While it’s not the most elegant name for a cosmetic procedure, the term “nose job” is a common way to reference rhinoplasty.
Rhinoplasty is performed to reshape the nose and thereby enhance facial symmetry and profile. In some cases, the surgery can also improve nasal function (although another procedure called septoplasty may be more suitable for that purpose).
Benefits of Rhinoplasty
The nose is a major focal point of your face. As such, it has an incredibly powerful effect on your overall facial appearance.
During rhinoplasty, we carefully reshape the underlying bone and cartilage to create a more balanced profile.
Even the most subtle changes to the nasal structure can make a dramatic difference.
Rhinoplasty can achieve different goals for different patients.
It’s never a one-size-fits-all procedure. The doctor begins by listening to your concerns about your nose.
Do you think it’s too wide? Too long? Misshapen? During a consultation, share your cosmetic concerns right away and be open about your expectations for nose surgery.
Common concerns about the nose include:
- Too large or wide for the face
- A dorsal hump (bump on the bridge of the nose)
- Flared nostrils
- Nose asymmetry
- Nasal breathing problems
Both men and women can benefit from the procedure, but the technique will vary between genders. Read more about how rhinoplasty works and what to expect during rhinoplasty at Visage Facial Surgery in the Cleveland area.
