What is rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty is simply a technical term for a nose job. The procedure is a type of plastic surgery that aims to reshape your nose for cosmetic or functional purposes. Since a cosmetic rhinoplasty can drastically alter your appearance, it’s a highly personal procedure.
Long before your surgery takes place, Dr. Garcia reviews your expectations and goals. It’s important to realize that, while certain noses may look great on people you admire, they may not be the right fit for your face shape. Dr. Garcia may use computer imaging to show you your potential results.
If you’re getting rhinoplasty to improve your breathing, you’ll likely work with Dr. Garcia and a team of other specialists to make sure that the procedure is successful in improving the structure of your bone and cartilage, and that the results look natural for your appearance.
What can rhinoplasty do for me?
There are many goals that rhinoplasty can help you achieve. You can inquire about the possibility of getting rhinoplasty to:
- Improve your nose’s symmetry
- Reduce bumps or divots
- Fix large or upturned nostrils
- Adjust the size of your nose
- Correct a bulbous nose tip
- Correct a deviated septum
- Open your airways
No matter your reason behind getting the procedure, Dr. Garcia makes any necessary adjustments to make sure that your results look natural and proportionate to the rest of your face.
Am I a candidate for rhinoplasty?
Like any cosmetic procedure, rhinoplasty isn’t the best option for everyone. To make sure that you’re physically and mentally prepared to undergo the surgery, you’ll take part in a comprehensive evaluation with Dr. Garcia.
You are a candidate for rhinoplasty if:
- The procedure is medically necessary
- Your face is finished developing
- You don’t smoke
- You’re generally healthy
- You understand the limitations and have realistic goals
- Your skin isn’t too thick
- You don’t play contact sports
You must also be prepared to undergo multiple surgeries to get your ideal results from a rhinoplasty.
Having a large, unappealing, or inadequately functional nose can cause frustration and low self-esteem. To adjust your nose’s appearance or inner structure, call Plastic Surgery Arts Center or book your consultation for rhinoplasty online today.
