It feels good to look in the mirror and be happy with what you see. When a person feels good about how they look, they have increased self-confidence, which affects their professional and personal relationships. Cosmetic surgical procedures such as rhinoplasty allow people to make adjustments to their appearance so that they are happy with how they look.
The primary goal of rhinoplasty is to increase the overall harmony of a person’s face by making their nose proportional to the rest of their face. Rhinoplasty can also be used to correct structural defects in the nose that make it difficult for a person to breathe.
The surgery is used to do the following:
• Make a person’s nose proportional to their face
• Adjust the width of the bridge of their nose
• Change the size and position of their nostrils
• Fix large humps or depressions in the bridge of the nose
• Repair an oversized nasal
• Correct hooking or drooping in the nasal tip
• Make a person’s nose symmetrical
The best patients for rhinoplasty are those who have a realistic expectation of what the surgery can do. For example, a person may have a problem with their nose not being symmetrical.
However, everyone has a nose that is slightly asymmetric, and no amount of surgery is going to create perfect symmetry. The goal of rhinoplasty is to make the face overall symmetrical.
What Happens during Rhinoplasty Surgery?
The first step is anesthesia. This includes local or general anesthesia. The best choice for you will be recommended by the doctor.
Once this is done, a doctor will make an incision inside your nose. Because each individual’s case is different, incision locations may vary. For how we tailor a procedure, contact Athena Plastic Surgery.
The results of rhinoplasty surgery are permanent. It may take a few weeks for the swelling to go down. It might take up to a year for your nasal contour to fully redefine.
Little by little, you will see changes in your appearance until you reach the final permanent outcome. As you age, it is only natural to expect that your face is going to change a little. These changes will affect your nose as well.
