Nose reduction a common reason for rhinoplasty

One of the most common things customers ask rhinoplasty surgeons for is nose reduction surgery. A nose can be too large in a number of different ways. It can have a bridge that’s just a little too high. It can be too long, with a tip that overhangs a little too much. It can have nostrils that are slightly too wide. Or it can be a combination of these things. If the whole nose, or much of it, needs to be reduced in size, this will require an open rhinoplasty and probably the reshaping of the nasal bone. The end result should be perfectly smooth and symmetrical.

Before you embark on nose reduction surgery in Charlotte, NC, make sure you have a very clear idea of what sort of nose you want. If your nose is too big, it’s easy to think “the smaller the better.” But if a nose is too small, it not only looks wrong, it looks artificial. As with makeup, stage magic, special effects and so many other things, the best nose reduction surgery is the kind that looks like it happened naturally.

Experts on the human face can’t agree how many different kinds of nose shape there are, but the broadest categories of nose are “flat,” “concave,” “convex” and “straight,” each is better suited to a different shape of face, and different communities have different standards of beauty. This is why you need a rhinoplasty surgeon witha good sense of what the right nasal size, shape and proportions are for any given face.

Male and female noses

As a general rule, the skin on a man’s nose is thicker than the skin on a woman’s nose. This makes the nose look less delicate.The bridge of a man’s nose is usually straighter, and the tip forms a different angle to the upper lip.A good nose job surgeon has worked on many, many noses of both men and women, making millimeter-fine adjustments in skin, cartilage and mucous membranes. He or she also needs to be able to talk with patients and understand what they’re asking for.
