The nose is a major focal point of the face. It’s often the first thing a person sees when they meet you, and as a result, for better or for worse, it makes a major impression. That’s why it can be very discouraging when you’re not feeling confident about the appearance of your nose.

An embarrassing-looking nose is a reason why many people choose to avoid social situations. It can affect their self-esteem and self-confidence, making them too self-conscious to feel comfortable meeting new people and socializing with friends. If you’re feeling self-conscious about your nose, rhinoplasty can help.

Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty, more commonly known as a nose job, can fix the appearance of your nose with ease, giving you a nose of your choosing. It is able to correct a wide variety of cosmetic issues, including a nasal hump, a drooping nasal tip, and overly wide nostrils.

While cosmetic reasons are definitely the leading reason for rhinoplasty surgery, there are also other medical issues that can be treated with a nose job. For example, if you suffer from a deviated septum and it is causing breathing problems, rhinoplasty can to help you. A previously broken nose that hasn’t set correctly can also be treated with this procedure.

Are You a Good Candidate?

You may be a good candidate for rhinoplasty if you’re unsatisfied with the appearance and/or functionality of your nose. The face typically appears more attractive if there’s a better symmetry to it, and a rhinoplasty can help you achieve that.

If you experience difficulties in breathing or a constant onset of sinus infections, rhinoplasty can help. Changing the dimensions of the nasal architecture can clear the airways for easier breathing.

You’re a good candidate if you experience any of these problems and are in good physical health, have realistic expectations, and understand the potential complications relating to the procedure.

Before the Surgery

Before the date of your rhinoplasty procedure, you’ll meet with Dr. Miranda to discuss the details of your surgery. During this informative consultation, Dr. Miranda will walk you through the procedure so that you thoroughly understand what to expect, including necessary preparation and the recovery process.

Discuss your goals and the results you expect from the surgery and remember to keep them realistic. A simple nose job won’t change the shape of your whole face. It can give you a more proportionate look, but the appearance of your nose is the only thing that’s changing.

You can choose the shape, size, and overall look of your nose. After you have a detailed conversation with Dr. Miranda regarding your aesthetic goals, he will create a surgical plan for your rhinoplasty procedure that’s acceptable to both of you.
