Each year, hundreds of thousands of people seek to enhance their appearance by altering some aspect of their nose. You may be unhappy with the nose that you were born with or how your nose has changed over time. You may have suffered an injury that refashioned your nose in ways you don’t love. In either situation, a skilled plastic surgeon can perform rhinoplasty to correct abnormalities.
What is a Rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty is the procedure known as a “nose job.” It is a plastic surgery procedure that enhances facial harmony by focusing on the proportions and shape of the nose. Sometimes, rhinoplasty can correct structural defects as well as cosmetic concerns. The primary motivation, however, is to change the nose’s appearance to make it more appealing.
What Are the Benefits of Rhinoplasty?
There are numerous ways in which rhinoplasty surgery can benefit your appearance and your quality of life. While we could list out the specific improvements that can be achieved through rhinoplasty, such as correcting asymmetry or reducing a hump on the bridge of the nose, these are mere details. The benefit of having rhinoplasty is that you can feel fully you by having this procedure. If your nose stands out to you for the wrong reasons before rhinoplasty, it should stand out for all the right reasons after this surgery.
Am I a Candidate for Nose Surgery?
Adults of all ages can be good candidates for rhinoplasty surgery. It is very common to have a nose job to correct various cosmetic and structural concerns. Provided that your nose is fully developed, which can occur during the teen years, you have met one of the criteria for being a good candidate for rhinoplasty.
To be a good candidate for surgery in general, it is important to be in good health. Your doctor will conduct a thorough consultation and medical history, and may order certain tests to confirm that you can safely undergo surgery. You mustn’t smoke before having plastic surgery. If you currently smoke and you want to have a nose job, you need to begin making changes now that will enable you to fully quit well in advance of your procedure.
Having rhinoplasty is a big decision. You want to achieve the “perfect” nose, which can take a bit of work to really understand. During your consultation, your surgeon will discuss what your ideal nose shape and size are and will compare your ideals to the shape and size that is best suited to your overall facial structure. The happiest rhinoplasty patients understand that there is no such thing as a perfect nose, but that there is a shape and size that will look perfect on their face.
Will a Rhinoplasty Ruin My Nose?
When seeking rhinoplasty surgery, it is imperative that you take your time finding the most qualified surgeon. It isn’t enough for a surgeon to perform rhinoplasties. It isn’t enough for your doctor to tell you they will give you exactly the results you’re asking for. For rhinoplasty to work well, it must be tailored to your face. Our experienced surgeons take into account the way in which your nose fits in with your other facial features. They also look at the skin on your nose and the extent of change you’re requesting. Using the data obtained, they customize their treatment recommendation accordingly.
