Rhinoplasty (Nose Job Surgery)
Rhinoplasty, or surgery to reshape the nose, is one of the most common of all facial plastic surgery procedures for men and women. As the central feature of the face, the nose can impact the balance and aesthetics of a face when it is misshapen or distracting in its size. Dr. John Anastasatos at Los Angeles Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills has the artistic skills needed to achieve exceptional results for his patients desiring rhinoplasty, or nose job surgery.
Rhinoplasty can reduce or increase the size of your nose, change the shape of the tip or the bridge, narrow the span of the nostrils or change the angle between your nose and your upper lip. It may also correct a birth defect or injury or relieve some breathing problems. The nose job is one of the most beautiful operations of the face if it is completed with artistic and surgical skill, ensuring it looks natural. A single small change of the nose affects the look of the whole face, which is why nose reshaping must be conservative and very calculated.
Reasons for Aesthetic Nose Reshaping
There are a wide variety of reasons patients desire an aesthetic nose reshaping. A nose that is too large and overwhelms the face can be distracting. At the opposite end, a small nose can make the face appear flat and without depth. Some of the objectives of rhinoplasty include:
- Shorten the nose and make it thinner
- Reduce the hump at the top of the nose and make the top straight or add a curve
- Raise the bridge of the nose
- Support the septum
- Create a straight septum or nose
- Refine the nasal tip
- Create smaller nostrils
- Create a nose that fits the patient’s face
Fine-tuning the shape of the nose can make a significant difference on the overall appearance of the face. Like a missing piece of a puzzle, reshaping or resizing a nose can make all the other facial features come together for a more attractive appearance.
Types of Rhinoplasty We Offer
Dr. Anastasatos is a board certified plastic surgeon with the exceptional surgical skill and artistry needed for performing nose shaping procedures. Every patient receives personalized consultations before their procedure to ensure Dr. Anastasatos understands the desired outcome, so he is able to meet and exceed their expectations. The types of nose reshaping cosmetic surgeries we offer include:
There are two kinds of rhinoplasty operations. The open rhinoplasty and the closed rhinoplasty. Open rhinoplasty simply means that there is an incision inside the nose and also part of the incision is outside the nose on the nostril. This outside part can have a stair-step look or a V-shape look. The closed rhinoplasty means that the whole nose reshaping is done via incisions that are all inside the nose. Open rhinoplasty may be preferred in secondary or revision rhinoplasty surgery because it can provide better exposure.
Change Your Look with Rhinoplasty
A rhinoplasty procedure will have a dramatic impact on your appearance. If you are self-conscious of your nose due to its size or shape, plastic surgery can give you a chance to feel more confident in your appearance. Subtle changes to the nose shape can harmonize your facial features, bringing more attention to your eyes and mouth.
