Rhinoplasty is the official name of the operation that improves the appearance and/or function of the nose. It involves removing any “excess” bone or cartilage while refining the appearance of the rest of the nose to bring it in harmony with the other features of the face. Like faces, every nose is different; some noses are too long, some too wide, some have large humps, some project away from the face, and some are too small. As a specialist in Facial Plastic Surgery, Dr. Waldman is uniquely qualified to perform rhinoplasty, having initially trained with Dr. Jack Anderson in New Orleans (who many consider the father of modern day rhinoplasty). Dr. Waldman has now operated on over 1,500 rhinoplasty patients, since the opening of his practice in Lexington, Kentucky in 1983. Many patients travel hundreds of miles to see Dr. Waldman, and his expertise with rhinoplasties and revisions is well recognized by his facial plastic surgery peers.
