More and more people are turning to plastic surgery to correct parts of their faces and bodies they are not happy with and boost their self-esteem. By far, one of the most sought-after plastic surgeries is rhinoplasty. Also known as nose reshaping or a nose job, the rhinoplasty procedure aims to improve the appearance and/or function of the nose.
Who is the Right Candidate for Rhinoplasty?
While almost any healthy adult is eligible for this cosmetic procedure, it is important that you consult with our surgeon to determine your specific needs and limitations. Rhinoplasty is generally not recommended for patients whose nasal skeletal structure is yet to fully develop. From a cosmetic standpoint, a nose job is a good option for candidates whose nose:
• Is non-proportional to other facial features (too large or too small)
• Is asymmetrical
• Is too wide
• Has a bump on the bridge
• Has wide or narrow nostrils
• Has a droopy or enlarged tip
• Hinders breathing ability
How Rhinoplasty is Performed
A nose job is an outpatient procedure that typically does not require an overnight stay. Of course, the exact details of the procedure vary from patient to patient based on a number of factors. What is done depends on the nature of the rhinoplasty the patient is going to have. Some procedures require more tissue removal and manipulation than others. Once the nose has been reshaped according to the patient’s wants and needs, the surgery can be concluded.
Could Rhinoplasty Transform Your Look?
Rhinoplasty can help restore a crooked nose and improve a person’s self-esteem, not to mention breathing. However, it is highly recommended that you consult with a qualified plastic surgeon before deciding whether or not a nose job is right for you.
