Meet Dr Farnworth
Doctor Farnworth is a plastic surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery with a special interest in rhinoplasty or surgery of the nose. Rhinoplasty can improve the appearance and proportion of your nose, enhancing facial harmony. Surgery of the nose may also correct impaired breathing caused by structural abnormalities in the nose.
Dr. Farnworth has practiced in Phoenix, Arizona since 1993. He is a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons and a member of the American Cleft Palate – Craniofacial Association where he serves on the International Outreach Committee. Dr. Farnworth performs both reconstructive and aesthetic surgery. Plastic surgery is a term that comes from the Greek word plastikos meaning to shape or mold. Plastic surgeons mold or give form to the human body. They are trained to see possibilities and create solutions. Plastic surgeons dedicate themselves to helping patients reclaim their lives, re-establish their self-confidence, and restore their dreams.

Dr. Farnworth believes that a plastic surgeon should be an educator, helping patients understand what a plastic surgeon can offer them. By taking time to answer questions, Dr. Farnworth helps patients understand the options for treatment as well as understand realistic expectations. Dr. Farnworth believes that patients deserve honesty as well as the skill of a trained surgeon. Dr. Farnworth began his training in general surgery from 1986 to 1989. He completed a special fellowship in plastic surgery with emphasis on craniofacial surgery and hand surgery in 1990. He finalized his training by completing a plastic surgery residency from 1991 to 1993. He began private practice in Phoenix, Arizona in 1993.What changes can surgery of the nose accomplish?
- Nose size, in relation to the other facial structures
- Nose width, at the bridge
- Nose profile, with visible humps or depressions on the bridge
- Nasal tip, that is large or bulbous, drooping, or too upturned
- Nostrils that are large, wide or upturned
- Nasal asymmetry and deviation
Nose surgery is not a pursuit of perfection. Rather it is for those who want to make positive changes in the shape of their nose but who can still accept imperfections.
You should have specific, but realistic goals in mind for the improvement of your appearance. Surgery of the nose is usually reserved for those 16 years and older.

Take the photos indoors with good lighting. Use a solid colored background. A camera with a zoom lens fully zoomed in on the face is best. You can also have the photos done by a portrait studio.
