A rhinoplasty or nose surgery changes the face in a profound way. The nose, being relatively at the center of the face really changes the way your whole face looks. Some of the most common results nose surgery can achieve are: reduce the bump or bridge of the nose, change the tip of the nose, reduce the size of the nose, create a more defined bridge, narrow the nose or nostrils, reduce the flatness of the nose. Rhinoplasty surgery is an outpatient surgery at our facility in one of our state of the art operating rooms. The surgery typically takes 1-3 hours to complete depending on the specific type of rhinoplasty being done.
A Different Rhinoplasty Surgery for Different Races

With Rhinoplasty Experience Counts.
Dr. Michael is based in Hawaii and is the Chief of plastic surgery for the entire Infinity Life Centers here in Hawaii, Japan and China. He has over 25 years experience in cosmetic rhinoplasty surgery. He trained in New York City at some of the best cosmetic surgery hospitals in the world including New York University Institute of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. Here his experience in ethinic rhinoplasty such as Middle Eastern, Black, Asian was immense. He is one of the few surgeons in Hawaii who uses the closed technique instead of the open technique for most of his rhinoplasties. This is today not learned well by many younger surgeons. The advantage is the closed technique produces mush less swelling so recovery is faster. Of course the open technique is used if needed, but we prefer the closed technique for a quicker recovery.
