Spotlight on…..Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty (commonly referred to as a nose job) is a popular plastic surgery procedure in men and women of all ages.  Rhinoplasty is surgery of the nose that can improve appearance and proportion of the nose, enhancing facial harmony and self confidence. 

While the shape of your nose is usually hereditary, the appearance may have been altered in an injury or during prior surgery.   Since the nose is the most defining characteristic of the face, even the slightest alteration can greatly improve one’s facial profile.  Rhinoplasty surgery may also correct impaired breathing caused by structural abnormalities in the nose.

Rhinoplasty surgery can be used to adjust: 

  • NOSE SIZE: in relation to other facial structures

  • NOSE WIDTH: at the bridge

  •  NOSE PROFILE: with visible humps or depressions on the bridge

  • NASAL TIP: that is large or bulbous, drooping or too upturned

  • NOSTRILS: that are large, wide or upturned

  • NASAL ASYMMETRY and deviation.

Who should consider rhinoplasty?

For anyone looking to improve any of the nose structural issues outlined above, there is no upper age limit for having your nose reshaped however Mr Mutimer recommends that younger people wait until they are at least 16-18 years of age before considering the surgery.  The main reasons for this are to ensure that the nose is fully developed and that the decision to have rhinoplasty surgery is carefully considered.

Rhinoplasty surgery is a long lasting procedure.  Candidates for the procedure should carefully consider whether the surgery is right for them, consult a specialist plastic surgeon to discuss expectations and what is realistically achievable.  Axis Three (a 3D simulation technology used by Brighton Plastic Surgery) is useful technology that allows you to see a 3D simulation of your nose before and after surgery.
