4 Facts You Didn’t Know About Rhinoplasty

The nose is at the center of the face, which often makes it the first characteristic people notice. Those who are unhappy with the appearance of their nose can often feel self-conscious of their appearance in social situations. For these individuals, rhinoplasty surgery can improve the appearance of their nose to create a more proportionate facial appearance. If you are interested in rhinoplasty surgery, read on for four interesting facts you probably didn’t know.

1). Rhinoplasty can correct function as well as appearance

While many individuals undergo rhinoplasty surgery strictly to improve their aesthetic appearance, this procedure can also be done to improve the function of the nose. Patients who are experiencing breathing difficulties or have sustained an injury to the nose can also benefit from a rhinoplasty procedure.

2). Rhinoplasty is one of the most complex procedures to perform

Many surgeons regard rhinoplasty as one of the most challenging procedures to perform. This is due to the small size of the nose and the delicate nasal passages. A skilled surgeon is necessary to effectively sculpt the nose to create natural-looking results. Our board-certified plastic surgeons have extensive experience performing rhinoplasty procedures for beautiful results.

3.) Rhinoplasty is very customizable

Rhinoplasty is a very versatile procedure, which makes it a great option for meeting an array of different needs. Along with both choices of open and closed rhinoplasty techniques, surgeons can also combine rhinoplasty with a septoplasty or sinus surgery, if needed. Our Denver surgeons can work with you to sculpt the nose you have always wanted.

4.) Your health can affect the outcome

Your overall health can have a big impact on the outcome of your rhinoplasty procedure. During your consultation, your surgeon will go over your medical history to determine if you are healthy enough for surgery. Patients with certain health conditions may be asked to postpone their surgery until the condition is under control. However, most rhinoplasty patients are generally healthy and experience great results.
