Rhinoplasty – The Aesthetic Surgery of the Nose


Usually, the individual shape of the nose is determined by genetic factors, but the shape can also be negatively affected by traumas or surgical interventions. Rhinoplasty can improve the aspect of the nose and also can increase the confidence one has in general. Even so, this surgery will not change your image so drastically, meaning that there is no perfect shape for a nose. In addition, it will not determine a change in other’s people behavior towards you.

What can be improved?

Rhinoplasty will improve a few aspects of your nose. Fist of all, the dimension of the nose is the fist thing that influences all your features, so this is what will be changed with this surgery. Apart from this, it can improve the width of the nose at the bony part, the aspect of your face seen from one part or another (the half-face aspect), as there can appear different shapes – a hump or a hollow part, and some others.

Rhinoplasty is an extremely customed surgical procedure, which you need to have only due to personal reasons and not for others. This procedure is usually recommended to people who are older than 13 years old, as that is the age when the development of the facial skeleton is completed. In addition, a good health is required, less or no smoking at all and, finally yet importantly, you need to have clearly defined goals but realistic ones.

 How does it go?

You will have to tell your doctor your medical history and about allergies, if any. You also need to tell him about the constant medication that you take or if you had any former surgical interventions. Your health will be evaluated through specific tests. They will make photos and measurements of your facial elements.

This is the time when you will be talking about your expectations and the available surgical methods to acquire these expectations. You will also learn about possible complications and the varieties of anesthesia that are available. Your doctor will tell you about the factors that can influence the surgery and the result, like the structure of the bones and the nasal cartilage, the shape of the face, your skin, age, expectations and so on.

Getting ready for rhinoplasty

The surgeon will give you precise information about diet, medical treatment, smoking and facial hygiene. If you strictly respect the instructions given for before and after the surgery, then the rhinoplasty will go smoothly. It is very important to make sure you are not alone after the surgery. You will need somebody to get you home after the rhinoplasty, and also your attendant should come with you at the next consultation.

Possible complications

This is a surgery that must be made only by authorized persons, and by this, we mean a plastic surgeon or an eNT physician. The possible complications that can appear are common to any surgery: infections, bleeding or side effects for the anesthesia. The possible complications can be reduced only if the instructions of the doctor for before and after the surgery are respected.

The scars that are left are almost not visible, as they are extremely small and can be seen slightly only for the open type of surgery. Sometimes, for almost 5% of the patients, there can be needed another intervention to improve some aspects. This can happen to even the most experienced surgeons and are inevitable.

What is recommended by all plastic surgeons is this: wishing for a too perfect nose can be extremely bad. Serial interventions through rhinoplasty are not recommended.

Plastic Surgeon – Enhancing Your Appearance

We are living in a day and age when medical science has evolved to a point where you do not have to walk around unhappy with the way your face or body looks like. A plastic surgeon is one who specializes in reshaping body tissues in order to give them the desired look or restore functionality. The plastic surgeon is able to correct disfigurement and reduce scars caused by accidents or defects from birth.

Face surgeries

There are a variety of surgeries that can be done on the face to make it look more appealing. A nose job or rhinoplasty is a procedure intended to reshape the nose and give it a natural shape. The procedure can also be used to enable the patient breath better through the nose. Anti-wrinkle injections are used to smooth out wrinkles on the face, giving you a glowing youthful look.


Dermal filler injections are also used to reduce wrinkles and give volume to the skin layers. If you have sagging skin on your face, then a facelift would be perfect as it gets rid of the sagging skin found on the face and neck. Other procedures that can be carried out on the face include cheek and chin implants, eyelid surgery and ear surgery to correct large ears.

Body surgeries

There are a number of body surgeries that can be performed by a plastic surgeon. A tummy tuck is a procedure used to get rid of a protruding stomach by removing excess fat and skin in the abdominal area, giving you a tightened abdomen. Liposuction is another procedure used to get rid of unwanted fat that cannot be removed through exercise.

Fat can be removed from the thighs, arms, neck or abdomen. Labiaplasty is a procedure conducted on women to reduce the size of the lips on either side of the vagina to give it a better appearance and also enable the patient to wear tight clothing comfortably. Vaginoplasty on the other hand is used to tighten the vaginal muscles, enabling women to regain post-pregnancy tightness.

Breast surgeries

According to Dr Tavakoli, a leading cosmetic surgeon in Australia, breast surgeries are very common today. They have enabled many women to regain their self-confidence and allowed many to achieve the figure they desire. Breast augmentation is used to increase the size of the breasts or to restore the volume of breasts lost through breastfeeding or aging.

Mastopexy or a breast lift is a procedure that is used to improve the shape and position of the breasts. A breast reduction can be done to reduce the size of breasts, giving them a better shape and position. Other breast surgeries that can be done by a plastic surgeon include fat grafting, correction of tuberous breasts and nipple surgeries.


A plastic surgeon that is fully qualified is also known as a specialist plastic surgeon. It is important to get a consultation from a well qualified cosmetic and plastic surgeon with proper expertise. During the consultation, it is important to discuss any body issues you may have that can be corrected as well as any concerns you may have about surgery.
