Keep in mind that each patient is unique and your results may vary.

Rhinoplasty Just for You

When it comes to rhinoplasty one thing is certain—there is no one nose that fits everyone. The goal I pursue for my Los Angeles rhinoplasty patients is to create facial balance, including a nose that blends well with other features. This is especially important in working with patients with ethnic characteristics. It’s critical to proceed with sensitivity, developing a surgical plan to refine the nose without making the patient look like he or she belongs in a different family.

I often perform revision rhinoplasty for ethnic patients as well as primary rhinoplasty surgery.

Dr. Stoker Explains Ethnic Rhinoplasty

For my patients from ethnic backgrounds, nose surgery may involve building the bridge of the nose up higher and sharper or reducing a prominent hump or bump. Other patients may ask to have the tip of the nose tapered for a more refined look. Narrowing the nostril bases is also common in this group. Whatever the individual patient may need, I take great care to avoid the look of an unnatural, obvious “nose job” for my Los Angeles patients.

A nonsurgical approach, called liquid rhinoplasty, is also an option for patients seeking to change a specific aspect of their nose. This technique involves the strategic injection of dermal fillers and creates results that can last a year or more.

Why Choose Dr. Stoker
Professional Resume


The nose is central to a person’s overall appearance—that’s why hundreds of thousands of men, women and young people have chosen rhinoplasty over the past several decades. If you’re unsatisfied with your nose, you’re probably a candidate for rhinoplasty. My Los Angeles nose surgery patients range from the age of about 16 to 75 years of age.

For some people, insurance may cover part of the procedure. If you have breathing problems, this could be a possibility for you. Insurance companies are careful to cover only functionally necessary procedures as part of the operation.


Recovery from nose surgery offers both immediate gratification and improvement over time. My patients see results when the splints and bandages are removed—4 to 6 days post-op. This is when many return to work and other activities. The final outcome reveals itself several months to a year following surgery.


Risks associated with rhinoplasty can include bleeding, infection, asymmetry and a few others. These potential complications are unusual in my experience, and each one is treatable.
