Michigan plastic surgeon Dr. Bradley Bengtson offers nasal surgery, also known as rhinoplasty, for men in Detroit, Grand Rapids, and Birmingham who wish to achieve facial harmony and balance.

When approached with a personalized vision and expert surgical techniques, rhinoplasty offers consistent, satisfying results.

If you are unhappy with the size, proportion, angle, tip, or other specific features of your nose, or if you have experienced changes due to injury, nose surgery can help. Dr. Bengtson can help you achieve a naturally attractive, proportionate, balanced face.

What is rhinoplasty?

Nose surgery or nasal reshaping, technically called rhinoplasty, recontours the nose to improve its appearance, form, and function.

This procedure can improve the proportions and angles of the nasal bridge, nasal tip, and nostril openings, making the nose more symmetrical and proportionate to your face. Rhinoplasty can also improve breathing. Rhinoplasty, for men in Detroit, Grand Rapids, and Birmingham typically involves the following surgical techniques:

  • Internal incisions, called a "closed" rhinoplasty approach, may be performed.
  • An added incision along the columella (the tissue that separates the nostrils) is known as an “open” rhinoplasty. Dr. Bengtson prefers this technique because of its precision.
  • Additional incisions may be required at the outside edge of the nostrils for changes to nostril size or to narrow the width of the base of the nose.
  • The nasal bridge size or width may be reduced, reshaped, or enhanced.
  • Humps or other irregularities may be improved.
  • The angle of the nasal tip may be adjusted.
  • The size, shape, or angle of the nostril may be improved.
  • Internal cartilage and structures may also be addressed, improving breathing and airflow.

How can I envision my appearance after a rhinoplasty?

3D planning is essential for many plastic surgical procedures, especially surgery of the nose. The new Canfield VECTRA® 3D Imaging and Simulation System provides an excellent tool for helping Dr. Bengtson understand exactly what you want to see as an end result. It also functions as an excellent educational tool, provides a platform for discussing your concerns, and gives you a general visual range of the surgical outcome you may expect.
