Rhinoplasty can correct a number of cosmetic issues impacting the nostrils and nose. These include:
- Crooked presentation
- Bumps and humps
- Nasal slope
- Nostril width
- Tip shape, size, and projection
The goal of rhinoplasty is to bring your nose into ideal alignment with surrounding facial features while correcting both minor and pronounced cosmetic imperfections. The procedure can also be used to correct issues such as septal deviation which may help to improve breathing function, reduce congestion, and help reduce risks of recurrent sinus infection.
Am I A Good Rhinoplasty Candidate?
If you are unhappy with the appearance of your nose, you may be the ideal rhinoplasty candidate. The procedure is best for people who do not smoke or use products containing nicotine, and who are in generally good health. It is important that you follow all of the pre and postoperative directions provided by our office, including avoiding certain herbs, supplements, and medications before and after nose surgery. The best candidates are people who are willing to follow these instructions and able to take some time away from work and other obligations during the initial stages of recovery.
There are different considerations based on factors that can be unique to your body that will influence your candidacy for rhinoplasty.
