Realize Enhanced Facial Harmony

Better Balance, Beautiful Profile

The nose is a natural focal point of the face, significantly impacting the face’s overall proportions and appearance. When the nose's size, shape, or asymmetry disrupts facial harmony, a rhinoplasty or nose job can single-handedly enhance the face’s appearance as a whole and produce a more attractive profile. In addition to the cosmetic purposes of rhinoplasty surgery, the procedure also offers functional enhancement of the nose, refining irregularities to improve airflow and breathing. Dr. Brandon Richland is an accomplished and board-certified plastic surgeon who strives to deliver the best rhinoplasty Newport Beach has to offer. Dr. Richland’s exceptional dedication to excellence ensures that you will achieve the best results possible, with beautifully harmonic facial proportions and optimal breathing.

Is a Rhinoplasty Right for You?

Exploring your Candidacy

The ideal candidate for rhinoplasty surgery has concerns about the appearance or functionality of their nose, or in some cases, both. To undergo surgery, you should be a generally healthy, non-smoking adult and have a realistic perception of what rhinoplasty can achieve. In addition, you should be dedicated to following all post-procedure instructions closely to allow for optimal healing.

Benefits of Rhinoplasty


Cosmetic Benefits of Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty is a longstanding leader in plastic surgery procedures each year due to its ability to significantly improve the proportions and profile of the face and enhance overall facial harmony. Depending on your unique concerns and the condition of your nose, your personalized rhinoplasty procedure may include:

  • Reducing the bump at the bridge of the nose.
  • Adjusting the size of the nose for a more balanced appearance.
  • Refining the size or shape of the nostrils.
  • Creating a more attractive nasal tip in terms of shape or size.
  • Enhancing nasal symmetry.

Functional Benefits of Rhinoplasty with Septoplasty

More than just a facial feature, the nose plays an important role in the respiratory system. When you change the shape of your nose - whether as a result of surgery or injury - you change how it functions. A septoplasty, or the surgical revision of the septum, offers significant breathing improvement and overall wellness benefits such as:

  • Correct a deviated septum.
  • Eliminate obstructions within the nose.
  • Reduce snoring.
  • Alleviate sinus problems.
  • Improve sleep.

Your Rhinoplasty Procedure

What’s Involved

The details of your procedure will depend heavily on your unique treatment goals and the existing condition of your nose. Dr. Brandon Richland will make adjustments to the size or shape of your nose by sculpting the bone and cartilage according to your aspirations. Your rhinoplasty will be performed under general anesthesia to ensure your complete comfort throughout the procedure, and your incisions will be discreetly placed so that, once healed, they will be virtually undetectable.

The Consultation Process

Dr. Richland employs a thorough consultation process to provide you with a personalized treatment plan tailored to every aspect of your unique goals and needs and, ultimately, your best possible results. During the consultation phase of your treatment, Dr. Richland will listen to your concerns, lifestyle needs, and desired treatment outcome to present you with the most suitable treatment options for you. Together you will devise a detailed plan for your rhinoplasty treatment. With a full understanding of your treatment, you will arrive prepared and confident on the day of your procedure.


At the completion of your rhinoplasty surgery, you may have internal packing and/or an external splint which will stay on for 1-2 weeks. As your nose heals and swelling subsides, your new nasal contours will be revealed. While our Newport Beach rhinoplasty patients results will be mostly visible after a few weeks, the full process can take up to a year as tissues settle. Dr. Richland will provide you with detailed instructions for caring for your nose, including when to come back for your follow-up appointment.
