Rhinoplasty – Nose Reshaping
The nose is the most prominent feature of the face. It is the feature that we all notice first in portraits of ourselves or of others. We notice the “hump” or the big, bulbous tip. We notice when it’s too long or pointing downward when we smile. More than anything we notice when the shape of the nose takes away from the symmetry and the beauty of rest of the face.
The purpose of nose reshaping surgery, rhinoplasty, should be to bring harmony and symmetry to the face. No two faces are the same and so no two noses should be the same. The nose should fit the face. A nose after rhinoplasty should enhance the other features of the face and make the eyes and cheekbones stand out.
For this reason, each patient and I spend time reviewing the features of the nose and the face that should be changed and accentuated, respectively. Each patient’s nasal surgery is specialized to correct the imperfections, but also to maximize its function. What’s the point of having a nose that looks better if you can’t breathe through it?
Please review the photos in the Before and After Gallery, but more importantly, make an appointment to discuss the features of your nose that are keeping you from looking your best.
