Enhancing Facial Harmony with Rhinoplasty

A more shapely nose can bring better balance to facial features, increase self-confidence

Nose reshaping before and after

Nose Surgery, or Rhinoplasty, is one of the most common plastic surgery procedures performed today. Many patients find a newfound sense of confidence with a straighter, more shapely nose that is in better proportion to the eyes, lips and chin. Most people seek rhinoplasty for cosmetic reasons, but it can also be used to correct structural defects of the nose that 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, Rhinoplasty can help to improve 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 surgery may be performed to correct nasal birth defects or injuries as well as chronic breathing problems. People considering nose surgery should be at least 15 years of age, as rhinoplasty should only be performed after the nose has completely finished developing.
