PHOTO GALLERY – Columellar Ptosis Rhinoplasty Near Me


Case #8.

This patient wanted to see the one of the best nose surgeon in San Diego to enhance the appearance of her nose. She did not like how her nose appeared too large for her face and drew attention away from her other beautiful facial features. She was particularly concerned with how her hanging columella made her nose look too heavy from the front view. She also disliked how there was prominent nostril exposure from the side view. She wanted a nose surgery to refine her nasal tip and improve the balance between her nose and the rest of her face.

Using an open rhinoplasty approach, Dr. Kolstad reshaped this patient’s nose to make it appear less prominent and bring it into harmony with the rest of her face. Correcting a droopy columella is challenging and requires a skilled and detail-oriented surgeon. Dr. Kolstad used advanced rhinoplasty techniques to reshape this patient’s prominent columella and create a more refined, feminine tip.
