape of their nose and who have decided to do something about it.
Rhinoplasty, or a nose job, is among the most challenging procedures that a plastic surgeon will perform. In men, the most common reason for seeking a rhinoplasty is to correct an injury caused by sports, activities, accidents or work-related mishaps.
Disfiguring trauma to the nose can be markedly improved when cutting-edge surgical techniques are augmented by the correct surgeon’s artistic vision.
The frustration and disappointment of a failed rhinoplasty procedure is a burden that can be quite devastating. Not only is the result unsatisfactory, the trust between surgeon and patient has likely been lost. Patients seeking a revision rhinoplasty are often in a very difficult position.

Septoplasty, also known as functional rhinoplasty, corrects breathing problems caused by a deviated septum – the thin wall of cartilage and bone that divides the nostrils and nasal cavities.
