A rhinoplasty is a procedure designed to improve the appearance and proportion of your nose. While most commonly used for aesthetic reasons, a rhinoplasty can also repair past injuries and congenital defects. If you’re thinking of undergoing a face lift or similar plastic surgery procedure, then you may want to consider the ways a rhinoplasty can change your look.
How it Works
In order to understand how a rhinoplasty can change your appearance, it is important to familiarize yourself with the procedure. After administering general or IV sedation, your cosmetic surgeon will use an open or closed surgical technique to expose your nasal structures.
- Open Rhinoplasty: Vertical incision is made in columella or tissue separating your nostrils.
- Closed Rhinoplasty: Incisions are hidden within the tissue of your sinus cavity.
Both techniques allow your surgeon to remove excess cartilage and reshape the interior structures of your nose.
What it Can Do for You
- Attain Symmetry An off-centered nose can make a pronounced difference in your appearance. A rhinoplasty works to correct large, bulbous, or drooping nasal tips that throw off your nasal symmetry; in addition, rhinoplasties are ideal for correcting off-center bridges and uneven nostril holes.
- Facial Profile Are large bridge depressions or bumps affecting your self-confidence? By smoothing out uneven bridge contours and cartilage humps, a rhinoplasty can completely change your profile for a whole-new you.
- Aesthetic Balance The size of your nose can interfere with other facial features. For instance, a stubby nose can make your face appear heavier, while a longer nose can make your face more elongated. You can improve the overall aesthetic balance of your face with a rhinoplasty.
