Surgery to reshape the nose, (rhinoplasty) is among the most common of plastic surgery procedures. Every year, half a million people who are interested in improving the appearance of their noses seek consultation with board certified facial plastic surgeons. Some patients are dissatisfied with the noses they were born with or with the way that aging has changed their nose. Other patients may be seeking an improvement in breathing or correction of an injury which has distorted the nose. Regardless of the reason, nothing has greater impact on how a person looks than the size and shape of their nose. As the most defining characteristic of the face, even the slightest of alterations to the nose can greatly improve one’s appearance.
The nose can be surgically improved in a number of ways by reducing or increasing the overall size, removing an unwanted hump, changing the shape of the tip or the bridge, narrowing the width of the nostrils, or changing the angle between the nose and upper lip. Rhinoplasty can improve the balance between the nose and other facial features. At Premier Image, we take great pains to achieve a natural rhinoplasty result without that tell-tale “surgical” look.
If you’re considering rhinoplasty, you’ll want to know how the surgery is performed and how it can improve your looks, self-confidence, or health. During a consultation Dr. DeJoseph can provide answers to many of the questions you may have.
Good rapport between the patient and surgeon is essential to a successful facial plastic surgery outcome. It is during the consulting stages prior to surgery that trust, based on realistic expectations and exacting medical expertise, develops. Dr. DeJoseph is an expert double-board certified facial plastic & reconstructive surgeons and can answer specific questions about your specific needs and concerns.
Good health and realistic expectations are essential as with all facial plastic surgery. It is also critical that the patient understand nasal surgery. Because there is no ideal in nasal surgery, Doctor DeJoseph strives to improve the nose aesthetically while also creating better harmony with the other facial features.
Revision rhinoplasty is much different and more difficult than performing a primary rhinoplasty (first time nasal surgery). The surgeon has to be much more experienced in the techniques of nasal surgery in order to accomplish a good result on patients who have had a previous rhinoplasty surgery.
