Is there only one type of rhinoplasty?
Funny, when I think of a 'nose job,' it's almost like it's a dirty term! But I'm sure much has changed since I last gave getting a nose job serious thought and it's time I got hip. I've recently been seriously considering rhinoplasty after swearing I wouldn't for years on end because I felt like my nose suited my personality. Well, I think my personality is pretty well cemented now so how about I just let my personality suit itself and I'll treat my face to a nose that suits it? The problem with my nose is that it's pointy and kind of thin and under the wrong circumstances makes my chin disappear. Which type of rhinoplasty would best correct that? Would anything need to be broken? Any help will be appreciated!
Rhinoplasty is an all-encompassing term that refers to reshaping the nose, either for cosmetic or functional purposes (i.e. difficulty breathing). If you want to improve the appearance of your nose, you should consult with a qualified surgeon who has extensive experience in performing rhinoplasties, as they can often be complicated and challenging. We use 3D imaging in our office to help understand what our patients are looking to achieve. It is very important that you have all of your questions answered when you go in for your consultation.
