Enhance the Proportions of Your Nose
Rhinoplasty is a popular cosmetic treatment that reshapes or resizes the nose. Commonly known as a nose job or nose surgery, it can be performed to improve the aesthetics of the nose for improved facial harmony or to correct breathing problems.
The surgeons at Kitsap Oral, Maxillofacial & Dental Implant Surgery offer rhinoplasty in Silverdale, Poulsbo, and Port Orchard, WA. This procedure can help you gain confidence in your facial appearance and repair structural defects in the nose for easier breathing.

Is Rhinoplasty Right for Me?
Having nose surgery can dramatically improve the symmetry of your facial features. If you are unsatisfied with the size, shape, or angle of your nose, our surgical experts can help. Patients seek nose surgery following a traumatic injury that has caused the nose to appear different, or to simply reshape their natural nose. Rhinoplasty may be a great cosmetic procedure for you if you are looking to correct any of these conditions:
- Nose size in relation to other facial features
- Wide nose bridge
- Large or disproportionate nostrils
- The tip of the nose is bulbous, enlarged, droops, or hooks upward
- One side of the nose is a different side than the other
- Difficulty breathing due to improperly sized nasal passages
- Deviated septum
A good candidate for rhinoplasty is someone whose facial features have finished developing, is in good overall health, who doesn’t smoke, and who has realistic expectations and goals in mind for cosmetic surgery. Rhinoplasty can be performed on all age groups, including teens and elderly patients, as long as these conditions are met.
The Rhinoplasty Procedure
During the consultation, you will meet with one of our surgeons. We will talk about your goals for treatment and determine if rhinoplasty is right for you. This surgery is typically performed under IV sedation, although we offer a variety of anesthesia and sedation options for your comfort.
We utilize the technique of cartilage augmentation. This involves adding cartilage rather than taking it out of your nose and yields more natural-looking results. The specifics of your procedure will depend on your needs and the desired results.
When reducing the size or shape of the nose, bone and cartilage will be reshaped as needed, and the skin will be placed back over the nose. Incisions are made inside the nose whenever possible so that no visible scarring is left after the procedure. Nostril surgery or open nose surgery will require incisions in the tissue between the nostrils or between the nose and lip. In these instances, we make a conscious effort to leave little to no scarring.
Rhinoplasty can be combined with other cosmetic procedures, such as injectable treatments or a facelift, for more dramatic results.
