Looking at nose job before and after rhinoplasty photos

One way we generally judge Charlotte, NC rhinoplasty surgeons is to look at their gallery of before and after photos. Obviously, the after photos should look better, but they should also look different from each other rather than being the same nose on many different faces. They should show the effects of different types of rhinoplasty, with different end results.

Nose job before and after

Nose job before and after

Photos, of course, can be deceptive. Recently there was much speculation among people who devote way too much of their attention to the Kardashians that Khloë Kardashian had gotten a nose job, because the way the light hit her nose made it appear to be a slightly different shape. This is why nose job before and after photos are usually taken at the same angle and in the same light, to make sure there is no confusion.

Different kinds of operations

A common request is for a hump in the bridge of the nose, or a deviated septum, to be straightened and smoothed out. Fixing deviated septums has medical benefits, and correcting this is considered a part of any good nose job.

Another kind of operation is surgery on the tip of the nose, which is sometimes too big or just a little bit droopy. The angle of the nasal tip and the upper lip should be at least 90 degrees, and should be about ten degrees more in women than in men.

According to general rules of facial aesthetics, which apply regardless of the shape of the head, the outer part of the nostrils should be about as wide as the space between the eyes. If they are too wide, the rhinoplasty surgeon may find it necessary to fracture the nasal bones in order to narrow the nose at the top before refining the lower nostrils. While doing this, the surgeon must take care to keep the nostrils perfectly symmetrical, and to make them symmetrical if they aren’t already.
