For decades, rhinoplasty has remained one of the most requested plastic surgery procedures for both men and women. Since the nose is so influential on the appearance of the face, it can make a dramatic difference when it is reshaped. Oddly shaped or damaged noses may distract from the rest of the facial features. There are specific nose features or reasons that commonly trigger people to seek a rhinoplasty consultation.
Size: Reduction Surgery
The most common complaint about noses from patients is the size. While there are those who want to increase the height of their nose, most size complaints are about noses that are too large. Reduction rhinoplasty is very popular, which can be used to resize the nose to appear more balanced with the rest of the facial features.
Tip: Refinement Surgery
The tip of the nose can be a problem area. Some individuals have an upturned or rotated nasal tip that can make nostrils appear larger. Other nasal tip issues include a bulbous, pinched or hooked/droopy appearance. Refinement rhinoplasty can reshape the nasal tip for a more attractive appearance.
Crooked: Bridge Reshaping Surgery
Broken noses that were not set correctly or a deviated septum can result in a crooked nose. The bridge of the nose may curve to the right or left, distracting the eye from other features. A bridge reshaping surgery can restore a straight nose. If there is extensive structure damage to the bridge or septum, cartilage grafting may be required to support the new nose shape.
Genetic Features: Ethnic Rhinoplasty
Ethnicity plays a large role in the nose shape. It is also one of the biggest reasons patients seek a rhinoplasty procedure. Pronounced ethnic nasal features can have aesthetic consequences. Ethic rhinoplasty can reshape the nose to tone down overly ethnic traits for a more refined shape that still matches the patient’s ethnic face and features.
