About Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty is the most common facial and overall the third most popular operation in aesthetic plastic surgery.

A rhinoplasty is the medical term for the procedure commonly known as a nose job. The aim of nose surgery is to reshape the nose to make it more attractive.

Why have a Rhinoplasty?

Nose jobs are carried out on men and women of all different age groups. Usually, the person is a young adult, but sometimes surgery is done for younger teenagers and for people who are a lot older.

Having a surgical procedure of any kind is a big decision to make. This is especially true when you are not ill. If you choose to undergo a rhinoplasty to reshape your nose, the chances are that you will have been thinking about this for a long time.

People may choose this type of surgery for a variety of reasons. They may just be motivated to improve their looks or this decision may be based on a long-standing hang-up. Changing the appearance of the nose in these circumstances may boost self-confidence. Sometimes it is to help with a career in show business or television or perhaps to boost a career in modelling. In some instances there has been a relationship break-up and this helps with the idea of a fresh start. A rhinoplasty is often an option following an accident or even an assault which has resulted in leaving a deformity that needs to be fixed.

The motivation for rhinoplasty surgery should be well considered and the expectation of the result should be realistic. For example, the late and great Michael Jackson might have wanted just too much of a change. The best surgery is subtle and matches the look of the nose with the features of the rest of the face. An experienced surgeon will help to advise on just how far to go and tell you what can realistically be achieved.
