A nose job (rhinoplasty) is a dramatic cosmetic procedure that can help balance your facial features. The best candidates for rhinoplasty in Tampa are men and women that have suffered a nose injury or were born with a nose that is disproportionate (either too big or too small) in comparison to the rest of the face. A nose job can also correct problems with humps, bumps, bends, lopsided tips or nasal asymmetry. A skilled plastic surgeon can reshape the nose to improve appearance and/or fix breathing problems.
In fact, the word “rhinoplasty” means “nose molding” and it describes the procedure where a surgeon changes the structure of the nose. This can be done by adding or removing bone or cartilage, grafting tissue or placing an implant to alter the shape of the nose. Often, a non-surgical nose job can be done using dermal fillers such as Restylane, Radiesse and Juvéderm to adjust the symmetry of the nose. A non-surgical nose job is a simple procedure that can be accomplished in about an hour by a skilled plastic surgeon in an accredited medical facility. However, the downside is that a procedure done with dermal fillers will not last forever. So for permanent corrections, nose surgery is the only solution.
If you are considering surgical rhinoplasty, then it is important to seek out a facial plastic surgeon that is certified by the American Board of Otolaryngology (Head and Neck Surgery). This type of procedure, while common, is not something to be undertaken lightly or done by less experienced physician. Because the nose is a complicated structure that is involved with the breathing process, working with a well-qualified surgeon is crucial. Before making a decision, make sure to meet with the surgeon in advance to discuss the procedure in detail and be sure that you understand all the options. In some cases, having a non-surgical nose job can be beneficial to allow a patient to “try out” their new look before committing to surgery.
