Do you happen to be unsatisfied with the size and shape of your nose? Do you wish to change its appearance? Rhinoplasty is the most effective way to change the size, shape, and function of your nose. It’s important to understand whether rhinoplasty is a good option for you, however. Dr. James P. Bonaparte of JB Cosmetics and Facial Surgery, located in Ottawa, Canada, can assist you in determining whether you should undergo a nose job procedure.

Fundamentals of Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty is one of the world’s most commonly performed plastic surgeries. Rhinoplasty can be performed for cosmetic and medical reasons, although in many cases it’s a combination of both. Let’s take a closer look at how rhinoplasty can benefit you.

Cosmetic Rhinoplasty

Cosmetic rhinoplasty can be used to bring the nose into better proportion with the rest of the face. Concerns that can be corrected with rhinoplasty include:

  • Wide nose bridges
  • Extraordinarily large nose
  • Imbalanced nostrils
  • Bumps or humps
  • Big nostrils or those that point out and up
  • Noses that droop over the top lip
  • Crookedness

Medical Rhinoplasty

Some people may need a nose job because they may have been born or developed a deviated septum or any internal structure that makes breathing difficult. Others may need it because they have suffered facial trauma, an animal attack, or a broken nose. Medical rhinoplasty can repair or restructure the nose so that breathing function is improved.

What to Consider Before Rhinoplasty

The best nose job candidate has realistic expectations about their surgery outcomes. It is essential to take the time and work with your plastic surgeon and discuss what results are possible with rhinoplasty. Furthermore, Dr. Bonaparte will ensure you’re pursuing rhinoplasty for the right reasons and help you prepare for what the process will entail.

Your health status will be checked to ensure you are healthy enough for a nose job since you will be under anesthesia during the surgery. Additionally, you will need to have an ideal place to recover and time off work. You will also need a support system, such as people who can help ensure you follow your surgeon’s instructions and transport you home after surgery. During a consultation, Dr. Bonaparte will explain in detail what your rhinoplasty entails. He will also use digital imaging to help you visualize how your nose job results will look.
