Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty Before & After

What is Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty, commonly referred to as a “nose job”, is a surgical procedure used to enhance the contour of the nose in order to improve facial harmony. Rhinoplasty can be used to improve: proportion of the nose to the face, nasal asymmetry, and nose profile with visible indentations and/or protuberances on the bridge among other things. To perform rhinoplasty, a plastic surgeon will create incisions inside the nose; then the underlying cartilage and bone will be rearranged, reduced, or enlarged to create a more aesthetically pleasing nose structure. A rhinoplasty can also be used to correct an obstructed airway, such as a deviated septum, in order to improve breathing.

When to Consider Cosmetic Rhinoplasty? 

A rhinoplasty can do more than just change your nose shape. It has the ability to restore the confidence in yourself that you may be lacking. You should consider undergoing a cosmetic rhinoplasty if you:

  • Are self concious about your nose size in relation to facial balance
  • Have visible humps or depressions on the bridge of your nose
  • Have nasal asymmetry
  • Lack confidence in yourself because of your nose structure
  • Have an enlarged, drooping, upturned, or hooked nasal tip
  • Have large, wide, or upturned nostrils
  • Have a nose width at the bridge or nostrils

Keep in mind that no one has a perfectly symmetrical face. The end result may not result in a completely symmetrical face, the goal of a rhinoplasty is to create a more natural facial harmony and correct proportion. 

 

When to Consider a Health Related Rhinoplasty?

 A rhinoplasty may be required for more than just for cosmetic reasons. It can improve the intended function of the nose itself. You should consider undergoing a health related rhinoplasty if:

  • You have difficulty breathing out of your nostrils
  • You have a disfigurement that affects the function of the nose due to trauma or birth defects
