Will people notice I got rhinoplasty

 Plastic surgery isn’t something to be ashamed of, but that doesn’t mean you’ll want to tell everyone about it. Some patients prefer to keep their cosmetic surgery a secret. Choose a skilled facial plastic surgeon, such as Dr. William Portuese or Dr. Joseph Shvidler, and the results should be completely natural once you’ve healed. Unless you choose to tell them, no one needs to know you’ve had rhinoplasty. How Can I Get Rhinoplasty Results That Look Natural?. Contact The Seattle Facial Plastic Surgery Center for more information about rhinoplasty surgery.

If you can tell who has had rhinoplasty, it wasn’t a small number. A successful rhinoplasty should create a harmonious appearance by balancing the nose with the other facial features. Ideally, your nose should complement your eyes, mouth, chin, and cheeks while allowing your nose to shine. Even if you weren’t born with a nose, we want you to look like you were. The right surgeon is essential for achieving natural-looking rhinoplasty results. Many plastic surgeons perform rhinoplasty, but not all have the necessary training and experience to produce excellent results. Our facial plastic surgeons are among the best rhinoplasty specialists in the Pacific Northwest. They are rhinoplasty experts who are passionate about their work. They are board certified, which is a distinction held by only a few other doctors. Look for a board-certified surgeon who specializes in rhinoplasty for stunning results. Non-Caucasian patients should seek out a surgeon who specializes in ethnic rhinoplasty. You are much more likely to achieve your best results if you choose the right surgeon

What about scarring? Will I Get Scars From Rhinoplasty?


Scarring is uncommon following rhinoplasty. Rhinoplasty is classified into two types: open rhinoplasty and closed rhinoplasty. Closed rhinoplasty incisions are made entirely inside the nostrils, leaving no visible scar. A small incision is made across the columella, or the strip of tissue that divides the nostrils, during an open rhinoplasty. This incision may leave a scar, but it is usually minor and unnoticeable. Sun exposure should be avoided after rhinoplasty to reduce scarring. Speak with one of our surgeons if you are concerned about scars.


With the right rhinoplasty surgeon, natural-looking rhinoplasty results are possible.
Our surgeons are well-known and respected for their compassionate treatment of their patients. They believe in actively listening to patients and truly comprehending their goals and desires.
