If you are someone who has been considering a rhinoplasty (nose job) you are most likely unhappy with the aesthetic look of a certain aspect of your nose. No two nose jobs are alike and that is because no two noses are the same. Each individual patient has their own personal preference on what they would like their nose to look like.
Whether a patient wants to make a small change, wants more definition, has had recent or past nasal trauma, desires greater facial balance, has trouble breathing, or all of the above, our skilled Utah rhinoplasty surgeons at Utah Facial Plastics can help.
A small tweak to the nose can mean fixing a small bump or divot. Some bumps can typically be corrected without having to go under deep sedation. A small bump can usually be “shaved” in office under local anesthesia while the patient is awake. This is only the case if this is the only concern the patient has with their nose.
If there is a small divot in the nose, this can sometimes be filled in with filler. However, filler is not a long term solution and generally lasts approximately one year.
When a patient wants a more defined nose, this usually means they want to change the tip of the nose. Altering the tip of the nose can mean lifting a droopy tip, making a bulbous tip smaller or vice versa.
Recent or past trauma to the nose can be a huge reason why someone might consider a rhinoplasty. Trauma to the nose typically causes it to be crooked and off-center. Making the nose straight again after trauma is typically the goal for most patients.
With the nose being in the center of the face, it’s important that it provides balance in respect to how well it fits with all features of the face. Complaints about the patient’s nose being too small or large for an individuals face is common and can be corrected with a rhinoplasty. In some cases, our surgeons will also recommend a chin augmentation in conjunction with a rhinoplasty in order to bring balance to the face.
If a patient has trouble breathing through one of both nostrils, it can be corrected alongside any cosmetic changes or as a stand alone surgery.
All of the Above
It is very common that all of the above reasons are why one decides to undergo a rhinoplasty with one of our top rhinoplasty surgeons in Utah. All concerns can be addressed during surgery, typically with an “opened” approach which involves an incision in between the nostrils so the nose can be lifted for easier surgical access.
