Rhinoplasty- The other name for nose surgery

It is not hard to believe the current marketing hype around nose surgery being a major achievement. At least, that’s what appears each time people take a look at the increasing acceptance of Rhinoplasty. Nose surgery also known as Rhinoplasty is the nation’s most commonly performed cosmetic surgery that refines a nose’s size and shape and improves interrupted breathing. The procedure is being considered by a growing number of people and is a well accepted option to improve both nose appearance and function.

Quest for beauty and health takes to Rhinoplasty
It is true that nothing has as great of an impact on how a person looks than the size and shape of the nose. There are several components to your nasal shape that you may wish to alter in some way, such as the profile from the side view, the length or width, or the shape of the tip. Although the decision to undertake nasal surgery can be daunting, the results often exceed patient expectations in terms of appearance and, perhaps even more importantly, function.
Am I a good candidate for Rhinoplasty?
You will begin the process with a doctor consultation where you will be asked many questions to ensure you are a good candidate for the procedure. Any of the following conditions may make you a good candidate for Rhinoplasty:
  • * Your nose looks too wide seen from the front
  • * The nasal tip droops
  • * You have to improve the symmetry of your nose
  • * You have to eliminate visible humps or depressions on the bridge of your nose
  • * You need to correct structural defects in the nose allowing you to breathe easier

Assuming you are in good health, there is no defined age for having your nose reshaped. The results of Rhinoplasty enhance the balance between the nose and other facial features.

Preparing for Rhinoplasty
It is important that you have a clear idea of how you would like your nose to look and, at the same time, realize that there are limitations to the procedure. During the initial consultation, you may be asked to point out exactly what you would like to see improved. This will help your surgeon understand your expectations and determine whether they can be realistically achieved.

Be sure to ask questions
It is very important to ask your cosmetic surgeon about your treatment. It is natural to feel some anxiety, whether it is excitement for your anticipated new look or a bit of preoperative stress. Don’t be shy about discussing these feelings with your surgeon.

All surgeries carry some uncertainty and risk
Thousands of successful nose operations are performed each year. While the procedures are generally safe when performed by a qualified and experienced Rhinoplasty cosmetic surgeon, complications can arise. However, in almost all types of nose surgeries, the possible complications are infrequent and can generally be treated. You can reduce your risks by choosing a qualified Rhinoplasty surgeon, such as one of our Associated Plastic Surgeons of Kansas City doctors, and closely follow his or her advice.

The decision to have nose surgery is extremely personal and you will have to decide if the benefits will fulfill your goals and if the risks and potential complications are acceptable. Your surgeon will explain in detail the risks associated with surgery. You will be asked to sign consent forms to ensure that you fully understand the procedure as well as review the instructions for a healthy recovery.
