Having an attractive, proportionate nose is important to many people in the NYC area, which is why it’s one of our most common plastic surgery procedures. If you are dissatisfied with the appearance of your nose, Dr. Edmund Kwan can help.
Why patients choose rhinoplasty?
The rhinoplasty procedure (commonly referred to as a nose job), is the only way to permanently change the way the nose looks. Rhinoplasty can reshape this central feature; ultimately change the look of your entire face.
Being embarrassed or unhappy with your appearance can impact your self-esteem. Rhinoplasty can improve your life by giving you a boost in confidence.
There are two main reasons patients opt for rhinoplasty: aesthetic and medical.
Aesthetic benefits of rhinoplasty
Aesthetics are probably the number one reason for rhinoplasty procedures. During the procedure, we can bring harmony and proportion to the face by removing lumps and bumps, reducing size, or improving a dropping tip.
Medical benefits of rhinoplasty
The rhinoplasty surgery can have medical benefits as well as aesthetic. Patients with a deviated septum or nasal valve collapse can benefit from the procedure, which can improve breathing and the quality of sleep.
Candidates for Rhinoplasty
Most people can benefit from rhinoplasty. The most important thing is for patients to have realistic expectations of the results. Patients who are younger than 16 are generally not good candidates, as their noses are still growing.
Types of Rhinoplasty
- Open – The incision is between the nostrils.
- Closed –The incision is in the nose.
- Revision –Done if the initial procedure did not produce the desired results.
