If you’ve been feeling self-conscious and dissatisfied with the shape, size and/or profile of your nose, you may be considering rhinoplasty (commonly referred to as a “nose job”). Dr. Adam Becker, the rhinoplasty surgeon at Triangle Facial Plastic Surgery in Raleigh, NC, has over 10 years of facial plastic surgery experience, with an extensive background and specialized training in rhinology and nasal surgery. Dr. Becker is highly renowned for his customized techniques that deliver gorgeous, natural-looking results, and outstanding patient care. Individual results may vary.
Common Concerns Corrected with Rhinoplasty Surgery Include:
Width of the Nose: Rhinoplasty can improve a nose that is too wide or too narrow, creating better harmony between all the facial features.
Nasal Bump: Rhinoplasty can straighten out your nasal bridge so that it is straighter and better balanced.
Irregularities of the Nasal Bridge: Irregularities along the bridge of the nose can cause a nose to look too wide or asymmetric. The goal during rhinoplasty is to create a nasal bridge that gently curves in a smooth continuous line from the brow to the tip of the nose, resulting in a softer more elegant appearance.
Nasal Tip Projection: A nose that extends too much or too little can create an unbalanced profile. Rhinoplasty can correct projection so that the nose better fits the face.
Nasal Tip Rotation: The angle of your nose affects the attractiveness of both the front view and the profile. A nasal tip that is too rotated can look turned up and overdone. A nasal tip that is not rotated enough can look droopy and overly long.
Nostril Size: Nostrils that are too wide, too narrow, or too large can make a nose look completely out of proportion. Rhinoplasty can adjust the nostrils so that they are better proportioned with the rest of the nose and facial features.
Correction of Functional Nasal Issues: Some patients undergo rhinoplasty surgery to correct significant breathing problems. External or internal nasal deformities that either occurred congenitally or due to trauma can restrict breathing. Correction of these abnormalities involves improving the nasal structures and increasing stability to allow for the appropriate passage of air.
Correction of Acquired Deformity: Other patients undergo rhinoplasty to correct deformity due to trauma. A broken nose, even if the bones are reset, can result in deformity and crookedness. Rhinoplasty can reshape the bones and make a crooked nose straighter.
