In years past, rhinoplasty was a remarkably aggressive procedure that dramatically altered the size and shape of the nose. While that may have been en vogue at the time, it certainly isn’t today. This week, New You Magazine reports on the growing trend of natural-looking rhinoplasty, asking the question, “What makes a beautiful nose?”
When cosmetic nose surgery first entered the world stage, the goal was simple: create a small, perfectly symmetrical nose. As the standard of beauty evolved, plastic surgeons began to understand that each patient is different and has unique cosmetic goals. “A good result in contemporary aesthetic rhinoplasty is a refined, natural-appearing nose,” reports New You. “The artistic imperative is to achieve results that integrate personality, ethnicity and aesthetic design.” Natural-looking results have become the new standard of beauty.
Gender also plays a huge role. When it comes to male patients, the goal is often to create a “strong” nose. As New You puts it, “A man’s nose should project confidence, balanced with the chin and profile.” With men, a natural-looking appearance is even more important. The goal is not to perfect one’s appearance, but to enhance it. In the end, it’s all about creating the nose that’s right for you! Now read on to learn more about the Rhinoplasty Procedure and how it can be custom-tailored to fit your needs.
The Rhinoplasty Procedure
It is no secret that the nose is one of the most prominent features of the human face. Thankfully, when patients are dissatisfied with the shape or size of their nose, nose reshaping can often be of help. During a rhinoplasty consultation, we will sit down to discuss your cosmetic goals: Is your nose too big or too small? Do you have a bump on your nose or some other irregularity? What is your ideal nose shape? The consultation is our time to create your customized treatment plan.
Rhinoplasty is usually an outpatient procedure performed under IV sedation or general anesthesia. During treatment, incisions are made and the bone and cartilage are sculpted to the desired shape. The entire procedure generally lasts one to two hours. Interested? Take the first step–schedule an appointment today.
