5 Types of Rhinoplasty Procedures

Nose jobs, or more correctly, rhinoplasty, is the most common type of plastic surgery performed each year. Rhinoplasty also involves reshaping the nose. Rhinoplasty can make your nose symmetrical with your face, enhance it, and also correct defects that affect proper breathing through the nose. In fact there are many types of rhinoplasty procedures that people in Boston take advantage of every day. Nose jobs can correct just about every type of problem that make people unhappy with their nose. Here are some of the top problems that people address via rhinoplasty procedures in Boston, MA:

Crooked Nose

Some people are born with a nose that is somewhat crooked, while other people have had their nose broken resulting in a crooked nose. Sadly many people go through life never noticing that their nose is crooked. This is more apparent when these people look at a photo of themselves than when they look at themselves in the mirror. This is the result of the septum not aligned down the middle of the face, making it appear to lean to one side. The problem often involves other nasal bones at times as well. A rhinoplasty surgeon can reshape these bones and move the septum into the correct position in order to correct this problem.

Long Nose

Some people are unfortunately born with a nose that is far to long. From the front these noses often look completely normal, only becoming apparent when viewed from the side. People who suffer from this condition often shy away from people viewing them from the side. A plastic surgeon can reduce the cartilage and shorten the septum to correct this problem. Sometimes the surgeon will need to remove some skin from inside of the nostrils to correct the issue. The procedure itself is rather routine, and few if any complications can result.

Big Nose

This is one of the most common cosmetic nose problems, where the nose looks to big for the face. This problem is often very easy for a skilled plastic surgeon to address, by reducing the size of the nose. This is often accomplished by reducing the bone structure of the nose and removing some excess skin. A skilled surgeon will reshape your nose to better fit your face, helping to restore your confidence and sex appeal.

Small Nose

The opposite problem of a big nose, these people have a nose that is far to small for their face. This can be the result of a low nasal profile, or the result of an unfortunate accident where the nose has been crushed. Thankfully todays plastic surgeons can address this problem by either transplanting cartilage to your nose or the easier method, which is using an implant.

Nasal Hump

This is when the nose has a bump, hump or unnatural rise to its contours. This is often due to genetics, but it can also be the result of an injury. This problem is rather easy for your surgeon to address, by simply filing down the cartilage.
