How Rhinoplasty Changes the Face

The nose is a central feature of the face, extending from the jaws and cheeks to the forehead. Whether a person has a deviated septum or not, a reshaped nose can enhance overall facial harmony. The structure of the face determines the facial harmony, and the shape of the nostrils plays a significant role. When the nose is not in proportion to the rest of the face, it can be a disfiguring factor. A rhinoplasty can correct the shape of the nose and bring harmony to the entire face.

Before having a rhinoplasty procedure, you should avoid smoking and any type of anti-inflammatory medication. The surgeon should also know about any medications or supplements you are taking. After undergoing rhinoplasty, you will need to follow postoperative instructions. The surgeon should provide you with these instructions to ensure that you recover properly. Recovery is a phased process and you will need to follow them carefully. You will need time to heal and adjust to the new shape of your face.

A rhinoplasty procedure can be performed on the bones of your nose or cartilage. It can also change the shape of the face. In some cases, it can even remove the septum, which makes breathing easier. Fortunately, the benefits of rhinoplasty surgery are nearly limitless, and if you’re considering undergoing a re-shape, a consultation with a Seattle Washington facial plastic surgeon is recommended.

A physical exam is crucial before a rhinoplasty surgery. The doctor will need to examine your facial structure in order to determine whether any changes are required. Your doctor will also need to examine your breathing so that you can make sure the re-shape will improve your quality of life. The surgeon should explain what the surgery entails and the benefits and risks of the procedure. It will be the right choice for you and your face.

Before rhinoplasty, you should have realistic expectations about what you want your nose to look like. If you’d like to have a larger or smaller nose, you’ll have to choose a surgeon with experience in ethnic rhinoplasty. In addition, your surgeon should be able to adapt to the specific structure of your face, as well as your skin and facial anatomy. If you’re not comfortable with your current appearance, you should reconsider rhinoplasty.

A rhinoplasty surgery can correct any small defects caused by birth or injury. The surgery can reduce the size of the nose and change the shape. Depending on the reason for the rhinoplasty, it can correct a deviated or overly large nose. When choosing a surgeon, make sure the person you’re getting the best care possible. Only a skilled surgeon can determine how to best meet your needs.

If the nose is too wide it tends to be the main focus when people look at your facial features so if we can just refine the nose it’s still the patient’s nose it’s still their own skin bone and cartilage however if we can narrow and refine the nose then the nose just blends in to the facial features and is not the most prominent feature on a patient’s face.
