Do you like the shape of your nose? If the answer is no, you are in good company. Every single year, thousands of people choose rhinoplasty because they do not like the look of their nose or the effect it has on their profile.
Rhinoplasty is a surgery designed to improve the balance and harmony of your face. This procedure can adjust the proportions of your nose so that they sit right with the rest of your face. A large portion of people have this surgery performed to correct cosmetic defects. However, there are those who undergo the procedure because of structural defects that are impacting their ability to breathe. Interestingly, a structural rhinoplasty procedure also often results in an improvement in the aesthetic appearance of their nose because an attractive nose is usually one that works well.
Rhinoplasty can treat a lot of different issues with your nose. For example, it can make your nose larger or smaller to make it harmonize better with the rest of the face. It can change the width of the bridge of your nose, making it thinner or wider, and it can adjust the position of your nostrils. If you have visible bumps or depressions on the bridge of your nose, these can also be adjusted.
Some choose this surgery because they have a bulbous, drooping or upturned nose. Others have nostrils that are just too wide or narrow, which can have a dramatic impact on the appearance of their face. One of the more popular reasons patients undergo rhinoplasty is to correct nasal asymmetry.
When you choose rhinoplasty, our plastic surgeon will tailor the procedure to fit in with the shape of your face to make your results look natural. There is no such thing as a perfectly symmetrical face. Everyone has a face that has a little bit of asymmetry, which can sometimes actually make them more attractive. The goal of our plastic surgeon is to use rhinoplasty to find the correct balance and proportion for your face.
Something else to remember is that just because a particular style of the nose looks great on your friend does not mean it will work the same way on you. Remember, an attractive nose is based in part on the rest of your facial features. That’s why Dr. Farris will personalize your surgery to give you the best results for your needs.
Rhinoplasty can be used to address a deviated septum. This form of rhinoplasty will begin with an evaluation of your nasal structure with the goal of identifying the defects and finding the best way to improve airflow and breathing. Once this is done, Dr. Farris will use surgical techniques to adjust your nasal structure, thereby producing better alignment. Dr. Farris can perform rhinoplasty in a number of different ways, so you will get to learn which method will work best for your needs during your consultation.
