With Dr. Gruber's
advanced rhinoplasty, you can obtain a
better-proportioned nose that looks natural with a
minimum of discomfort. That means, your nose won't
"look done," but look like one you were born with.
Dr. Gruber has performed
research, published over fifty articles, and
authored many chapters, as well as his own book
entitled Rhinoplasty, State of the Art.
In addition, Dr.
Gruber has established a set of instruments that, he
feels, make the task of rhinoplasty much easier.
Dr. Gruber developed some of these instruments while
others were existing instruments that he modified.

and also complained about the appearance of the
tip of the nose which "drooped" and was too

markedly deviated causing airway obstruction. In
addition, the tip of the nose had an unnatural
shape due to distortion of the tip cartilages.
The overall tip was quite wide in comparison to
the rest of the nose.
Surgery was performed to correct both the
functional and aesthetic parts of the nose.
After surgery the airway was dramatically
improved and the new proportions of the nose fit
the elegant features of her face. This very

sustained nasal trauma during a high school
football game. He complained of breathing
difficulty and was dissatisfied with the "bump"
on the top of his nose. Indeed, the nose did
exhibit a marked airway obstruction and a
significant septal deviation along with
convexity of what is referred to as the dorsum
of the nose.
Surgical correction involved both the functional
parts of the nose (the septum) and the dorsum.
The final result was very satisfactory as can be
seen in the postoperative views. The nose not

better. The appearance of the nose is much more
