“I will stand again and proudly show Him that one pure possession—which I have never ceased to
cherish or to share with all—and that is—my enormous....panache.”
—Rostand, Cyrano de Bergerac
Creating a beautiful and natural-looking nose that performs and functions well is the goal of nasal surgery. It is a procedure that should be done with grace and elegance. The operation is performed by rearranging the delicate cartilage and bony structures of the nasal pyramid. Reasons for altering the shape of one’s nose are abundant. A nose may be deviated to one side, crooked, bulbous, pointy, turned up or down, too large, or have a large hump, and so on.
