Your nose is the most prominent feature on your face, second only to your eyes.
Its size and shape may be the most defining characteristic of your face. If you are unhappy with your nose, you’re not alone. Every year, hundreds of thousands of people throughout the United States elect to improve the appearance and/or function of their noses through nose surgery or rhinoplasty.
Some people want a different size or shape. Others wish to repair damage caused by an injury, and some just want to breathe easier. If you have been wondering how nose surgery might change your looks, improve your self-confidence or your breathing; you should schedule a consultation with a qualified surgeon.
The ideal nose varies from face to face depending on skin type, ethnic background, age, and other variables. During your initial cosmetic consultation, your doctor will discuss your concerns about your nose, your expectations, and explain the probable outcome of your procedure. We will show you several before and after treatment photographs of patients having similar noses, and we will explain the treatment you can expect to receive. Before and after photos may be taken of your nose to document your results.
Before making the decision to have a rhinoplasty, ask your surgeon if there are any additional facial procedures that may enhance the effects of your nose surgery. Many patients elect to have chin or cheek implants to enhance and balance their facial features.
