Many people know that the nose is a central feature of the face and that it can influence the balance of their facial harmony. When someone looks in the mirror and is unhappy with the appearance of their nose, they may feel as if it makes their entire face look unflattering. Unfortunately, the nose isn’t the easiest facial feature to conceal, and it cannot be magically corrected. Rhinoplasty, or nose surgery, is an ideal procedure for improving the shape and size of the nose. If you have a misshapen or disproportionate nose, it’s time to achieve your best nose possible with rhinoplasty!
Achieved With Rhinoplasty
Improved Nasal Appearance
The goal of rhinoplasty is to enhance the nasal appearance by improving the nasal structures. Incisions can be made inside the nose (closed rhinoplasty), or an incision across the columella can be used (open rhinoplasty). Through the incision(s), the nose can be straightened and sculpted into the desired shape. Patients will notice their nose looks improved with a more attractive shape.
Balanced Facial Harmony
Whether someone is born with a poorly defined nose or has a crooked nose caused by trauma, rhinoplasty can help them achieve a balanced face. The nose is a focal point of the face, and once nasal deformities are corrected and the nose blends with the face instead of standing out, a person can expect overall better facial harmony.
Better Nasal Function
Some people do not want nose surgery for purely cosmetic reasons. A lot of men and women suffer from a deviated septum, which is a crooked septum that blocks the nasal passages. Septoplasty can be performed to straighten the contours of the nose to improve airflow, helping to improve nasal functioning. Some patients decide to undergo rhinoplasty for cosmetic enhancements along with septoplasty to correct their deviated septum.
It is important that patients are in good health, have realistic expectations, and are knowledgeable of the procedure. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons can provide you with all the information you need to know about rhinoplasty, including questions to ask your rhinoplasty surgeon during your consultation.
Rhinoplasty can involve simple changes that make a huge difference in the facial appearance. Patients are often happy with their results and feel a boost in confidence following their rhinoplasty procedure.
