Posted Aug 10 2010 12:17am
Today, people are becoming increasingly self-conscious about their appearance and are looking for various surgical procedures to correct or restore various facial features. The nose is a feature that goes a long way in defining the beauty of the face. A nose can be asymmetric, bumpy, weak or too prominent. People who are dissatisfied with the appearance of their nose can choose rhinoplasty to correct its imperfections. Rhinoplasty can achieve the desired aesthetic appearance by reshaping the nose any flaws or deformities.
Rhinoplasty for Facial Harmony
Rhinoplasty is a modern aesthetic surgical procedure that can create facial harmony by reshaping the nose. Rhinoplasty can be performed to correct a nose that is oversized, has a hump on the bridge or an undesirable tip, and even change nostrils which are too wide or too narrow.
The plastic surgeon will first perform a detailed evaluation to assess the specific condition of the patient and determine the right surgical approach for the rhinoplasty procedure.
There are two main techniques in rhinoplasty - closed and open. In the closed technique, the surgeon makes several incisions inside the nostrils. In the open technique, the surgeon works not only inside the nostrils but also makes an incision in the columella, which is the small column of skin that separates the two nostrils. This allows the nasal skin to be lifted back.
Some plastic surgeons combine rhinoplasty with septoplasty for a more stable and natural look. Septoplasty is done to straighten the septum which is the partition between the two nasal cavities. Septoplasty benefits the patient by:
Opening an obstructed nasal air passage
Correcting a septal deviation
Achieving a pleasing dorsal aesthetic line
Rhinoplasty to Boost Self-confidence
By helping to achieve the desired aesthetic appearance, rhinoplasty can build a person’s self-confidence. Much of the outcome of the procedure depends upon skill and experience of the plastic surgeon and also the quality of treatment provided to the patient. To avoid risks and complications, it is advisable to get the rhinoplasty procedure performed by an experienced and skilled specialist.
