Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure that modifies the size, shape and proportions of the nose for a more harmonious overall facial appearance. When performed by a qualified plastic surgeon, rhinoplasty can have a tremendously positive effect on an individual’s appearance and self-confidence.
If you are considering rhinoplasty, Mr Miles Banwell recommends you take the time to research the procedure and your surgeon thoroughly, including browsing through his or her before-and-after photos. Here, we discuss signs of a good rhinoplasty procedure.
An expert plastic surgeon is able to enhance the profile, shape and size of the nose in a way that looks completely natural. He or she will take into account the individual patient’s unique facial and nasal structures to design a treatment plan that achieves the desired outcome in the most natural way possible. Signs of unnatural-looking rhinoplasty results vary from patient to patient but may include the nasal tip appearing too pinched or the nose appearing pencil-like, which can happen when the tip has been narrowed as much as the bridge of the nose.
As the central feature of the face, the nose plays an important part in the overall facial appearance. A nose that is crooked, off-centered, too big or too small can affect the appearance of the other facial features. For instance, a small nose can make the chin look too big while an overly large nose can make the chin appear weak or the eyes too small.
When viewing before-and-after photos, avoid zooming into the patient’s nose. Instead, look at their overall face. Does the patient’s face look more balanced and proportionate after rhinoplasty, or do the patient’s facial features look off-balance?
A possible complication of rhinoplasty is damage to the internal nasal structures, including those that affect breathing. When reading patient testimonials, pay close attention to what they say about breathing function after rhinoplasty. It is important to note that even the most expertly planned and performed rhinoplasty can lead to a post-op complication. The red flag to watch out for is if the surgeon has numerous former patients who complain of improper breathing or other complications after rhinoplasty.
