Rhinoplasty Candidates

Men and women who experience functional and/or aesthetic problems with their noses may choose to undergo rhinoplasty, or nose surgery. Good rhinoplasty candidates typically desire noses that complement their facial features and appear natural. It is recommended that patients wait until at least their late teenage years before proceeding with aesthetic surgical treatment of the nose. Rhinoplasty surgery by San Diego and La Jolla-area plastic surgeon Dr. Mark Mofid can address any of the following aesthetic problems with the nose:

  • Too large or too small in comparison with other facial features.
  • Bump on the bridge of the nose.
  • Wide nose.
  • Nasal tip that droops, protrudes, or is bulbous.
  • Flared or pinched nostrils.
  • Crooked nose.
  • Nose damage due to injury.
