How and Why is Rhinoplasty Performed?

Rhinoplasty, sometimes referred to as a nose job, can help you bring balance to your face and sculpt the nose you have always wanted. Many people feel their nose is too wide, long, curved, etc. Having this straightforward procedure can change all of this, boosting your appearance and self-esteem.

How Does Rhinoplasty Work?

With this surgery, the bone and cartilage can be re-sculpted into a shape closer to what you have been wanting. The exact details of the procedure vary from patient to patient, as each surgery is customized.

Why is Rhinoplasty Performed?

There are many reasons that this procedure can be performed. Although many of them are cosmetic, it can also be done to improve breathing and to correct a deviated septum. A deviated septum is when the nasal septum, which is the cartilage and bone that separates your nostrils, is off-center dramatically. It is normal to have a certain degree of imbalance between the nostrils, however.

When it comes to aesthetics, rhinoplasty can help correct the following issues:

  • Too wide of a bridge
  • Crooked or curved tip
  • Nostrils are uneven
  • Nostrils are too large
  • Crooked bridge

What to Expect with Rhinoplasty

The first step is to sit down at a consultation, where we can discuss your goals and begin working on a plan. Other facial features, such as your forehead, chin, and cheeks, will be taken into consideration. We will discuss your medical history to ensure that rhinoplasty is an appropriate and safe treatment option for you. A physical exam of the nose is done to determine what the options are and how we can help you meet your aesthetic goals.

Rhinoplasty is done under anesthesia, and the exact type will depend on how complex the procedure will be and other factors. It will be important to follow all postoperative directions you are given. After you have fully recovered, you can enjoy the results of your procedure for years to come.
