Rhinoplasty experts can do different operations
Rhinoplasty experts in Charlotte, NC can perform more than one type of operation. Different patients want different things from this operation. Some people want operations on their whole nose, while others just want surgery on different parts of it.
The nasal bridge and tip
One of the most common reasons to consult a rhinoplasty expert is to repair a hump or other irregularity on the bridge of the nose. This can be caused by genetics, pressure on the nose during childbirth or an accident in childhood. In some cases, filler injections along the sides may provide a temporary solution, but in other cases, you need a rhinoplasty expert to perform surgery.
If the tip of the nose is just a little too big, or if it droops just a little, it can draw attention away from everything else about the face. Seeing if anything’s wrong with the tip of your own nose is harder than you might think — the best angle to check from is the side, but getting a good look at the side of your face is hard even with a hand mirror. You might need to take a selfie to see it properly. The nasolabial angle, the angle of the nasal tip and the upper lip, should be at least 90 degrees, and should be about ten degrees more for a woman than for a man. A skilled rhinoplasty expert can accomplish this.
The general rule is that the outer edge of the nostrils should be as wide as the space between the eyes. This is true whether your face is broad or narrow. If the nostrils are too wide or slightly asymmetrical, a rhinoplasty expert can narrow or refine them. The surgeon may need to fracture the nasal bones in order to do this, because before the lower nostrils can be narrowed, the upper part of the nose also needs to be narrowed. The surgeon may also need to remove cartilage from the upper nose to add it to the lower nose.
