The nose is at the center of the face, and it can bring a sense of harmony to the other facial features. However, if your nose is too large, too small, crooked, or bulbous, it may disrupt this facial harmony. A rhinoplasty or “nose job” can help to create a nose that is more balanced with your face. If you are considering a rhinoplasty, consider these things before booking your surgery date.
Determine What You Want
While you have probably given some thought to what you would like to change about your nose, now is the time to nail down the details. Grab a pen and paper and sit down in front of the mirror. Then, write down exactly what you would like to change about your nose. A rhinoplasty can change many aspects of the nose, including reshaping the nasal bridge, reducing the width, correcting the overall shape, reshaping the nasal tip, and more.
Do Your Homework
Before deciding on any form of cosmetic surgery, you should be sure to do your homework and research the procedure. The rhinoplasty procedure can be performed using different techniques, which depend on a number of factors including your facial anatomy and your desired aesthetic outcome. These techniques usually include the open and closed rhinoplasty.
The open rhinoplasty technique involves creating an incision on the columella, or the area of skin between the nostrils, through which to gain access to the inner nasal structures. The closed rhinoplasty technique involves the creation of all incision inside of the nose.
Seek Out the Right Surgeon
Choosing the right rhinoplasty surgeon is one of the most important decisions you will make. Be sure to seek out a board certified plastic surgeon in your area that has experience performing rhinoplasties. You may need to attend multiple consultations before you find the right surgeon for you.
