Nose Reshaping – Birmingham, Alabama Rhinoplasty
Nose Reshaping or Rhinoplasty is one of the most common plastic surgery procedures performed today. Many patients find a new sense of confidence with a straighter, more shapely nose that is in better proportion to the rest of the face. Most people seek rhinoplasty for cosmetic reasons, but it can also help to fix structural defects of the nose that can cause breathing problems.
The size and shape of the nose is one of the most defining characteristics of the face. When the structure or size of the nose is not proportionate with other facial features, Nose Reshaping can help to correct the disproportionate appearance by:
- Changing the size of the nose
- Changing the shape of the tip or bridge
- Changing the span of the nostrils
- Changing the angle between the nose and upper lip
In addition, nose reshaping may be performed to correct a nasal birth defect or injury as well as chronic breathing problems. Individuals considering nose reshaping should be at least 15 years of age, as rhinoplasty should only be performed after the nose has finished developing completely.
Rhinoplasty with the experienced Board Certified Plastic Surgeons at Hedden Plastic Surgery usually takes about 1-2 hours to complete. Cosmetic surgery procedures are performed at our accredited Outpatient Surgery Suite in central Alabama close to Birmingham and Hoover.
Although it is important to realize that nose reshaping is not intended to achieve perfection, by adjusting the proportion and profile of your nose, rhinoplasty can help to significantly enhance your self-confidence and appearance.
