Surgery For a Better Nose: Is Rhinoplasty Right For You?
Cosmetic surgery seems like the forbidden fruit for many Americans due to their limited health insurance. Yet in many instances, cosmetic procedures are required other than for corrective reasons. You must have looked in the mirror and often thought “If only my nose’s shape matched the rest of my face”…
If only my nose wasn’t shaped unnaturally hawkish-like with a bump… If only my nose wasn’t like Voldemort’s and was captured nicely in pictures… if only.
Good news, people unhappy with their nose can now opt for rhinoplasty without worrying about their budget (as aesthetic surgery isn’t included in insurance).
Rhinoplasty – How Can This Procedure Help
What does this cosmetic procedure help with? Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure that reshapes the nose… This option can change any undesirable aspect of your nose!
Do you think your nose is a bit larger or smaller for a symmetrical face? Is the angle of your nose a little off compared to the position of the upper lip? Do you think the defects in your nose make you look ugly? Rhinoplasty can fix all of that and more!
What to Expect With This Procedure
Qualified and board certified plastic surgeons must be chosen for conducting the procedure, due to the complex nature of the surgery. The nose is a delicate part of your face and care must be taken to ensure a smooth operation.
A Typical Nose Shaping Procedure Includes
The surgeon will make minor incisions to access bones and cartilage supporting the nose. Minimal scarring (even invisible) is ensured by making incisions inside the nose.
Some bone and cartilage may have to be removed altogether depending on the desired result of surgery… In other cases the surgeon may also add tissue collected from another body part or with the help of synthetic filler.
The next step is rearranging and reshaping bone and cartilage of the nose according to desired requirements. Skin and tissue is then re-draped over the nose structure.
There are other reasons why people might wish to have rhinoplasty, some that have nothing to do with aesthetics. This surgical procedure helps with:
- Correcting breathing problems
- Corrects structure of a broken nose
You must be an ideal candidate for any surgical or nonsurgical cosmetic procedure to ensure the best possible results. Are you a good candidate for rhinoplasty? You are if:
- Your facial growth is complete

- You have realistic goals about your appearance’s improvement
