A Nosey Situation
Rhinoplasty is a cosmetic nose surgery performed on both men and women to reshape and enhance the nose, while it is also used to solve medical concerns such as breathing disabilities or nose disfigurements.
Rhinoplasty operation corrects functional nose problems, it also reverses the effects of a deviated septum, which usually causes breathing difficulties.
Aesthetically speaking, there are several factors why one would opt for rhinoplasty:
- Nose to face size balance
- Nose width at the bridge
- Nose with visible humps on the bridge
- Nasal tip that is enlarged or hooked
- Nostrils that are large, wide or upturned
- Nasal asymmetry
A Compatible Surgical Method for Every Case
Surgeons employ different surgical methods while operating a rhinoplasty depending on the pre-operative goals that were set during previous consultations.
Every patient’s unique case imposes on the surgeon to rely on a customized method; for instance, surgeons will remove masses of excess tissue and cartilage to assist easier breathing, but would build up cartilage for reshaping.
The plastic surgeon decides which type of surgery best suits your case during the consultation, while taking into consideration other factors like facial features and the type of skin.
It’s very important to communicate your desired aesthetic outcome with your surgeon so that he/she could help you set your goals and ground your expectations.
In a nutshell, every nose is treated differently and provided a customized plan to ensure desirable results.
