Cosmetic rhinoplasty is a common plastic surgery procedure

Charlotte, NC residents who are considering having cosmetic rhinoplasty surgery, may feel embarrassed or uncomfortable reaching out regarding the surgery. However, there is no need to be embarrassed. Rhinoplasty is one of the most common plastic surgery procedures. In fact, over 223,000 rhinoplasty surgeries were performed in the United States in 2016, which is more than were performed in America in 2015.

Patients may undergo the procedure to improve their looks

Many patients opt to have rhinoplasty, also known as a nose job, to improve the way they look and feel about themselves. If a patient does not like the look or their nose or perceives a flaw with it, they may suffer from lowered self-esteem. Cosmetic rhinoplasty can help these patients by correcting the flaw the patient sees and helping them feel better about themselves by giving them the nose they desire.

Rhinoplasty surgeons can do a variety of procedures to improve the look of the nose

Some patients may want a narrower nose with smaller nostrils, while others may have an upturned nose they are not fond of. Surgeons will meet with the patient before surgery to see what procedures will work best and what needs to be done to give patients the look they desire.

Rhinoplasty surgeons can reduce the tip of the nose or change its shape if it tips up or droops down. They can also narrow the nose, or remove any bumps along the top of the nose by operating on the bridge of the nose. Finally, doctors can operate on the nostrils to narrow them. This procedure may often be used in conjunction with narrowing the nose when operating on the bridge.

Patients have many things to consider when planning to undergo a cosmetic rhinoplasty surgery

Patients who are opting to undergo a nose job face some big decisions. One of the first things patients need to do is pick a doctor. Patients should research potential surgeons before going under the knife and look for certain qualifications in their potential surgeon.

Patients should browse the before and after pictures on the doctor’s website to see if the after pictures look natural and are in line with what they envision. Patients should also check to see if the surgeon is board certified instead of just licensed. Meet with your potential doctor and see if you feel comfortable with them and in their office.

People will also need to save money to pay for the surgery. Unfortunately, cosmetic rhinoplasty is not covered by insurance companies so patients must pay out of pocket. Your surgeon should be able to provide a quote after your consultation.
