A rhinoplasty is among the most common cosmetic plastic surgery procedures performed in the United States. Most rhinoplasties, or nose jobs, are performed to reduce the bridge of the nose in men and women who desire a more contoured nasal profile. What makes the best rhinoplasty surgeons in Beverly Hills and Los Angeles stand out is the attention to detail and the pursuit of a natural nose contour. Overly-done nose jobs tend to look unnatural, and thus sub-optimal.

His attention to surgical detail and keen aesthetic eye allow him to sculpt the nose to match facial proportions, particularly based on ethnicity and facial biometrics. Dr. Karamanoukian also performs rhinoplasty, septoplasty, and septorhinoplasty surgery in his outpatient Santa Monica plastic surgery center.

The lower eyelids often require a removal of excess skin, correction of the tear trough hollowing, removal of excess fat bulging, and tightening of the eyelid skin.
