How Much Does a Nose Job Change Your Face?
Located directly in the center of your face, your nose is a main focal point and plays a crucial role in your overall facial balance. Even a slightly disproportionate or asymmetrical nose can have large effects on the harmony of your facial features. With the aid of rhinoplasty surgery, you can successfully alter the shape, size and symmetry of your nose to your preferred specifications. Despite focusing on such a small area, a nose job can have huge and lasting effects that need to be taken into account before scheduling your surgery.
Dr. Steven Daines, a double board-certified plastic surgeon, understands the intricacies of rhinoplasty and knows how to craft the perfect procedure for his patients’ needs. Every nose job requires a tailored approach and an experienced surgeon with the right tools for the job. Dr. Daines is certified in both facial plastic and reconstructive surgery and head and neck surgery, making him abundantly qualified to perform your rhinoplasty. Before your procedure, make sure you understand all of the moving parts of rhinoplasty and exactly what sort of results you can expect from your procedure.
What Can a Nose Job Improve?
A nose job can address a long list of commonly cited concerns and insecurities. During rhinoplasty surgery the bones and cartilage of the nose can be trimmed, repositioned and reshaped to improve your nose’s appearance. Precisely what your procedure will address will depend on your vision for your nose. There is no one size fits all approach for rhinoplasty. Your procedure will be completely unique and tailored to your desired results.
Some common aesthetic concerns that a nose job can address include:
- A droopy, bulbous nasal tip
- Flared or wide nostrils
- A nasal bump
- Asymmetry caused by injury or genetics
- A narrow or wide bridge width
Rhinoplasty is only intended to target cosmetic issues related to the nose, although additional steps can be added to your procedure to improve your breathing and fix a deviated septum if necessary. Dr. Daines will custom design your nose job procedure after evaluating your anatomy in-person and having a thorough discussion with you about your goals.
Choosing the Nose that Is Right for Your Face
Sometimes patients have a specific, detailed vision for the results they want from their nose job that ultimately may not suit their face. While you may love the shape or size of someone else’s nose and want something similar for yourself, it may not work well with your natural facial anatomy. Small changes to your nose will create a ripple effect that alters your facial harmony. Removing too much of the existing shape or size of your nose to match your description of the “perfect” nose may end up causing more harm than good. In order to ensure you absolutely love your results and maintain a natural appearance, your nose must stay proportionate and balanced with the rest of your face.
For this reason, rhinoplasty is often considered the most difficult and complex procedure in facial plastic surgery. Even the smallest of changes to your nasal structure need to be well thought out ahead of time and then carefully and precisely sculpted during surgery. Dr. Daines understands the delicate balance and proportions of the human face. He will draw upon his immense experience performing rhinoplasty to create a personalized procedure for your needs.
Selecting the Best Facial Plastic Surgeon
While many surgeons may be qualified to conduct rhinoplasty safely, you should always choose a plastic surgeon who is board-certified in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery. Only experienced and board certified facial plastic surgeons with experience performing rhinoplasty can help you define your desired results and bring your unique vision to life. When it comes to making lifelong changes to your face, you deserve the absolute best.
