Expert otolaryngologist Michael S. Schwartz is a board-certified facial surgeon and diplomate of the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery. He specializes in facial procedures such as rhinoplasty. Dr. Schwartz serves patients in Los Angeles, Pasadena, and the neighboring communities.
It is not uncommon to be unhappy with the shape or size of your nose. Rhinoplasty is among one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures in the world. Dr. Schwartz has performed countless nose jobs on patients who were self-conscious or unsatisfied with their original nasal structure. A rhinoplasty can correct noses that are crooked, misshaped, or disproportionate. Dr. Schwartz works with the contour of your face to recreate the bridge, nostrils, or tip of the nose to help each patient achieve their desired results.
