Rhinoplasty, also known as a “nose job,” is an option for patients unhappy with either the size or the shape of their nose. In addition to the cosmetic benefits procedure, however, rhinoplasty has much more versatile applications, which include improvement of nasal function after a traumatic injury or sickness or to help patients with breathing problems that affect their sleep patterns and the ability to exercise. Rhinoplasty has a goal and that goal is to revise the patient’s nose to the desired appearance and functionality while keeping in mind: the skin type and the entire face architecture.

Rhinoplasty consultation: what to expect?
Rhinoplasty like mentioned above is the reshape/restructuring of a nose commonly known as ” Nose job”. To undergo a nose job, you need to book an appointment with your surgeon, and that consists of a lot of things such as talking casually about your nose — what you liked and disliked about it and any relevant medical concerns and conditions —that sort of thing. Afterward, an evaluation will be done to see if you’d be a candidate for rhinoplasty. Your surgeon will inspect the inside of your nose to check for a deviated septum, etc… He will examine the thickness of your skin, measure the width of your nose, and check out the tip, all quick and painless.
He will take a bunch of pictures from different angles that will assist him in the task. Some surgeons will ask you to schedule another appointment, some will show you the same day after a quick review of three distinct perspectives of your nose and what they will be correcting: front, profile, and from below. With each photo, he will present a revised image of what your nose could look like with surgery — and, wow, what a rush of happiness you get there! However, note that rhinoplasty patients will need to wait until their nose is fully developed before undergoing the surgery.
