A rhinoplasty procedure, the patient can work with their surgeon to achieve a desired nose shape that is in harmony with the rest of their face, and that meets their individual needs and goals. The shape of the nose can be changed in several ways, such as:
- Reducing or increasing the size of the nose
- Changing the shape of the tip of the nose
- Narrowing the width of the nostrils
- Straightening a crooked nose
- Reshaping the bridge of the nose
- Correcting a deviated septum to improve breathing
However, it’s important to have realistic expectations and to understand that the surgeon’s expertise and skill will play a critical role in determining the final outcome of the surgery. The surgeon will also consider the patient’s facial structure, skin thickness, and other factors to determine the best possible nose shape for the individual.
During the consultation, the patient can bring pictures of the desired nose shape, and the surgeon will explain what is possible, what is not possible, and what are the risks and benefits of the chosen procedure. It’s essential for the patient to have open and honest communication with the surgeon to ensure that their goals and expectations are well understood, and that the best possible outcome is achieved.
