3 Things to Consider When Considering Rhinoplasty

kramer-rhinoplasty-image Known by many names, Rhinoplasty—also referred to as Nose Reshaping, Nose Surgery, and informally, as a Nose Job—is a frequently requested cosmetic procedure. When performed correctly and for the right reasons, Rhinoplasty can be a life altering and gratifying experience.

But, is a nose job for you?

One Nose is Not Like the Other

Your nose is as unique as the rest of your face. Dr. Kramer likes to remind each of his patients that a nose that looks fabulous on someone else may look awkward on them. It is key to create harmony with facial features such as your lips, eyes, and cheek structure. While it’s ok to have ideas of the shape you’d like, make sure to keep an open mind as to what will look best on you.

Realistic Expectations

Rhinoplasty can transform your nose, but, in keeping with your nasal architecture, only so much change is possible. Remember, a nose job builds from your existing nose—reshaping, sculpting, and enhancing your natural features. It is important to maintain the nasal framework to ensure safe and lasting results. Removing too much nasal tissue does not allow for the nose to be properly supported—over time, this may cause the nose to droop and in extreme cases, even collapse.

Are You a Good Candidate?

As with any cosmetic procedure, being in good health is key. Other important factors include: a clear complexion, firm nasal cartilage, and forgiving skin. Clean living and a healthy nose not only better the surgery itself, but also your body’s ability to heal and recover.
