Please visit Dr. Haworth's gallery of rhinoplasty procedures, including revision rhinoplasty before and after photos, to get a proper feel for the variety and uniqueness Dr. Haworth brings to each rhinoplasty procedure.

We also recommend noting the other facial procedures traditionally performed alongside of rhinoplasty surgeries.
Rhinoplasty (commonly known as a 'nose job') is among the most widespread types of plastic surgery practiced today. Yet few rhinoplasty specialists are as adept at the procedure as Dr. Haworth. It is also one of the most complicated to perform due to the complex anatomy of the region and the nose's prominent placement on the face.
Your countenance is greatly influenced by your nasal appearance. The slightest alteration to your nose, which is the most prominent facial feature besides your chin, can greatly improve your overall look.
"A beautiful nose is timeless, the ultimate fashion statement if you will which will never go out of style. It is no wonder that rhinoplasty is one of the most sought-after plastic surgical procedures today." - Dr. Haworth
Occasionally plastic surgery does not achieve the exact results you had hoped for. Over the course of his career, Dr. Haworth has corrected a wide variety of rhinoplasty procedures unsatisfactorily performed by other plastic surgeons. All revision rhinoplasty procedures performed by Dr. Haworth aim to restore balance to the nose as well as the patient's happiness.
When evaluating any potential revision rhinoplasty patient, Dr. Haworth will review certain salient details of your previous procedure to determine what may have been done and what went wrong so that he can correct the underlying mistakes. Often times, the cornerstone of this revision rhinoplasty procedure usually requires strengthening weakened underlying cartilage and consequently the support it provides.
You must remember, however, that surgery isn't a means of achieving perfection. However, if you are unhappy with the appearance of your nose after having undergone previous rhinoplasty surgery, Dr. Randal Haworth offers revision (or secondary) rhinoplasty. Dr. Haworth has extensive experience with revision patients who can expect notable improvement given realistic expectations as to the end result.
Dr. Haworth makes a point of serving each individual patient's needs and defining overall expectations from any plastic surgery procedure. As Dr. Haworth states in his blog, "'Plastic surgery will not make you happy, but it can make you happier.' In simple terms, this allows me to assess whether a patient is fundamentally happy and balanced prior to operating on them."The best candidates for rhinoplasty or revision rhinoplasty procedures are:
A true rhinoplasty expert worth his or her salt knows that individuality is as a part of a successful result as is technical precision. Consequently, a male's nose will be different from a female's, an ethnic patient may want thinning but still retain believable integrity to the face, or a pug nosed or ski-slope button nose patient may actually look better with their nose slightly larger or with a stronger Roman profile. And no matter what, because we live in a three-dimensional world, the nose has to look naturally 'right' from every angle.
Greater Appreciation of Potential Problems
As a rhinoplasty specialist, Dr. Haworth is well aware of situations (such as nasal obstruction) which may arise after certain surgical methods. Consequently, as an experienced rhinoplasty surgeon takes into account such possibilities and knows how to avoid them with specific surgical moves.
The Open Technique
Years ago, as a rhinoplasty specialist in Beverly Hills and Los Angeles, Dr. Haworth used to perform 80% of his rhinoplasties closed – as do most rhinoplasty surgeons – to avoid the imperceptible scar across the columella (the narrow strip of tissue that separates the nostrils) as well as prolonged swelling. However, he found that these supposed advantages of the closed method did not turn out to be true. The closed method tended to result in less accurate suture placement, shifted cartilage grafts and less consistent results.
As a top rhinoplasty specialist, Dr. Haworth has the skills to perform the open method virtually scar-free (and should there be a light scar, offers the skin revision protocols including topicals and resurfacing light technologies to subsequently help it disappear.) Therefore, he has shifted his perfected rhinoplasty approach to the open method for over 85% of his nose surgeries based on practicality, reliability, safety and ultimately, patient satisfaction.
Revision rhinoplasties test the true mettle of the rhinoplasty specialist because they do not have the advantage of operating on "virgin" cartilage, skin and bone and must deal with the myriad challenges posed by damaged tissue and encasing scar. By necessity, the majority of revision rhinoplasties must be performed open because of the increased access to the delicately small nasal structures it affords. As an expert rhinoplasty surgeon, Dr. Haworth performs the open method virtually scar-free and has the in-office technologies to erase any traces of scarring.
Uncomfortable "packing the nose" after surgery used to be standard post-operating procedure. This isn't necessarily true anymore. Dr. Haworth's patients' postoperative experiences are better than ever compared to the patients of other rhinoplasty specialists in terms of comfort and healing.
