The Total Nose Approach™ is not just a procedure; it’s a comprehensive philosophy that addresses the internal and external aspects of the nose. This approach recognizes that the nose is more than just a visible facial feature. It extends deep into the head, and its intricate internal structures play a crucial role in our overall well-being.

Understanding the Total Nose Approach™

The Total Nose Approach™ is not just about aesthetics; it acknowledges that the nose is a complex organ with various functions, including breathing, air filtration, humidification, and more. This approach takes a holistic view of the nose, recognizing that its internal structures are just as important as its external appearance.

Are You a Candidate for Rhinoplasty?

If you’re experiencing symptoms such as difficulty breathing through your nose, facial pain or pressure, sinus congestion, headaches, decreased sense of smell, or even snoring, you could be a candidate for a Total Nose Approach™ rhinoplasty procedure. But here’s the exciting part: if you’re also unhappy with the appearance of your nose—whether it’s due to crookedness, bumps, or size—then this procedure may be the perfect solution.

Exploring the Complexity of the Nose

To truly appreciate the Total Nose Approach™, it’s important to understand the complexity of the nose. It’s not just a surface feature; it’s a multifaceted organ with various functions. The inside of the nose is home to intricate structures and spaces responsible for nasal breathing (nasal septum, nasal valves, and sinuses), air filtration and humidification (turbinates), and air transportation to the lower airway (lungs). Moreover, the internal nose serves protective functions, which, when disrupted, can lead to issues like sinus infections, headaches, congestion, excessive drainage, and more.

Choose Your Nose Expert Wisely

When considering a Total Nose Approach™ procedure, it’s crucial to choose the right surgeon. Your nose is not something you should trust to just anyone. You need a surgeon who understands the aesthetics and comprehends the intricacies of how the nose functions.

Take your time to do your research. Find a surgeon who is well-versed in both the art and science of rhinoplasty and sinus surgery. Their expertise will ensure that any changes made to enhance your nose’s appearance will not compromise its functionality.
