Rhinoplasty, surgery to alter and improve the shape of the nose, is the most impactful surgery that can be done on the face. While a face or brow lift makes a person look like they’ve come back from a restful vacation, rhinoplasty can change a person’s look entirely. This is simply because of the way the nose dominates the middle of the face. But this difference is what people who opt for rhinoplasty want.
What Rhinoplasty Can Do For You
Rhinoplasty is a solution if you have a nose that you feel is just too big or too small for your face, if you think your nose is too wide, or if you have an unwelcome bump on the bridge of your nose. It’s also an option if the tip of your nose is too big, droops or stands out too much, if your nostrils are too large or too small, or if your nose is crooked. Rhinoplasty is also performed on people whose nose has been injured or who have breathing difficulties due to the anatomy of their nose.
Who is a Candidate?
You’re a candidate for this procedure if the growth of your facial bones is pretty much complete and you’re in good overall health. You also need to have very specific and realistic goals when it comes to how you want your nose to be improved. You will first have a consultation with the plastic surgeon who will perform your rhinoplasty. Write down any questions you have for them. The doctor will also ask you questions about why you want to have your surgery and will take your medical history. If they agree that you’re a candidate for the surgery, you’ll need to prepare for it some weeks beforehand.
Rhinoplasty can be an open or closed procedure. With the closed procedure, the surgeon operates inside of your nose, which eliminates any visible scarring. With the open procedure, the surgeon makes an opening in the cartilage between your nostrils and opens your nose up. After your nose has been reshaped, the openings are sealed and your nose is further supported. After you recover, you’ll be able to see the results. The great majority of patients are very pleased with their new nose.
