Are You Unhappy With Your Nose?
- September 19, 2015

If you are unhappy with your nose, you're not alone. Many people feel dissatisfied with the size or shape of their nose or experience pain and discomfort from an injury or deformity.

Rhinoplasty is a common but complex surgical procedure that reshapes the cartilage and bone in the nose. Many people make the decision to pursue rhinoplasty to improve the function of their nose or its shape and aesthetic balance with the rest of their facial features.

Surgery can improve the appearance of a nose by correcting a large dorsal hump or tip, increasing or decreasing the size of your nose, changing the shape of the tip or bridge, improving asymmetry or decreasing or increasing the span of the nostrils.

The benefits of rhinoplasty include more than just increased self-esteem and self-confidence. Surgery may be performed to repair a nose injury, correct a birth deformity, infection or tumours, help you breathe easier, sleep better and enjoy life more.

The decision to pursue rhinoplasty and choosing the right surgeon is a very personal one. It's well recognised that a good relationship and understanding between patient and surgeon is essential to achieve successful surgery. A good rhinoplasty surgeon must have great attention to detail, have an appreciation for all the nuances of the aesthetics of the nose and face, and understand the many functional components of this complex organ.
