Rhinoplasty procedures are designed to enhance the look and functionality of the nose. Whether you have a bulbous nose tip, uneven nostrils, a bump on the bridge of your nose, or problems with snoring, rhinoplasty may be able to help. These surgeries have become increasingly advanced throughout the years. As such, they currently entail less risk and less recovery time than they did in times past. They are perfect for all those who want to increase their confidence, breathe easier and gain greater overall facial balance.
Getting Rhinoplasty To Complement Other Facial Surgeries
If you’ve recently undergone cosmetic surgery for lifting the brow, enhancing the lips, reshaping the eyes or dramatically altering your chin and cheeks, this procedure could be a beneficial addition to your overall cosmetic plan. Our surgeon may recommend making changes to the nose to create facial symmetry after other facial features have been altered. In many instances, minor changes to the look and overall shape of the nose are essential for ensuring seamless and perfectly balanced facial aesthetics.
Correcting Uneven Nostrils
You’d be hard-pressed to find a person with a perfectly symmetrical face. Some people, however, have glaring differences in the overall shape and size of their nostrils that diminish their confidence and attract curious stares. In these cases, rhinoplasty is often a short, simple procedure that involves little to no tissue removal. There is no need to alter or shave bone structures and recovery time is minimal.
Lifting a Drooping Nose Tip or Resizing a Bulbous Nose
Rhinoplasty is one of the most effective ways to refine or redefine the nose tip. This procedure can be used to lift drooping nose tips, reshape and resize bulbous noses or create entirely new shapes at this portion of the nose. Much like procedures that are designed to improve the appearance of the nostrils, this type of rhinoplasty generally does not require alterations to the bone structure or an extended recovery time. There are even some instances in which non-surgical alterations can be made to the nose tip. This is only true, however, when people wish to add to the size of the nose for the purpose of enhancing or reshaping it. If you have a thin nose and want greater volume or if you simply want to have the nose tip uplifted, ask Dr. Bull about your options.
Altering the Bridge of the Nose
Many people seek rhinoplasty when they are unhappy with their nose bridges. You might have an abnormally large or sharp bridge, or it may have a few bumps or uneven areas. Rhinoplasty can be used eliminate bumps and other abnormalities in the bridge and to improve the functionality of the nasal passageway. This type of procedure is ideal for those who suffer from snoring and other severe, breathing-related sleep issues.
