Having a proportionate and shapely nose is an important factor when it comes to your facial appearance. If you are unhappy with the shape or size or your nose, you do not have to just live with it. A nose job, more technically known as rhinoplasty, can help you sculpt the nose of your dreams. In some cases, it can even help you breathe easier.
The Benefits of a Nose Job
There are many things that can be accomplished with this type of cosmetic procedure. Consider a nose job if any of the following scenarios apply to you:
- You do not like the width of your nose
- You feel your nostrils are too big
- The tip of your nose turns upward, downward, or is crooked
- Your bridge is crooked
- You are unhappy with the angle of your nose
- You have sustained an injury to your nose that altered its appearance
What to Expect with a Nose Job
It is important to come in for a consultation before beginning. This is done so we can learn your medical history and understand your goals for your nose job. We will conduct a physical examination of your nose to get a better idea of what the options are.
If you feel your nose is too small or would like to change the shape of it, additional cartilage can sometimes be used. This cartilage either comes from further up in the nostril or the ears. In severe cases where the shape needs to be changed dramatically, a bone graft may be necessary. After your procedure, you will need to take it easy for a while. The recovery time is relatively short to other cosmetic surgeries. It is important to follow all of the aftercare instructions that you receive.
