Rhinoplasty, also called plastic surgery of the nose or a “nose job”, is a very popular procedure that can make profound differences not only in the balance of facial features, but also in a person’s self-esteem.
The aesthetic improvements that a Rhinoplasty surgeon can make include decreasing or increasing the size of the nose, altering the tip or bridge of the nose, and narrowing or changing the shape of the nostrils. Although Rhinoplasty is most often sought for cosmetic reasons, it can also help correct structural defects that may cause breathing problems. By visiting Dr. Vazquez you can learn more about the nose surgery procedure, its cost, the possible risks and benefits of nose surgery, and more. During the initial consultation, you may be asked to look in a mirror and point out exactly what you would like to see improved. This will help your plastic surgeon to understand your expectations and determine whether they can realistically be achieved.
Patients with sufficient physical and emotional maturity who undergo Rhinoplasty because they want to enhance their self-image are usually very satisfied with their decision. Your plastic surgeon can provide further information if you have an interest in any of these additional procedures.
How will my plastic surgeon evaluate me for Rhinoplasty?
You should come to the consultation prepared to discuss your medical history. This will include information about any medical conditions you may have, medical treatments you have received, previous surgeries including repair of nasal injuries, and medications that you currently take.
Am I a good candidate for a Rhinoplasty?
Some of the indications that you may be a good candidate for Rhinoplasty are:
- Your nose appears too large for your face
- There is a bump on the nasal bridge when viewed in profile
- Your nose seems too wide when viewed from the front
- The nasal tip droops or plunges
- The tip is thickened or enlarged your nostrils are excessively flared
- Your nose is off-center or crooked
- A previous injury has made your nose asymmetrical
It is important that you have a clear idea of how you would like your nose to look and, at the same time, realize that there are limitations to the procedure.
Your plastic surgeon may also ask whether you have difficulty breathing through your nose, suffer from allergies that may cause nasal stuffiness, or are a chronic user of nasal spray. It is important for you to provide complete information. In evaluating you for Rhinoplasty, your plastic surgeon will conduct a routine and painless examination of your internal nasal structures. Your skin quality as well as the size and shape of your nose and its relationship to your other facial features will be carefully studied. In some instances, your plastic surgeon may recommend surgery of your chin, making it either more or less prominent, to improve facial balance. This procedure can be done at the same time as your Rhinoplasty.
