Dr. Portuese specializes in rhinoplasty - nose surgery.

There are four reasons why nasal surgery is done today. They are cosmetic in nature, broken nose, breathing problem or sinus problem. Typically when you break your nose or have a breathing or sinus related problem, those are usually covered under the patients medical insurance plan. The cosmetic surgery portion is not - that is where the shape of the nose is changed so that it looks better for cosmetic purposes.

There are different techniques on how to perform a rhinoplasty. There is the open approach - where an incision is made across the columella ( the area outside the nose between the nostrils) and the external portion of the skin is peeled up and the tip is resculpted. The Seattle Rhinoplasty Center doesnt offer the open technique. They place all of the incisions inside the nose ( closed technique ) which allows for no visible scarring. The closed technique tends to heal faster and better than the open technique.
