When you are unhappy with the size, shape or contours of your nose, you can opt for a rhinoplasty, which is a surgical procedure designed to change the shape of bone and cartilage throughout the nose. Because the nose is a major part of the face, it is vital that this cosmetic surgery is done with care, focusing on your face’s unique aspects. Ask yourself these questions before you head in for your rhinoplasty consultation.
Why Are You Choosing a Rhinoplasty?
Consider why you are choosing to have a nose job. Are you having one to correct bumpy bones as a result of a past injury, or are you choosing one because you have never been happy with the shape and size of your nose? A rhinoplasty done to correct an injury will mainly seek to return the nose to its prior shape while other rhinoplasties will seek to change the overall shape of the nose.
What Are Your Goals?
Rhinoplasties can be done for many reasons. They can change the shape of the bridge of the nose, shorten the overall length of the nose, change the shape of the nostrils or narrow the base of the nose. Be sure to share your goals with your provider. He or she will also take your ethnicity into account to ensure the perfect shape.
What Will Look Natural?
Above all, Dr. Tavoussi’s goal for each of his patients is to ensure that their faces look perfectly natural. A totally natural look will include a mixture of mathematical symmetry and artistry. Too much precision can make the face look sharp while too much artistry can make the face look unnatural.
When you choose a surgeon for your rhinoplasty, you want to be sure to choose one who will put the needs for your face as his or her priority. You do not want to end up with a cookie-cutter nose, so to speak, but instead want to be able to enjoy a gorgeous nose that is perfect for your unique facial shape and size.
