Many people are bothered by the size and/or shape of their nose. This is why rhinoplasty is one of the most commonly performed types of cosmetic surgery out there. If you have been considering have a “nose job” done, it is important to fully understand what it is and what it can do.
What is Rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty is simply a surgery performed to change the appearance of your nose. This is accomplished through modifying either the bone or the cartilage, and in some cases, both. Sometimes, this procedure is done to help with a breathing issue. It is also commonly done after an injury to the nose. There are many changes that can be made during this procedure, including:
- Reshaping the tip of the nose
- Straightening out the bridge
- Changing the overall size
- Changing the angle of the tip
- Narrowing the nostrils
- Correcting asymmetry of the nostrils
Getting Ready for Rhinoplasty
The first step is to sit down with us at a consultation to discuss your options. We will discuss your medical history to ensure that you are a good candidate for this procedure. If you are wanting this surgery done purely for aesthetic reasons, it is important to wait until you are done growing to have it done.
A physical exam will be done to see what the options for your rhinoplasty procedure are. We will work together to create the best possible treatment plan for you. This is also the time to discuss any other procedures you may want to have done.
What to Expect with Rhinoplasty
It’s important to understand that the exact details of each procedure vary from patient to patient. For example, the procedure may be open or endonasal. During the surgery, our surgeon can skillfully alter the underlying bone and/or cartilage as needed. The end result is a better-looking nose. If the procedure was performed for functional purposes, breathing quality will be enhanced as well.
