PHOTO GALLERY – Rhinoplasty Surgeon San Diego for Columellar Ptosis


Case #13.

This San Diego nose job patient wanted to reshape her overly prominent columella (tissue between her nostrils). She did not like how her columella appeared to hang down from her nasal tip because it drew unwanted attention to her nose.

Dr. Kolstad used an open rhinoplasty approach to improve the appearance of her nose. Using the tongue-in-groove technique, he repositioned and reshaped the columellar cartilage to correct the hanging columella deformity. A nostril reduction was performed to decrease the width of her nostrils and improve the overall harmony of her lower nose.

Dr. Kolstad is one of the best nose job surgeons in San Diego and Hispanic rhinoplasty is one of his most common procedures. He specializes in achieving beautiful results that are in balance with his patients’ unique ethnic features and backgrounds.
