Nose Job Cambridge, MA

Nose Reshaping, also referred to as a Nose Job or Rhinoplasty, is the third most popular Cosmetic Surgical Procedure, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Many patients from Cambridge, MA tell Dr. Markarian that they have been concerned about their nose for a long time and feel it doesn’t suit their face.

What is a Nose Job in Cambridge, MA?

According to, a rhinoplasty is a “surgical procedure that changes the size or shape of your nose.”

A rhinoplasty procedure is the most detailed in plastic surgery, according to Dr Markarian, as the smallest adjustment to one area of the nose can affect another. Any issue a patient has with their nose can lead to long-term low self-esteem and one of the most positive outcomes following surgery is that their nose no longer overwhelms their face, renewing confidence.

Over 90% of patients who have Rhinoplasty surgery, believe it was worth it and according to RealSelf, is now the third most popular and requested aesthetic procedure.

People who are suffering because of issues with the size, shape, angle or bridge of their nose may wish to book a consultation with an expert nose job surgeon in Cambridge, MA.

Types of Nose Job in Cambridge, MA

Typically, most patients when discussing the type of nose job they are interested in, mention reshaping, the end result and the benefits this can achieve. Rhinoplasty (open or closed), a septoplasty or a septorhinoplasty all fall under the umbrella of nose reshaping.

Tip Lift

Refining a nasal tip (altering the angle of the nose) to achieve the patient’s desired look is one of the procedures performed during rhinoplasty surgery. The angle of a nasal tip which projects slightly upwards is generally thought to be a more feminine aesthetic and less of a projection is seen to be more masculine.

Dorsal Hump Reduction

A prominent bump (dorsal hump) on the bridge of their nose is often one of the issues a patient has with their nose appearance. Dr. Markarian performs this procedure for patients who are looking for a more flattened nasal bridge.

Deviated Septum Correction

A deviated septum may be the cause of breathing issues for some patients and in this case, a septoplasty (deviated septum correction), is performed. Dr. Markarian is an expert in rhinoplasty, septoplasty and septorhinoplasty surgery.
