A better-trained nose can completely transform your face and strengthen your self confidence. The nose is the salient feature of the face. Thus, being dissatisfied with the size or shape of your nose can affect your social life and career. Children with deformed noses can be teased at school, which makes them very aware of their appearance.
Nose surgery is the most popular type of cosmetic surgery and can alter the shape of your natural nose or correct bumps and twisted forms caused by injury. Although most nose surgeries are performed for aesthetic reasons, some patients are operated on to improve their nose breathing function.
Cosmetic surgeons use two main techniques in nasal surgery. The “open” technique means that the incisions are made outside the nose, while in the “closed” technique, the surgical incisions are made inside the nose. Your natural structure of bone and cartilage can limit the amount of changes that can be made to the shape of your nose. You should book a consultation at a reputable clinic to see what improvements can be made. Photographing the shape of the desired nose helps the surgeon to advise you on what can be achieved.
Nasal surgery (rhinoplasty) is a relatively simple procedure performed under general anesthesia and requires hospitalization. Nasal scars that deform are usually located in the nose and therefore can not be seen. External incisions are needed to reduce the size of the nostrils, although these scars are hidden in the nostril fold.
Common problems that can be solved with a nose operation are:
bumps in the nose
a bulbous nose tip
length or shape
size of the nostrils
After the operation, a bandage is applied on the nose, which you must wear for a maximum of ten days. Your nose can be swollen and squeezed for 6 weeks. Therefore, consider the timing of the operation when planning important social events. The cost of working the nose depends on the surgery actually performed. The cosmetic surgeon may need to file and reshape the bone or, if you only wish to reshape the tip of the nose, you may need to reshape the cartilage only at the end of the nose. If you are not happy with your nose, do some research on the Internet and look at pictures of nasal jobs before and after the procedure. Some changes can be very subtle, but significantly improve the appearance of the face.
