A New Year, a New Nose: What to Know About Rhinoplasties
- Posted on: Jan 15 2019
There are many parts of your body that you can conceal if you’re not happy with them, but when it comes to your nose, it’s a lot harder to hide it. Many of us are unhappy with at least a part of our nose. Maybe you don’t like the size of your nose or maybe it’s the tip of your nose that bugs you. If you are unhappy with the shape or proportion of your nose, don’t just deal with it; let Dr. Taylor Pollei help you.
What Is a Rhinoplasty?
A rhinoplasty or a nose job, is one of the most popular surgical procedures that is done. During this procedure, Dr. Pollei will resize or reshape the nose to help correct any cosmetic issues that you have. If, however, you also have been injured, have troubles snoring, or if you have deviated septum, then Dr. Pollei may also make the corrections at the same time.
Who Is an Ideal Candidate?
Ideal candidates for a rhinoplasty are patients who don’t smoke, have overall good health, and are realistic about the results that they want from surgery. Additionally, patients must be at least 13 years old because we have to ensure that they have finished their facial growth.
What Problems Can A Rhinoplasty Treat?
A rhinoplasty can be used to treat cosmetic issues, injury, or medical concerns as well. Specifically, patients typically get a rhinoplasty because:
- The bridge has a bump or depression
- The tip droops
- The tip is bulbous
- The nose is crooked
- The nose seems off center
- The nose isn’t proportional with the rest of the face
- The nostrils are excessively flared
