Many of us aren’t that fond of our nose, but first thing every day there it is looking back at us in the mirror. Whether due to simple genetics or an injury when younger, it’s hard to feel good about your appearance when you don’t like the look of your nose. But it doesn’t have to be something you live with — Dr. Low and Dr. Cheung can reshape your nose with rhinoplasty.
After the 20 months we’ve all just been through, maybe it’s time to give yourself a holiday present this year — a new nose at Cosmetic and Reconstructive Specialists of Florida.
What is rhinoplasty?
Commonly known as a nose job or nose reshaping, rhinoplasty has long been a staple of cosmetic surgery. With the end goal of having your nose blend perfectly with your other facial features, rhinoplasty reshapes your nose removing high points or bulges. Plus, if injury or trauma has impacted your breathing capability, rhinoplasty can improve the function of your nose.
As with any surgery, patients opting for nose surgery need to be in good health, with a realistic outlook for the procedure. Beyond that, candidates for rhinoplasty usually have one of three reasons for wanting the surgery.
Appearance — The number one reason is simple aesthetics: you don’t like the look of your nose. Here are some of the most common reasons.
- Your nose isn’t proportional with the rest of your face.
- Your nose is too wide.
- Your nose is too thin and small.
- There is a bump or ridge on your nasal profile.
- Your tip droops downward.
- Your nose isn’t centered.
- The tip of your nose is enlarged.
- Your nostrils are exposed or overly flared.
- A previous injury has made your nose asymmetrical.
Breathing problems — Some people are born with constricted nasal passages, making breathing more difficult. Rhinoplasty, combined with septoplasty, can alleviate these problems by removing cartilage and opening the airway.
Injury — Whether it was a touch football game collision, a car wreck, or other trauma, your nose may have been disfigured and its function impaired. Rhinoplasty can return it to its former shape and position.
