Rhinoplasty | Surgical Arts Centre


Rhinoplasty is one of the best examples of the true art of surgery – even small and subtle changes can significantly improve a patient’s quality of life.

- Dr. Taylor -

Our noses are vital to some of our most notable bodily functions, such as smelling and breathing, but they are also the centerpiece of our faces. A damaged nose – or simply an imperfect nose – can affect our daily lives, from our self-esteem and confidence to our ability to get a good night’s sleep.

The art and science of rhinoplasty

At Missoula’s Surgical Arts Centre, our board-certified cosmetic surgeon only focuses on facial surgeries, including rhinoplasty (nasal surgery) and septoplasty (nasal septum surgery).

For decades, Dr. Taylor has helped patients achieve better-functioning and better-looking noses, through thoughtful consultations, computer imaging, and skillful surgery.

Common reasons that our patients seek nose surgery include:

  • A deviated septum makes it difficult for the patient to breathe.
  • A sports injury or accident has changed the appearance or function of the patient’s nose.
  • A cleft palate or another birth defect has affected the shape or function of the patient’s nose.
  • A patient’s septum has caused moderate to severe sleep apnea.
  • A person would simply like to change the size or shape of their nose.

People often make assumptions about “nose jobs” – from how much they cost to how painful they are to how dramatic the results will be. Telling your own story to our doctor and getting individualized answers to all of your questions about rhinoplasty can help you decide whether nose surgery is right for you.
