Nose Procedures


Nose procedures are among the most highly performed procedures in the cosmetic industry. Some are designed to enhance the appearance of the nose, while others focus on treating defects and improving nasal function. Patients looking for safe and high-quality nose procedures in Troy choose Andrew Compton MD, ENT and Facial Plastic Surgery.


Rhinoplasty is a surgery used to enhance the appearance of the nose and to address functionality issues. It involves changes to the nose’s cartilage, soft tissue, and bone. Cosmetic issues that can be addressed include a nasal hump, a wide or narrow nasal bridge, wide or narrow nostrils, and a sagging nasal tip.

Revision Rhinoplasty

Not all rhinoplasty surgeries achieve the desired results. Some patients do not like the new appearance of their nose. Others experience nasal breathing problems after their rhinoplasty procedure. For these patients, we recommend revision rhinoplasty surgery. This procedure corrects issues in a variety of ways, including improved structural support.

Deviated Septum Surgery

A patient has a deviated septum when the septum is bent, buckled, or crowding on one side instead of being at the center. This condition can be both a functional and aesthetic problem. We provide deviated septum surgery to straighten and reposition the septum at the center.

Inferior Turbinate Surgery

Inferior turbinate surgery is a procedure that reduces the size of the inferior nasal turbinates to improve nasal airflow. This surgery is performed on both sides of the nose.

Nasal Valve Surgery

Nasal valve surgery is performed to support the side walls of the nose. If done in conjunction with septoplasty, it can use the cartilage removed during septoplasty as support.


VivAer is performed for patients with nasal obstruction. This non-invasive radiofrequency (RF) energy procedure involves reshaping the nostril cartilages and opening the nasal valves.


RhinAer is a non-invasive procedure for chronic rhinitis. It uses low-temperature radiofrequency energy to disrupt the nerve fibers responsible for triggering the runny nose.

Balloon Sinus Surgery

Balloon sinus surgery, or balloon sinuplasty, is a minimally invasive procedure for sinusitis (chronic rhinosinusitis). It uses a small, flexible sinus balloon catheter to unblock sinus passageways.

How Much Does a Nose Procedure Cost?

The price of your nose procedure will depend on the specific procedure that is chosen. The surgical techniques utilized, anesthesia, and procedure duration can all potentially impact the total cost of the procedure.
