Rhinoplasty can help many patients improve their look and enhance their appearance. With rhinoplasty you can:
- Change the size of the nose
- Change the angle of the nose
- Make the nasal bridge straight
- Change the shape of the nose tip
- Making the nostrils narrower
In what follows, we will explain more about the most common cosmetic reasons for rhinoplasty.
Rhinoplasty for changing the size of the nose
Some patients who have large noses or wide noses might want to have a smaller nose. Rhinoplasty for wide nose will involve changing the bone structure of the nose. This means that the surgeon might need to break the nasal structure and make it smaller.
Rhinoplasty for changing the angle of the nose
A patient might suffer from a crooked nose for several reasons. It could be caused by genetics only or by an injury that might result in a broken nose. Rhinoplasty for crooked nose can help the patient have a symmetrical face by fixing the deformation of the nose.
Straightening the bridge of the nose with rhinoplasty
Having a hump on the nose is one of the common reasons for having a rhinoplasty surgery for a lot of patients. Some people are born with a hump on the nose while others might have it due to a certain injury or trauma. The growth of the nasal bridge can also result in a hooked nose, which some people might find unattractive.
Rhinoplasty for hooked nose may help those people have a straight nasal bridge and, consequently, a more attractive appearance.
The surgeon can blend the nasal bones and cartilages to make the nose straight. The surgery will involve removing the hump’s structure and pushing the sides of the nose inward.
Rhinoplasty for uneven nostrils
Many people naturally have uneven or asymmetric nostrils. If the asymmetry of the nostrils is obvious, this might call for a rhinoplasty surgery. Another common case is having uneven nostrils after rhinoplasty, which is one of the common reasons for revision rhinoplasty.
However, before making the decision about having a revision nose job because of this reason or any other reason, you have to keep in mind that the final results of rhinoplasty only appear after about one year. So just be patient before deciding to have a revision rhinoplasty and only consider a revision rhinoplasty for uneven nostrils if the asymmetry persists after one year of your previous nose job.
Rhinoplasty to change the shape of the tip
There are a lot of people who would want to change the shape of the nasal tip and make it fit their facial structure. Some of them might want rhinoplasty for droopy tip, while others might want a rhinoplasty for large tip.
Some types of rhinoplasty can only focus on changing the shape of the nose tips like Tip Plasty (bulbous nose job), which is a minimally invasive surgery that can enhance the looks of your nose.
On the other side, some people might need a revision rhinoplasty for upturned nose because the previous nose job has exaggerated turning the nose tip upwards. However, do not consider having a revision rhinoplasty before one year of your previous one.
Rhinoplasty for nostrils reduction
Wide nostrils can be considered unattractive by a lot of people as they make the nose look bigger. Rhinoplasty for making the nostrils narrower is very common. This surgery can improve the aesthetic characteristics of the face and make other attractive features of the face more prominent.
