Rhinoplasty Can Enhance Your Self-confidence


Rhinoplasty, or surgery of the nose, can enhance your profile. The surgery can even out the bridge of your nose, the symmetry of your nose, or the tip of your nose, among other benefits. Candidates for rhinoplasty include people who want to realistically improve their natural appearance, or those who have suffered facial trauma.

Dr. Oren Lerman: Rhinoplasty, or surgery of the nose, can improve facial appearance. It can improve the profile of your nose. It can improve the proportion of your nose to the surrounding face, and it can address specific areas that you're concerned about. Such as, a bulbous tip, or a drooping tip, or even an upturned tip, or the bridge of the nose, either because it's too wide or because you have a hump, or a concavity on the bridge of the nose. You're a good candidate for rhinoplasty if you are over the age of 13, and facial growth has stopped, and if you have specific concerns, but realistic expectations, for what can be achieved. If you overall just want to improve your self-confidence or the appearance of your nose and face. Rhinoplasty can also improve breathing problems if you have a deformity of the nose that's causing difficulty with breathing. Sometimes rhinoplasty is necessary after trauma, because you've injured yourself, or because the shape of your nose has changed because you got into an accident. Rhinoplasty is a very individualized process. You should do it to fulfill your goals, not to live up to somebody else's desires, or to try to fit into some type of ideal image.
