The nose is the central feature of the face, and can affect its whole balance. A nose that is too large , too small or crooked can make the other features look out of proportion or out of position, and attract a great deal of negative attention from others that can affect the way you feel on the inside as well as the outside.
You might feel that your nose needs a little adjustment to get it just the way you want it, or you might want to correct a nose that’s been broken while taking part in a sport. – may be you don’t like the way that its slightly upturned at the tip, or would prefer a smaller or larger bridge. The size and shape are a personal choice, and using surgery to achieve this choice is an increasingly popular option. Rhinoplasty is one of the most well known and frequently performed cosmetic surgeries. The reshaping of the nose can improve the appearance of the whole face and can also correct breathing problems caused by a broken nose.
There are three types of rhinoplasty: reduction rhinoplasty, septo-rhinoplasty and augmentation rhinoplasty.
A reduction rhinoplasty can reduce the length and width of the nose, as well as alter its shape. The nostrils may also be reduced. Reducing the nose will not affect the skin surface, which will shrink back on the new frame of the nose.
If your nose is deviated or bent you may be offered a septo-rhinoplasty to straighten it. An augmentation rhinoplasty can be performed to build up the nose. Your surgeon will examine your nose and advise you on the most appropriate operation.
As most nose reshaping is carried out internally, there are rarely any visible scars left following surgery. You will need to wear a small plaster dressing for about 7 days following treatment, to stabilize the new structure and prevent the nose being knocked. There may be some bruising under the eyes, but this will disappear within 7 to 10 days, after which you can return to work.
