Reasons to Consider a Rhinoplasty

There are several reasons why rhinoplasty is one of the most popular forms of cosmetic surgery that is performed today. One of the main reasons is that it can drastically improve the appearance of an individual’s face. Think about the location of the nose. It is right in the middle of the face. Any issue with the nose can completely throw off a person’s facial symmetry. Even small changes can do a lot to help a person look better as well as improve their self-confidence.

Are There Variations Of a Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty surgery time varies from patient to patient. Depending on the issue that you are dealing with and the results you would like to see, our surgeon will either use an open or closed technique. There are variations in the procedure that we offer here at Facial Aesthetic Concepts. Other than traditional rhinoplasty, we offer tip-plasty and septoplasty. Tip-Plasty is a procedure where our surgeon would focus on tip of the nose and the lower third of the nose. Septoplasty focuses on the septum, which is the cartilage structure between the right and left nostrils.

Modern-day cosmetic surgeons can do a lot when it comes to reshaping the nose. At times, surgeons will remove or rearrange cartilage in the nose. If your nose has a hump in it, too big or has been broken in the past, this form of cosmetic surgery can be used in order to help you feel more satisfied with the way your nose looks.

What to Expect When Getting a Rhinoplasty

It is important for all rhinoplasty candidates to understand that as soon as the surgery has been performed, they are not necessarily going to see the results immediately. After the surgery, you may have a bit of swelling. You’re also going to need to wear a nasal splint.

While rhinoplasty is at times used for medical purposes, particularly to help individuals improve their breathing, it is used nowadays to help people improve the way they look. Your nose determines a lot about how other people view you and how you see yourself. If you want to change and improve the way your nose looks, rhinoplasty may be right for you. The only way to find out if you’re a good candidate for rhinoplasty is to come in and see our medical team. Contact us today to make an appointment in San Clemente, Aliso Viejo or Rancho Santa Margarita office!
