Rhinoplasty, or nose surgery, is one of the most in-demand plastic surgery procedures around the world. Men and women of all ages undergo rhinoplasty mainly because they have been embarrassed, or experienced low self-esteem or anxiety about their appearance. In addition to the aesthetic reasons for rhinoplasty, Dr. Scot Glasberg will be able to reshape, reduce, or augment your nose for functional purposes. Birth defects can be corrected, injuries can be repaired and your breathing can be improved.
A rhinoplasty can change the overall look of your face by causing you previously overlooked facial features to get noticed. Depending on your need, rhinoplasty can alter the shape, size, appearance, and projection of your nose. Rhinoplasty will be able to restore your facial harmony and balance your facial features.
Reasons to Have a Rhinoplasty
Some of the reasons why most people come to Dr. Glasberg for a rhinoplasty include the following:
- They are unhappy with the shape of their nose
- Their nose is either too large or too small
- Their nose is either too wide or too narrow
- They have a bump on the bridge of their nose
- Their nose is turned up
- Their nose is not symmetrical
- Their nose is crooked
- They are unhappy with the size of their nostril
- They have a deviated septum
- They experienced an injury
- They are unable to breathe
- They have sleep apnea
- They snore
Dr. Glasberg may suggest a procedure to complement your rhinoplasty in order for you to achieve a more harmonious balance across your face. A chin implant, a brow lift, or dermal fillers may help to accentuate your other features. Candidates for rhinoplasty should be at least 13 years of age and finish with their facial growth before having the procedure. For good results, patients considering rhinoplasty should be in overall good health, not be smokers, and have a realistic expectation of the outcome of the procedure.
