Rhinoplasty or nose surgery improves the appearance and proportion of the nose, enhancing facial harmony and boosting self-esteem. Nose surgery can also correct breathing difficulties caused by structural abnormalities in the nose. While the shape of your nose is usually the result of heredity, the appearance may have been altered by injury or previous surgery.
Rhinoplasty can change:
• Nose size in relation to other facial structures,
• Nose width,
• Nose profile,
• Nasal tip, which can be large, drooping, or overly upturned,
• Nostrils that are large, wide, or upturned,
• Nasal asymmetry and deviation.
The decision to undergo surgery is personal, and you should be the one to decide if the benefits will achieve your goals and if the risks and potential complications are acceptable.
Rhinoplasty is a good option for you if: Your facial growth is completed, and you are 13 years of age or older, you are physically healthy, you do not smoke, you have a positive attitude and realistic expectations for the surgical outcome.
