How to Select A Nose Shape For Rhinoplasty
Rhinoplasty often referred to as a nose job, is a surgical procedure that resizes and/or reshapes the nose so that it is more aesthetically pleasing to the patient. Rhinoplasty can also be used to correct injuries to the nose, like those from car accidents or sports. Once you’ve made the decision to go under the knife, use these tips to help you choose the nose shape for rhinoplasty:
Set realistic expectations
To avoid disappointment after your surgery, set reasonable goals for the procedure. Even if a patient thinks they want a drastic change, they often change their mind after the procedure. To make sure people are as satisfied as possible with their new look, we are on the side of caution and favor small steps for big changes.
Do your homework
Look up before and after photos from former rhinoplasty patients, especially those with facial features similar to your own. Your surgeon should be able to provide you with photos of their past work. There are also tons of photos online you can browse. Print out photos of noses you like and show them to your surgeon. Together, the two of you can come up with the best nose shape for your face while making sure it’s a chance you will love.
Another great way to find out more about the rhinoplasty procedure, including how other people decided on their new nose shapes, check out testimonials and reviews. Start with those for the plastic surgery practice you intend to use, but also take time to look through other ones available online. You never know what useful information you might find!
Ask your surgeon
As someone who has likely completed countless rhinoplasty procedures, there’s no one better than your surgeon to ask for advice on nose shape. Your surgeon will have unique insight into which nose shapes fit best on your face shape. Always involve your surgeon in the nose shape selection process to be sure that what you are thinking of is reasonable and will actually yield the results you want.
