The most popular facial plastic surgery
217,000 nose jobs were performed in the United States in 2014, making it the most popular kind of facial plastic surgery. It can do anything from changing the size of the tip of the nose to making it point in a slightly different direction to reducing a nasal hump to repairing a broken nose. By straightening the septum, rhinoplasty can fix breathing problems. With the nose in the center of the face, few things can make the face look better than improving the nose.
In a nose job, the surgeon reshapes the bone and cartilage under the skin. In a closed rhinoplasty, the doctor makes the incisions inside the nose, where nobody can see them. In an open rhinoplasty, the surgeon will make the incision on the outside of the nose — usually between the nostrils.
Charlottes best rhinoplasty surgeon
One mistake that patients sometimes make is to look at a photo of the nose of a celebrity and decide they want a nose that looks just like it. Trust the judgment of a facial plastic surgeon who can look at your whole face and decide what sort of nose is best for it. If you want more input on the process, look for a surgeon who has a computer imaging system that can show you what your face might look like with a new nose.
