5 Reasons to Consider Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure used to make changes to the cartilage or bone within your nose. A traditional nose job can enhance the natural contours of your nose and correct issues that may interfere with your breathing.

As an experienced surgeon, Dr. Felix Bopp is highly skilled in customizing a surgical plan to address structural flaws or cosmetic defects in the nose. He may recommend rhinoplasty for medical reasons or as a cosmetic solution when you want to improve the appearance of your nose.

Rhinoplasty is one of the most common cosmetic surgeries performed in the United States, and there are many reasons people elect to or need to have this type of surgery.

Here are 5 reasons you may wish to schedule a consultation with Dr. Bopp to discuss the benefits of rhinoplasty:

1. Alter the size of your nose

If you were born with a nose you feel is too large or too small for your face, rhinoplasty techniques can be used to resize the structure of your nose.  

Dr. Bopp can restructure your nose to achieve a well-balanced look for your entire face, either decreasing or increasing the size of your nose in proportion to the rest of your facial features.

2. Improve your breathing

If your nasal passages are obstructed by structural defects, such as a deviated septum, rhinoplasty can help improve your breathing.

Dr. Bopp creates a surgical plan to repair the nasal passage and eliminate obstructions that block air flow. He can also make adjustments to the structure of your nose to improve its overall appearance.

3. Repair nostril flaws

If you have nostrils that are too wide or if the tip of your nose is enlarged, you can have surgery to remove excess tissue.

Rhinoplasty is an effective treatment option for reshaping the nostrils to improve breathing and to enhance the contours of your nose.

4. Eliminate humps and bumps

If the bridge of your nose is anything but smooth, Dr. Bopp can use surgical techniques to shave off excess bone and eliminate noticeable bumps. He can also add extra bone in depressed areas of your nose caused by injuries or structural defects.

By eliminating these protrusions, Dr. Bopp can help you achieve a straighter bridge and better balance in the overall look of your face.

5. Enhance facial symmetry

Facial symmetry means both the right and left sides of your face are alike. This concept is considered to play a huge role in a person’s attractiveness. The more symmetrical your face is, the more attractive you’re thought to be.

If the position of your nose creates an asymmetrical look to your face, Dr. Bopp can create a surgical plan to reposition it. This may involve changing the shape, size, or angle of your nose to give your face a more balanced appearance.

Making your decision to move forward with rhinoplasty

The decision to have surgery isn’t one to take lightly. After a thorough evaluation of your nose structure and your goals for rhinoplasty, Dr. Bopp can determine if you’re a good candidate.

Like with any surgery, there are health risks to consider, and Dr. Bopp discusses them during your rhinoplasty consultation. He also works closely with you to understand the look you want to achieve so he can create the right surgical plan to ensure satisfaction with your results.
