Which Parts of the Nose Can Be Addressed with Rhinoplasty?
If you are considering changes to the appearance of your nose, or if you are looking for options to correct functional nasal problems, you should know that rhinoplasty is a highly versatile procedure that can address a number of common concerns. Here are just a few of the aesthetic areas and functional issues that can be improved with nose surgery:
- Nasal Tip – The tip of the nose can be altered in shape and size, and its contour can be narrowed or refined. A “Tip Rhinoplasty” can focus on this area of the nose alone without making changes to other nasal regions.
- Bridge – The bridge of the nose can be increased or decreased in size. Humps can be minimized and the bridge can be narrowed or enhanced, depending on your ultimate goals. Alterations to the nasal bridge can significantly improve the aesthetic balance and harmony between the nose and other facial features.
- Nostrils – The nostrils can be made smaller. They can also be recontoured to improve symmetry and create a better proportion with the nose.
- Deviated Septum – A deviated septum is one of the most common functional problems with the nose and can often cause significant difficulty with nasal breathing. Rhinoplasty can repair a deviated septum and improve function inside the nose.
- Crookedness – A deviated nose is one of the more difficult things to correct with surgery. During the consultation, Dr. Prischmann will try to assess whether your deviation is correctable or can be improved.
