Rhinoplasty reshapes the nose and is one of the most common of all plastic surgery procedures. This surgery can reduce or increase the size of your nose, change the shape of the tip or the bridge, narrow the span of the nostrils or change the angle between your nose and your upper lip. It may also correct a birth defect or injury, or help relieve some breathing problems.
If you’re considering a nose surgery, a basic understanding of the procedure and how it’s performed, and what results you can expect, is important. Be sure to ask Dr. Lacerna if there is anything you don’t understand about the procedure.
The Best Candidates for Nose Surgery
Rhinoplasty can enhance your appearance and your self-confidence, but it won’t necessarily change your looks to match your ideal, or cause other people to treat you differently. Before you decide to have surgery, think carefully about your expectations and discuss them with Dr. Lacerna. The best candidates for rhinoplasty are people who are looking for improvement, not perfection, in the way they look. If you’re physically healthy, psychologically stable and realistic in your expectations, you may be a good candidate.
