Nose surgery is one of the key cosmetic facial procedures. Nose procedures can correct the appearance and function of the nose (respiratory). Furthermore, non-surgical rhinoplasty can be used for aesthetic purposes.
Rhinoplasty specialists master all the therapeutic components :
- Appearance of the nose : located at the centre of the face, the nose plays a major part in facial harmony. Rhinoplasty aims at correcting the nose while preserving its natural appearance with proven and reliable techniques.
- Respiratory function : the nose’s breathing function is insured by good patency of the nasal cavity (opening of the nose). Rhinoplasty can restore this function when needed by correcting a deviated septum for instance. The functional component of nose surgery is always taken into account in order to avoid complications or to include the aesthetic component in procedure primarily designed to restore nose function.
Nose surgery is rarely an easy procedure, it require specialized training in order to avoid any type of complication and to meet patients expectations.
Rhinoplasty is a surgery designed to correct aesthetic and / or functional issues of the nose :
- Frequent aesthetic issues are : nasal humps, nostril size, nose ridge alignment, nasal tip size, etc.
- Sometimes, aesthetic issues result from trauma or congenital malformations. In these cases, the procedure is called reconstructive rhinoplasty.
Regardless of the cause of the aesthetic issue, rhinoplasty aims at correcting defects, each procedure being guided by the necessity of a harmonious and natural result.
This technique doesn’t require surgery or recovery and is fairly common nowadays. Also called ‘medical rhinoplasty’, this procedure relies on hyaluronic acid injections. By bringing volume in specific areas, certain defects and imperfections can be corrected without the need for surgery. This approach offers excellent results for good candidates.
