Rhinoplasty is the term given to the surgical procedure designed to reshape the nose to improve its appearance. Rhinoplasty can reduce or increase the size of your nose, change the shape of the tip or the bridge, narrow the span of the nostrils, or change the angle between your nose and your upper lip.
It may also correct a birth defect or injury, or assist in relief of some breathing problems.
Plastic Surgeons usually recommend that patients wait until they are at least 18 years of age, before undergoing Rhinoplasty. The nose may not be fully developed before this age. Assuming that you are in good health, there is no upper age limit for this procedure.
The best candidates for Rhinoplasty are those who are looking for an improvement, not perfection in the way they look. It is important that you understand how the results of Surgery may be limited by the anatomy of your nose and that matching someone else’s features may not compliment your own.
A new, more balanced look to your face may enhance your self-esteem and confidence. Rhinoplasty can dramatically alter an unbalanced face, creating a marked difference in appearance. In other instances, even a small change in some part of the nose may be insignificant to others, but highly significant to your own personal perception.
