Rhinoplasty Explained

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.

Latest 3D simulation technology

Saturday, April 06, 2013

Brighton Plastic Surgery is very pleased to be one of just a few plastic surgery centres in Victoria currently utilising the latest in 3D simulation technology – called AxisThree.  Whilst there are plans to use the technology across a broad range of procedures we are currently focusing on providing  breast implant & contouring, chin implant and neck contouring patients with the opportunity to see a more accurate picture of their surgical outcome prior to surgery.

The main benefit of AxisThree is that it takes a lot of the guess work out of plastic surgery and allows you to be confident in your decision making and realistically see how your procedure will look on your body, ultimately alleviating some of the pre-surgery worries that you may have or concerns regarding what the end result is likely to be.

AxisThree can show you multiple views of how your surgery will look, side by side so that you can compare different looks. It also enables images to be rotated and viewed at any angle.  AxisThree report that 91% of patients surveyed found that the technology greatly improved their consultation experience.

If you are interested in finding out more about this 3D simulation technology or in booking a consultation submit a confidential enquiry and one of our team will be in touch.
