As the new year approaches, many individuals consider making transformative changes to enhance their appearance and boost their confidence. Rhinoplasty, commonly known as a “nose job,” is a popular cosmetic procedure that reshapes the nose, addressing aesthetic concerns and improving facial harmony. Understanding the basics of rhinoplasty can help individuals contemplating this procedure make informed decisions as they consider a new nose for the new year.
What is Rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure aimed at altering the shape, size or structure of the nose to achieve a more balanced and harmonious facial appearance. It can address various concerns, including:
- Nose Size: Resizing a nose that is too large or too small in proportion to the face.
- Nasal Profile: Correcting humps, bumps, or depressions on the nasal bridge.
- Nasal Tip: Refining the shape, size, or projection of the nasal tip.
- Nasal Width: Narrowing or widening the nasal bridge or nostrils.
- Functional Issues: Improving breathing difficulties caused by structural nasal problems.
The journey begins with a consultation with double board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Aleksandr Shteynberg who specializes in rhinoplasty. During this meeting, Dr. Aleksandr Shteynberg will evaluate your facial anatomy, discuss aesthetic goals and outline a customized treatment plan.
What to Expect
Rhinoplasty can be performed using either an open or closed approach. The open technique involves creating a small incision across the columella (the strip of tissue between the nostrils), allowing for greater visibility and precision. The closed technique involves incisions made inside the nose, leaving no visible external scars. Dr. Shteynberg reshapes the nasal framework, cartilage and bone to achieve the desired outcome.
After the procedure, patients typically experience swelling, bruising, and mild discomfort, which gradually subsides over time. Full recovery may take several weeks to months, during which the final results become more apparent as swelling diminishes.
Rhinoplasty is a highly customizable procedure tailored to each individual’s unique facial features and desired aesthetic outcomes. Candidates for rhinoplasty should be in good overall health, have realistic expectations and seek improvement rather than perfection in their nasal appearance. Some of the benefits of rhinoplasty include:
Improved Facial Harmony: Rhinoplasty aims to achieve facial balance by enhancing the nose’s proportions in relation to other facial features.
Enhanced Confidence: A well-proportioned nose can boost self-esteem and confidence, positively impacting personal and professional aspects of life.
Functional Improvement: In some cases, rhinoplasty can address breathing difficulties caused by structural nasal issues, enhancing both form and function.
Selecting a skilled and experienced plastic surgeon specializing in rhinoplasty is crucial for the best outcomes.
