ASK OUR EXPERT – Can the general mass of my nose be made smaller?

Q:  Can you tell me if the general mass of my nose be made smaller by the photos I have enclosed?

 

A: There seem to be two things that are quite obvious, the first one is that there is a greater width at the base of the nose (the radix) and the second one is that there is an obvious disconnect between the bony nose and the cartilaginous nose, that is between the top and the bottom half of the nose.  When the transition between the cartilaginous and bony nose is quite sharp, there is an unsettling disconnect of the nose that nasal surgery can correct by narrowing the bony pyramid of the nose.  The cartilaginous portion of the nose can be tailored at the same time to fit onto the bony nasal dorsum.

Rhinoplasty is one of the most popular procedures performed in my champaign, cosmetic plastic surgery facility today and is one of the most rewarding for our patients. Should you choose to have a consultation for further assessment, we can review before and after photos of real patients with issues similar to yours to give you some idea of the type of results that are generally achieved with a rhinoplasty.

Sincerely,

    I found this information useful and informative. It is interesting how each patient is so different and yet the procedure can still be comparable to other patients in quality and result.
