People who are unhappy with the shape and size of their nose can consider rhinoplasty cosmetic surgery. Also known as a “nose job” or nose reshaping surgery, rhinoplasty provides an effective, safe and proven solution to improve the shape and size of the nose.
Nose reshaping surgery can help patients feel more self-confident by balancing the facial features when undertaken by an experienced and highly-trained surgeon. It can also help address structural issues such as conditions that lead to breathing problems.
Astute plastic surgeon Dr. Paul McCluskey provides nose reshaping surgery to patients in Atlanta, Buckhead, Georgia, and surrounding locations.
Most people who receive rhinoplasty are displeased with the appearance of their noses and seek to make their faces more proportional. A fewer number of rhinoplasty candidates are patients who are experiencing discomfort or breathing issues because of structural abnormalities or a previous rhinoplasty.
The ideal candidates for a nose job are in good overall health, cognizant of the risks associated with the procedure, and have realistic expectations from the surgical outcomes.
An ideal candidate for a rhinoplasty cosmetic surgery may:
- Have a nose that they is excessively large or very small relative to other facial features
- Have a bump on the nasal bridge
- Have a wide nose
- Have a nose tip that protrudes, droops, or is enlarged
- Have nostrils that are too flared or pinched
- Have a bulbous tip
- Have a nose that is off-center or crooked
- Have undergone an injury leaving the nose asymmetrical
- Have breathing problems because of irregularities with internal nose structure (such as a deviated septum or related conditions)
Rhinoplasty Surgery for Teens
Rhinoplasty is a sought-after plastic surgery among teens. The surgeon and teen patients should carefully understand whether a nose job is the correct cosmetic surgery alternative. The surgeon should make sure that the decision to undergo nose reshaping surgery is the patient’s own choice rather than a consequence of parental or peer pressure.
Besides, surgeons recommend that girls should not undergo the procedure until they are 14 or 15 years of age while boys should wait for some more years beyond that to undergo a nose reshaping surgery. The growth of the nose would have been complete by this time.
The most suitable way for a person to establish their candidacy for rhinoplasty surgery is to set-up a consultation with a skilled surgeon. The surgeon will evaluate the patient’s health history, quality of the skin, aesthetic goals, and mental readiness prior to recommending treatment.
Candidates for Particular Types of Rhinoplasty
An individual who has received an injury to the nose may find a post-traumatic rhinoplasty beneficial.
Patients who have lost a portion or their entire nose to skin cancer, an accident, or another serious condition may require a reconstructive rhinoplasty.
People of Afro-Caribbean, Middle Eastern, African American, Asian, or Hispanic heritage are usual candidates for ethnic rhinoplasty.
