Commonly referred to as a nose job, rhinoplasty can provide a vast range of both functional and aesthetic benefits. These procedures are performed to minimize or eliminate cosmetic issues resulting from congenital defects, impact injuries, past facial surgeries, and more. If you’re unhappy with the shape, size, or overall functionality of your nose, rhinoplasty may be used to redefine this structure.
Reshape and Refine the Nose Bridge or Tip
Rhinoplasty is frequently performed to reshape various aspects of the nose, such as the nose tip or the bridge. If you have a bulbous or pinched nose tip, this procedure can create a stronger, better defined, and more balanced structure overall. It can also correct small or oversized nostrils and uneven nostrils. For patients who have suffered impact injuries affecting the face, this procedure can remove large, noticeable bumps at the bridge resulting from breakage and improper healing.
Alleviate Common Functional Issues
In terms of the functional benefits, this procedure enables our surgeon to open or amend obstructed nasal passageways. This will, in turn, alleviate problems like mouth breathing, sleep apnea, and snoring, among many other things. When rhinoplasty is performed as a functional procedure, efforts can additionally be made at the patient’s request to improve overall nose aesthetics.
Create Better Facial Symmetry After Other Cosmetic Enhancements
Undergoing procedures that create significant changes in the overall facial structure could require alterations to the nose for ensuring continued facial symmetry and balance. For instance, people who intend to get cheek or chin implants may want to consider the benefits of also streamlining or augmenting the nose to create a seamless and natural look overall. As such, rhinoplasty is frequently paired with other procedures.
