One of the most dramatic facial cosmetic surgeries for achieving facial balance is rhinoplasty. When the nose is oddly shaped or seems out of proportion with the other features, it is distracting. The eyes, lips and other features are less noticeable when the nose becomes the focal point of the face. Rhinoplasty is a cosmetic nose reshaping surgery that can accomplish beautiful outcomes. We offer rhinoplasty surgery at our clinic in Toledo, OH.
For decades, rhinoplasty has been one of the most requested cosmetic surgeries for men and women of all ages. Whether genetics gave you an overpowering nose or an injury created a misshapen appearance, rhinoplasty can be used to design an appealing nose shape or size.
There are two main types of rhinoplasty procedures – open and closed. Open rhinoplasty requires incisions on the outside of the nose to access the entire bridge and nasal type for extensive nose reshaping. A closed rhinoplasty hides the incisions inside the nostrils, but it is limited on what parts of the nose can be reshaped. We offer both types of nose jobs at pēkomd®, performed by our board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Peter Koltz.
Nose Reshaping for Facial Balance
Contouring the nasal tip or amending the size of the nose can make a significant difference in your appearance. There are many nasal features that are undesirable, especially when they are overpowering. Some of the issues that can be changed with rhinoplasty surgery include:
- Straightening a crooked nose
- Reducing a dorsal hump
- Flattening nose bumps
- Slimming a bulbous nose
- Slimming wide nostrils or alar base
- Elevating a flat nose
- Reshaping the nasal tip (droopy, pinched or upturned)
Rhinoplasty surgery requires general anesthesia and about two weeks of recovery or downtime. There is swelling and bruising that occurs, but these will dissipate in one to two weeks.
If you are unhappy with the shape or size of your nose, rhinoplasty could give you a more attractive face and improved self-confidence.
