Rhinoplasty, sometimes referred to as “a nose job”, is a surgical procedure that alters the shape of the nose. This can be for medical purposes, such as to correct breathing problems related to the nose, or for cosmetic reasons. Reduction rhinoplasty will reduce the size of the nose, or specific parts of the nose, whereas augmentation rhinoplasty increases the size of the nose or enhances specific parts of the nose.
Your nose is one of your most prominent facial features, so if you are interested in rhinoplasty it is vitally important to find the best surgeon to perform the procedure so that you can be assured of the results you want.
First and foremost, you should ensure that the surgeon is appropriately qualified and has plenty of experience in performing the procedure you are interested in. Additional indicators of expertise may be that the surgeon has presented at professional conferences or had scientific papers or books published.
You will also want to check out the results of procedures that the surgeon has performed on other patients. You may be able to view before and after photos so that you can compare the surgeon’s previous work with your desired effect. These photographs can also be extremely useful in helping you to form clearer expectations of the difference that the rhinoplasty procedure will make to your nose.
Finally, there is no substitute for reading reviews from former patients. This is how you can find out not only about the results of the procedure but also the patient’s overall experience, to really help you to decide if rhinoplasty is for you.
