How can Rhinoplasty Nose surgery help me?

Your Rhinoplasty surgeon in Calgary can improve your self confidence by improving the following issues:

  • Balance the harmony between your nose and other facial structures (such as your chin)
  • Reduce the width of your nasal bridge
  • Straighten a crooked nose
  • Reduce the width of your nasal tip
  • Remove a bump on your nose bridge (remove a dorsal hump)
  • Improve a droopy nose tip
  • Reduce the width of your nostril

What is the goal of a successful rhinoplasty surgery "nose job"?

Giving you a Natural looking nose, and beautiful nose that does not look operated, is the primary goal of your facial plastic surgeon.

According to the nasal surgeon, who is the best candidate for Rhinoplasty surgery?

The Ideal Candidate for cosmetic Rhinoplasty nose surgery are the following:

  • Clear goal for what is the desired nasal change
  • Realistic expectations
  • Healthy : Physically and Emotionally
  • Avoid smoking and drug use (like cocaine): these will slow down healing
  • Between the ages of 18 and 35 years old (when nasal growth is mostly complete. Age can also impact expectations and healing). An experienced rhinoplastic surgeon can deliver excellent results for patient older than 35 years old.

The following issues present a challenge to the Rhinoplastic surgeon:

Thick skin (Thick skin heals more slowly and takes a longer time to achieve the final result. Also thick skin does not shrink as much as thin skin after surgery, and so the nose may always look slightly larger than desired, and may require steroid injections after rhinoplasty sugery to address thick scarring under the skin)

A Crooked nose (This can be made more straight looking, but will never be 100% straight. Crooked noses are weaker than straight noses, and may collapse during surgery. An experience and well trained Rhinoplasty Surgeon is needed in order to help achieve the desired result with maximum risk prevention)

A nose that is too long or too pointy. (Realistic expectations are very important in this case, since there is a limit to how much the nose can be pulled inwards, but an experienced Rhinoplasty surgeon will be able to improve the length and tip shape satisfactorily)

Definition of Rhinoplasty:

Rhinoplasty surgery is a cosmetic surgery of the nose that changes the shape of the nose. It is also called a "nose job" commonly. Since the nose is a very delicate 3 dimensional structure, surgery of the nose is also very delicate and requires great expertise and care. You should consult with a specialized Nasal Rhinoplasty Surgeon, with the necessary training, skill and experience in Rhinoplasty surgery. This cosmetic nose surgery can greatly improve self confidence and self esteem.

Rhinoplasty surgery can also be performed together with a Septoplasty surgery, which helps to straighten the inside crooked (or deviated) nasal septum. This can help to improve breathing from the nose. Any rhinoplasty surgery that changes the outside shape of your nose will also affect your breathing, and so it is very important for you to have a consultation with your surgeon to have a full evaluation and understanding of cosmetic nasal surgery results and goals.

The main goal of your facial plastic surgeon in Calgary, Alberta, is to give you a beautiful and Natural looking nose, while at the same time, keeping the function of breathing intact.
