A new year, a new look, a new nose

If you want to make a big change in your appearance in the new year, going to a nose job surgeon in Charlotte, NC is a more effective way, and it’s more likely to succeed and last. You can wear dark glasses over your eyes, men can grow beards over their faces, but your nose is in the center of the face, and there’s no way you can hide it. Your nose should complement your other features, not draw attention away from them. If you don’t like your nose, if you spend much time even thinking about it, you might need a nose job surgeon.

It’s no surprise that the nose job is the second most popular form of facial plastic surgery, after eyelid surgery. People seek out nose jobs for a variety of different reasons. One of the most common is to straighten a deviated septum. The septum is the part of the nose between the nostrils. Damage to it is what creates the familiar look of the broken nose. Another common reason is to remove or shrink a hump on the bridge of the nose. Some people just want the tip of their nose reshaped, or to have their nostrils made wider or narrower. Only an experienced nose job surgeon can ensure the nostrils retain their symmetry while doing this.

How nose job surgeons do their job

The shape of the nose is caused by the bone and cartilage under the skin. This is what a nose job surgeon has to reshape. He or she usually hides the scars by making the incisions inside the nostrils. This is called a closed rhinoplasty. If the nose job surgeon has to make an incision in the skin covering the nose, this is called an open rhinoplasty, and the surgeon usually makes the incision in the skin between the nostrils. With male patients, the skin is generally thicker and the shape of the nose less refined.

After the nose job surgeon’s work is done, the patient should expect some swelling, bruising and possibly some numbness of the skin. There’s no telling how long it takes for the swelling to go away, but a few weeks is the most common. Don’t try to decide if you like your new nose until you’re sure the swelling has gone down.
