The nose is one of the most prominent and defining features of the face, ultimately having an effect on the overall aesthetic balance and an individual’s general appearance. Procedures designed to modify and enhance cosmetic characteristics of the nose, as well as those which focus on improving structural nasal issues which may be causing breathing challenges, should always be performed by an experienced plastic surgeon who has been extensively educated and trained in these complex procedures. Dr. Christopher Godek is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and highly qualified to perform an array of treatments designed to enhance nasal form and function.
Rhinoplasty and nasal procedures are a strong focus of Dr. Godek’s plastic surgery practice, and he offers a comprehensive selection of options to help patients meet their needs. Below you will find a brief overview of the treatments available from Dr. Godek, along with links to pages that provide more detailed descriptions of each option.

Primary rhinoplasty is the medical term used to describe nose surgery performed on a patient who has never before had rhinoplasty. This treatment can be ideal for addressing aesthetic nasal concerns or functional problems such as a deviated septum. Rhinoplasty can significantly enhance nasal appearance for both women and men who would like to improve the shape of the bridge, the tip, the nostrils, or other structural features with outcomes that achieve individual goals with natural-looking results.
Revision rhinoplasty may be a good treatment option for patients who have had previous nasal surgery performed by another plastic surgeon that has resulted in complications or general dissatisfaction. This procedure, sometimes referred to as corrective rhinoplasty or secondary rhinoplasty, can be performed to resolve aesthetic or functional concerns that were not sufficiently improved by the previous rhinoplasty, as well as conditions that may have actually been caused by it. Dr. Godek has performed many of these complex operations and can develop a customized treatment plan designed to address your concerns and meet your expectations.
Ethnic rhinoplasty is a surgical nasal treatment option that is customized for individuals of non-Caucasian descent who would like to ensure that unique natural features and characteristics distinct to their heritage are retained. Dr. Godek is always very sensitive to each patient’s needs and will formulate a treatment plan that takes all of your considerations into account.
A non-surgical cosmetic enhancement procedure that exclusively utilizes injectable dermal fillers to refine nasal contours is often called a “liquid rhinoplasty.” For some individuals, effective (yet temporary) aesthetic rejuvenation can be achieved with precise injections of advanced fillers such as JUVÉDERM® and Restylane®. Liquid rhinoplasty can provide a smoother definition for mild humps along the nasal bridge, improve balance in a nose that appears “crooked,” elevate the nasal tip, and address other concerns with nasal contour and shape.
