We cannot change our genes. It is likely that you have inherited some admirable features from your parents, but it is also likely that there are some features that you have inherited from your parents that you wish they would have kept to themselves. If the way your nose looks bothers you, you should know that you are not alone. Interestingly, nose surgery is an art that has been part of medical science for hundreds of years. The difference is that today, thanks to state-of-the-art technology, rhinoplasty is a safe, effective and popular procedure.
There are multiple reasons why people get rhinoplasty. Some people get a “nose job” because they have functional problems. Maybe you have a deviated septum that is inhibiting your ability to breathe well. Others get rhinoplasty surgery because they do not like the appearance of their nose. It could be that their nose is too large for their face, or their nose might be crooked as a result of a birth defect, accident or injury.
If you are one of those people who has always hated the appearance of your nose from childhood, then you know very clearly what you don’t like about your nose and what you want to fix. This is good because when you sit down with our cosmetic surgeon, he’s going to want to know what aspects of your nose you don’t like and what in particular you want him to do for you. Based on that information, he is going to look at the structure of your nose and will tell you what steps he can take to improve your nose.
Something to remember when having rhinoplasty for cosmetic reasons is that just because that cute little button nose looks great on your friend, it does not mean that it is going to look great on you. The human nose is not a one-size-fits-all thing. It is very particular to the other features on an individual’s face. So to get the best results from rhinoplasty, you need to be willing to listen to the recommendations of our cosmetic surgeon and have him explain to you how certain changes to your nose will affect the overall aesthetics of your face.
