Rhinoplasty is a nose reshaping surgery to improve the appearance of the nose and often to correct breathing problems. Because it is one of the most technically difficult procedures in cosmetic surgery, rhinoplasty requires a strong sense of aesthetics coupled with a profound understanding of anatomy to provide an attractive, natural-looking nose that functions properly. Secondary rhinoplasty, commonly referred to as revision rhinoplasty, requires exceptional analytical and surgical skill. Only surgeons with extensive training and significant rhinoplasty experience can restore breathing function and improve less-than-desirable results from previous nose surgery.

The best candidates for nose reshaping have realistic expectations about what surgery can accomplish. Our rhinoplasty surgeon carefully screens each patient to ensure that they are physically, emotionally, and financially prepared to undergo this major cosmetic procedure. During an in-person consultation, each patient will be thoroughly examined to determine if the patient is a good candidate for nasal surgery and to create an individualized surgical plan to achieve the desired goals. The Gunter Center is the first practice in North Texas to offer Vectra 3D Imaging to simulate the proposed before-and-after results of rhinoplasty surgery.
If you are considering rhinoplasty but live outside the Dallas-Fort Worth area, the Gunter Center for Aesthetics & Cosmetic Surgery offers an optional Internet Consultation that helps our surgeon pre-assess your eligibility for rhinoplasty prior to visiting our office. For more information, please visit our Are You a Candidate? page.

Everything went great. I felt great afterwards and I really didn't have a bad experience. You know, I felt fine. Of course the congestion is always, you know, a pain, but you know it wasn't what I expected. I thought it was going to be painful.
And here now, 15 months later, and I'm really, really, really excited and very happy with the results.
