Cosmetic nasal surgery (or rhinoplasty) is more popular than ever. People are seeking cosmetic nasal surgery for a wide range of reasons. It can help people who feel that their nose is too small, too large, too long, too short, too wide, too narrow, too prominent, too flat or crooked.
The potential for cosmetic nasal surgery seems boundless. Every nose is different; the surgical plan for refining the nose is highly specialized according to the patient’s anatomy, desires and other facial features. Nasal surgery involves a combination of refining, rearranging, augmenting or reducing the underlying bones and cartilage of the nose to achieve the desired refinement.

Restylane® is a safe and natural cosmetic dermal filler that restores volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as smile lines. Restylane® is also an excellent treatment for enhancing the lips by adding volume and fullness.
Restylane® is the first and only soft tissue filler made of non-animal based hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that already exists in the human body and is used to provide volume and fullness to the skin. The hyaluronic acid in Restylane® is a crystal-clear gel which is not derived from animals. This quality eliminates the need for a skin test prior to treatment.
Botox Cosmetic® was the most popular procedure in 2003 with more than 500,000 people opting for the wrinkle reducer in the U.S. alone. Botox Cosmetic® is a natural, purified protein, which in very low doses relaxes the overactive muscles that cause frown lines to form. The procedure is simple, minimally invasive and requires less than 10 minutes.
Although approved by the FDA for cosmetic use in 2002, Botox Cosmetic® has been around for more than 10 years. Botox has also shown to be very valuable in relieving migraine headache symptoms, combating hyperhydrosis (extreme sweating) and for the treatment of blepharospasm (uncontrollable blinking).
