Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure to improve the shape and structure of the nose, including: the width, bumps, or depressions of the bridge; a bulbous, upturned, or drooping tip; wide or large nostrils; and overall symmetry and proportion to the rest of the face. Your Charlotte, NC facial cosmetic surgeon can consult with you about the various surgical options.
In order to be a candidate for rhinoplasty, your nose must be done developing, and you must be healthy. Teen rhinoplasty is available, though nose development may not be complete until late into the teen years.
Before surgery, you will need to have a consultation with your surgeon. They will examine your nose, take photos of your nose for a before and after comparison, and ask you a few questions about your goals, overall health, and past procedures.
