What is Rhinoplasty?

One of the biggest complaints that plastic surgeons hear from patients is not the size of breasts, butts, or stomaches, but the size and appearance of the tip of the nose. Rhinoplasty is the method used to correct the tip of the nose.

If you feel that the top of your nose is too round and full, you may think that it detracts from the rest of your face. Rhinoplasty can work to correct this and refine it so that the tip of your nose appears to be in proportion to the rest of your face.

Rhinoplasty Techniques

If you have complaints about your nose and rhinoplasty is your choice to correct it, your plastic surgeon may use different techniques. Some doctors choose to use sutures, as they do not require the cutting and removal of any tissue. The tip is literally sewn together to make a skinnier, more refined looking end of the nose. Another technique that your surgeon might use is cephalic resection; where a portion of the cartilage in the tip of the nose is removed to make it smaller and less full looking.

Risk of Rhinoplasty

No surgical procedure is without risk, and that includes the various surgical methods of correcting the tip of your nose. Anesthesia will need to be used in these procedures, and there is the risk of bruising, swelling, and infection at the incision site, just as there is with any surgical procedure. Be sure to consult thoroughly with your doctor and surgeon before deciding to have any rhinoplasty procedure done.

If you feel that the tip of your nose is really off-balance, and you think that a change in your appearance would make you feel better, speak to a board certified plastic surgeon. They will know the best course of treatment for your nose, and if you will be able to get a more aesthetically pleasing look by having rhinoplasty performed.
