Correcting the Size and Shape of your Nose

Have you ever felt that the shape of your nose was off or crooked? Have you ever wished your nose was smaller? When it comes to feelings like this, you’re not alone.

The most common facial feature that people wish they could change is their nose. All over the world, people are dissatisfied with the appearance, size, shape, and dimensions of their nose. This is what makes rhinoplasty one of the most popular plastic surgeries globally.

If you are unhappy with the way your nose looks, you should consider undergoing rhinoplasty. This cosmetic procedure will help you achieve a whole new look by reshaping or resizing your nose.

Understanding Rhinoplasty

Every year, hundreds of thousands of people in the US undergo rhinoplasty to improve their appearance. This procedure remains one of the most-performed plastic surgery procedures in the country. What makes it so popular?

Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure where a surgeon sculpts or alters the tissues of the nose, resulting in an improved shape, size, and overall appearance. This time-tested surgery is safe and very effective in helping patients achieve their desired look.

Rhinoplasty is a great option if you are not keen on making dramatic changes to your look. This procedure can change and improve one’s facial features, even making them look younger.

Besides cosmetic purposes, rhinoplasty is also used to repair structural defects such as a collapsed nostril or deviated septum, which can cause serious breathing problems.

Why Should I Undergo Rhinoplasty?

When it comes to physical appearances, everybody has insecurities. There is always something we want to change about ourselves. For many people, it is the way their noses look. Everybody’s nose is unique, but they are not necessarily perfect. Despite what our genetics have blessed us with, we yearn for noses with better proportions.

If you are looking to change the shape or size of your nose, then you should consider rhinoplasty. This procedure not only changes the appearance of your nose but can enhance your overall look as well.

What Happens During Rhinoplasty?

There are different techniques that may used during rhinoplasty. Your surgeon will choose the best options to achieve your desired results. During the procedure, the surgeon will first make small incisions either inside the nostrils or on the columella (the outer section of skin between the nostrils).

This gives the surgeon access to the cartilage and bone underneath, which are shaved to give the nose new shape or size. If more advanced changes are necessary, reductions or grafts are made by removing or adding tissue.

Once necessary changes are made, the incisions are closed. The difference is immediately noticeable, but it is best observed after the swelling has gone down. In some cases, a nasal splint is fitted in place to ensure that the nose takes the desired shape.

You will be given post-operative care instructions during your consultation. Following these directions as closely as possible is key for healing quickly and without complications.
