What is Rhinoplasty?

Are you unhappy with the appearance of your nose?

Did you recently get injured and, as a result, your nose now looks different or is visibly misshapen?

If so, you may be a good candidate for a rhinoplasty procedure. This popular surgery is an excellent choice for patients who want to correct their nose’s appearance, whether that means shaving it down, correcting a bulge, or reducing a bulbous tip.

Let’s take a closer look at what a rhinoplasty is, as well as how to tell if you’re a good candidate for this procedure.

All About the Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty, commonly referred to as a nose job, can dramatically improve the appearance of your entire face by making small (or large) alterations to your nose. Some issues that can be addressed by the rhinoplasty procedure include:

  • Straightening a crooked nose
  • Reducing a bulbous tip
  • Correcting an asymmetrical nasal bridge
  • Reducing the length of the nose
  • Reducing the width of the nasal bridge
  • Reducing the width or size of the nostrils
  • Creating balance with the overall facial appearance

Even the smallest adjustments to your nose can make a profound impact on your entire appearance and facial profile. If you feel as though your nose does not fit with the rest of your facial features, rhinoplasty may be the answer.

Rhinoplasty can be performed as a “closed” procedure – meaning your plastic surgeon makes incisions within the nostrils, or as an “open” procedure, where the plastic surgeon makes surgical incisions around the nostrils. In the latter’s case, most plastic surgeons make incisions within the nostril folds to hide surgical scarring.

Am I a Good Candidate for Rhinoplasty?

You’re a good candidate for a rhinoplasty procedure if:

  • You’re unhappy with the appearance of your nose
  • You have realistic expectations for your procedure
  • You’re a healthy nonsmoker or are willing to quit for several weeks before your procedure

The best way to learn if you’re a good candidate for a rhinoplasty procedure is to schedule a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon.
