The Rhinoplasty Procedure PSCStaff November 23, 2013 Rhinoplasty The rhinoplasty is one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures not only in Orange County but across the United States. This is mainly due to the fact that the nose is a focal feature on any person’s face, and can greatly affect the way a person is perceived. Dr. Mohsen Tavoussi is a board certified facial plastic surgeon who provides expert rhinoplasty results for all of his Newport Beach patients. Whether a patient is looking to reduce the size of their nose or eliminate the bump on the bridge of their nose, Dr. Tavoussi can provide them with the nose job results that they desire.
