Are you dissatisfied with the appearance of your nose? If you are, rhinoplasty can have a positive impact on your appearance, and it can also boost your self-confidence and overall sense of well-being. But how do you know if you are a good candidate for rhinoplasty.
What is rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure that is done to adjust the shape and proportion of the nose, in order to improve facial balance and symmetry. It can also be done to correct structural issues and improve breathing.
Rhinoplasty is an outpatient procedure that may be done under general anesthesia or IV sedation. The incision for rhinoplasty is usually made inside the nostrils (closed rhinoplasty), and during the operation the surgeon will sculpt the bone and cartilage to the desired shape. Recovery can take 7-10 days.
Are you a Good Candidate for a Rhinoplasty?
If your nose is too narrow or too wide, and is out of balance with your other facial features you may be a good candidate for rhinoplasty. Candidates for rhinoplasty are usually bothered by the appearance of their nose, and
People often undergo rhinoplasty because they think that their nose is too big or too small. Reshaping the nose increases the harmony of the facial features. Another common reason why people have rhinoplasty is to remove a bump on the bridge of the nose.
Candidates for rhinoplasty should be in good health, and have realistic expectations about the outcome.
