If you are uncomfortable with the size or shape of your nose, you have probably tried to hide it for years. Hair styles, make-up, hats, and jewelry are all common ways that people try to draw attention away from an unattractive nose, but, unfortunately, for most people the problem remains a source of self-consciousness and social discomfort. If the appearance of your nose negatively impacts your quality of life, a Dallas rhinoplasty or nose job may be able to help you achieve the appearance you have always desired.
Rhinoplasty is not for everyone, and often the best solution for self-consciousness about your nose is not nose surgery. If you want to get a professional opinion about how best to improve the appearance of your nose and face, please call or email Dr. Vasdev Rai at the Cosmetic Surgical Center in Dallas, Texas.
What a Dallas Rhinoplasty Can Treat
Dallas Rhinoplasty, also commonly called nose surgery or a nose job, is a surgical procedure for changing the size and shape of your nose. It is commonly used to correct:
- Noses that are too large or too wide
- Noses that are crooked
- Noses with a large, soft, or hanging tip
- Nostrils that are too wide
- Bridges that have humps, bumps, or unattractive slopes
- Noses that are sagging or have tip deformity due to age
Virtually any perceived defect in the size or shape of your nose can be surgically improved using a rhinoplasty. Sometimes, rhinoplasty is used to improve the function as well as the appearance of the nose.
Most often, rhinoplasty patients feel that their nose has never been an attractive size or shape. Other times, though, people seek rhinoplasty as part of an attempt to rejuvenate the face. With age, gravity can cause the tip of the nose to change, growing larger and droopier. When this occurs, a rhinoplasty gives excellent results, restoring your nose to a more youthful appearance.
When a Rhinoplasty May Not Be the Answer
Sometimes, people say their nose is too large or is unattractive, but what they are really saying is that a nose is not proportionate to other features of the face. Although a rhinoplasty can be used to reduce the size or improve the shape of the nose in these cases, the result may not be satisfactory. The disharmony among other facial features may actually be increased. In these cases, the best solution is often to use facial implants to increase the size or improve the definition of other facial features, such as the cheeks or chin.
Why Choose Dr. Rai for Your Rhinoplasty
Rhinoplasty is among the most complicated plastic surgery procedures. A surgeon is required to work with numerous delicate tissues of the nose, including cartilage, bone, skin, and other soft tissues. And the results of a rhinoplasty may take up to a year to be visible, requiring a surgical knowledge of the long-term healing progress of the nose. Although many of the skills related to rhinoplasty can be taught, many others only come with experience and the long, slow process of acquiring muscle memory that allows deft, subtle maneuvers to become second-nature. Cosmetic surgeon in Dallas, Dr. Vasdev Rai has 30 years of surgical experience and has performed over 15,000 plastic surgery procedures, including thousands of rhinoplasties, allowing him to finely hone his surgical technique. You can see examples of his results in our Before and after gallery.
