Richard Rival, MD, FRCS
Board-certified in Facial Plastic Surgery and Otolaryngology, Dr. Rival devotes his practice exclusively to enhancement of the face and neck, with a focused specialty in rhinoplasty.Meet the Doctor
Rhinoplasty is a procedure designed to change the external shape of the nose. Patients can see a dramatic improvement in their appearance following rhinoplasty, also called nose surgery or a nose job. Toronto residents are not alone in wanting nose surgery: recent statistics show that over 300,000 people receive a nose job in the United States each year. Rhinoplasty is said to be the most challenging of all the procedures performed in plastic surgery, for such reasons as:
- The nose is right in the center of the face and any imperfection is visible to everyone.
- There is a wide variation in nasal anatomy and skin type.
- No two noses are exactly alike.
- While changing the nasal shape a surgeon must maintain the function of the nose, i.e., breathing.
As a rhinoplasty specialist, Dr. Rival must master nasal and facial analysis and literally learn hundreds of techniques in order to deal with all the possible variations in anatomy. It is important that your surgeon be skilled and experienced in rhinoplasty in order to obtain consistent optimal results. Dr. Rival also has extensive experience in nose job revision surgery to correct previous rhinoplasty procedures.
