Most of us notice someone's nose only when it is not in balance with their face, whether it's too large, too wide, or misshapen. If you are dissatisfied with the shape or proportion of your nose, you are likely dissatisfied with your overall facial appearance. Los Angeles rhinoplasty (nose surgery) can improve the way you look at yourself, as well as how others see you. Using the sophisticated VECTRA 3-D imaging system, you and your surgeon can make virtual modifications to your nose before surgery in order to find an aesthetic result you love.
Many women and men increase their self-confidence and satisfaction in their facial appearance, or simply breathe more freely, by visiting Marina Plastic Surgery for nose surgery. Patients often travel from all over the world, throughout the US, as well as nearby cities like Beverly Hills for rhinoplasty (nose surgery) from our talented surgeons.
Improvements Just Right for You
Nose surgery is one of the cosmetic procedures that can most greatly improve your overall appearance. It is appropriate for adults, as well as teens, as long as they are about 16 years old and their facial growth is complete. Our patients choose rhinoplasty for their own personal reasons that often include:
- Enhancing the size or shape of the nose
- Repairing damage caused by an injury
- Improving or restoring breathing
- Complementing another facial sculpting procedure, such as eyelid surgery or a Los Angeles face lift
Rhinoplasty is usually performed as an outpatient surgery while you are under local or general anesthesia. The procedure takes about 1 to 2 hours, although more complicated procedures can take longer to complete. Most incisions are concealed inside the nose or along its natural creases, eventually leaving no noticeable evidence of the surgery.
Test drive your new look
Visualize the results that can be achieved from your procedure with computer simulations from the VECTRA 3D imaging system. This advanced technology can help you and your surgeon to determine the best approach for creating the results you want.
Be sure to view before-and-after photos online to see some of our actual patients.
After their recovery, our rhinoplasty patients are usually thrilled with the more balanced and attractive look of their face. It's amazing to see how greatly women and men alike can enhance their appearance and their self-esteem by improving just this one facial feature.

Many men and women choose rhinoplasty to restore or improve their breathing, for example by correcting a deviated septum. In this case the procedure is considered to be functional surgery and is often covered by health insurance. While it's the patient's responsibility to verify his or her own insurance coverage, we are happy to assist in any way possible.
Marina Plastic Surgery has a web site completely dedicated to rhinoplasty in Beverly Hills and Los Angeles that provides detailed information about the procedure, preparation, and recovery, as well as patient testimonials and before-and-after photos.
