What is a Rhinoplasty (Nose Job) ?
Rhinoplasty surgery is a great way to improve your overall appearance in a generally subtle way. In fact, just slightly altering the contour or shape of your nose can affect the overall appearance of your face. Many people who come to our Edina, MN plastic surgery center have benefited from undergoing rhinoplasty and other options for facial plastic surgery. Dr. Christopher J. Kovanda assesses each patient’s needs when it comes to any surgery. During the consultation process, he will determine if a nose job will be best for you and your needs.
Rhinoplasty Before & After
Am I a Good Candidate for Rhinoplasty?
There are many different reasons why people would get a nose job, and hence many different people are candidates for this surgery. Let’s take a brief moment right now to look at Edina, MN rhinoplasty and who qualifies for it.
Obviously the best candidates for rhinoplasty are people who have issues with the size, shape, and contour of their noses. If the nose is crooked or too prominent or shaped in a less than desirable way, rhinoplasty can effectively address these issues quite simple. When it’s bumps on the bridge of the nose or asymmetry in shape, rhinoplasty can help.
In addition, people who have had their noses injured or broken are great candidates for rhinoplasty. In such cases, rhinoplasty can reshape and restore a broken nose to look like it did prior to the injury. This is great for people who play contact sports of who have injured their nose during an accident.
Rhinoplasty Can Help Your Breathing
What many people don’t realize is that a nose job can also effectively address a number of different respiratory problems. If the nasal cavity is not properly shaped or a patient has developed sleep apnea or some other issue with the airway in the nose, a rhinoplasty can be used to remedy these issues. Generally these surgeries target the internal structures of the nose rather than the outward appearance.
Schedule A Consultation
In all of the above cases, it’s important that patients be in good overall health and have no adverse medical conditions that would prevent them from undergoing surgery. Patients should also have realistic expectations about surgery and be well-informed of what they can expect.
