If you are unhappy with your facial appearance or you want to appear younger, there are many cosmetic surgery procedures that can help you meet your goals. Facial plastic surgery can lift loose skin, get rid of fat under the chin and refine the shape of your nose, chin, brow or ears. If you are thinking about undergoing facial plastic surgery, you should consult with a cosmetic surgeon to discuss your options.
The nose is a prominent facial feature and an essential organ to various body processes such as tasting, breathing and helping with hearing. Many people are unhappy about the shape of their nose, including those who have had a nose job. It is not unusual for people to seek revision rhinoplasty because this procedure is complex and some cosmetic surgeons do not perform it well.
Nasal reshaping helps create better balance between facial features. You can choose to undergo this surgical procedure if you are not happy with your hooked, round or bulbous nose. This procedure can also be carried out for functional purposes such as correcting a deviated septum.
In general, nasal reshaping can address a various easily distinguished anatomic portions of the nose. This includes the bridge, the tip and the radix. If you just want to change the shape of the tip, you can undergo tip rhinoplasty. This procedure focuses on altering the tip, which consists of subcutaneous tissues, skin and the paired lower lateral cartilages. Several aesthetic characteristics of the tip of the nose can be transformed through nasal reshaping surgery.
Your cosmetic surgeon can manipulate the curved lower lateral cartilages in order to decrease or increase the projection or rotation of the tip. The surgeon can also manipulate the cartilages in order to increase or decrease the angle between the upper lip and the tip or the width of the tip. Another option is decreasing or increasing the vertical height of the broadest part of your nose.
A cosmetic surgeon can alter various aspects of your nose using different approaches. The open approach involves making an incision on the skin of the columella and several hidden incision inside the nostrils. On the other hand, the internal approach involves making concealed incisions only inside the nostrils. These methods are both good. The ideal method is the one that your surgeon feels will enable him or her to complete all the necessary steps to achieve the desired outcome.
Most commonly, tip rhinoplasty is performed on people who have a bulbous tip. However, this surgery can also address other problems. These problems include a droopy or asymmetrical tip, under or over projection and a hanging columella.
It is important to cautious when planning to undergo this procedure because changing the tip of your nose can alter the whole balance of this body part. Therefore, do not choose a surgeon who is offering you a shortcut to performing rhinoplasty surgery. This procedure varies from one individual to the other depending on his or her nasal anatomy. For the best outcome, you should choose a board certified and experienced cosmetic surgeon to perform the procedure.
